I'm fully embracing the hustle and bustle here in the studio today, as this will likely be my last full day here before the festivities begin. I wanted to share a simple, easy recipe for an olive tapenade that will knock the socks off any party-goer or visiting relative that you may be entertaining over the next week. It's super simple and oh so delish.
I use a mini food processor and fill it with green olives and about 3 tablespoons of cream cheese and about 3-4 cloves of garlic. You can add more or less depending on your garlic tolerance. I prefer heavy garlic, especially this time of year as garlic is an immunity booster and we could all use the help to fend off the winter colds going around. Add a little drizzle of olive oil just to get the blend on, and pulse it up. Since my mini processor is just that, mini, I usually make 2 little batches and combine them. Serve it with toasted crustinis and voila! That's it. It is amazingly GOOD. Addictive.
I hope your week is Merry and Bright. Remember to breathe through it all and let gratitude fill your heart!
