a little pizazz with herb cheese

If you're looking to add a little zip to your food, this herb cheese is wonderful on everything from poached chicken to homemade bread to soups. A little of this garlic and herb cheese will put some sparkle on your tongue. It's creamy, chock a block full of tarragon and chives, and is a great way to use those chives that are growing fiercely in the garden.

To make:
In mixer bowl add:
8 oz. soft cream cheese
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1/2 t. worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. dijon mustard
1 T. fresh parsley, minced
1-2T. minced fresh chives
1 t. dried tarragon
1 garlic clove, pressed
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all in mixer bowl and taste carefully. It usually needs salt. Serve in soups for a little interest, on bread, nudged under the skin of chicken before you cook it - and on the side with some slivers of poached chicken, in a roast beef sandwich, whipped into hot boiled potatoes, or with fish. Crudites? Mais oui!
