Today we are celebrating the Red Carpet as we all gather around to watch the Oscars.  My family likes snacking when we watch tv.  Normally, Frank makes popcorn but today is not just any Sunday when you sit around watching tv...tonight is Oscar night, so I decided to amp it up a bit by making Roasted Red Pepper Pinwheels.  Or that was the plan anyway but sometimes my plans go awry.

The good thing about Sunday Supper is that it is normally a casual affair eaten with family and close friends so if things go wrong it is not really a tragedy just a minor inconvenience or as in this case....A Happy Accident.


Aren't these the saddest little pinwheels you have ever seen in your life??
But the taste was perfect....So never judge a book by it's cover.

I made my garlic herb cheese and I attempted to spread it onto the roasted red pepper and make pinwheels but they didn't turn as I had hoped.  I don't know if it was because I tried to cut corners and use jarred red peppers or if it was because my idea was off.  Whatever the reason the pinwheels were not as beautiful as I had imagined.



But I popped one into my mouth and it was heavenly.  The herb cheese melted into the roasted red pepper and it was just divine. So I put on my thinking cap and decided to create a new dish.  I threw everything back into the food processor, pulsed it a few times and Voila!!  Roasted Red Pepper and Herb Cheese Spread....Life is good.

Please check out all the other great Red Carpet recipes at the bottom of this post.

3 oz. Neufchatel Cheese

Place all ingredients into a food processor.  Pulse until combined.  Place into a small bowl and serve on crackers or use as a dip for fresh vegetables.  Print Recipe

And since victoriously turned this recipe around I am going to share it at Small Victories Sunday.

    1. Yep, it only took me 50 years of cooking to relax enough not to sweat the small stuff and to learn that it is all small stuff.

  14. So glad you were able to make something delicious anyway! Honestly, I think it sounds better as a spread than it would have as pinwheels. Just me, of course.
