With 2017 mere weeks away I have been thinking what do I want to accomplish in that year? We all make New Year’s resolutions. Well, I decided last year I am not making New Year’s resolutions. I am going to make New Year’s wishes instead.
To me, resolutions are like promises you make to yourself. So when you break those resolutions, you hard on yourself. With them renamed as wishes, they are like ok I hope I do these. It seems I do accomplish them better.
What plans do I have, well the usual, weight loss, healthier me, financial stuff. Things like that that most people want for the new year. In 2017 I want also take more risks. Put me out there more and do new challenges. Basically, do things that will make me happy.
One will be moving towards the end of Summer out of Ohio. That change I am really looking forward too.I have said many times on here how I simply do not fit in Cleveland. I am a Pittsburgh girl and that is where I belong. The other state I will consider is Florida. You never know I could meet Mr. Right and end up in Nebraska. I definitely know I won’t be in Cleveland this time next year.
Kosterina Olive Oil
A friend of mine on Facebook introduced me to Kosterina Olive Oil. I love olive oil. I also love anything Greek. In fact, sometimes I think I was Greek in a past life. A little tidbit you didn’t know about me.
Anyway, Kosterina Olive oil is the best tasting olive oil I have tasted. Here is something from the website that explains why this olive oil is so good:
Kosterina olive oil is of the “Koroneiki” variety, which means the olive trees and seeds originated in Koroni, Greece, the hometown of Katerina’s family. Our olive oil is cold pressed from early harvest olives, which means the olives are collected when green and raw. The higher chlorophyll content in unripe olives makes the oil greener and richer in healthy polyphenols. Early harvest oil is called “agourelio” in Greek.
Unfortunately many oils that you’ll find in your local supermarkets are marketed as extra virgin but are in fact very often blends of premium oil with lower quality oil. With Kosterina, we guarantee you are getting nothing but 100% early harvest organic extra virgin oil.
I loved the bottle and knew I had to create something so special with the Kosterina Olive Oil. I have seen other food blogger so olive oil cakes and loaves of bread. That was what I wanted to do.
Rosemary Cherry Olive Oil Bread
I found a rosemary olive oil bread recipe in an old copy of Real Simple Magazine. It was intriguing the recipe. However, I knew I could improve upon it. I had dried cherries left over from another recipe I had done. Cherries and rosemary would pair well together. Plus this recipe also has walnuts in it. I knew this would work so well.
