That would be fine, escept we do not all have Whole Foods where we live and we can not all afford the place if we did have one.

Butter. Although I do cook with both olive oil and canola oil too.

Sometimes, when I am baking a lot of things, like at holiday time, I use 1/2 margerine as a cost saving measure and I don't believe the recipe suffers.
For everyday, we use Smart Balance on toast and vegetables, but we use tons of butter in cooking. also.

Really depends on what I am preparing. I use only butter for my chess pies and butter cookies. I will use margarine in some other dishes especially veggies.

At holiday time or for Shabbat, can not use butter as most holiday meals feature meat (rib roast, prime ribs, brisket, turkey, chicken) and all cakes and pastries have to be pareve.

What did people used to use years ago before relying upon commercial margarine? The 'stuff' has been around for a long time but not forever.

Various vegetable oils, including olive oil, cottonseed oil, sunflower seed oil, which are all pareve, is my guess.

Unsalted butter and olive oil as a potential mix.

It's been around long enough that Mark Twain mentioned it in his book, Life on the Mississippi.
