I have followed The Real Women of Philadelphia since their debut last year and now they are back with season 2 with another chance to win $25,000 for your best Philadelphia Cream Cheese recipes! Paula Deen is the perfect host and I just love seeing her smiling face when I pop into see what new recipes have been posted.

I followed season 1 faithfully because my good friend Mandy Heaston of Gourmet Mom on the Go, was a finalist and actually won her category. It was so exciting to watch the live broadcast last year of all the winning recipes. Seeing pictures of her and Paula Deen is such a treat. Mandy’s recipe for Asparagus and Parmesan Cream Pastries looks incredible, and she’s even got a video, take a peek!

To get your creativity going, here’s an incredibly simple yet tasty side dish I’ve created that my entire family goes bonkers for. Broccoli, bacon, roasted red peppers and cream cheese baked to perfection. Hope you enjoy!

    1. Hi Becky,
      I found those little red dishes at Cost Plus World Market for really cheap. I know Sur La Table sells them too, but for quite a bit more 🙂
