    I’ll be cooking for someone who has Krohn’s disease. She can’t eat butter. Hard to imagine this without real butter. What would you suggest?

      If she can have oils, coconut oil is a healthy alternative that lends richness to foods. A high quality walnut or olive oil or a blend of any two of these three oils would be delicious. Check to make sure she can have oils, however.
