  2. Made this for my toddler’s lunch today spread inside a whole wheat pita. He didn’t leave one crumb in his plate and I gave him a whole pita! I made one for myself and I loved it too. Great with some celery as well.

  3. Spread this inside mini whole wheat pitas and added a cucumber slice. YUM! Thank you for another great idea!

  4. Thanks Catherine! I really appreciate the quick response. I can’t say enough about how great your website is!

  5. Its usually by the jarred items like olives and artichokes and pepperoncinis

  6. Where can you find the sun-dried tomatoes? I’ve seen you reference them a few times and how you always try to have them on hand. Is it in a particular place in the store? Thanks! This recipe sounds super yummy!!!!

  7. I have not tried it but i’m sure you can! Just puree these fruit and then add the cream cheese and blend. Since the fruit is fresh , I am not sure how long it will last. You can even try it with dried fruit. Let me know how they turn out!

  8. My husband, daughter and I ate a batch of this spread in 4 days! I am making my second right now! We loved it on toast, sandwiches, wraps, whatever! My 2 year-old called it “pizza”…she ate it up…yee-haw!

    Can you make other flavored cream-cheeses the same way? Like fruit flavored? I assume strawberries would work, or would it be too watery?

  9. I can’t wait to try this! I don’t feed my kids lunch meat and I have one who isn’t a big meat fan anyways, and it seems like he’s always eating cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches or wraps. I will definitely try this as an alternative, and I’ll bet it’s good with spinach.

    For my toddlers, I often make pinwheel (tea) sandwiches, and this would be great for that. Thanks!

  10. I love making my own sun dried tomatoes in the oven – do you think those would work? They’d be lower calorie too since they wouldn’t be packed in oil – right?
