I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Mayonnaise

It's so easy to make your own mayonnaise. You probably have most of the ingredients in your house already, and you can whip it up in a matter of minutes. Much cheaper than buying it.


HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE (stores it in a jelly jar)

Ingredients:
*1 egg
*1/4-1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
*1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
*1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
*3/4 cup vegetable oil
*salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
~Combine egg, garlic, lemon juice, & mustard in a blender or food processor.
~Blend on medium speed until smooth.
~Turn speed down to low.
~Pour the vegetable oil in a small stream (drizzle) into the blender. (Very important to pour the oil in very slowly as it blends)
~Blend until the mixture emulsifies and thickens.


'Chipotle Mayo'
*1/2 cup homemade mayo
*2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
*1 tablespoon adobo sauce form chipotle peppers

Variation:
`Substitute the vegetable oil with olive oil
`Substitute egg with 1/4 cup egg beaters
`Add chopped fresh parsley
`If you like heat, add some hot sauce to it
