And they asked him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?”
And Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive
their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead
are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. Blessed is the one who
is not offended by me.”

Good stuff. This makes about a cup and a quarter of finished product. Credit to Alton Brown.
Combine the following ingredients in a glass mixing bowl:
One large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
a couple pinches of sugar
Two teaspoons of fresh squeezed lemon and a tablespoon of white wine vinegar—only add half at this point.
You'll also need a cup of safflower and olive oil mixed—you decide the proportions. Olive oil adds taste while safflower oil is more neutral and light. Don't add this to the mix yet and when you do add it you will be adding slowly.
Vigorously whisk the ingredients (sans oil). After you have it mixed well you can start adding oil by drops while continuously whisking. By the time you have added about a quarter of a cup of oil you should have a good emulsion going and then you can add the other half of the lemon juice/vinegar. Once that is well mixed then finish adding the oil. At this point you don't have to whisk quite as vigorously and you can add your oil a little faster. After the oil is all added then enjoy!
