Olive Oil Cranberry Bundt Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
My favorite Bundt cake. Light and moist, absolutely delicious! Also good with blueberries. If using blueberries, omit cinnamon and cloves.

Olive Oil-Poached Tuna

Rating: 5 stars 12
You're perfectly happy eating regular canned tuna until the day you taste the imported, olive oil-packed tuna and realize exactly what you've been missing. You tell people that there's nothing better, but that's not entirely true. There's this. By gently poaching fresh ahi tuna in olive oil, you can create a tuna fish of exceptional quality. The taste and texture are amazing, and you can adapt this in many ways. Besides switching up herbs and seasonings, you can cook the fish to a wide range of doneness.

Easy Olive Oil, Tomato, and Basil Pasta

This is a great pasta that can be eaten at room temperature or as a cold salad. Instant, sophisticated meal or side dish! And colorful, too. Any type of twisty or unusually shaped pasta works well.

Air Fryer Roasted Garlic

Rating: 5 stars 3
Roasted garlic adds so much flavor to all dishes. Now it's super easy to make in an air fryer. Once roasted, the cloves easily pop out of their paper casings and are soft as butter. Try spreading on crusty bread or crackers, or use for garlic toast.
