    Mm. Tapas!

    In Spain, tapas are a really popular appetizer that you can get pretty much anywhere- including bars.  One of the tapas that I really enjoyed was the olives in oil.  It was basically olives that had been marinated in flavored olive oil.  They were so fresh and so...

    My Comfort Food

    Even since my parents made me try an olive a few years ago, I've been hooked. I like black ones, but the green olives are my personal comfort food.  Doesn't matter if I'm bored, sad, angry-I just grab a jar of olives, put about ten into a small bowl and I'm content. I...

    I Love Olives

    Even though olives have a highfat content of 15 to 35 percent, they are an excellent source of oleic acid (an omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acid). Since olives contain mixed tocopherols, they are also a good source of vitamin E.  Olives and their oil contain many unique phenolic...

    ....and Olive Oil

    Have you ever tried  toasted bread, rubbed with a bit of garlic and olive oil? It is  heavenly. Beats butter anytime. I also use olives in a lot of my recipes. I like mediterranean cooking and you find olives and olive oil in virtually all of them. Yummy !!
