My Review:

Of all condiments, mayonnaise is my favorite.  We go through our fair share in the household.  So, I was beyond excited when I learned there is a cookbook dedicated to all things mayo.  The Mayonnaise Cookbook has so many recipes that I'm stoked to try.

Other than the fact that the pages don't always lay flat, this cookbook is one of my favorite I've owned.  Not only does it have so many recipes (some I've made and more I plan on making) but it also full of tips, pointers, facts and strategies.  The cookbook is divided into different sections, with 50 recipes and illustrations to help you create a delicious appetizer, sandwich, or meal.  

We've cooked up a few of the recipes already, with plans to make more. The recipes do not require high-dollar ingredients.  As a bonus, there's a section with diagrams for volume, temperature, and weight conversions.  Also, there's a few hacks on ways to use mayo outside of the kitchen.  For instance, mayo works great as a cuticle softener.  You can even learn how to make your own mayo!

I'm not a cookbook collector, but I'm sure this is one I will keep and refer to often. There are loads of meals that I can't wait to still try.

Win It!

I was one of those kids that fell in love with MAYO. I took mayo sandwichs to school. This is one thing I never run of always have a extra one in the cabinet.

My favorite is mustard - in all shapes and forms. Trader Joe's had a fantastic dill pickle mustard this summer.

I like using mayonnaise, honey mustard and horseradish in some of my recipes.

Heather! said...

Oh, cut me and I bleed mayonnaise! And I love all the summer salads that start with mayo, too. I would give up all other condiments if I had to choose just one, and go with mayo for life! LOL
