Grapeseed oil. Very mild and excellent for salad dressing.

I agree. We use it to make seared tuna and love it.

My husband and I use coconut oil to cook just about everything. (He even likes to spread it on whole grain toast!) Most people think it is a bad fat, but it's really healthy, and it also adds good flavor to food. So, keep some in your kitchen and your bath - because it's great for your skin, too! emoticon

I'm just saying... Kelley

EEVO, Canola Oil, Grapeseed Oil are my picks.


I use extra virgin olive oil (EEVO) when ever I can. Here's a link that explains some of the benefits of olive oil.

Sometimes I need to use an oil that doesn't have the flavor and aroma of olive oil. In those instances, I use canola oil. Here's a link with more info about canola oil.

Grapeseed oil is also an excellent cooking oil...Grapseed Oil: Lowers cholesterol
Grapeseed oil is believed to reduce bad cholesterol in the arteries. It has a very light taste and can be used just as you use olive oil in cooking. In some cases, grapeseed oil if preferable to olive oil because it has an even higher smoke point (can withstand hotter temperatures).

I use Smart Balance oil, which is a blend of a few oils. It has Omega-3 fatty acids, which most people don't get enough of.

Extra virgin olive oil cold pressed. I usually buy Star brand. To bake or saute foods sometimes I use extra virgin light olive oil, it has a lighter taste.

I use a product that is a blend of Olive Oil and Canola. Don't think it's any healthier than either one of its components, but I get the good taste of Olive Oil at a cheaper price.

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans??
