California Olive Ranch = Yum



Tuesday I posted about one of my new favorite Olive Oils from California Olive Ranch. I discovered it through my friend, Midnight Macaroons. California Olive Ranch was recently rated the“#1 California-grown extra virgin olive oil” by Cooks Illustrated.

Per Midnight Macaroons suggestion, I purchased the Arbosana Olive Oil. “It has fruitiness, nutty tones, and medium pungency.” For my weight watchers friends, it’s 4 points per serving… not bad for something delicious and new!



For the last 2 years, I’ve traveled for work 80% of the year. Since I’ve moved to San Antonio, I’ve been home more than usual. I’ve had a hard time deciding what to buy at the grocery store and what to prepare at home. Y’all, I used to be good at this…

I’ve been using Arbosana Olive Oil for bread dipping and I’ve sprinkled it on salads. California Olive Ranch has a great website with recipe ideas. I can’t wait to try a few of their recipes. It’s funny how traveling for 2 years makes you forget what to eat when you’re at home. What happened to me?

California Olive Ranch has started taking pre-orders with free shipping through September 4 of their coveted, Olio Nuovo, which is produced in limited supply. Shipping begins in November.



Guess what! California Olive Ranch is offering all Peeptoe Pumps and Pearls readers’ FREE shipping through September 30, 2009! You have to try this Olive Oil, especially if you're a "foodie" or you love to cook.

When you’re checking out, just enter “MYPEEPS” in the coupon code section. This Olive Oil is the perfect addition to your kitchen, a GREAT housewarming gift, Christmas gift, or hostess’s gift.

Yay! You must have received an e-mail from Kirsten too! I'm going to post the coupon on my blog also. I'm planning on purchasing bottles for Christmas gifts this year. They would be sooo cute with a red ribbon.

PS ~ Let me know if you try any of those yummy recipes on the California Olive Ranch site!!!

I've never heard of this before and might have to try it. I love cooking with olive oil and using it on salad with vinegar. Thanks for posting!

Yay!!!...I just order four bottles...I could decided, they all sounded good!! The limited edition blend will be fun to receive just before the holidays, too!! I probably won't keep them all to myself though...they'll make great gifts. Thanks for the coupon!!!

Hugs,
Tanya

This is funny. I got the same e-mail from Kristen as well. She must love our blogs! I sure do too!

Kirsten said...

Hi y'all. Yes, I do love your blogs! Great cooking ideas, fun inspirational stories, real life ideas ... What's not to like? Keeps me smiling - Don't change a thing!

TanyaLea said...

HEE-HEE-HEE!! :) ...I'm tickled, as I just placed another order (it's been about a year since my last order, when I purchased one of everything...and LOVED them all!) ...so I hunted for your ol'post and the coupon code, and IT STILL WORKS a whole year later!! ;) Just thought you might wanna know, incase you need to place another order yourself!

I love their olive oil... it has turned me into an EVOO snob!! Seriously, this is the best I have yet to taste, even next to more expensive ones. I'm completely out, so it was time to re-stock for the holidays and upcoming baby shower. So glad you introduced us to it. Thanks Jill!! :)
