Radical Review Wednesday: Philadelphia Cooking Creme

I had a free coupon for the new Philaelphia Cooking Creme and couldn't wait to try it! BTW, in the ads, these look huge, but in reality they are small - 10 oz. I bought the Italian Cheese and Herb flavor and decided to go with a recipe on the box - Creamy Italian Chicken & Orzo Skillet.

But, if you are a reader of my blog you know - I can never cook the way a recipe says. Usually i don't have or like the ingredients so I "make it my own."

Mine looked a lot different but tasted as good as this probably does!

This recipe calls for orzo - didn't have, so I used rice; zucchini - don't like and didn't have so I used onion; and tomatoes - I THOUGHT I had a can but didn't. However, the dish was still delicious and so creamy!!!

I LOVED the cooking creme! The flavor was outstanding! All of the spices that I try to use but somehow they taste better in this creme.  The nutritionals aren't TOO bad, but it is really high on fat. I would only use this on occasion.

Highly recommend this!

  1. In general I have liked this product as well. One drawback is that it really doesn't reheat well.... and we always have leftovers!
