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.

Peas are a harbinger of spring. They first arrived in America by way of England during the early 1600s. Peas are early bloomers, they are one of the first crops to be harvested from the garden each spring. Thomas Jefferson was a fan of peas and grew around 30 varieties in his garden at Monticello. According to his family history, Jefferson was the originator of the Charlottesville neighborhood pea contest. Whoever produced the first peas of the season would host a community dinner with at least one dish containing the newly harvested peas. I love this idea!
This Spring Pea Guacamole is lighter and much lower in fat than traditional guacamole. It will stay a bright green color, unlike the avocado version which tends to brown, so it’s perfect for serving at parties and buffets. Green peas are high in vitamin K, they’re loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits, and they also support blood sugar regulation. In addition to all of this, they taste like spring!

More about Raw-Milk Cheese Since cheese was first discovered many millennia ago it has been made with pure raw milk. In fact, it was only in the last century that cheese began to be made with pasteurized milk. Traditional cheesemaking was a way of preserving fluid milk that in the millennia before refrigeration was prone to spoilage in just a few short days. The natural microflora in raw-milk produces cheese - such as Comte, Le Gruyère, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Roquefort, and many American originals - that are characteristic of local environments, expressive of terroir, evocative of complex flavors, and beneficial to health. Raw-milk cheeses are not only delicious; they’re nutritious. Scientific studies reveal that, when consumed in moderation, cheese is a tremendous way to add healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and probiotics to your diet.
