Today I want to share a very simple but delicious appetizer idea. You can eat it with crackers or bread. It’s also really good to pair it with salami or ham. A nice drink will add an extra special touch to the experience. . . . 



- 8 oz. cream cheese block (one 8-oz. makes 8 bites)
- Bread slices or crackers
- "Everything But The Bagel" Sesame Seasoning
- Toothpicks or skewers

Cut the cream cheese block into 8 pieces and then roll into small balls.

In a small plate, add the EBTB sesame seasoning and roll the cream cheese bites until covered. Then stick the skewer and it’s all done!

Adding them onto a platter will make these bites look more appetizing than they already are. A nice iced drink with fresh fruit is the perfect touch. Orange juice with sparkling cider is my favorite combination. Don’t forget the fresh fruit. (; 



Hola! My name is Lally Acedo. I am a 26-year-old food & lifestyle blogger from Northern California. I have been married for a little over 4 years to the love of my life, Sergio. Married life is amazing! I’ve loved cooking since I was a little girl, but marrying my husband made me find my true passion for food. My husband and I enjoy making meals together, watching cooking shows, and visiting restaurants to try new dishes. I am a homebody for sure. Cultivating a home that my husband, family, and friends can come to and experience a peaceful and joyful atmosphere is very important to me. One of the prayers I pray every morning is that God’s love and peace are poured out into every person that steps into our home. I believe food is a great way to bring people together and create new memories. Whether it’s a big meal, an appetizer, or simply a cup of coffee, as long as it's made with love, it’s more than enough.
