Zucchini Rolls with Cream Cheese

As zucchini season is in full swing I want to share a recipe for this amazing appetizer: zucchini rolls with cream cheese, garlic and fresh herbs stuffing.

I must say it is one of my favorite finger foods. I think I can eat the whole plate of these by myself.

Use mandoline to slice zucchini here, it will make life much easier and will speed process up a lot.

If you want to reduce oil intake – roasting zucchini in the oven in grilling skillet can be an option to.

Salmon and Cream Cheese Spread

Quick recipe for an appetizer you can put together on a minutes notice (if you have ingredients of course): salmon and cream spread.

Once ready, you can set it up on cucumber slices, or crackers you like. Or in less fancy fashion (and also quicker) spread it on a bread toast.

I used hand blender to here, because I wasn’t sure how my cup blender will react to not-so-liquid mixture. Either one you plan to use, just make sure cream cheese and salmon are well blended into homogeneous mixture.

How to Make Cream Cheese Frosting

This is this time of the year for pumpkin cookies. And what pumpkin cookie doesn’t taste even better with cream cheese frosting?

So, if here is a quick how-to for cream cheese frosting.

Disclaimer: amount of powdered sugar is some what moving target here, it all depends on how sweet you want frosting to be. I don’t like it too sweet, so my amount is about 8 tablespoons.

So my advice is: start adding sugar gradually, taste from time to time and stop when it is as sweet as you want it.

Amount of ingredients mentioned in the recipe is enough for batch of pumpkin cookies. Adjust amounts if you plan to do more or less, or use it for a pumpkin roll or cake which requires more of frosting.
