Homemade Mayonnaise

Conventional mayonnaise is made with canola oil (a big no-no), sugar, and other ingredients that just aren’t necessary. This one I found to be very tasty and so easy to make!! I use a stick blender (I LOVE that thing!!) and have great success!!

This recipe comes to you from one of my favorite cookbooks: Simone Miller’sZenbelly
