One of the easiest ways to add a little flavah to your food is using infused oils. They are simple to make and have roughly a gazillion uses. Once you get the method down, have fun experimenting with different flavor infusions. I make them as gifts during the holidays: when one is low on resources one must be high in creativity and heart.
I use a wine bottle to store the oil. Pour oil into the wine bottle and then add it to the pan to ensure you have the right amount.
