Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil

 
Filippo Berio® Extra Virgin Olive Oil Review
 
I received my BzzAgent Campaign for FREE
#imabzzagent 
 
I was very excited to get this Campaign and try this Olive Oil out and make a few things with it in my spare time & also try using it in something not associated to cooking (we will get to that later).
 
WHAT WAS IN MY CAMPAIGN BOX
????????????????????
 

 (1) Bubble Wrap......Gosh I feel like a kid every time I get this stuff Haha!
(2) Full size bottle of Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
(3) Substitution Chart/Magnet showing how easy it is to use Olive Oil Vrs Butter, Margarine & other cooking oils
(4) Packet of coupons to share with Family & Friends $1.00 Off
 
 
 
LET'S GET COOKING!!!!!!!
 
I boiled up some plain old Publix Brand spaghetti noodles, once cooked, I drizzled the Filippo Berio EVOO over them & added a little salt & pepper for added flavor/taste. I did try them just like this and they were different from just having butter on them with parmesan cheese like I usually do. Since the whole process of this test is trying to use EVOO in place of butter, I did that & I have to say that I did actually think the flavor was very different but in a good way & is something I can get use to over time.
 
After making the noodles and trying them without anything, I drizzled some of the Filippo Berio EVOO in a pan, tossed in some sausage, Green & Red Peppers, Zucchini, carrots, Garlic (tubed found in fresh produce isle at Publix), Tomatoes & little salt & pepper for flavor/taste.
I put this combination on the bottom of my plate & added the noodles with some Garlic Bread & called it a Delicious Dinner.

I use this about 1 time a week and I can see such a big difference in how the wood looks now compared to other leading brand wood polishers I have used & best of all, it is all natural & adds a fresh lemony scent to my home.
 
Lubricate those squeaky door hinges with just a little drizzle of Filippo Berio  EVOO-- Who needs WD40 right?
 
Put a little Filippo Berio  EVOO in a spray bottle & spritz that frizzy hair while at the same time, you are adding moisture to your hair and saving $$$'s on beauty products that rarely do what they are suppose to do anyways.
