February 9 – National Bagels & Lox Day


Today is National Bagels & Lox Day!

Smoked Salmon @ UrthLox are thin slices of cured salmon which are usually paired with a bagel, cream cheese and capers and is an iconic Jewish-American dish.

Originating in Poland in the 17th century, Jewish families ate bagels at the end of the Sabbath on Saturday evenings. Bagels symbolize the circle of life with Lox symbolizing the saltiness of tears.

The Mid-1800’s the transcontinental railroad shipped salted salmon to the East coast and saw Lox become a popular sandwich filling.

Celebrate this day by partaking in a great Jewish-American tradition. Enjoy a tasty bagel topped with cream cheese, lox, red onion, and capers with maybe a tomato or two!

Strawberry Cream Pie With Sugar Cookie Crust

Did you know that 70% of a strawberry cream pie’s weight comes from the strawberries themselves? That’s a lot considering that the fruit isn’t even in season in September!

When you set out to find the perfect strawberry cream pie there are many variations from which to choose. Some recipes use cream cheese in the filling while others call for whipped cream or custard. Crusts can be sweet or savory, strawberries can be whole or whipped into a mousse, and there are dozens of different toppings.

Find your favorite kind of strawberry cream pie or sample a selection to celebrate Strawberry Cream Pie Day!

National Cream Cheese Brownie Day

Happy National Cream Cheese Brownie Day!!

Could anything be any better than a Cream Cheese Brownie?   I think NOT!

Although there are many different variations of brownies, cream cheese is one of my very favorites.

The swirl of the cream cheese gives the brownie just the right taste of tart and sweet, YUM.

Here is one of my favorite recipes  Raspberry-Cream Cheese Brownies

I love the recipe website.  Make sure you put your zip code in the field provided  (to the right of the word INGREDIENTS).   If there is a $ sign next to an item in the recipe, click on the item and it will tell you which store in your area has the item on sale.   For extra savings make sure to match those items up with any available coupons.   Cha Ching!!   Love it.
