How many goners use real food products -- butter, mayonnaise, eggs, bacon, sugar, oil -- as opposed to altered, fake, or manmade products like margarine, "salad dressing," eggbeaters, bac-os, splenda, and Pam?
I use the real stuff, and try to convince myself to use less bc the flavor goes further.
I do believe it's better to use the freshest and most natural of ingredients than something concocted in a lab and treated with preservatives and god knows what else. but I don't apply the same thought when buying vegetables (I think organic is a nice idea, but here, it's expensive and a pain in the ass to find).
I know I get raves when I make, say, chocolate chip cookies, using "real" ingredients.
does anyone else have an opinion?
