In celebration of the Starbucks Card’s 1st year in the country, Starbucks is finally releasing the first edition Philippine Starbucks Card! The card is inspired by our national bird: the Philippine Eagle and the colors of the national flag plus a native “banig” background.<br /><br />For a few months now, I’ve been wondering when they will be releasing a Philippine edition Starbucks card and I didn’t know that t was already in the works. This card was designed locally and is exclusive to the Philippine market. It will be available in stores starting July 29, 2014.<br /><br />The first edition Philippine Starbucks Card has a matching Philippine Starbucks Card tumbler which you can purchase for ₱565.<br /><br />Along with the first edition Philippine Starbucks Card and in celebration of the Starbucks Card’s  first year in the Philippines, Starbucks also launched several promotions.<br /><br />Starbucks Card Promotions:<br /><br />PHILIPPINE STARBUCKS CARD ACTIVATION PROMOTION<br /><br />From July 29 to 31, 2014, customers who activate a Philippine Starbucks Card with at least ₱1,500 will receive an additional ₱300 load.<br /><br />PHILIPPINE STARBUCKS CARD TUMBLER PROMOTION<br /><br />From July 29 to August 31, 2014, every purchase of the Philippine Starbucks Card tumbler using a Philippine Starbucks Card is entitled to one free Tall handcrafted beverage.<br /><br />STARBUCKS CARD 1ST ANNIVERSARY UPSIZE TREAT<br /><br />Here’s to you and to a year of turning visits into rewards! On August 7, 2014, Starbucks Card 1st anniversary in the Philippines, all handcrafted beverages purchased using any Starbucks Card will be given a complimentary upsize.<br /><br />There are 11 Starbucks Card designs to date. I didn’t it is very addicting to collect. How many Starbucks Card Designs have you collected?<br /><br />TIRAMISU FRAPPUCCINO® BLENDED BEVERAGE (Tall ‐ ₱180, Grande‐ ₱190, Venti ‐ ₱200) Tiramisu Frappuccino® blended beverage features the delicious blended coffee flavored with Tiramisu sauce then topped with bits of biscuits, cheesecake‐ inspired whipped cream, Tiramisu sauce drizzle and a dusting of cocoa powder.<br /><br />BANANA RASPBERRY FRAPPUCCINO® BLENDED BEVERAGE (Grande‐ ₱170, Venti ‐ ₱180) The Banana Raspberry Frappuccino® blended beverage combines the berry goodness of Raspberry Blackcurrant juice with milk and a peeled banana.<br /><br />I was able to try only the Tiramisu Frappuccino Blended Beverage. It was very indulgent and it really tastes like Tiramisu! They even got the liquor-flavor that Tiramisu Cake has but of course, their version doesn’t have the alcohol.<br /><br />DOUBLE CHOCOLATE SALTED CARAMEL COOKIE (₱60)<br /><br />This is sooo sinful and yet taste sooo good! This very chewy chocolate cookie is studded liberally with roasted walnuts, chunks of dark and milk chocolate, gooey caramel squares and finished with a dash of sea salt. It is perfect when paired with coffee.<br /><br />This MANGO COCONUT SANS RIVAL CAKE (Slice ‐ ₱125, Whole ‐₱1,150) is my favorite among the new food items for July. It showcases the perfect combination of sweet and smooth mango butter cream icing, toasted coconut shards and three layers of crunchy and chewy meringue wafer.<br /><br />The BACON PARMESAN STROMBOLI (₱120) is very flacky and buttery. It’s like a differently-shaped croissant that is filled with  bacon, tomato, parmesan and mozzarella cheese and topped with chopped parsley. If you love bacon and cheese, then you’ll definitely love this.<br /><br />CHICKEN TEX‐MEX WRAP (₱170)<br /><br />And who doesn’t like wraps? Specially a warm soft tortilla filled with tender chicken breast fillet, roasted squash, corn, red beans and finished with pimiento dressing and freshly chopped cilantro.<br /><br />This ROASTED CHICKEN PESTO AND SHIITAKE MUSHROOM ON CIABATTA BREAD (₱165) is our family’s favorite sandwich It is filled with juicy roasted chicken breast fillet tossed with aromatic pesto mayo sauce, Shiitake mushroom, and melted Emmenthal and cheddar cheese on classic Ciabatta bread.<br /><br />If you’re looking for a healthy alternative then this TUNA MELT ON DARK MULTI‐GRAIN BREAD (₱175) is the right choice. It is made of  dark whole wheat bread filled with hearty and healthy classic tuna dill salad, slices of hardboiled egg and creamy melted cheese.<br /><br />HAM AND EGG SALAD ON CHALLAH BREAD (₱175) is stuffed with juicy slices of ham, tomatoes and creamy and tangy egg salad served on a soft and crusty Challah bread topped with toasted sesame seeds.<br /><br />I was able to take home a few bites of sandwiches. According to peanutbutter♥, this SAUSAGE AND PEPPERS CASEROLE ON CORNMEAL BREAD (₱170) tastes like pizza without the pepperoni. It’s actually made of crusty and chewy cornmeal bread filled with sliced sausages and bell peppers cooked in tomato Italian sauce topped with oozing cheddar cheese.<br /><br />If you’re looking for something light and meatless, this RATATOUILLE ON CHEESE SEMOLINA BREAD (₱160) is perfect. It is made with crusty warm artisan multigrain bread is stuffed with a delicious blend of cheese, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, Shiitake and portobello mushrooms, garlic and onions.<br /><br />Now, it’s time we love all the MONDAYS of August (August 4, 11, 18 & 25)!  You can enjoy a complimentary Tiramisu Frappuccino® blended beverage when you buy three (3) Tiramisu Frappuccino® blended beverage on all Mondays of August from 2pm to 4pm. I think it’s the best time to schedule having coffee with your friends.<br /><br />The post The Philippines Starbucks Card, Tiramisu Frappuccino, and New Food Items for July 2014 appeared first on The Peach Kitchen.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
