Cream Cheese and Olive DipThe big game is tomorrow and you may be looking for a great dip to serve at your party. Well look no further.  If you’re an olive fan, you will love this dip!  And for a little kick, the cayenne pepper gives it some heat.  This is a super easy recipe to make… all you have to do is chop up olives and mix everything together.  In my playbook that is a game day winning recipe!  If I am hosting a party, I love making recipes like this where you mix everything together ahead of time and then all you have to do is get it out of the refrigerator right before the guests arrive.  Then just throw some crackers on a platter to finish off the presentation. So let’s get started so we are ready for the big game.
