Today is National Bagels & Lox Day!
Lox 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!

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
