No margarine. Ever It's nasty stuff. If I'm cooking Kosher, I use vegetable oils, and choose "other" dishes that don't need butter.

Absolutely no margarine. Butter tastes better and is MUCH better for you.

Remember, just because something is lower in fat, does not mean it's better for you.

We like butter most of the time, but I do keep a container of "tub butter" (soft-spread margarine) on hand for buttering toast, bread, or baked potatoes.

I always use butter. Butter is a wonderful thing. I particularly like European butters.

Margerines are foul and bad for you.

I do cook for a dairy-allergic person and use margerine once in awhile, though. Lately I've switched to organic vegan Smart Balance which tastes 1000 times better than regular smartbalance.
