My food processor - something I never saw in person until I registered for one.  Once I started using it, I don't know how I ever went without one!  For my first blog post, I'm going to share one of the simplest recipes I have; tapenade.  This recipe came from our good friend Yvonne.  She would always have this out when we came over.  We would go to her home and I would essentially plant myself in front of the dish and constantly take spoonfuls of this yummy app.  When she sent me the recipe I had no idea something that delicious was so easy to make!

***Key Note - Make sure that there are no pits in the olives.  Even ones that say they are pitted may have the stray pit in there.  The food processor won't be happy when it hits that pit!  We found at least 4 pits in our "pitted" olives.


Three 8-ounce jars of kalamata olives (without pits)
3/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
2 or 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- Mix it all in a food processor!



  1. I can't stand olives but I have to tell you that if I have warm crusty piece of bread and there is a really good tapenade near by... I will do some damage. Looking forward to seeing more from your blog!

  2. I never realized how often I was going to use my food processor until I purchased one. This looks great and I do have some sundried tomatoes to use up...
