We LOVE garlic but this cheese log had a strange flavor and was very dry and crumbly...won't make again. Read More

I got so many compliments on this when I served it. The flavors are excellent together and it makes a lot. Sometimes I skip the cracker and eat it by itself! Delicious! Read More

This is a keeper! I only had mild cheddar so I tried half a batch and it was great. Next time I will definitely go buy some extra sharp cheddar. I used my food processor to mix and toasted my pecans first. We also didnt wait for it to chill I just scooped it into a bowl and served as a spread. For Chritmas I will probably form the logs as suggested and roll in paprika and some finely curshed parsley. Read More

Good and flavorful! I made this into a ball instead of logs and rolled it in the pecans. Added some dried chives for color. Used Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese and neufchatel cheese with light mayo. Happy New Year! Read More

I added a few good sized splashes of worcestershire auce. The recipe is plenty to make two balls instead of one log...one to take and one to save. lol Everyone really enjoyed this. Read More

This is my favorite party appetizer and I look forward to eating it at my Christmas party every year. I'm salivating now just thinking about it! I add just a little bit more mayo to make it less crumbly and make a cheese ball instead of logs. Read More

This is a quick and easy way to please just about everyone! I did add the nuts in the log itself and then rolled the log in the nuts too. My daughter made this for a class Thanksgiving party and said it was gone in no time. Read More

This turned out really good! I couldn't stop eating it. I used a little extra garlic though because I thought it needed a little more. I made it for a get together and everyone LOVED it. Thanks for the recipe Read More
