I LOVE to cook! I also love to eat. I decided that I wanted to share some of the awesome recipes that I have found and tried with you. Books and food often go hand in hand (but NEVER in the same hand!) Each week I will share the recipe and my own pictures so you can see what it looks like when an average joe makes it. 😉
This week I present:
*hangs head in shame* I have to say that I wasn’t even thinking of book blogging again just a week ago. And I haven’t ran this feature often so it didn’t occur to me to photograph it. I have to say though I was pretty happy with the turn out!
I had read some article on Facebook about “X number of things you should know how to make on your own”. Most of the things on the list I could or have made on my own. One of them that I had yet to try was making my own mayo. I cannot stand Miracle Whip. My husband and I are a house divided on this. I could only imagine how much better mayo would be if I could make it on my own. Almost everything homemade tastes way better than the shelved product. I used this article form AllRecipes to make my own mayo. It was pretty good. It certainly tasted like mayo but I think with a little tweaking it will be much better. I’m definitely going to be trying the garlic aioli to use with fries because I just recently found that godsend concoction. YUM!
I then took my freshly made mayo to make my lunches for the first part of the week. I used the Sriracha Egg Salad recipe from BudgetBytes and it was fantastic! I halved the amount of sriracha to start. You can always add more but you can’t take it back out in cooking. That ended up being a safe bet as I was pleased with the half amount. The green onions really added a nice crunch to my egg salad. I also learned a better way to make hard boiled eggs. The egg was solid all the way through but the yolk was softer than when I make them the way I was taught. I’ll be using Beth’s method from now on!
