Maybe it’s because of those extra hours I’m spending in a car on a new long commute, and not just any car, a rental car because my car was rear ended in February and I’m still waiting to get my car back from the shop, or maybe it’s because the whole working mom life balance thing just needs some sweets to make everything easier. No matter the reason, have you guys made cream cheese from scratch, yet? No?
