"When I'm at a Chinese restaurant having a hard time with chopsticks, I always hope that there's a Chinese kid at an American restaurant somewhere who's struggling mightily with a fork."--Rick Budinich
2 sticks of butter 4 egg yolks 1 T. fresh lime (or lemon) juice 1/4 t. salt dash of cayenne pepper
In a small saucepan, heat butter until it bubbles. Do not let it brown. Put egg yolks, lime juice, salt and cayenne in blender and turn on low speed. While blender runs, remove cover and pour in hot butter in a slow, steady stream until blended. To keep it warm, set in pan with a couple inches of hot water.
