This recipe was just OK to me. Though I didn't dislike it I have so many spread recipes that I like so much more. Read More

I doubled this recipe for a New Year's party. Using 4 Tbsp. of lemon juice was a big mistake! Too lemon-y. Ugh. But okay on a Wheat Thin. I can't comment on the original recipe but I will NOT be using that much juice again (only 1 Tbsp. for the normal serving size). Other than that everyone seemed to enjoy the cheese ball. I would make this again. I also think it's easy to adjust by adding some different herbs. Overall it's a keeper. Read More

This is really good-let this sit in the fridge a while before serving so the flavors can blend properly. Read More

I served this to my family and guests during the holidays---EVERYONE loved it! I was concerned about the herbs being too "serious " but it was perfect and I'll make it again. Read More

I thought that this was really good. I served it on some sliced baguette toasts brushed with a little olive oil. I love garlic and I never care how much garlic something has but I served this at a get together and some people weren't crazy about how strong the garlic came through (so if you are serving it at something...I would suggest only 1 clove of garlic.)

Great flsvour.... I used 1 large clove of garlic and 1 tsp lemon & dill seasoning and being the winter time I used all dry ingredients 1 tsp of each and it was absolutely wonderful. I will definately make this again and in the summer I will try fresh herbs... thanks for the good recipe. Read More

This is good stuff. I am not sure where I originaly found this recipe but i have been making it for a long time. Since it is "seriously herby" I use it to stuff veges. Like hollowed out cherry tomatoes and radishes celery snow peas and cucumber rounds. Every time I make them people ask me for the recipe. Read More

I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong with this when the softened cream cheese was so difficult to combine with the other ingredients. So I added a little milk and beat it with an electric mixer. That was a bad idea. As it sits in the fridge it somehow comes together and softens. Our friends loved the flavor but I thought it was too runny so next time I'll stick to the original recipe. I think I might try whipped cream creese too. Read More

Pretty good stuff. I don't like olives so left that out. I made only part of the recipe just for me to try it out used on Club crackers. This is very easy to make which is a real plus especially if making for a gathering to keep the work load down. I do have to add though that trying to put it in a mold seemed like a terrible idea because it's just too sticky. Won't be trying that again... just make a ball or something. Read More
