Quick Bites and Random Cravings: Dutch Speculoos Ice Cream

COOKIE BUTTER — I remember the first time I tried this well-loved spread, it absolutely blew my mind. I guess it helped that I’m crazy over cinnamon that’s why this spiced cookie spread appealed to me so much. There’s been a fad over cookie butter for a couple of months now, and now that’s it’s finally settling down, the spread is more common and available to the local market. Now I was doing the usual grocery run the other day and I came across this glorious tub of speculoos flavored ice cream. It’s under Nestle’s Temptation line of ice cream, they came up with this Dutch Speculoos variant. And since I’m in the lookout for something sweet, I figured this would be a good treat to deal with my random sweet tooth craving.

Spiced cookie flavored ice cream, swirls of speculoos, and cookie chunks. They nailed the combination on this one, from the flavors and the varying texture, I think this would really appeal to you cookie butter addicts out there.

FOODIE.PH Delivery Sundays: Ristras Mexican Grill

I’m starting a new series of posts for the blog — FOODIE.PH Delivery Sundays. I have a love-hate relationship to the fact that I have to go to work on Sundays. Though I really like the hassle-free transportation since most often than not, on weekends the roads are devoid of that nasty rush hour traffic we usually experience during the weekdays. Now my dilemma whenever I have to go to work on a weekend is food, not anyone have a lot of free time to whip up a decent home cooked meal for a packed lunch / dinner and usually during Sundays most of the food purveyors are closed.

Hefty Foodie’s Quick Bites and Random Cravings: Baguio's Strawberry Taho

First food we had at Baguio was this yummy strawberry taho.

A rather simple treat that costs only P20. A cup of the sweet and tart-y goodness of the strawberry matched with taho, this staple comfort food that’s normally served with arnibal (brown sugar and vanilla syrup) and sago (quite similar to pearl tapioca) will sure brighten up your morning.

This yummy strawberry version of taho is sold all over Baguio particularly in Parks and tourist spots.

Will post LOTS of yummy stuff from our weekend getaway in Baguio. Stay tuned 🙂
