With the temperatures sinking into the single digits, everyone is trying to stay warm and if you are like me, you’ve been making soups, stews and the slow cooker has become your best friend. When is time to serve a great dish of comfort food, I always have a platter of crusty bread and flavored olive oil on the table. Making your own flavored oil is easy, inexpensive and a great way to add flavor to your meal. The biggest bonus is that you can add whatever flavors your family likes! Here’s my go to recipe…

I've always wanted to make my own flavored oils and have no idea why I've not carved out time to do so. And yay for soup season. That taco soup will be in my crockpot soon.
Thanks Lea Ann! I am glad you stopped by and am happy I've given you a little inspiration. Please let me know what you think!
