My sister went to Italy and all she got me was...

this really yummy olive oil (and some really great purses too)!!! Thanks sis! This is really delicious tasting stuff. For information on what makes an olive oil good or really good click here!

Last night we made pizza which we do at least once a week. I use my bread machine (which broke when it fell off of my counter Sunday morning???!!! I had to buy some store bought pre-made dough.) to make a really nice whole wheat dough.

Anyway, I haven't really had an opportunity to use the new olive oil but we used it on the pizza last night and what a treat. I never realized how big an impact really good olive oil will make. I plan to use is in a spinach recipe that I am trying. Should turn out really good!

See the fancy bottle?

Thanks a million I have to go next summer don't I???

On a side note one of our fellow food blogger's is having an issue with a large food magazine...check out her post and add your 2 cents! . Crazy stuff!!!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

I love the bottle...gimme one...just like the Chianti bottles of yore.

I don't like ATK, however.

Brittany said...

I wanted to OOOO and AWWW over your olive oil, but now I am too fired up about the ATK blogger witch hunt!

Its amazing what a difference a good olive oil can make. I wish I could find it all the time--I have a little bit as well and treat it like a scarce resource, when really, I'd love to just use it on everything.

And to hell with ATK. Definitely puffing a lot of hot air.

Very nice olive oil! I am obsessed with olive oil - I have at least 4 different kinds at any one time.

ATK is going down!

Yum! I'm jealous. I love cooking with olive oil, and like The Leftover Queen, I have at LEAST 4 different kinds at one time. I just *can't* stop buying them!

Hey Peter-ATK/CI/CC all suck real bad. Good olive oil though is real good!

Hey Brittany-that whole issue was just bad!

Hi Mike-I am going to use it and love it...when it's gone I'll just have to figure out how to get more! ATK sucks!

Hey Jenn-i have about 3 different ones but this one is by far the best! ATK is going down!

Hey rockstar-ahhhh...we all have our little addictions!!!

How sweet of you to link to me and my post. Thanks!! I am overwhelmed by all the response and postings. Wow!

By the by, I just recently started cooking with much better olive oil. It so makes a difference, as you know. What a great gift from your sister.
