As an Asian, any type of party we have always include Asian food. Dishes like egg rolls, spring rolls, stir-fry, noodles and fried rice are some of the staples you’ll find in our gatherings. Yes, even on Thanksgiving, there’s at least one Asian food in the spread.

Now that warmer weather is here, I find myself craving for light and fresh recipes. One of my favorite salads to make is this Asian salad with hints of sesame, mandarin slices and crunchy noodles. But this time around, I thought I’d make this Asian salad recipe extra special with fresh and all-natural ingredients. Instead of opting for canned mandarin, I went with a fresh one. Instead of using bottled Asian salad dressing, I made one from scratch. And finally, instead of using canned crunchy rice noodles for the topping, I’m switching it up to this crunchy Alexia Onion Rings made of all-natural ingredients. Let’s get fancy!

Mocha Roll Recipe with McCafé

Today, I’m sharing with you a mocha roll recipe that I shared on my social media channels a few mornings ago. I love my morning “me” time during the week. It’s that time of the day when I can enjoy a cup of coffee over breakfast, by myself, after a few minutes of at-home workout. The husband has already left for work and Louis is still in bed, asleep. Don’t get me wrong. I love breakfast or brunch time with the hubby, or family and friends, especially on the weekends. But whenever I can enjoy my alone time in the morning, I grab the opportunity. I’m someone who loves independence and love my moment of silence when I can read my emails, catch up on reading my blogger babes’ posts, or browse new arrivals and sales on my favorite online shops. So from time to time, I love to make this mocha roll cake to pair with my new morning partner, Kraft McCafé coffee. It’s the ultimate morning treat for the coffee lover.

Orange Creamsicle, Emergen-C

Post-Workout Orange Creamsicle Recipe

After a good workout or even just walking my four-legged baby Louis out about 2 miles a day, I come home dehydrated, reaching out for something to cool me down. It’s even worse during the summer when the temperature starts rising up to 90 degrees (F) or 100 even (when in Texas). I just have to fill a huge glass with ice and then fill it up with water. But sometimes a bottle of Dasani needs something else. After working out, you need to replace key electrolytes that you lose through perspiration. So I started adding in Emergen-C to my bottle of Dasani after I exercise. Not only is it great at hydration, it gives you immune support and enhanced energy, thanks to the 7 B vitamins and C (more Vitamin C than 10 oranges). I like hitting two birds with one stone. But how about if you can hit three: (1) hydration, (2) immune support and energy from the vitamins, and (3) summer treat? That’s why I thought of making a post-workout orange creamsicle using Emergen-C and Dasani. And guys, it is really good. Let me share with you the recipe below.
