20080428_HomemadeMayo.jpgIt's tough to explain my mayo hatred. I like eggs, lemon juice, salt and vinegar individually. I even love dijon, another key player in the pale-yellow creamy amalgam. But all together as one happy family? Ick.

I'm a "hold the mayo" kinda girl, but Nicole's photos over at Pinch My Salt make a pretty good case for the homemade version. She and Orangette, who wrote her Bon App├ętit column this month on the ever-baffling condiment, have been all about whisking eggs to create their own Best Foods alternative. (Still skeptical on this end.)
