Smoked Salmon + Cream Cheese Cucumber Bites

How many of us have spent countless hours pinning decor, food, or fashion ideas onto our Pinterest boards only to hope ONE DAY we would actually turn those ideas into reality? Count me in.

I started to challenge myself to recreate something from Pinterest at least once a month.  It has to be simple and fairly quick with zero to minimal prepping time.  Nowadays, I live minute by minute and each minute has to count.

When I stumbled upon these smoked salmon + cream cheese cucumber bites from BakerByNature, I knew this was one I can handle. I made these petite bites one night after work and they were really fast to assemble.

My version included English cucumber (no peeling b/c I like the crunch), whipped cream cheese, and smoked sockeye salmon embellished with dill and capers.  Finally, I topped them off with these adorable mini forks.

They were soo yummy and served as perfect little starters.  Hope you’ll join me in challenging yourself to recreate something from your Pinterest boards.  Would love to check out what you’ve done so please share the link in the comment box.

What do you think about my inspired recreation? Please share your thoughts!
