I recently decided to start to try and cook versus baking. I have cookies down to a science but one type of food has always been intimidating to me–meat. With different types of cuts, temperatures, and methods of cooking, sometimes it seems easier to just go ahead and head for takeout. I am here to tell you that nobody has perfectly cooked something the first time around. In order to learn how to cook meat, you have to go ahead and cook it.
You decide to bake cookies and the recipe calls for margarine and you only have butter or vice versa–what now? Many bakers are lost about what the differences are between butter and margarine in baking. I am here to tell you which to use for the cookies that you want.
