It’s Time to De-Winterize!

IMG_5380-Full

Hello Spring!

With Spring quickly approaching (finally!!) it’s not only time for some Spring cleaning, but also time to “De-Winterize.” How do you do this, you may ask?  Pasolivo’s here to help. Check out our top 5 tips!

  1. Bring Some Color In: Enough with the rich red and Christmas greens, it’s time for color, color, color! Adding accent colors to your house is as easy as putting up some colorful curtains, art, or even tea towels in the kitchen. Check out a couple of our favorite tea towels for a pop of color.

  2. Break Out Some Spring Recipes: With food being such a big part of family and culture, there’s no wonder why some foods relate so iconically to Springtime. Two of our Spring favorites are our Spring Blend Yogurt Chicken Breasts and Citrus Carrot Cake.

  3. Smell Like Spring: The feeling of Spring shouldn’t only be visually pleasing, it should be an all-encompassing, multiple sense-engaging celebration!  One of the most important of those senses… scent! What scents do you associate with Spring? Flowers and freshness?  Try our Lavender & Geranium Body Butter.  Warm, cozy vanilla for those rainy Spring days?  We’ve got you covered with our hand-poured, all-natural Vanilla Soy Candle.46-w4SwQyv7rcq1a-e1550184261500.jpeg….And for some of you that iconic Spring smell might be fresh baked goodies.  Say hello to the mouthwatering scent of Limoncello Poundcake!limoncello_pound_cake_lr-1109_cnv
  4. Celebrate with Some Fruity Drinks: What’s better than celebrating the arrival of Spring than pouring up a few drinks and enjoying them with friends and family?  Two of our favorites are our Olive Oil Cocktail and Strawberry and Sriracha Blended Margarita.shutterstock_606566744_1_strawberrymargarita
  5. Give the Gift of Spring: Help your friends feel the De-Winterization as well by giving them them some classic spring flavors like Pasolivo Lemon Olive Oil and Spring Spice Blend featuring dill, basil, parsley and other refreshing spices.

A Full Day of Romantic Meals

What’s better than a romantic, candlelit meal shared with your loved one?  A full day of delicious Valentine’s meals! Of course, we all understand if you want to kick the kids out later to enjoy that romantic candlelit dinner you’ve been craving!

Breakfast

After a few cups of hot coffee and some good conversation, treat yourself to a simple, easy meal that’s fun for the entire family to participate in.  Sometimes the best little moments are when the whole family gets a little messy and works together to create something delicious.  Pasolivo Granola with a touch of creamy vanilla yogurt and a fresh sprinkle of blueberries is the perfect way to start the special day with a little love.

Lunch

This day should be a combo of laid back AND delicious.  There should be time for preparation of delicious meals, but also time to cuddle up with the family and reminisce about your favorite memories together. Keep it simple with Citrus Pesto Turkey Burgers featuring Pasolivo Citrus Olive Oil, Sparkling Citrus Vinegar, and Kosher Flake Sea Salt.

 Dinner Appetizer

Now, we all want to keep dinnertime as romantic as possible.  Whether that means sending the kids off to Grandma’s or to a friend’s house, this is the time for the three of you (you, your loved one, AND your delicious dinnertime lineup).

Pasolivo Basil Feta Dip is not only easy and incredibly flavorful, but it combines just a few simple ingredients to create something mouthwatering.  Stick the baguette in the oven for a few minutes for the amazing combination of crunchy bread and creamy feta. Drizzle with a little extra Basil Olive Oil for a rich, peppery finish.

Main Course

625x625chicken

Sometimes the most delicious dinners are those that you simply stick in the oven and  allow to slowly fill your nostrils with the comforting (though hunger-inducing) aroma of a traditional home-cooked recipe.  Some of these include a fresh baked loaf of bread, morning blueberry muffins, and of course, roast chicken.  May we present the main course, Pasolivo Italian Chicken.

Side

Traditionally Ratatouille is served as a main dish with a crusty loaf of french bread, but it can also be shared as a complement to the main dish.  The addition of the Herbs de Provence and Tuscan Olive Oil in Pasolivo Ratatouille recipe pair delightfully with the citrus flavors of the Italian Chicken.

Dessert

If there’s anything better than a rich chocolate cake, it’s a rich chocolate cake with an added lemony zing!  This Chocolate Lemon Olive Oil Cake is so delectable and moist that no one would ever know it’s vegan.  The chocolate balances beautifully with the subtly sweet lemon flavor. And with that, the addition of Lemon Olive Oil preserves baked goods LONGER than butter!  So enjoy this for the rest of the week as well!
