If you are into couponing at all, you probably received some high value coupons for the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme. I was a little skeptical at first, thinking this was like alfredo sauce in a carton, and wondering how on earth such a little container could substitute for the large jars that I typically use for a meal at our house! I purchased three (one was free, and the other two almost free), determined to at least give it a try.
One night Greg had grilled some chicken, and he was all out of the secret recipe spray that he uses, so I decided to spice mine up a bit using the above pictured creme. Using a little oil and Mrs. Dash, I sauteed some fresh green onion, tomatoes, and mushrooms until they were tender. I microwaved just a little bit of the creme, and drizzled it across my grilled chicken, then topped with the veggies.
I have to say that I was not prepared for the intensely delicious flavor that awakened my taste buds! Ruby Tuesday's (or any of the others) can't even come close to the taste of that dish!
I repeated the process again the other night, and this is what it looked like. Although the veggies sauteed a little too long, and my side dishes were less than appealing, that cooking creme does not disappoint! I'm excited to try the Santa Fe flavor in a dip sometime soon.
So...try the Philly Cooking Creme if you're looking for something to liven up the mealtime blahs. A little goes a LONG way, and the taste is well worth the $!
