What do you all think?

Verlee,  I have not switched to olive oil.  I use it with cooking but not with baking.  I don't
even like the sound of it! Yuk!!!  I haven't seen any baking recipes with olive oil in them
either.  I would have to taste test before doing it!! I think there would have to be a lot of
the VBB's saying it was ok before I would try it.

I've never tried that. Tongue out  I don't like olive oil so I can't  even imagine it.
Maybe it's something I should at least try.

I use Cannola oil more than Olive oil.    I think Olive oil gives too strong a flavor for me.

I always use olive oil for everything.  I use it in baking, too.  Don't taste any difference.  I don't use any other kind of oil.

I never tried olive oil in baking, but when I am cooking, I use half olive oil and half Veg. oil.  I think the olive oil makes the food take on a better taste.

Olive oil has been used for centuries  as an ingredient in baking.

Well, based on these responses, I am going to give olive oil a try in my baked goods. My son is getting ready to deploy in July and I'll be baking lots more for his goodie packages. Thanks for all your input, VBB-ers!!!

I love olive oil but never bake with it unless a recipe specifically calls for it.  I do cook with it all the time however!!

Wrong! There is a very different taste and texture. Maybe using the light olive oil is ok, but canola oil is just as healthy.

It really depends on the olive oil.  A number of brands are labeled as being very light and almost fruity.  I would not use the same type that I would for frying or sauteing.  I would agree that they are right about it being more healthful.  A last note, when many of my cookbooks were written (I've have some that I've used the entire 40 years I've been married), the choice of ingredients were so different.  In 1971 I never heard of balsamic vinegar, for example.  If all my cookbooks were being written now, I suspect I would find lots of changes - in ingredients, cooking techniques, etc.
