Rosemary-Garlic Cream Cheese Spread

Years ago, I bought a little rosemary plant during the holiday season. It was pruned to look like a miniature Christmas tree. Not only was it a cute little plant, it was so nice to have the scent of fresh rosemary in the house! When spring came, I planted it in a sunny spot by the front porch. It grew from a small little plant into a huge, huge bush. It even started getting pretty deep purple blossoms on it—I didn’t know rosemary blooms, so that was a nice bonus!

I learned that rosemary helps keeps bugs away, so it was great to have it right next to the front porch. The bush stayed green all year long; it would stop growing in the winter months and then it would flourish with new growth in the spring. The nicest thing about having the bush was that I could pick fresh rosemary for cooking and baking anytime I needed it, year-round.

So I guess Deviled Eggs are something we can enjoy all year round, right?
