 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4                    egg yolks
      1/2                lemon -- juiced
      1/2  stick         ice cold butter -- sliced
           shake         cayenne
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
 
 Mix yolks and juice in saucepan WITHOUT heat.  Turn on LOW heat.  Whisk
 gently until it’s mayonaiss-ey.  Add cayenne, salt and pepper.  Whisk
 in butter one slice at a time until it looks like it can't hold
 anymore.
 
 If it starts to curdle, add an ice cube and whisk around until it
 settles.
 
 Adjust the lemon juice to taste:  1/4 lemon for less intense, 1/2 for
 more intense.
