First there was butter and it was good
But people said, "NO, it has saturated fats and it is bad!"

Then there was margerine and IT was good
But people said, "No, it has trans fats and they are worse than sat fats.

Then there was Andy M. who said, "To heck with it. Gimme butter, it's the real thing."

We use smart balance for just about everything, including cooking. HOWEVER ... I NEED real butter on my toast.

Made oatmeal cookies with smart balance and stevia and they were really soft and tasty.
