Bagels with Salmon Caviar Cream Cheese

Author Notes: My family recently moved from northern New Jersey to my childhood home in Pennsylvania. After my friends, it's the food I miss the most. You just can't get a good bagel (not to mention many/most other prepared foods) in my new town. Ask any Manhattanite (or NJ suburbanite) where to get the best bagel and prepare yourself for a diatribe about why their favorite bagel maker is the *only* place to go. Disagree, and be warned that you may be risking your life. katylua
