We are already in the middle of summer. And in the middle of our summer holiday with Yiannis, trying to relax as much as possilble (sometimes it’s just impossible) and get ready of the upcoming winter.

I confess I have no desire to cook anything hot. My mind is dreaming of smoothies, ice-creams and everything frozen. These cheese bites can get you motivated to enter your kitchen. It is an immediate hit every time I make them. I used to make them with Philadelphia cheese stick when it was available in Greece (now it’s not : ( )  αυτό. I really miss this cheese from time to time. In any case the classic cream cheese makes the job. If you follow my tip in assembling them you will be just fine. The specific cheese bites were made of the Blogger’s Wine Night Vera hosted. You can see all about it here.

And now imagine: outdoors, white wine and these cheese bites… Are you thinking anything better for tonight?
