Apples are great, but coffee is invigorating! And, as it turns out, pretty good for you also.
As reported in the NY Times today, it seems that coffee is on the list of foods (drinks) that help us in more ways that the obvious. So drink up! Zabar's Coffee Beans are custom roasted each week, with precision and love.

Sweet, earthy carrots, inviting cinnamon and nutmeg flavor this moist and delicious cake. Just right for dessert, a mid-afternoon snack or even breakfast! Carrot Cake stands our as a comfort dessert food while at the same time being so versatile and adaptable - there are almost infinite ways to make one.
This is a delicious recipe that I've modified from my favorite muffin recipes. It's a bit sweeter and more moist, which pushes the carrot yum factor over the top. The twist is the Plum Butter Swirl filling. It is reminiscent of the traditional addition of raisins, but smooth and even more delicious. This Plum Butter is directly from Tori Avey's Hamentashen recipe (see her full recipe here, where you can find other filling ideas for pastries and cookies as well: Lekvar Plum Butter - Prune Filling for Hamantaschen). This is a delightful jam, that once set into the cake provides a beautiful swirl, adding sweetness and moisture and is a very nice flavor companion to the carrots.
Just for the record, Zabar bagels are amazing! They toast well on the outside but are amazingly soft on the inside, and the flavor is mouth-watering. Haven't had a NY bagel in a decade and these were worth waiting for. I shared with friends & neighbors who Loved them also! Angelic
Just a note to thank you for the WONDERFUL NY BAGELS. I am sure you won't be surprised to know that once we tasted the bagels, we wanted to order some more. Now that we know how to get them, we won't have to be bagel deprived any more.
Warm Regards, Judy Chicago
And for the follow up review:
The second round of bagels arrived, thanks much. Turns out that some of our friends here in NM also love bagels so we're going to share a few (not too many). Who knows? They might end up being as addicted to them as we have become.
