Basic Mayonnaise Recipe. I must appalogize to those of you who tried this recipe before I fixed it. I had posted to add the lemon juice in the food processor with the egg yolk mixture which is not correct, thanks to Devonviolet for bringing that to my attention. It is now fixed ;) Oops...should of payed more attention when typing it up.

Sorry, I can't give this any stars. I tried this recipe, and it never thickened. I think adding the lemon juice, at the beginning, caused the egg to curdle before it could thicken. I then tried my own recipe, and added the lemon juice and mustard, after the oil and egg had thickened, and it worked fine.
