Quick And Easy Recipe Ideas Using Cream Cheese

Posted on 04 January 2011 by admin

If you’re a cream cheese lover then you’ll want to know how to incorporate it into every meal and snack of the day. Here’s a few ideas to try out:


Spread fruit toast with light cream cheese; top with fruit.

Spread 2 slices of bread with light cream cheese spread. Top one bread with 1/2 banana, sliced and the other bread with raisins. Close together to make a breakfast sandwich you’ll remember.

Cut apple into slices; remove and discard core. Spread with light cream cheese; sprinkle liberally with your favourite cereal, chopped nuts, or raisins. Yum!


For quick and easy appetizer nibblers, spread cream cheese on flour tortillas. Top with desired sliced deli or cooked meats and vegetables; roll tightly. Slice on the diagonal.

Spread cream cheese on water crackers, toasted pumpernickel or dark rye rounds. Sprinkle with chopped dill or chives; top with smoked salmon. Works a treat!

Try mixing together 1/2 cup cream cheese with 1 grated carrot and 1/4 cup dried cranberries – or maybe give some dried fruit a try? Fill stalks of celery with mixture; cut into bite-size pieces.


Tuna and Salsa Dip:
Combine 1 pkg (250g) cream cheese with 1/2 cup tuna, or perhaps some prawns, 1/4 cup salsa, and 2 Tbsp. chopped coriander. Serve with crackers, doubt you’ll regret it.

Tuscan Dip:
Blend 1 pkg (250g) cream cheese, softened, with 2 Tbsp. sour cream. Add 1/2 cup finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained, 1/2 cup chopped black pitted olives, and 1/4 cup finely chopped red onions. Glass of Chianti optional.

Dill Sauce/Dip:
Ready? Place 1 sliced green onion, 1 garlic clove, and 1 Tbsp. fresh dill in food processor; process until finely chopped. Add 1 pkg. (250 g) cream cheese, 3 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt; process until smooth. Spoon over grilled vegetables, or place in a bowl for dipping. Hey presto, you’re a domestic goddess (or god, as the case may be!)


Fruit and Nut Bites:
Try topping crackers with cream cheese and jam (strawberry’s good!); sprinkle with a few toasted sliced almonds. Works for me!

Croque Monsieur (AKA Fancy Toasted Sandwich):
Spread 1 Tbsp. of cream cheese on a toasted thick slice of crusty bread. Top with sliced ham and shredded cheese; grill until cheese (or partner’s heart) is melted.

Party Cheese Ball:
Blend 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese with 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened. If you like, add 1 Tbsp. port wine. Wrap in a sheet of plastic wrap and shape into a ball. Refrigerate about an hour or so before unwrapping. Roll in paprika or very finely chopped toasted nuts. How’s that for a block party? Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Try this: spread flour tortilla with cream cheese. Sprinkle with grated carrot and a few raisins. Roll up tightly, cut in half, and devour!

Whether eaten on a bun or by itself, sausage with peppers is a delicious meal to make for you and your family.  My first encounter with this tasty sandwich was at a county fair when I was a youngster.  It basically consisted of spicy Italian sausage, onions, green pepper and a tomato based sauce.  Since then I have tried many different variations of this comfort food favorite.  You can experiment with different sauces, peppers, onions and sausage to create your own masterpiece.  Here are a couple quick and easy sausage and peppers recipes for you to try, just in time for Football Sunday!

Quick and Easy Recipes for Party Foods and Appetizers

Posted on 04 January 2011 by admin

Even the shiest of individuals can be drawn into the group by good food.  Get your party off to a great start by serving a good selection of appetizers and beverages while your friends get acquainted.  Here are three quick and easy recipes for some tasty party foods.  Artichoke Pepper Spread is a delicious spread that is served warm with assorted party breads or crackers.  The Quick and Easy Cracker Appetizers offer two different types of crackers for two different types of taste.  Yet they are about as quick and easy as you can get!  The Spinach Parmesan Dip is great with crackers or fresh veggies.  To get more veggies into the mix, I would suggest serving this dip with a tray of fresh vegetables.

