Lemon Garlic Aioli

I got this recipe from my sister. Every time I make it, I need to call her because I lost whatever scrap of paper I wrote it down on. Now, it will be on the internet forever and I’ll never need to ask again!

This is a really great dressing for hamburgers, which I believe it was designed for. I use it on my grilled portabella burgers, it is incredible. If you are not a gung ho garlic eater, maybe you should stick to 2 cloves instead of 3. As far as the raw egg, there is always a risk eating raw egg but its low.

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

In a food processor, add all but the olive oil.

Mix it all up til it looks something like this:

Then very, very slowly stream the olive oil into the mix, while running the food processor constantly until aioli is thick and creamy. Your end product should look like this:

Fajita Seasoning

This is part one of a wonderful steak chili recipe I have coming at a later date, but you can use it anytime you need one of the fajita seasoning packets for whatever you are making. Homemade fajita seasoning tastes better, it less expensive and is so much healthier without all that sodium hidden in the pre-made packets. I got this recipe from Cusine Magazine, the absolute best. My mom got me a subscription for my birthday a year or two ago and it has taught me so much. All of the recipes have pictures, there are no ads and it is the perfect aide to someone learning their way around the kitchen.

  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. each paprika, onion powder, dried oregano, and kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. each ground coriander, garlic powder, and black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. each red pepper flakes, ground ginger, and cayenne pepper
