Join me in whipping up this flavorful delight that elevates your taste buds and meal prep game.  On a lazy Sunday, craving a bagel with cream cheese, I decided to make my own. Unveil the creamy alchemy: gently heat 2 cups of whole milk to a simmer, add a tablespoon of lime juice or apple cider vinegar, and watch the milk curdle into delicate curds.

Separating Curds from Whey: Stir until curds and whey part ways, then strain the curds through muslin cloth to cool to room temperature.

Enhancing Flavors:  
Blend cooled curds with salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a food processor, filling your kitchen with the aroma of garlic.

Refrigerate and store: Transfer the creamy mixture into a container, seal it, and refrigerate for 2-3 weeks of homemade delight.

This concludes our journey of crafting a frugal delight that’s simple yet flavorful. Remember, embracing a simple frugal life paves the way for the most exquisite pleasures. Happy cooking and savoring!
With love,
Your Frugal Foodie
