    Ube, pandan, and nata de coco are just a few ingredients that will become household staples after readers familiarize themselves with Bay Area-born Balingit's delectable treasure trove of sweet treats. The writer behind food blog The Dusky Kitchen shows immense pride in her family's Filipino culinary heritage while also embracing a flair for fusion. A palette of dark violet, grassy green, and warm caramel hues colors the pages, showing off nature's most vibrant ingredients in desserts like ube skillet crinkle cookies, milky avocado popsicles, and Thai leche flan. Savory-enhanced sweets such as the calamansi fish-sauce shortbread, ube cheesecake with a Gosomi (Korean crackers) crust, Sampalok tajin snickerdoodles, and Turrones de Casoy MSG brownies show off Balingit's creativity and her penchant for international blends. Among a still narrow selection of Filipino cookbooks available in the U.S., this one stands out for its inviting and singular look at the sweet side of Southeast Asian baking and for Balingit's reminiscences of a childhood and young adulthood full of family, warmth, and memories made through food.

    Maggie's marriage has abruptly and unexpectedly ended after less than two years, leaving her to figure out what comes next—which, at first, involves making questionable financial decisions until she can no longer afford the apartment she shared with her husband. Desperate to take her mind off her woes, Maggie joins a variety of dating apps and has a series of hook ups that range from sexy to creepy. Then, after a mishap at a summer-camp-themed bar, Maggie meets Simon, who is struggling with a break up of his own. Simon is intelligent, caring, and self-aware—everything she should want in a partner, but learning to trust again is more difficult than she expected. Heisey's portrayal of the joys and pitfalls of online dating will ring true, and Maggie's self-deprecating, often snarky humor keeps the deeper themes of the story from getting too heavy. It's a thoroughly modern take on 1990s chick lit, exaggeratedly over the top in the best possible way. Readers will cheer messy Maggie on as she stumbles inelegantly toward a happy, postdivorce life.
