Kraft Philadelphia Cooking Creme

Cookie Monster Mike Cookie Monster Mike
Has anyone else tried any of these before? I saw plenty of commercials on TV and they looked interesting, a selection of different flavors and I love Philadelphia Creme Cheese. I know you can make your own cooking creme's at home and such but not everyone has that much time or patience.

So far I have tried the Sante Fe blend and the Savory Garlic. I have cooked up some penne pasta and veges and used the Sante Fe blend along with some mozzarella cheese and that was pretty good. Also tried it on homemade Quesadilla's with a cheese blend and that was really good. The garlic blend I have only added to dishes to enhance flavor and haven't experimented with that one much but it does taste good and can be even used as a dip. As far as cost, they are not cheap, but they can go a long way and be used for multiple meals. I think they cost around $2.78 or $2.48 something like that at the Walmart I sometimes shop at.

I have never tried these but once in a while I like to add some regular cream cheese to spaghetti sauce.

I've been interested in trying them, but haven't as of yet. We like to take a tub of the regular cream cheese and add garlic powder and then dip pretzels in it. So good and sooo bad for you!

So do I! For the last pot roast I made, I minced an entire head of garlic, sauteed it with the onions and then tossed into the bottom of the pan for the roast to sit on. It was so yummy!

That sounds really good lol. My fiancee likes garlic but not like I do, I remember way back at an Italian restaurant I ordered an entree and garlic was the main flavor base, there were huge cloves of tender garlic in it and I ate them as they were. So good, a lot of there original flavor had dispersed throughout the dish so they had lots of garlic flavor but nothing over-powering. I always have garlic stocked up in my kitchen, garlic power, garlic sea salt, fresh garlic, dry minced garlic. Hmm lets see, garlic blend olive and canola oil, garlic parmesean bread dip seasoning etc

Oh man that sounds so heavenly! And a well stocked pantry, indeed. I'm actually out of garlic powder, but I have everything else! Hubby is part Italian, so I can never go wrong with garlic. But, I can't seem to get him into garlic cream sauces. Nothing screams comfort food to me like a big bowl of chicken alfredo with tons of garlic and cream and tender fettucine.

I would love to try these or a home made version of these. But, I am allergic to dairy products and lactose intolerant. Anything other than butter (which has no proteins and little lactose in it) that is dairy is out of the running for me.

For some funny reason, I can tolerate lots of whipped cream cheese on my bagels, but on that one occasion when I added cooking creme to the pasta, it gave me diarrhea.

never tried them, dont think I would. The only things I use cream cheese for in cooking are mashed potatoes, cheesecake, and crepe filling.

The santa fe is awesome! Add it to some penne, spinach, roma tomatoes, corn, and black beans.

I tried the Sante Fe in a few dishes and found it was best mixed in with other things like you just described. I tried it on a quesadilla and it was pretty decent but nothing fantastic. But I like that it has a strong flavor to it so when it is mixed in with pasta, veges etc that it doesn't lose all it's flavor.

I love things like cream cheese on my sauteed vegetables, so I can't see why these would be different, if not better *nodnod* Watching this topic, I'm interested to hear more! ^_^

I have been experimenting with these a bit. Now and then I don't mind the occasional box of kraft mac n cheese. Yes yes yes I know processed nasty unhealthy crap, but it's a classic and I don't mind it from time to time. More specifically the cars and spongebob shapes mac n cheese are the better ones. Something in the powder cheese mixture tastes different for these. So what I have been doing is adding about 1 tablespoon of the kraft philly cooking creme to the mac n cheese when its done. It makes it taste a lot better trust me, I have only used the Savory Garlic and the Italian Herbs & Cheese mixed in. Sure does add a new touch to mac n cheese lol

Oh I use these all the time! I LOVE them to make a quick meal! I'll take leftover chicken, throw in some some fresh (or lefover) veggies, and then add the Italian cheese, garlic, or original flavor to some pasta and voila...dinner is served! I've also made a wonderful and super quick Santa Fe Chicken Enchilada soup from a recipe I found on their website.

If you're not naturally creative, definitely check out their website a they have a variety of recipes.

They are actually pretty good. I've used in recipes that would use soft cream cheese but with a little more flavor.

I had a sample of the Santa Fe one in the store. It was kind of bland and a little too... milky. More so than Alfredo sauce.


The whole concept of cooking creme is nasty to me but the sample proved it.
