Food Friday: Lox Spread from Florida

I was pleasantly surprised this week when a package arrived with some community cookbooks sent by my friend and fellow genealogist Debbe Hagner, AG.

One of the cookbooks she sent was this one with a title no one can resist, The Happy Cookers from Temple Ahavet Shalom Sisterhood, Palm Harbor Florida. You've got to love a cookbook with a sense of humor. Plus there are over 300 pages of recipes.

Besides the names associated with each recipe, there is also a list of those who served on the cookbook committee.

So for Food Friday, I thought I would feature a recipe that I would love to try. One of my favorite breakfast dishes would be bagels and lox and of course lox spread is equally delightful .


  1. Oooh, lox and cream cheese is also one of my favorite breakfasts. Just had some last Saturday morning at Bruegger's Bagels in West Roxbury, MA, while visiting our nephew.

    Cucumbers and green onions sound even better than capers. Thanks!

  2. As I was reading this post, I thought, "Hey, my husband and his family used to live in Palm Harbor." I scroll down, and lo and behold my mother-in-law's name is listed as one of the Happy Cookers Committee members! Small world.

  3. As I was reading through your post, I thought, "Hey, my husband and his family are from Palm Harbor." Then when I scrolled down, I found my mother-in-law's name (Sue Rifkin) listed as one of the Happy Cookers Committee members. Small world!

  4. Rachel,

    Do you have this cookbook? If not, let me know and I will copy the recipes she submitted for you.
