Roasted red peppers and black olives are two items that I always keep stocked in my pantry. They both are wonderful additions to meals like pasta or sandwiches. I especially love roasted red pepper in hummus or other dips.
I actually made this Red Pepper and Black Olive Tapenade for a sandwich recipe, but it works well as a dip too. If you do use it as a dip, you may want to chop the red pepper and olives smaller than I did in the photos.
I was going to write a separate post for this, but I decided to include it here. I want to welcome you to the new and improved Create Mindfully!
I have spent the last two weeks tweaking my site. You may have noticed that my site was down for several days. That was because the new theme that I chose broke my site. I literally spent hours and hours on the phone with technicians to see how we could fix it.
After optimizing images, getting rid of unnecessary files, and deactivating plugins, it turned out that the theme still ran too many processes. So I bought a better quality theme and am a happy camper once again.
As much of a pain in the you know what that the experience was, I learned a ton. I now have a better running site. Not to mention, I am really happy with the theme that I chose. It has all of the features that I was looking for.
