Is it Summer Yet?

Good gosh will this winter ever end?! Nothing says channeling warm weather like something blended in the coupe. So drink up my lovelies! And don’t just hoard this strawberry syrup for cocktails. Stop paying for flavored seltzer and make your own. Or strawberry whip cream or vinaigrette. Or drink it by the spoonful. Just sayin’… It’s good.

Homemade Mayo (not Fallen Chocolate Cake)

The dog ate my cake (and survived both the chocolate and me). So here’s a picture of the mayo. And the dog.

I didn’t intend to make mayo, but ignored a golden rule for making hard boiled eggs (fresh eggs, what was I thinking?! See link below) and wrecked the whites late Friday night during the peeling process. So I succumbed to egg salad. Then I realized we had no requisite condiment. I did however have more eggs, oil, and a stale but still useful lemon. Ok then.

I mostly followed the recipe below. Except I used one whole egg and a hand blender. Take your time, these ingredients certainly do in order to emulsify. (Also below a link to the chocolate cake – my only slice was delicious! Separate eggs when they’re cold.)

Eat up!
