"You and I are like oil and water, and we've been trying, trying, trying to mix it up..."

I have been a fan of the macadamia nut for a long time. In fact, I've been known to polish off a whole can of Mauna Loa Macadamia Nuts in one sitting. Terribly unhealthy for sure (both for the waistline and for the complexion), but intensely satisfying - especially after a long day at the office! However, after suffering from a severe case of acne - which I am am sure was a result of my Macadamia Nut addiction - I decided to find a better (and less ascetically damaging) way of enjoying this nutty delight. I sat on my couch and pondered,

"How can I have my macadamia nuts and eat it too?"

Luckily, my answer came in the mail the next evening - in the form of a bottle of Epicurean Organics Macadamia Nut oil from the Mountain Rose Herbs company. Since my cooking skills are ermmmm...very basic (i.e. making grilled cheese sandwiches usually sends me into a paniced frenzy), I decided to try my new discovery to as substitute for butter on my morning toast. MMMM! The subtle but nutty flavor of the macadamia nut totally enhanced the whole grains by tenfold! And the best part is, a little (oil) goes a long way (in flavor), so the only thing that expands is my wallet. If a cooking dunce like me can make a yummy dish using this miracle oil, Imagine what a culinary expert can do (macadamia nut oil can be used as a substitute for cooking oil)!

I am uber glad I found this cool product - my skin is clearer, my waist is trimmer, and I still get my Macadamia nut fix. So thank you Mountain Rose Herbs for letting me have my cake and allowing me to eat it too!
