Most of the butter-based recipes will work just as well with margarine, as long as it’s not a reduced-fat or fat-free spread.

<p>This is the quick-and-easy spread that transforms ordinary hot, fresh bread into a divine treat. It’s my interpretation of a blend served at a local franchise, hence the name. I prefer my favorite broadleaf garlic chives in this recipe, but any chive, or even minced shallots, are tasty, too.</p>
<p>• 2 ounces cream cheese, softened<br />
• 2 tablespoons butter, softened<br />
• 1 teaspoon dry white wine or lemon juice<br />
• 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper<br />
• 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder<br />
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives<br />
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley</p>
<p>1. In a small ceramic or glass mixing bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter. Stir in wine or lemon juice. Add black pepper and cumin; stir until thoroughly combined. Fold in chives and parsley.</p>
<p>2. Refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 2 weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving.</p>
