  1. I couldn't agree more! I am an avid baker and would never use margarine. Actually, I don't buy margarine, never would, and use butter exclusively. Love the quote about the chemist!

  2. The only time I buy margarine now is when I make something for my neighbors, who are vegan. Then I buy the soy based margarine. But otherwise, we're 100% butter in our house.

  3. Ronna and Lisa: Thank you for your comments. When we use the best ingredients, we are rewarded with the best tasting results and nutrition.
