This giveaway is now over....Chef Fabio Viviani,Top Chef fan favorite and author of Fabio’s Italian Kitchen, favorite recipe {Plus a Giveaway!}

This giveaway is now over....
I recently received a sample of Bertolli Olive Oil and a recipe to try...my confession, I used some of my Bertolli Olive Oil sample in this Heath Bar Crunch Cake! I was out of regular oil and decided to try this in the cake---which I was a little worried thinking that we might be able to tell that there was olive oil in the cake rather than regular oil---and no one noticed---score one for this mama and Bertolli!

I also used the Bertolli Olive Oil in several pasta dishes, and with warmer weather here I love using it in my vegetable dishes...like oven roasted potatoes, seasoned with garlic powder.
