California Olive Ranch 'Bag-In-Box'

California Olive Ranch

If you go through bottles of olive oil quickly in your kitchen, it's time to bulk up on the good stuff. California Olive Ranch's new Bag-In-Box is filled with 2 liters of their award-winning extra-virgin olive oil (one of PEOPLE's 2019 Food Faves!). It's mild, nutty and rich, making it ideal for cooking and grilling, whisking into dressings, and drizzling over food before serving. The biggest advantage: The box helps your oil last longer. It's dispensed through a handy tap—you can use as little or as much as you need—so air and light cannot enter the container. The EVOO will remain fresh and flavorful for up to 6 months after opening. $37, californiaoliveranch.com

OmMade with Love Peanut Butter

OmMade Peanut Butter

This peanut butter is the real deal. Made with local Virginia peanuts by founder Radhika Murari, these preservative-free spreads have the dreamy-creamy texture and deep nutty flavors that are often missing from other natural peanut butters. You know what else is missing? That oily, gritty, crumbly, must-stir-for-5-minutes mixture that makes getting your PB&J fix more of a hassle. But what makes this peanut butter truly stand out is their knock-out flavors. Their range includes regular, sweet and savory blends—everything from I Dream of Creamy and Chocolate Delight to Vibrant Turmeric and Chai Nirvana. Our suggestion: Don't sleep on the Espresso Ecstasy, literally! There's a shot of pure espresso powder mixed in, and it's a true winner. $9 and up; ommadepb.com or at select Whole Foods stores.

We could pepper you with wine tasting terms like jammy, silky, smooth and full-bodied to tell you why we recommend this bottle. The truth is, it's simply a great tasting, affordable wine for any time and to go with any meal. It's light on the palate so it won't overwhelm your food but forward enough so you can enjoy the bright, ripe fruit flavors. $13; totalwine.com
