Essential Cooking Oils Everyone Should Have in Their Kitchen

Essential Cooking Oils Everyone Should Have in Their Kitchen

Knowing what cooking oils to have in your kitchen to use for cooking can be a little tough, and the variety of options out there don’t help with that toughness in the slightest. Each oil has different benefits with different ways that they should be used, but hopefully, by the end of this there will be a little confusion and a lot of knowledge on the subject. What are the cooking oils you should have in your kitchen? Olive Oil A healthy and popular cooking oil option out there is olive oil, which is full of predominately heart-friendly monounsaturated fat. It has been shown to reduce the risk of multiple diseases and health concerns, including cancer, strokes, and even depression. Olive oil has a bold and tasty flavor, as well as a low burning point. However, the taste is said to be widely different if you are comparing a better olive oil to a less quality one. The better oil will have more flavor and would be a better option for a vinaigrette, while if you are using it for cooking the quality doesn’t matter as much. Many recommend using olive oil for frying, but it is also good to use in vinaigrettes and for marinating. It can also be used as a hair conditioner, an acne eraser, and as a substitute for shaving cream.   Peanut Oil Straight from peanuts, peanut oil is an oil with relatively high monounsaturated fats that make it a heart healthy option. It is pale in color yet has a powerful nutty flavor, and is popularly used in Asian cuisine. It is great for...

7 Reasons Why You Should Clean Out Your Fridge

You open your fridge to look for a midnight snack when BAM! You’re smacked in the face with a glorious smell. The kind of smell that causes you to regurgitate a little then shut the door immediately. You’re not quite sure what exactly died in there, but you know something is definitely not OK. As you do a detailed scan, you also notice that sticky spill that’s been there for… how long now? So, when was the last time you actually did a deep clean of your refrigerator? We suggest cleaning out your fridge at least twice a month to avoid bacteria to spread and a possible E. Coli outbreak in your home (gross!). Your fridge is one of the most used appliances in your entire home so a little extra TLC may have to go its way.
