I am a fan of both Philadelphia and of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, but since this blog is about travel I don’t usually write about cream cheese. But when PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese asked me to help get the word out about a travel contest then count me in. (I will tell you one of my favorite easy cream cheese recipes later but first let’s talk about travel).
PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese created an online community 2 years ago called the Real Women of Philadelphia as a “place for women to share recipes, create friendships”. To celebrate their third year they are hoping to help some women achieve their dreams, and they are starting the year by helping some women achieve their travel dreams. If you guessed they were giving away a dream vacation you would be close, they are giving away 3 dream vacations.
- Delicious Dream Trip to France - June 4 – June 10, 2012
- Delicious Dream Trip to Italy – June 11 to June 17, 2012
- Delicious Dream Trip to Greece - June 18 to June 24, 2012
The winner and a guest will be flown to the destination country from their nearest airport and will be given airport transportation and hotel accommodations (France: 8 days/7 nights + one travel day, or Italy: 10 days/9 nights or Greece: 8 days/7 nights). The winner will also be given $3,200 in spending money (that they are not required to share with their guest). The winner will also receive an 8GB MP3 player with video feature to document his/her travels so we will want to see video when you get back.
You can enter the contest Delicious Dream Trips.
To enter you will need to submit your original recipe, inspired by the particular country of the week, using PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, Cooking Creme or Indulgence, with a video. The get your friends to vote for your delicious recipe.
My favorite easy PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese recipe is for chile dip (Cut one package of cream cheese into cubes and combine with two cans of chile, I use one hot and one mild. Microwave the mixture for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until the mixture is smooth. Serve with tortilla chips.) but for this contest a French, Greek or Italian recipe is called for.
Chris’s Greek Cream Cheese dip:
Mix equal parts PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and humus. Heat in the microwave for 20 seconds, stir and repeat until mixture is smooth. Combine with feta cheese using half the amount of feta cheese as cream cheese. Return to microwave for 20 seconds, stir, repeat until mixture is again smooth. Serve while still warm with pita chips.
By the way, I am told that it is OK that I a member of the Women of Philadelphia even though I am a man, so no need to report me to the local constabulary.
What’s your recipe? What will you do on your dream vacation?
To sweeten the deal the best comment on this blog post will win a “Cooking with Pheeling” cookbook and gratuity coupons for PHILADELPHIA products.
