Blue Ribbon Recipe

A cheese log is a delicious appetizer to snack on or to serve at a holiday party. Crushed red pepper plus garlic and onion powder add zing, but it's not too spicy. Made with only five ingredients, the toughest part of making this cheese log is waiting for it to chill in the fridge. Serve with crackers or veggies such as carrots and celery.
