    Is it possible to make this without using a food processor or blender? I have a hand mixer but I'm not sure that would do the trick

    This was very good, easy to make as well. I just put the garlic thru the garlic press and whipped everything up in the Kitchen Aid mixer. I also substited Herbs de Provence for the marjoram (couldn't find any in the cupboard). I was afrraid the garlic would be overpowering but it really wasn't.

    Oh my, oh my, oh my...this is SO good, I hate it. LOL! I made up half a batch to see if it was something I wanted to add to my gift baskets and I cannot stay out of it (spread on Ritz crackers). I will be mixing some up to give as gifts and will include a hand written note with suggestions on the many different ways to use it. Thanks, Merlot. This is a winner! UPDATE: I froze some of this and am happy to report that it freezes very well. Even after being frozen, the wonderful taste and creamy texture don't change.

    Very easy to whip up and tastes delicious! I had to make it without the dill, as my hubby is allergic, but it still came out great! On french bread it's TDF! Thanks for a great recipe, Merlot!

    This turned out so tasty, but I did have to add quite a lot more garlic for my tastebuds. I served it at a party with fresh bread and it was well received. I am glad I have made extra to freeze.

    WONDERFULL!!!!! I used 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese and garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. That way it can be kept a very long time in the fridge without freezing. Wonderful to have for the holidays.Thanks so much.Koechin


Since I do not have a Premium Membership, I am unable to thank all you folks personally for trying and reviewing my recipes. So in order to show my appreciation, I will thank you by trying and reviewing one of YOUR recipes. Now, a little about me . . . It's hard to believe I've been a member for over 7 years now! Once I discovered Zaar, I never looked back at the other sites. This place is truly like family, sitting around sharing great recipes, helpful hints and just chit-chatting about our daily lives. Hubby and I were fortunate enough to be able to retire early and now enjoy traveling in our motorhome :) . Our travels have taken us all over this great country of ours and meeting new and exciting people along the way is an extra bonus. We are blessed. We usually alternate between Florida Keys and Arizona for the winters. The rest of the year, you can find us just about any place. We love our home on the lake, but there is a bit of gypsy in us both and we hit the road as much as we possibly can. I subscribe to Taste of Home and own EVERY Southern Living Annual since 1979. I guess my biggest pet peeve is people who are negative all the time. Because I enjoy life so much, I try to avoid such people. Life is too short.
