If you're like me, you have probably read all the health benefits of olive oil and by now you have probably started turning to it in your recipes in place of some of your other oils.  I use it for almost everything - especially homemade salad dressings.  

Lately, I have been noticing grapeseed oil more prominently displayeed in my grocery store and I have been thinking about trying it out.  I have recently learned that grapeseed oil has similar benefits to olive oil but it is also more versatile in cooking because it has a lighter taste and a higher smoke point.

  1. Well, I've already paid for my Blogher trip, hopefully I'll see you there?!

    I do love Grapeseed Oil and love working with it in my kitchen, I'll have to give this brand a try.

  2. I've seen grapeseed oil around a lot also and definitely wondered about it. Have to pick up a bottle!

    These fried chickpeas sound delicious! The perfect finger food.
