I have a huge sweet tooth, but I do go for savory snacks occassionally. Here's one that I've enjoyed lately: the Truffle Shredded Corn by local purveyor Mexi.corn!
I love that the corn is crisp and sweet, for one, and the balance of the cheesy, creamy, and truffle-y flavours is spot-on! (inlove) I also really appreciate that it’s shredded, which makes it much easier (and less messy!) to eat (teeth)

I don't know why but rainy weather = pasta weather for me! Here's a comforting treat to try if you’re looking to warm up: Pizza Express’ Pasta al Funghi!
It’s got penne with truffle paste plus gran padano and mascarpone cheese—pretty rich stuff! I love how it’s got all these crisp, charred bits on top while the pasta underneath stays nice and al dente (teeth)

10 Unexpected Things We Spotted in Celebrity House Tours
Do you give names to the stuff you own?
I'm a sucker for Western pastries as well as Filipino flavors, so I was super excited to find out Wildflour has new flavors of their Cronuts!
There's Calamansi, Guava, and Ube-Cheese! They're all executed so well, with a crisp and flaky pastry plus billowy and not-so-sweet fillings. It's really hard to pick a favorite but if I had to stick to one, I'd definitely go for the guava—I love that distinct tropical flavor it's got, and the way it comes together with the pastry cream is real swoon-worthy. (inlove)

I've been hankering for lighter desserts lately, and this Special Mango Shortcake by Sainte Anne Cakes Manila totally hit the spot!
It's got a simple but stellar combination of sponge cake, whipped cream, and fresh mangoes—but they all come together so beautifully! The the cake is fluffy, the cream is just lightly sweetened, and the mangoes are perfectly ripe and juicy. I think with such a simple components you really have to make sure each part is of the best quality, and Saint Anne Cakes nailed it here!

Here’s a cake I really enjoyed this week: Carlito’s Catering’s Ube Chiffon Cake with Floral Buttercream! (inlove) First of all, how gorgeous does it look from the outside:
More than that though, the ube flavor on this cake is pretty intense (inlove) It’s got layers of silky-smooth buttercream, soft chiffon, and lots of ube halaya. There’s no skimping on the halaya here—you get a good amount in every bite, from end to end!
