Daddy Cooks – PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme

philadelphia cooking creme

About 90% of the time, I am the one in the family that makes the to trip to the grocery store for the week’s food. Like I have mentioned before, with a larger family, I am always looking to make plenty for everyone without breaking the bank to feed my household. Another thing I look for, other than a great bang for my buck, is something that is easy to make and does not consume a lot of my time.

Philadelphia Cooking Creme

This past week, while I was milling through the refrigerator area of my local grocery store, I came across some PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme. I looked over the container and found a pretty easy recipe to try. PHILADELPHIA Cooking Creme is a blend of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese with various herbs and cheeses. With 6 different flavors that includes Italian Herb, Savory Garlic, Savory Lemon & Herb, Creamy Pesto, Original, and Santa Fe blend, it was a tough choice on where to begin. I ended up buying the Creamy Pesto flavor to make a Creamy Chicken Pesto & Bowtie Pasta.
