Homemade Chipotle Oil

Rating: 4.45 stars
There's nothing wrong with giving homemade holiday gifts, just as long as they're something somebody would actually want and use. Thanks to things like fruitcakes so dense they have their own gravitational fields, making edible gifts has gotten a bad name, but that's not an issue with this chipotle oil, especially if that certain someone on your gift list likes the spicy stuff!

Waldorf Salad with Walnut Oil Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.67 stars
A wonderful light Waldorf Salad with no mayo. The flavors of the apples, walnuts and raisins are so clean and fresh. It never fails to please.

Sesame Seed Oil Hummus

Rating: 4.88 stars
Delicious hummus recipe that does not use tahini. Mashing the chickpeas is optional, but I think it makes it blend easier.

Chef John's Bagna Cauda

Rating: 4.38 stars
If there were ever a recipe to tweak to your own tastes, it's this one. You can adjust the amounts of garlic and anchovy, as well as the proportion of olive oil to butter. You can also control how long you cook the mixture before it's presented. I hear from my friends in Northern Italy that they use twice as much anchovy and garlic as I did. Serve in a small chafing dish or fondue pot with crusty bread, roasted carrots, blanched asparagus, endive, red peppers, and/or roasted potatoes.

Bread Dipping Oil

A delicious oil mixture to dip chunks of Italian or French bread into.

Ladolemono - Lemon Oil Sauce for Fish or Chicken

Rating: 4.46 stars
This is a Greek sauce that is great for grilled or baked chicken or fish (especially salmon). It is simple to make, and is usually served with the meal so that everyone can put as much ladolemono on their fish or chicken as they want.

Green Beans With Orange Olive Oil

Rating: 4.22 stars
This is a side dish of fresh green beans tossed with orange-infused olive oil. It's my favorite way to make green beans. I normally serve it with Italian food, it's tasty and refreshing!

Olive Oil-Poached Tuna

Rating: 4.57 stars
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.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Rating: 4.54 stars
A quick and easy dish to prepare, this chicken stir-fry is packed with veggies. Try adding bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, snap peas, or any of your favorite vegetables. Serve it with white or brown rice, or noodles.

Oven-Baked Potato Slices

Rating: 4.44 stars
I created this recipe by accident. After already starting dinner one night I realized I didn't have enough potatoes on hand to make mashed, so I improvised and came up with these baked potato slices. It's quick and easy and they are delicious. Just line your cookie sheet with nonstick foil and clean up is a snap! Enjoy!

Air Fryer Potato Wedges

Rating: 4.85 stars
Perfectly crisp and seasoned potato wedges straight out of your air fryer. It doesn't get any easier than this!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

A quick fried rice like you get at your favorite Chinese restaurant. A couple of eggs, baby carrots, peas and soy sauce is all you need.

Ahi Poke Basic

This is a standard raw tuna (poke) salad served in most Hawaiian homes. Although unconventional, it is sure to please the more adventurous seafood lovers. Be sure to use fresh tuna for the very best flavor, although fresh frozen tuna will produce acceptable results.
