Uses of Olive Oil

Olive oil is increasingly becoming a favorite staple in today’s kitchen. It is the most recommended oil to use in many diets. Available in many different varieties, such as virgin, extra virgin, and pure olive oil, it can be used in more ways than you can imagine. Here are some tips on how you can get the maximum benefits by using it.

Olio Extravergine

Use It In Your Salad Dressing

Almost everyone knows that you can use olive oil in your salad, but do you know which one tastes best? When using olive oil in your salad dressing, you’ll want to use the olio extravergine or extra virgin olive oil. Create an oil and vinegar dressing, or just drizzle olive oil over fresh cut tomatoes and cucumbers. The taste of this oil is bold, yet not acidic. The aroma is strong but pleasant.

It’s Great For Baking

Try using olive oil in place of vegetable oil in your recipes. You’ll see that your cakes will be moist, tasty, and fluffy. Substituting olive oil for butter in a recipe will also lower the fat content. Virgin olive oil is great, but if it is too flavorful, light olive oil can be used instead.

Massage

Olive oil is great for the skin. You can apply virgin olive oil directly and use it to give a relaxing massage. It’s absorbent and provides relief for dry skin.

Facial Scrub

When mixed with a salt, olive oil can be used as a facial scrub. The salt exfoliates, while the oil gives the skin moisture.

Polish Your Furniture

Olive oil is great for your wooden furniture. It nourishes and conditions the wood, plus it gives it an amazing shine. By using a spray bottle, you’ll avoid applying excess. If you do apply too much, just wipe the furniture down with a paper towel.

“Light” Does Not Refer To Calories

Light olive oil does not mean that it has less calories. It is referring to the color and the taste. It is lighter in color and the taste is milder than other olive oils.

There are endless possibilities to what you can do with olive oil. After trying these tips, you’re sure to come up with some great new ideas of your own.

Kitchen Countertop Drawer Ideas

I am thinking of renovating our kitchen in our little place. Included in what I was planning to rebuild is the countertop specifically the drawers. I want to make the kitchen countertop having a minimalist idea — wherein, if the kitchen is not used, nothing can be seen like utensils and all. But it will have a number of drawers where I can keep all my kitchen stuff. Speaking of drawers, since I have to keep inside the drawers and cabinets all my cookwares, the drawers should be built with high quality 60 in drawer slides that could surely cater weighty cookwares.

Moreover, here below is one of the kitchen countertop drawer ideas which I found a good idea to base from for my kitchen which I just lifted from the internet.

Kitchen Countertop Drawer Ideas

In reality, the image above is really hard to build. But at least, this would somehow give me an idea on how my kitchen after rebuilding it would probably look like.

Hopefully, I could achieve an elegant, neat and presentable kitchen countertop just like the image above soon.

Preparing the Christmas Eve Table

I am having hard time now thinking of what to prepare on our table for the Christmas eve. It is because this will be my first Christmas eve that I am the host — I am the man of the house. So as early as now, I am thinking of what to prepare, cook or bake to serve on Christmas eve. Here are some of the foods that I am planning to have:

  • Lechon Belly
  • Macaroni
  • Cake
  • Fish Menu

I guess these are enough for us. What do you think? I actually was asking my hubby about this but what he was talking about was iOs phone and all like iOS music gear help that he was looking for. Hence, our plans for the Christmas eve foods were diverted to techie stuff again.
