Welcome to Cooking with Character! If you’re here, you probably  are like me and have a love of Disney and a love of food! I’m glad you decided to stop by and see me!

I started this blog because my husband and I were planning a trip to Disney World with both sets of parents, and I decided to cook my way through the Disney cookbooks I buy each visit as a souvenir. That simple idea evolved into this blog. I can never (and I do mean never) leave a recipe alone, and frequently change, alter, or ignore whatever I want. I also decided that just cooking from the books wasn’t enough. I wanted to do themed meals based around different movies.

And so, I decided that if I was going to do all that, I might want to share it with others. I already post all my baking and cooking things to Facebook anyway, so I knew my friends and family wouldn’t mind. And I went for it!

No one was surprised that it was Disney themed. I was the kid who wore out the cassettes of the soundtracks, waited anxiously for the VHS copies of the latest movie to watch the preview for the next movie, and for a while in middle school I kept a scrapbook of all the newspaper clippings about the latest Disney animated movie.

Creating the foods and material for the blog is fun, and something I want to share. I love to cook, to plan out meals, and enjoy it with friends and family.

So pull up a chair and stay awhile. If you’re really good, I might even let you lick the beaters. 🙂
