These Every Morning Blueberry Muffins are the perfect way to enjoy the bountiful blueberries we're now seeing at our markets here in NYC. I love this recipe because it has more blueberries per muffin than your average one, it's just sweet enough and there's a secret to this recipe! You can prepare the ingredients in the evening and when your morning alarm sounds just mix them together and pop them in the oven. By the time you're dressed you'll be enjoying warm, fresh blueberry muffins!
Open flames & grill drippings are one way to tackle a steak. I prefer to make mine in a good old fashioned cast iron pan. It can stand getting amazingly hot and produce a perfect crust on the steak. The only tricks to an amazing steak are 1. start with a great steak, 2. get the heat right, and 3. let the steak rest when it's done cooking before slicing it. That's it. Enjoy!

It is with profound sadness and deep affection that Zabar's announces the passing of Harold Horowytz, Zabar's Deli Director, on May 15, 2016. Harold Horowytz was one of the last of the old-school New York deli men. Born in 1928, he grew up over his father’s grocery store in New Jersey. There he learned every facet of the business as he participated in its transformation over the decades before joining Zabar’s in 1972. During the next 20 years he was a guiding force behind Zabar's deli department and Zabar's kitchens. Harold cured his own pickles, sourced the finest cold cuts and sliced the leanest pastrami and tenderest brisket. He was known by his customers as a true New York deli maven. A deep affection and special bond was shared between Harold and anyone who had a chance to work with him. He made the hard work and quick pace of working in the deli department seem easy, calling everyone "kid" with a NY sense of humor that was unique to him. Harold's reach went beyond the deli counter at Zabar's. His advice was sought after and he was respected as a confidant and a beloved figure throughout the store. Though Harold officially retired in 1992 he continued to shape Zabar's deli department. Each holiday season he would return to supervise the department and serve customers. He continued to work closely with Saul Zabar throughout the year from his home in North Carolina. Harold is survived by his loving family including his wife Vera, and children Mark (Rae) Horowytz, Roni (Jim) Ackerman, Sheri (Craig) Tendler, 8 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and many friends.
Two years ago, this wonderful article was written about Harold. It captures his personality, humor and energy so well.

I just wanted to introduce you to our new family member, Zabar. Zabar is a Tamaruke Labradoodle from Australia who is only two weeks old and will be joining our family as our first family dog when we leave New York in four weeks' time.
We are an Australian family who have lived in on the Upper West Side for the past three years. Zabar's has been our local go-to everyday. It's welcoming warmth that we've felt every time we come in and the friendliness of your staff has left such an impression on us and we will be leaving with very fond memories of your store. And so we had to name our first family pet after you! Thank you, Zabar's.
Asparagus has arrived! In New York it's here, one of our favorite spring time treats. It’s best fresh and new. Look for ones that aren’t too large. If you only can find the larger ones just peel them before you use them, they’ll be just as tender that was as the young ones.
When you serve this very simple recipe it will feel elegant. It’s great along with a soup for lunch or dinner and makes a very nice addition to brunch.
The only prep you really need to do is getting your puff pastry out of the freezer and ready to use. The rest is a breeze.