1 can (14-oz) artichoke hearts, drained
1 jar (6-oz) marinated artichoke hearts, drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (4-oz) diced green chili peppers, drained

Place all the drained artichoke hearts in a blender container or food processor. Cover and process until finely chopped. Stop machine and scrape down sides of bowl when necessary. Transfer artichokes to a medium saucepan; stir in the cheese and chili peppers. Cook, stirring, over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes or until heated through and the cheese has melted. Serve warm with party breads and/or assorted crackers.

Graham crackers
Whole-Grain crackers
1 tub cream cheese
orange marmalade
jalapeno jelly

Spread the crackers with the soft-style cream cheese. Top the cream cheese on the Graham crackers with the orange marmalade. Top the whole-grain cream cheese crackers with the jalapeno jelly. With this one quick and easy recipe, you have appetizers for two very different tastes to serve your guests. 


1 pkg (10-oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 cup mayonnaise style salad dressing
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 can (8-oz) water chestnuts, drained & chopped
1/8 tsp ground red pepper

In a medium bowl, blend the salad dressing and sour cream together. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and red pepper. Add the spinach and water chestnuts, stir to blend well. Cover and chill. Serve with assorted crackers and/or fresh vegetables.

Yield: 4 cups

Finding Quick And Easy Recipes

Posted on 04 January 2011 by admin

Have you done a search for a quick and easy dinner recipe lately? I ask because I noticed something interesting the other day when I did a Google search for a quick and easy recipe for dinner this past weekend.The thing about that search that struck me as funny was the fact that all I had to search for was quick and easy, I did not have to mention what was quick and easy that I was looking for. No mention of dinner, appetizers, meals or another one hundred ways to cook a chicken nothing no mention of food or cooking what so ever.

I suppose it struck me as funny because I could think of quite a few things that I would look for that were quick and easy and none of them involve food. Yet when I tried to search just on quick and easy for all three major search engines they all assumed that I was looking for quick and easy recipes. Yes it’s true that quick and easy recipes is exactly what I was looking for and for the most part they all gave basically the same food sites to find quick and easy recipes.

Just got me thinking how often people around the world must be looking for quick and easy recipes that all I have to type now is quick and easy. I did find a delicious recipe for a chicken and pasta dinner with diced red peppers and yes it was quick and easy! This also got me to thinking about how the concept of spending a decent amount of time to cook a good meal with more than five ingredients has become a lost art form really. Some of the most popular cooking shows on the Food Network for example are all about limiting your ingredients and preparing your meals in thirty minutes or less.

I reflect on the cooking habits that go on in our house and I would have to say that the only time we spend more than a half hour on any meal usually means we are cooking a holiday feast. Other wise I suppose we are like everyone else looking for short cuts to making our meals. This led me to another thought about all these quick and easy meals that perhaps all this short cut cooking that we all do and cutting back on ingredients is part of the reason so many people are fighting obesity and poor health. Not to say that quick and easy recipes are not healthy but that maybe they are missing some of the key ingredients and nutrients that we used to get in our daily nutrition but are now being shorted in the interest of saving time and money.

Quick and Easy Recipe for making Cookies with Gelatin Mix

Posted on 03 January 2011 by admin

Everyone loves homemade cookies but some of us think we don’t have the time to make them.  Wrong!  It doesn’t have to take all day or evening to whip out a delicious batch of homemade goodies.  For parents or grandparents of young children, I believe it is especially important to have them in the kitchen once in awhile to help you bake.  Here is a good simple recipe for those who think they don’t have the time!  These Gelatin Cookies are good ones to make with children.  They love pressing the dough balls down with a sugared glass.

3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 pkg (3-oz) fruit flavored gelatin (your choice)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl,cream the shortening and sugar together until smooth. Add the dry gelatin mix, eggs, and vanilla; mix well. In a separate bowl mix the baking powder, flour, and salt together. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix together well. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls. Press onto a greased cookie sheet with a small glass, the bottom dipped in sugar. (Rub a small amount of shortening on the bottom of the glass to get sugar to stick the first time. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned.

Note: You can add a couple of drops of food coloring to enhance the color of the gelatin, if desired.
