Recipe of the Month

Appetizers - Olive Pepper Pinwheels

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1/3 cup each finely chopped sweet red, green, and
  • yellow peppers
  • 1 (2¼ ounce) can chopped ripe olives, drained

Cream Cheese in June

June is National Dairy Month, and a great way to mark the occasion is with a classic cream cheese dish. Share with Cooperator readers your favorite recipe using this versatile dairy product. Send us your favorite cream cheese recipes—cakes, dips, casseroles, and more. The person submitting the recipe judged best will be named “Cook of the Month” for the June Cooperator and receive $10. Others sending recipes chosen for publication will receive $5, and each winner will also receive a special “What’s Cookin’?” certificate.

Monday, April 29, is the deadline for cream cheese recipes.

Don't forget: Only recipes that include complete, easy-to-follow instructions will be considered for publication. Several recipes are disqualified because they do not contain all the information that we feel we needed to prepare the dishes successfully. Recipes featured in "What's cookin'?" are not independently tested, so we must depend on the accuracy of the cooks sending them. Always use safe food-handling, preperation, and cooking procedures.

Send your entries to: Recipes, Tennessee Cooperator, P.O. Box 3003, LaVergne, TN 37086. You can submit more than one recipe in the same envelope.  You can also e-mail recipes to:

Be sure to include your name, address, telephone number, and the Co-op with which you do business. It's important that your Co-op be included because we want to give it recognition if your recipe is printed. Recipes that appear in the "What's cookin'?" column will also be published on Tennessee Farmers Cooperative's Web site at
