February 9: National Bagels and Lox Day, National Pizza Pie Day

Quote of the Day
“The bagel is a lonely roll to eat all by yourself because in order for the true taste to come out you need your family. One to cut the bagels, one to toast them, one to put on the cream cheese and the lox, one to put them on the table and one to supervise.”
Gertrude Berg (1899-1966)

“A bagel creation that would have my parents turning over in their graves is the oat-bran bagel with blueberries and strawberries. It’s a bagel nightmare, an ill-conceived bagel form if there ever was one.”Ed Levine, ‘New York Eats’

LOX on Bagel Recipes, The Best of the Best….

“Believe it or not, American’s eat 75 acres of pizza a day.”Boyd Matson, TV journalist

Today is also National Pizza Pie Day in which Chef Nisa Burns who in honor of this day, share’s this easy Margherita Pizza recipe with you, which you can also find her college cook book at,Kitchenability 101….. link below!
Easy for College Students and beginners to try out, now this is a recipe book all College or University students should have when living on their own, since working at Centennial College Residence & Conference Centre for the last 10 years, students share a small kitchen to do there cooking which I’ll notice alot of frozen pizza is bought along with ording takeout, instead of trying to make it home made which is the healthy choice if they had the time and money.
