  • “Excellent!This recipe made enough for two occasions. I didn’t have any marjoram on hand so I left it out and didn’t miss it at all.I served it with little dipping bread sticks.I’ll be making this often! You saved me lots of money, too.I have been purchasing this at our local farmers market for $3.50for a tiny container!!!! Thanks!!!”

  • “This is an easy and delicious boursin recipe.Even using the dried herbs, this recipe is very flavorful.I let the low-fat cream cheese and Blue Bonnet margarine sit out till room temp, and was able to combine everything nicely by hand.This made two good-sized logs, and I am planning to freeze one!A definite keeper!”

  • “So easy and delicious … whipped it up at the last minute (usually ingredients you have on hand) for a pot-luck appetizer and it was a hit.I doubled the garlic (personal taste).Will use this often.”

  • “I halved the recipe and that is plenty! I didn’t have dried basil or marjoram so I just used Italian seasoning instead and it turned out so yummy. Great recipe.”

  • “When first made and used on a baked potato I wasn’t bowled over by this recipe.The next day I spread some on a toastedbagel though and loved it.It does have a strong garlic flavor. I can see many lovely uses for this spread.Thank you for sharing your recipe!”
