Homemade Mayonnaise

One good thing about making your own mayo is that you only make the amount you need to not waste them. I found the recipe here for original recipe that you can try.

The recipe here, I modified based on what I have in my cabinet, and it still tasted good. The biggest change I made in the original recipe is that I reduced the oil amount to 1/4 cup instead of 3/4 cup. So essentially this is low-fat mayo recipe that I modified to my taste.

To add more flavor I used my taco seasoning recipe for fish taco.

Fish taco with homemade mayo

Seasoned Mayonnaise:
-1 large egg yolk
-1 1/2 tsp lemon juice or lime juice
-1 tsp white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
-1 1/4 tsp dijon mustard or honey mustard
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 cup canola oil

-1 tsp taco seasoning, add more for preference

1. Whisk every ingredient except for canola oil. Whisk for 30-40 second.

2. While whisking, add canola oil 1/4 tsp at a time until it's nice and thick. Add more salt if needed.

3. Then add taco seasoning for more flavor.

How Many Expressions Do You Have?

Have you bought so many frames(like me) because they were on sale or you don't have picture to frame yet?

Here is a little activity you can do with your kids or couple do together!

Expressions: framed

I bought this poster size frame from IKEA that I wanted to put on the wall but didn't have picture to frame it. So what Tim and I did was reuse the back side of the paper that comes with the frame, painted yellow circle and each of us took turns to draw faces.

It ended it up being fun mini project so I wanted to share this!


Expressions: poster size

Expressions: materials

- Yellow marker or yellow pencil crayon
- Black marker
- 1 photo frame

1. Flip the paper that comes with the frame and measure how any yellow circle you want.

Expressions: marking

2. Fill in the circle. You can remove the matte board in case it gets dirty.

Expressions: draw

Expressions: circles

3. Take turn with your partner to and draw funny expressions in the each circle.

Expressions: faces

Here is a temporary art piece that you can frame on the wall until you want to replace them. Because this was an activity we did together back in 2014, even still we have it framed.

Give it a try!


Expressions: close up
