Cashew bars that do the trick

We received a delightful little baked goodie sampler from IT specialist and apparent tycoon-in-the-making Irene Hungria, who coursed these little drops of heaven through one of our web designers, Red. The goodie sampler contained a box of cashew bars (PHP80), chocolate lollipops (PHP50), brownies (PHP80), and food for the gods (PHP135).

We sampled each and were surprised by its quality. The cashew bars were chewy and chocolatey, with just the right mix of crunch from toasted cashew toppings. The chocolate lollipops, while typical Pinoy chocolate, were made so much more attractive with the addition of little candy fruit. The brownies were moist and rich, as were the food for the gods. The prices were definitely worth it.

If you'd like to order or sample any of Irene's handiwork, give her a call or SMS at 09179950870. You can also call Red at 09165958245, but you'd better be female and cute or he won't entertain you. Hahaha!

We heart Yummy Magazine

Thanks to a tip from Wifely Steps, we picked up a copy of Yummy, the newest baby of Summit Media, and WE LOVE IT!

We love the reader-friendly, colorful layout. We love the easy, budget-friendly recipes. We love the relevance of the content to ourselves as individuals and as family people (after all, some of us in the Brunch Club are married, some of us are single).

We may not need to eat out as much if we use the recipes here! LOL

It's also a real treat that fellow food blogger Marketman was given a spotlight!

Seriously, give Yummy a quick run-through and see what a great magazine it is. It's available now at your neighborhood bookstore for just P95.

Krispy Kreme Easter donuts.... Mmm!

For the Makati Brunch Club, Easter means the rising of the Christ and an opportunity for a host of new beginnings.

Kicking it off with spectacular goodies from Krispy Kreme was an amazing way to celebrate Easter!

The special Easter donuts prepared by Krispy Kreme Fort and Krispy Kreme Megamall were welcomed by the Makati Brunch Club with open arms and watering mouths.

We enjoyed three variants: a cream cheese topped egg-shaped donut with chocolate dollops, a cream cheese topped candy sprinkled egg -shaped donut, and a chocolate topped candy sprinkled egg-shaped donut. They were really awesome.

Some of our friends also enjoyed them. :)
