The best way to showcase a delicious olive oil? Make it the star of the dish. Take this one pan spaghetti recipe for example. It's the essence of Italian cooking - fresh, simple and freakin' yummy.
When it comes to choosing the best olive oil, you may find that it's harder than you expected. How do you know it's fresh? How do you know where it came from? What makes it different from any other olive oil you can get at the grocery store? (If you're not asking these questions, you definitely should be...)
We'd like to help answer those questions by introducing you to our "best" oil, our Bell'Olio Nuovo (beautiful new oil).
It's nice to indulge sometimes. Especially when what you indulge in has sweet consequences. What guilt-free pleasure am I referring to, you ask? Chocolate.
What if I told you that chocolate is actually good for you? And that you should eat it everyday? But before you dive head first into that Matilda Chocolate Cake, hear me out on what type you should eat, how much and what effects it has on your body. Dark chocolate specifically, has some fantastic benefits that I was quite excited to find out about.

What's one thing we're tired of hearing? It's unsafe to cook with olive oil. It isn’t stable and oxidizes when heated, causing harm to the body. While this is true for other oils like canola and vegetable oil, I’m here to put these myths about olive oil to rest.
Did you know the largest and fastest growing organ in our body is our skin? And that what we put on our body (aka our skin) is just as important as what we put IN our body? All of those overly-fragrant lotions and moisturizers with lists of ingredients that you cant pronounce... shocker: THEY AREN'T GOOD FOR YOU!
Enter: Olive Oil.

If your weary of fat, that doesn't surprise me. Most people have been trained to choose low-fat foods over high-fat foods for decades now. It's been pinned as a dietary enemy without question.
The truth is, our bodies need dietary fat to survive. The trick is choosing the right kind of fat - the "healthy fat". This type of fat is anti-inflammatory, speeds up metabolism, protects against heart disease, and is full of healthy nutrients.
Once you taste this, you'll go from buying store bought vinaigrettes to making tastier, healthier dressings at home!

Brace yourself for a sweet, sweet post.
Why? We're giving you our roundup of our favorite holiday cookie recipes to make this time of year. Something about the holiday season makes it totally acceptable to eat delicious, colorful, chewy cookies all month long...or is that just me?
Who loves a good antipasto board? The flawlessly rolled prosciutto, the perfect wedge of cheese, the way every tiny bite of food harmoniously works together - it's a work of art, really.
I frequently order these at restaurants, but when it comes to recreating this food masterpiece at home, I get a bit discouraged.
