19: Blushing Cupcakes

Cupcakes are just the best! :) I am always on the search for good food and I'm pleased to know that another cafe has made a place on my list, The Blushing Cupcakes Cafe.
The Blushing Cupcakes Cafe does not only offer cupcakes but also offers pasta, pizzas and more. Go ahead and try to visit their place to sample their different creations most especially their cupcakes. :)

The cupcakes are awesome and not overly sweet, the way I want it to be. They are moist with just the right amount of sweetness to it. I would definitely be back at this cafe and try every cupcake they have!

I don't have my camera with me that day so I just took pictures using my VGA camera phone, hence the low quality of my pictures.

18: Lil Orbits

These mini donuts were very much appreciated during my childhood. I thought that they don't sell these anymore. Imagine my surprise when I saw the stall selling these in a mall in Pasig. I literally bounced my way to the stall of Lil Orbits and ordered a dozen of these mini donuts.

Lil Orbits Donuts!
Freshly made.
Almost finished!
The mini donuts were cooked right after you placed your order so you are 100% sure that they are freshly made. It also comes in a variety of flavors like cookies and cream, chocolate, strawberry and more. :)

Mine's chocolate flavored- that way it has been since my childhood. :)

17: Vice

My remaining summer days were spent browsing through numerous bookstores mostly in the cooking section and of course, day dreaming that I can be like Martha Stewart, Ina Garten or Nigella Lawson. :) Or I could be them even for just a day. Haha! Wishful thinking. :) Lalalalala. Or buy their every single book published and cook everything written in it. Another wish. But since I am still studying and am too shy asking for my parents money to buy them, I would just hunt secondhand copies and be content at that. Anyway, my blabbering is getting me nowhere so I have to stop. Now.

Moving on, these are the new additions to my ever growing cookbook collection:
These are from the Food Lovers cookbook collection but the pasta cookbook (bottom left) was given to me a long time ago. I also collect back issues of any food magazine just because. :)
Yummy Magazine (pictured above left) is my food magazine bible. :) I constantly look for back issues of this magazine because I gave away my old issues to my aunt who lives abroad.
And now, for my best buy this summer:
THIS! :) This cookbook was originally priced at Php 965.00 but it was on sale and I bought it for Php 50.00 only! Hahaha! A far cry from its original price. :)  It is still in good condition but has no plastic cover like it should have. Maybe these are the old books that needs to be sold to give way for the new ones. Whatever the reason is, I think this one is waiting for me on the shelf. :)

16: Yummy Eats Live! [LATE]

Last May 26, we went to Yummy Eats held at Rockwell Tent in Power Plant Mall, Makati City. Here's a rundown of what happened during Yummy Eats:

Aileen Anastacio hosting a cook-off.
Milk tea (?) and cookies and cream mochis
I'm not really a fan of mochi but after tasting their ice cream filled mochi, my perspective suddenly took a left turn. Charot! But seriously speaking, this is the only mochi that didn't made me gag. :) I especially love the melt-in-your-mouth creamy goodness of the cookies and cream mochi. And the mochi itself feels velvety in my mouth. Cool ain't it? :)

McCormick also released to the public its newest product, McCormick Bread Spread. The spreads resemble a lot like a toothpaste which I find quaint. This also made the product perfect for road trips! Just squeeze a generous amount on a biscuit or bread then you're good to eat! :) My personal favorite among these 3 is herb parmesan since I don't really like anything pesto. :) The garlic flavor comes on too, well, garlicky for my taste but I think that for those who loves garlicky flavors would instantly like this.

Unit 16 Sweets
These eye-catching wrappers would instantly make anyone proud to be a Filipino. Unit 16 Sweets proudly boasts Pinoy pride at its best. One would be surprised to know that these chocolates are all individually wrapped (as I have previously read from Yummy) and not commercially made. Just think of all the love one put into making each of these and you're full. :)

The Fruit Garden
Sugar cookies
Cupcake Boutique

All in all, it was a fun-filled day full of food. :) Looking forward to next year's Yummy Eats! :)
