  • I actually won't eat margarine.

    Margarine is erzatz food: even the kind that isn't hydrogenated, pulped, squidged and manipulated is made of more ingredients than I put in cake, including artificial flavours and all manner of weirdness I can't buy at a grocery store or pharmacy. I don't know where it is possible to buy it, but I'm thinking chemical factory rather than food supplier...

    Butter, on the other hand, I can make at home with one ingredient. And it tastes so good I use a whole lot less.

  • Butter...I used to use margarine but then I saw that one stick had a plastic-like coating all over it and I was totally disgusted.
