Yes I did
You are looking at cream cheese sitting the the cheesecloth I wrapped it in to drain. And, I just want to say one more time. Yes I did.
Ok, Ok, now that we’ve gotten past my gloating, it’s not TECHNICALLY cream cheese… Its Labneh – A middle eastern cheese that’s easy to make if you’re already making yogurt, which I am.
It tastes and acts a lot like cream cheese and you can use it just like cream cheese, at least I think you can. I used it to top my chicken and bean casserole instead of cream cheese.
This casserole is soo easy too. Its just shredded chicken, 2 cups of beans (any kind), 1 cup of corn, 1 jar of salsa – bake until bubbly and melt in cream cheese or labneh 🙂
But, my real victory this week was the garlic peppercorn pork tenderloin I made to replace the one I used to buy at Trader Joe’s. I used this recipe http://garliclover.com/post/2339835327/garlic-and-peppercorn-pork-tenderloin and it is to die for delicious.
