- 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
- 2 cloves garlic ( optional as I like to store my pesto sauce for 2 weeks or so I tend to not add garlic, however it does infuse the flavors, so add it if you will use the sauce in the next three days of making it )
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Cooking cream (optional same guidance as the garlic applies)
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino cheese or Parmesan cheese
Note: You can still add garlic and cream and store it for up to 3 months by freezing it. However, I don’t like the texture of the sauce once it defrosts (it gets too watery).
- Combine the basil, garlic, pine nuts and cheese in a food processor till the ingredients are finely chopped.
- Add the olive oil and cooking cream and blend well.
- Season with salt and pepper.

Oatmeal is one of the most nutritious food out there. I’ve always loved having oatmeal in the morning although the taste is bland on its own, I usually tended to add a lot of honey and fruits to cover up the taste. Until one day a friend of mine told me about a little trick that makes oatmeal on its own, taste amazing. I’ve been doing my oats this way for a while now and thought I’d share this recipe with you.
This recipe is good if you want to decrease calorie intake, if you are diabetic and want to cut down your sugar intake whilst still eating tasty oatmeal or if you just simply want to enjoy oatmeal on its own.
