Wordle Recipes - Chives

I was playing around on the internet and found this site that takes your words or articles and turns them into a graphic.  This is a set of my recipes visually presented.  Is this not fun?

Wordle: Cooking with herbs

The website is:   Here are the recipes I wordled:

Fines Herbes 

1 Tbls. chopped fresh chives
1 Tbls. chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbls. chopped fresh tarragon
1 Tbls. chopped fresh chervil

 Chop herbs finely and combine.  Add to cooked dishes toward the end of cooking.  Great with fish, eggs and salads.

Fines Herbes Spread

Soften 1 8-oz. package cream cheese.  Add 1 tsp. each of fresh chopped chives, parsley, tarragon and chervil.  Place in serving dish or form into a ball.  Refrigerate for several hours or overnight for flavors to meld.  Serve with your favorite crackers.  You can roll the cream cheese blend into a ball or a log and wrap in plastic wrap to firm before serving.

Chive Butter

10 long mature tender chive leaves
1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temp.

Soften the butter.  Place in blender container with the chive leaves.  Blend until all the chive pieces disappear.  The butter will take on a beautiful green color and taste wonderful.  Pour the mixture into a container and chill.  Use as a dip for crackers or a spread for your favorite bread. For a perfect appetizer, slice French bread the long way, spread with the butter and broil for a few minutes.
