Fats are an important part of cooking. They add flavor, depth, and color (by browning) to your food. Unfortunately, they also add calories, which is why most people think all fats are bad. Now, I’m not the most educated cook, and my recipes are usually Greek, so when I saute, (I very rarely fry) I basically use butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Most Greek recipes don't call for coconut oil, but it's so healthy and adds great flavor, I can't resist.
I wanted to offer more info on cooking with fats like why these fats are so great to cook with? I’m just too busy to do this now… You will have to stay tuned.
