Mayonnaise & Aioli

Who doesn't love mayonnaise, at least a nice garlicy aioli with their BBQ or a dab of mayo on a sandwich or with some crudités or hard boiled eggs?

Homemade mayonnaise made with a quality oil, despite its fat content, isn't unhealthy. Egg yolks, oil, lemon juice and some cream or yoghurt - not that bad, no?

I very rarely have got so many compliments for something I've made as for my mayonnaise or aioli. I make it quite often and I can't say whether I make it so often because I'm fishing for compliments or whether I get so many of these because I make it so often. ;-)

My recipe is foolproof. I'll explain it here in all detail and I don't stop where mayonnaise making normally stops. And I'll tell you why.

The Making of Traditional English Rocking Horses

Ha ha, no, not this one :-) :-) Although this is a nice chap, too ... (the video doesn't show in the preview, that's why I added one of my darling pull-horses here)

No, seriously ... if you always wanted to know how a traditional English rocking horse is made, here you can watch it now. Richard from Kensington Rocking Horses, UK has just set up this video. Beautiful horses!

In case you fall in love with one, it's not too early to order it now for Christmas ;-)

A Certain Shade of Green

I didn't show you an Etsy treasury for a long time now. This one I have to share. It's one of the most beautiful collections I've seen over there. It has it all, fantastic colours and gorgeous items. Very well done, Gayle from WingsofTime!

seagreen, white and gray - summer color!

Clicking on the image will lead you to the original treasury. Enjoy!

PS: Ha ha..., I'm just realizing that my favourite treasuries mostly are green! :-)
