discoveries after the wedding bells

A Memoir of Sweetness

The other day, i got an sms from hubby asking me what time i would be home and instructions to look in the freezer when i did.

Oooh, i love surprises! I think my right foot caught on to the excitement and was stepping on the gas a little more than usual.

When i got home, i headed straight to the kitchen and found this

I love silvanas (and everything else that is sweet!)

i found out hubby got this box of goodies from an officemate who had a friend who makes these

opening the box revealed golden oval pastries

I could almost imagine the buttery goodies melt in my mouth just by looking at them

too bad they didnt last very long (we obviously gobbled them up)

they would have made a great pair with steaming hot coffee on a wet and rainy day like today!

  3. I haven’t tried one ever. I may just do so this weekend. By the way, where can I buy that avocado cake you blogged about? I mean, where is that exactly located?

      • Thanks PediaMom. I reside in Pasig, so a trip to Tiendesitas is convenient for buying that delicious avocado cake.

        Thanks, Mrs Lavendula. I used to live in San Roque Capitol so I know Three Sisters and I love Charlie’s.

  5. Hi Pediamom! Welcome to the blog =) i agree, silvanas would be nice with piping hot earl grey!

    Hi FLF, the avocado cake i featured is in East Kapitolyo Drive, Pasig City, if you know where Charlie’s Grill and Grind is, then its a stone’s throw away from there.

    Hi JP, let me get back to you on the details of how you can get a hold of these silvanas.

  6. I never had silvanas before our visit to the Philippines last December and I’ve been promising myself that I would try to make them. But now, we are coming back for another visit this Christmas!! So I have put these on the top of my must-eat list. Also, I’m going to go through your archives for some restaurant ideas. My parents live in Makati but we’re interested in doing daytrips throughout the area. I know you’ve blogged about so many great restaurants so I can’t wait to try some of them!

  8. I know this! An officemate of mine brings us a couple of boxes everytime he goes home to Nueva Ecija. I was told that is the only place you buy their Silvanas. Yummy!

  11. hi Tangled Noodle, Midge and Doc! you must try these silvanas, they’re crunchy and chewy at the same time with a creamy center!

    hi Kubiertos and Dyanie, yup i think these come from nueva ecija or bulacan (?!) but i think you can find some in tiendesitas.

    Dyanie, you know, i havent tried pastries from house of silvanas, i must give it a try! by the way, thanx for letting me know that comments were not possible for my post regarding lia’s, i fixed the problem now.
