Copy Cat Carrabbas Bread Dip

Let me just start by saying this is a PERFECT Thanksgiving dinner appetizer. Have you ever been to Carrabbas? It is a delightful place. It can be a bit scary calorie-wise, BUT it is delicious nonetheless. I always get the minestrone soup there, and I think it is so dang tasty, and very low cal. Well, if you have been to Carrabbas, you may also recall the dipping herbs and olive oil that they bring out while you wait. That stuff is like crack. It is so amazingly good that it is dangerous. Mainly due to the large amounts of white bread consumed right along with it. Good news...I have the recipe for it, and you can serve it with some whole wheat or whole grain bread and it turns into a delicious and healthy appetizer.

Warning: You will eat all of it, and it WILL go quickly. I've never made it and had leftovers. Usually people are scraping the dipping plate for remainders.

Copy-Cat Carrabbas herb bread dip

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp minced fresh garlic (I just use the refrigerated kind that comes in the jar)
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 - 1/2 cup of olive oil

Combine seasonings in a food processor. (This does not include olive oil.)
Pulse until combined.
Place a spoonful on a small plate and drizzle olive oil over the top.
I actually served this on Sunday along side my homemade hummus and it was a tasty hit! I frequently make this with my easiest whole wheat bread and the combo of fresh bread right out of the oven with the fresh herbs and olive oil is so so so good. You'll love it.

Here's a lil' taste of my Christmas Decor :)

November 21st: Today I am grateful for guiding words of inspiration. I have been listening to talks from HERE, and I always feel inspired after I do. 
One year ago today...This is funny right?  

Have you busted out your Christmas decorations yet? I know I'm a bit premature, but I am leaving for AZ for the weekend, and I know I'll be glad they are up when I return! Don't forget to plan something active for your Thanksgiving Day plans!

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
