  • And butter isn't necessary unhealthy. You NEED fat in your diet to absorb a lot of vitamins and minerals. - 11/7/15

  • What is the advantage of "studding" the onion over just adding an onion, cloves, and a bay leaf to a sauce?

    Why boast that the onion doesn't add fat or calories to the recipe of BUTTER and FLOUR? How about developing a sauce that is healthy and tasty instead? - 10/17/15

  • Milk, butter and flour for the white sauce doesn't sound all that healthy to me. - 3/22/15

  • What sort of bay leaf? A fresh one? Those dry bay leaves crumble and break. If I try to stick a clove through a bay leaf it will just make a mess. - 2/8/15
