Rosemary & Thyme Spread


This recipe was one of those successful concoctions that occasionally happen in the kitchen. My sister, Janna, first happened upon this delicious combinations of spices and cream cheese.

The list of ingredients is very small, but the flavors are wonderful. Next time you’re short on time and need something fast, consider this super-simple spread. No alliteration intended.

    Looks lovely! I wanted to say thank you for the pizza sauce recipe!! It is now our familys favorite and we use it each weekend.

    Also are the crackers in the above photo homemade? If so, is it a recipe you have posted? We are trying to switch over to more homemade “convience” items to include crackers.

    We just got high speed internet in our area and I am so excited at how quickly your blog loads now. It used to take between 5 and 10 minutes, on average!

    Keep up the good work!!

    I am so glad that you use and enjoy my recipes!

    The crackers are not homemade — they are rye crispbreads. My sister, Janna, made something similar once…they were pretty good!

    Thanks for the rosemary dip! Sam’s had rosemary and sea salt focaccia crisps on sale, I impulsively bought 2 huge bags and had no recipes to go with them…now I do, can’t wait to give it a try!
    I too, have a family of 7 (we’re opposite of you, 4 boys, 1 girl)!

    I make a very similar dip – slightly different spices, and it has 3-4 tablespoons of butter smushed in. Try some with butter once, we think it makes a huge difference.

    We spread it on crackers most the time too, but I made stuffed mushrooms with it the other night. It would have been better if I had bread crumbs on top, but they still tasted nice without the breadcrumbs.

    If I’m able to prepare an artichoke the way they did on Food52 (but without the stem), I’m going to try the spread in an artichoke, with breadcrumbs of course. Food52’s movie of how they trim artichokes is under their movies tab.
