The last two weeks of holiday feel like it was a month, and I mean that in the best way possible. We have seen so many of our dear, dear friends during our wedding and the days before and after that. We have had the most amazing day we could have wished for. The wedding cake actually turned out well (more on that later ;)) and I can’t believe how much effort our friends put into all of their speeches, fun quiz, cards and presents. It feels like we were bathed in love, and to be honest, I am happy to bask in it a little longer.

Talking about friends, they are just the best to have. Not only to have special moments with (although they are pretty unmissable there), but also to share everyday things like a meal. This recipe for olive butter is perfect for that. In our case we were lucky enough to have good friends make it for us πŸ™‚ Enjoy and yes, do make this for the people special to you. πŸ™‚

Olive Butter


  • 100 grams of finely chopped, good quality (juicy) black olives (I used kalamata olives on oil)
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped fresh thyme (or sage)
  • 250 grams of (unsalted) butter, softened by keeping it in room temperature for around an hour
  • 4 pinches of salt (adapt on the saltiness of your olives)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread the butter out in a little long-shaped form on a piece of clingfilm, roll this up and refrigerate until firm.
  2. Slice the bujtter in slices and serve with either potatoes, pasta, steak or freshly baked bread. Enjoy!
