+ 1 for OXO. Still going strong two years after purchase. Also, just returned from international travel - had this scale in my checked luggage, definitely got beat up along the way and it's still in perfect condition.

How long do you think these last before going stale/soft? Should be eaten immediately? Same day?

Plugra! It's pricey but at least in pie crusts and tart shells, I think it makes a big difference. Apparently it has a higher butterfat content than most U.S.-made butters, which means more buttery flavor. I also like Kerrygold, which is a bit more affordable, but I do think Plugra is the best.

Great images! But as an editor, I have to point to the lack of editorial review here. Misspellings of such basic terms as "muesli" and "frittata" are not good news for a food blog.

Just made these - DELICIOUS!!!! I am not a big muffin person, I usually find them too heavy and dense. Cake flour was an amazing call. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

I always use unsalted butter and used to buy whatever was on sale. Then, my baker friend informed me that butters produced in the U.S. have a higher water content than European butters. Now, I use Plugra or Kerrygold if I'm making a pie crust, tart shell, or flaky pastry. It's pricier but I do see a difference.
