Pesto Pasta

I think I’m on a green colored trend at the moment.

In only 25 minutes, I cooked dinner for two.  Pesto sauce is super easy to prepare and only requires a few ingredients.  Although, having a food processor would be helpful.  Here’s the recipe–

4 ounces of fresh basil leaves

1/4 cup of pine nuts

3 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated

olive oil

S&P to taste

  1. Combine basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts in a food processor and chop.
  2. Add in the cheese and blend a little more until incorporated.
  3. Start drizzling olive oil into the basil mixture and process until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Rise and Shine: Eggs and Avocado


Still on the avocado trend–I’ve been eating them straight out of their shells for the past week, sprinkled with a little sugar. But this morning, I made eggs and toast and added a few slices of the buttery fruit.

Neighborhood Coffeehouse: Bagel and Lox

I’ve been frequenting this neighborhood coffee shop, Zosa Cafe, for months now and it was only today that I had the pleasure of tasting their Bagel and Lox. Very good!

This Bagel and Lox is prepared on a toasted bagel, cream cheese, thinly slice red onion, tomato, smoke salmon, dill and capers. Very good! I don’t have my camera with me, so I had to resort to my camera phone :/

Happy weekend!
