Alex Guarnaschelli's Genius Tip For Keeping Olive Oil Fresh

Experts say buying olive oil is like buying wine. There are subtle differences in taste that vary depending on its region of origin, and less expensive bottles often lack the character that is detectable in more premium varieties (via Well+Good). Grocery stores often offer olive oils that range substantially in price, from less than $10 to more than $50, and some that even sell in the three digits. According to Real Simple, while you don't have to break the bank, spending a bit more for a good bottle of the extra-virgin stuff can pay off. It does some heavy lifting in the flavor department, whether it's used to elevate simple dishes, finish off soups and salads or brighten up roasted vegetables.

Sen. Kennedy: American people don’t believe Biden's claim that he doesn’t control gas and oil prices

Sen. John Kennedy castigated Biden for his economic and energy failures telling "Hannity" the president has lost the trust of the American people. SEN. JOHN KENNEDY: On inflation here is what the American people see. President Biden gave Americans three $600 stimulus checks. And then, for his next trick, he crashed their 401(k)s and increased their gasoline bills by $800, their food bills by $3,000, and their rent by $2,000 a month. Now, unless you have untreated mental illness, you know that is not a good trade.
