While making this mayo I found myself thinking how small things such as a simple recipe can stay in our minds forever. I’m sure my grandma never imagined that one day that I would be sharing her recipe with millions of readers. I’m sure that she never thought that the memory of her cooking in her little kitchen would be so precious to me.

I think one of the reasons why I love cooking is that making dinner and sharing them with my family is a way to show them that I love them. Sharing a meal is a lot more than eating together, it’s an opportunity to share a moment and make memories around the kitchen table! 

Anyways, if you like this recipe you can thank my grandma for it!
