      Olive oil is healthier, and it does tastes delicious too. I exercise a lot on my bicycle, little bit of butter a week with shrimp is not bad at all.
      There is another cooking oil that I have been trying lately and it does add a certain classy flavor to my food: Oak smoked olive oil. It is just heavenly!!! 😀😉
