I’ve been counting down. In 21 days, 15 hours, 36 minutes, 31 seconds, I will be back in my hometown, probably a blubbery mess, surrounded by family, as my brother and my soon-to-be sister-in-law exchange vows.

I better remember the tissues this time.

Then there will be food, lots of it. And drinks. And dancing. And cousins (of all ages) grooving on the dance floor.

Besides all this, I can’t wait to get back to New York because it’s been a while since I’ve had a good bagel. A real bagel, loaded with cream cheese and topped with lox. It’s one of those things that I must have every time I go back home.

Trouble is, the list of must-eats grows, and it’s getting too long! It would mean eating every second of the day, and sadly, that is not possible.

Just in case I don’t get to the bagel with smoked salmon, I recently whipped up these Smoked Salmon Phyllo Bites with Wasabi Goat Cheese. I like to think of it as my beloved bagel given a Californian twist. Crunchy phyllo cups are filled with creamy, tangy goat cheese spiked with wasabi, and topped with slivers of salty smoked salmon. I could eat a whole tray of this and call it breakfast, but really, it’s more suited to sharing with friends and easy entertaining.

Maybe even a wedding cocktail hour.

This appetizer is a breeze to pull together, and I love having phyllo cups in the freezer for this very reason. It requires hardly any effort at all to make these elegant hors d’oeuvres.

    Fabulous! First of all, enjoy the wedding! Such a wonderful occasion to celebrate.

    Have we talked about my obsession with smoked salmon? I would eat it straight and be perfectly happy. But, heck, if you’re going to do something with it, I think your bites look pretty darn fantastic.

    This sounds amazing, I love salmon and anything spicy. Thanks for sharing – phyllo must go on my grocery list because this is the second recipe I’ve found this week that is phyllo based.

    Liren these are gorgeous. And I would feel the same if I were blindfolded and someone were to read me the title. They sound insane. Really. So glad you are headed home, and have family and fantastic food waiting for you. I simply love all the wood in this post. The background and the cutting board. Completely smitten.
