Foodie Friday: What Have I Been Eating???

First Friday of the month: Food Finds / Dessert

Dessert. Cake. Ice Cream. Nuts. Chocolate. For the past month, my foodie finds have been mostly baked goods and sweets, except for this natural cracked pili nut. I really have a sweet tooth and it's simply a challenge for me to refuse desserts. The sad truth is that I have an intolerance for gluten and eggs -- what pastries are mainly made of. Well, Mother's Day naman...okay, Mother's month, hehehe, so I'll "cheat" na muna! =)

Just over the past few days, I've indulged in decadent chocolate baked goodies that were given to me as a Mother's Day treat. It's a fabulous time to be a (blogger)mom right now! I am so grateful *blessed* and thrilled to receive these gifts.

Let me share my recent #foodiefinds -- these edible delights I've been enjoying with my family (also posted on my Instagram). This round-up can also give you ideas on what to give to moms with a sweet tooth like me.

Cookie Bar - Podium Mall

Dense, dark, chewy cookie cake topped with caramel and glazed whole pecan nuts. 
It's a different take on your usual chocolate cake.

Rita's Italian Ice

Click here to watch how tempting and chunky this halo-halo ice genius is -- made with ube halaya, mongo beans, langka, makapuno strips, topped with Frozen Custard, saba and pinipig!
The brownie a'la mode is layers of warm fudge brownies and frozen custard then topped with syrup. 

Rustan's Fresh grocery store (baked at home)

This is something I made with the girl coz she likes rainbow sprinkles.
Simply add eggs, oil and water to the cake mix and here you have a light and fluffy Funfetti cupcake! Share and enjoy with your family or surprise mom with this homebaked gift!

The Cracking Monkey

My first time to actually crack open a pili nut and it was made simple and easy with this patented cracking tool. Crack and pull out the naturally fresh and ready to eat pili nut!

Honeybon Cafe

I am a chocoholic. This moist flourless decadent chocolate cake is layered with custard and covered in rich choco ganache. Simply divine! I didn't expect this to be flourless!!!

Have a sweet and sunny food-tastic weekend and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of us moms!
