• Beef Sukiyaki from EPCOT

    May 22, 2018cookwcharacter

    I came across the recipe for this really awesome Sukiyaki on the Disboards¬†from the Yakitori House in Japan. The recipe sounded delicious, but I didn’t want to use noodles. Mostly because I already had rice (I buy it in 25 lb bags, since its cheaper that way and we eat it frequently.) With that in…

  • Sanaa-Inspired Instant Pot Butter Chicken!

    January 10, 2018cookwcharacter

    I got the Instant Pot for Christmas, after having broken the previous electric pressure cooker I’d been given before I got to use it fully. I LOVE this thing. I think I’ve used it almost every day since we got home from Christmas! I also really, REALLY wanted to try and recreate the amazing butter…

  • Chocolate Hazelnut Beignet

    While we were in Disney World at the beginning of August, we took some time to stop at the Boulangerie Patisserie in France. While I was there, I got a Hazelnut Chocolate Beignet. I’d show you a picture… but I ate it too fast. If I hadn’t been so hot, I might have gone back…

  • A Ratatouille Remy Would Be Proud Of!

    July 14, 2017cookwcharacter

    Ever since I watched Ratatouille, I’ve been planning to try making my own Ratatouille. The movie version just looks so good, and so fancy, that I had to try it. Since we had eggplant ripening on the vine outside, I decided this week was going to be the time! The important thing (in my opinion)…

  • Vanilla Bean Macarons with Dark Chocolate Amaretto Ganache Filling

    May 26, 2017cookwcharacter

    This recipe can be a little involved, but these cookies are worth it. I’ve seen them at many places – one of which is the France pavilion at EPCOT. Since I’m not going to be there for awhile, I decided I couldn’t wait, and wanted to make them at home. They’re light, delicate, and packed…

    This is the last of the recipes I’m posting from the Moana dinner and movie party – but don’t think its the “least” of them! This is a great recipe, and is one of the ones given to my mom when we asked on our first trip ever. We’ve made this MANY times over the…

    Remember how I told you we had a Moana dinner and movie party, and the food was themed around Polynesia? These cookies were our dessert. I came up with the recipe from the ground up, and I’ve been tweaking them for awhile. This recipe is easy, delicious, and you’ll never make enough! They are also…

    This past weekend, we had friends over for a Moana dinner and a movie party. Like any good party (or at least the ones at our house) there was a lot of fabulous food! We tried to keep with a Polynesian theme for all the dishes, and it was a hit! We started with an…
