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.

Butter for me

Margarine for the wife

When I cook I have to sneek in the butter so she doesnt complain. hehe Otherwise she cant tell the difference.

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.

Butter. There is no reason for margarine.

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.

Butter. All other spreads are yucky.

Butter all the way for me, margarine for son and others who can't tell the difference, or like it better :rofl:!

Butter, the whole butter, and nothing but the butter. Margarine is for Great Depression and World War II era survivors.

:smile:The Smart Balance is a spread like margerine but helps reduce cholesteral no trans fat and it has a great butter flavor.

Butter all the way, when I'm not using olive oil. I don't even buy margarine anymore, which disappoints my stepfather. I guess I could buy a small tub for him, since it lasts forever :wink:

Barbara L 10-04-2007 02:03 PM

Most definitely butter. I tried Smart Balance. James thought it was okay, but to me it didn't really taste like anything, and it just felt greasy in my mouth. I try not to eat it too often, but I love butter!

Butter. More versatile and useful.

Plus with the transfats in margarine you may as well use shortening.

Dave Hutchins 10-04-2007 02:44 PM

Butter forever I do not like axel grease

keltin 10-04-2007 02:51 PM

Well, a good margarine like Country Crock that has no Trans Fat is actually better for you than butter. It has less calories, less saturated fat, and no trans fat.

Salt free butter, for sure!
