Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Sauce
THANK YOU for sharing this recipe!!! So simple and o-so awesome!!! I modified it slightly, as I didn't have a whole head of garlic to roast. I sauteed 4-5 big gloves in butter, then added the rest of the ingredients to the sauteed garlic: 2 T butter, flour whisked in milk, pepper and salt, until thick. I tossed the sauce with rotini pasta and roasted veggies: cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, onion and garlic, and LOVED the results!!!! Thank you, again, for sharing! This will definitely be my "go to" white sauce recipe!!! xxoo Jen

Moist Banana Muffins
GREAT, easy recipe! I used whole wheat flour, turbinado sugar (which adds a funky, delicious crunchy-sweetness!), and added chopped walnuts, a teaspoon of vanilla and just a splash of almond milk, to make the batter a little easier to work with. The recipe makes HUGE muffins, if you're just making the recommended 12 (I ended up having to bake about 30 minutes, not 20), but soooo moist, delicious and easy-peasy! Thanks for sharing!!!

Home Made Mayonnaise
What a fun recipe! I never would have thought to make my own mayo (always assumed it'd be too tedious or time-consuming), but my mom was talking about tuna sandwiches and home-made mayo being a childhood treat, which got me thinking . . . and with this recipe, discovered it is neither tedious nor time-consuming! On the contrary!!!! I added a tad too much garlic (not a bad thing in and of itself—in fact, normally a GREAT thing in my book—but if using the mayo for a recipe that wouldn't use garlic, might be an issue), but otherwise, was an incredibly easy, deee-lish recipe! I used 1/2 c. canola oil and 1/4 olive oil and ground mustard, and my Cuisinart food processor to make the mayo. The cool thing about that is that the food pusher/plunger thingy of my Cuisinart is hollow, with a hole on the bottom; turned upside down, I was able to pour the oil through it, thus being able to control the speed at which I added the oil. Have to admit, this was a tip mentioned in the Cuisinart manual, not my own "discovery!" ;) As someone else said, I'll never be without mayo again! (well, unless I'm out of eggs, or oil . . . ) Thank you for sharing this recipe!
