Herbed Cheese Spread

So I go from posting about homemade crackers to making a cheese spread made with store-bought cream cheese.  From Martha to Sandra Lee in a day, what a downgrade.  But if you make this, I promise you wont be thinking Sandra at all, you will be just lost in creamy, cheesy, garlic goodness and forget about the cream cheese base.
