Mustard Horseradish Sauce, Recipe


One of the things I was most excited about when I made a Roast Tenderloin of Beef was leftovers to make sandwiches with. I loaded up on arugula, cheddar cheese, and topped it all off with mustard horseradish sauce on wheat bread. The mustard horseradish sauce was really easy to make and was so good (especially with homemade mayo to start it off with). That was a week of delicious lunches to look forward to! What else could I have this sauce with? Hmm….

Homemade Mayonnaise, Recipe


I know its not the most exciting, exotic, or appealing post I’ve ever done but I have to dedicate one blog post to homemade mayonnaise. I know a lot of you hate mayo so I apologize in advance but I’m the girl that would dip her fries in mayo every night of the week given the opportunity. Its the french in me.

I looked up a few mayonnaise recipes and their reviews before settling on this one from Epicurious. The lemon and dijon were mild but added a nice freshness to the mayo. If you follow the recipe exactly you will get about 3/4 of a cup of delicious homemade mayo. Be warned: your whisking arm will be tired when you are done.

I made this mayo to use on chicken sandwiches with roasted red peppers, avocado, provolone, and leftover roasted chicken. Definitely worth the effort.
