On my other blog, Restless Chipotle, I use a lot of recipes from my antique and vintage cookbook collection. I find that those old recipes are usually easy to make with common ingredients. So many of them are pure comfort food!

People used to eat a very different diet that we do now. It was lower in carbs and higher in fats and proteins plus there wasn’t nearly as much processed food. It wasn’t until the 1980s that we were assured that low fat and high carb was the way to fight heart disease.

So these old cookbooks are full of recipes that use bacon, heavy cream, and butter. There are countless recipes for fresh vegetables and unique dips and spreads like this pecan olive spread.

I never would have thought of mixing up pecans and olives but it works! The briny olives cut through the richness of the cream cheese and pecans and balance it all beautifully.

You can use this as a spread for celery or low carb crackers, add a touch more cream and use it as a dip, or chill it and roll balls of the chilled mixture in parsley for a yummy fat bomb.

A food processor helps with so many kitchen chores but when I am making low carb recipes I don’t need a big food processor. I love this smaller food processor by KitchenAid — and it’s in my signature color! Red!
