Calling all bloggers!

Pompeian a brand long respected in the olive oil business, wants everyone to reconsider their oil choices.  With Pompeian’s Time to Change Your Oil campaign the company is promoting a lesser known, but very healthy option- grapeseed oil.

I must confess I have not used this tasty alternative.  But based on the recipes available from Pompeian, I am intrigued.  For instance check out this yummy recipe for Smoky Fried Chickpeas

Or also how about this Beef-Stir Fry option?  My husband would love this recipe.

  6. ~ I love the idea about time to change your oil. Who knew? When it comes to posting a recipe, I’m not good at that. These two recipes look great though. Good Luck to everyone else. ~

    I haven’t tried Grapeseed Oil but am hearing good things about it. Of course,I love olive oil. I like to make a basic pasta recipre–olive oil, onion, garlic, tomato, tons of veggies, maybe meat if I have some, dash of red pepper, and Parmesan, I think the grapeseed oil would be nice, too.

  8. I love using olive oil in just about everything. I didn’t know about grape seed oil, learn something new every day.

  9. Nikki Strong says

    I have switched to using Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil, trying to make a healthier choice.

    I have heard great things about grapeseed oil! I’m so glad it’s easier to find now. 🙂

  18. I haven’t heard about grapeseed oil until recently and now I’m see it more and more in recipes. I always thought that EEVO was a healthier option, now there’s something healthier! I’m going to have to pick some up and give it a try.

  19. cassandra says

    i have never even heard of this before! The food looks amazing though 🙂 so maybe i will give it a try

  20. carol lewis says

    My SIL uses grapeseed oil to make chocolate cake. My next cake I will have to use this.

  21. I have never tried grapeseed oil in food preparation, although I have used hair products that contain it. Everyone always talks about how healthy olive oil is and I never questioned if there was another oil I should be checking out. I downloaded the $1.00 off coupon on their FB page so I can try it out. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Michelle says

    I’ve never used grapeseed oil but have actually heard pretty good things about it.

  24. Teresa salerno says

    Grape seed oil is great for salads too and has a very high cooking temperature

  25. Sounds like something worth trying.

  26. Barbara Stenby says
