Recipe Title:  Pesto with cilantro & serrano pepper
By: Miriam Borys
¼ lb. fresh basil
3 garlic gloves
¼ cup olive oil (add more if the pesto is too thick)
1 tbsp. serrano pepper
¼ cup   pecorino romano cheese
1/8 cup chives
1/8 cup cilantro
salt – start with ¼ tsp. and add more to taste
1.     Rinse well and remove stems of fresh basil.
2.    Spin dry to remove water
3.    Into the processor add basil, garlic, oil, cracked pepper, serrano pepper, cilantro, and salt to taste.
4.    Blend until the pesto sauce is the consistency you desire.
5.    Serve as a sauce for pasta, as a spread for a healthy sandwich or on a grilled cheese sandwich
(see my video 3 cheese pesto bliss at to see how this delicious sandwich is made.

Recipe Title: How to poach an egg (click here to go directly to my YouTube video of this recipe)

1 egg
Pot or deep frying pan of medium boiling water
1 tbsp. white vinegar (white wine vinegar will do as well)
1 spider (kitchen tool with holes to remove egg from hot water while allowing the water to drain off)
Paper towels or a clean cloth
Bring the water to boil. Turn heat down to medium and add vinegar to medium boiling water.
Crack egg into a small bowl.
Place the bowl just under the surface of the water and allow the egg to gently slip into the water. (see photo below)
Cook for 2 minutes for a perfectly soft cooked egg.
Cook longer for a hard cooked egg.
Remove from the water with the spider and carefully place the bottom of the spider on a cloth or paper towel. This removes all the excess water and will prevent the English muffin from becoming soggy.
Place the poached egg onto the English muffin or tomato and top with desired amount of hollandaise sauce.
