... and it has been a while since I posted any recipes, and it is only because Me and Mr. have been trying watch what we eat and anything worth clicking pictures of is never really healthy. It is just how it is. But I was craving a little experiment in the Kitchen, hence I baked and then gave it away! Win-Win! [Yes! I am weird!]

Olive Poppers*
20 queen size pimiento stuffed olives
8 ounces Emmenthaler cheese, shredded
3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
And if you are a non-vegetarian ...
Also, add 4 strips bacon, cooked. 

 1. Preheat over to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drain the olives and wipe dry with paper towels. Set aside. 
2. Combine the Emmenthaler, flour, butter and cayenne pepper (...and bacon) in a food processor. Cover and process until the mixture is well combined, 10-15 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon water. Process until the dough just holds together when pinched between your fingers, about 10 seconds longer. Add 1 more table spoon water if needed, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the dough holds together. 
3. Wrap and enclose each drained olive with about 1 tablespoon dough. Place the coated olives on a prepared baking sheet. Bake until the olive balls are lightly browned, 15-20 minutes. Serve Warm or at room temperature.

  24. I like your fourth and fifth outfits the best mostly because I love anything black and navy and I'm a sucker for a splash of leopard print! You look totally gorgeous in all of the looks though.
    Those olive poppers look delicious. I don't know you could have the will power to give them away! I've had jalapeno poppers a lot but never olive ones. I must try them!!

    P.S. Thanks so much for the nice comments on my blog :) xx

    We name you Fabulous n Stylish home-maker.

  29. i LOVE olives. This is so totally yum!

  30. I love #5 the best so far!

    As for olive poppers - I hate olives. I hate them with a passion. I think, being Serbian, I am supposed to love them, but I can't stand the taste or texture.

    That being said, if I WERE going to eat one, I think poppers would be the way to go!

  31. Do your talents ever end?
    ...I don't think so and I'm glad!

    2, 4, 5... love these looks! Hard to choose a favourite but if I had to it would be 4. No. 5. Hang on. 3. No definitely 4.

    Dammit. Too hard.

  32. OOh, i'd surely pop out of my clothes if I had those poppers!! So yummy. I might actually try this considering Anish loves OLIVES...when..i have no idea! :-p

    By the way, voting is hard you know..there's always TWO i have a hard time comparing with which i like more..
