• Don’t Forget Mousekeeping!

    June 23, 2017cookwcharacter

    I’m going to take a brief moment today to remind you of one of the most important Cast Members at Disney – and one of the ones you don’t often actually see or think hard about – Mousekeeping! Without Mousekeepers, the resorts would be a mess. Think about it – they come in, clean up…

  • Margarita Cupcakes inspired by EPCOT

    June 16, 2017cookwcharacter

    I have a confession to make before I begin – I don’t actually like Margaritas. I know, I know. Sounds unbelievable, but it’s true. I was hoping that if I made it into a baked good, I’d like it better. And I’d rather eat these than drink a margarita, so I suppose I achieved the…

  • Vanilla Bean Macarons with Dark Chocolate Amaretto Ganache Filling

    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 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…

  • Louis’ Favorite Chicken Gumbo – Princess and the Frog Inspired Dinner!

    April 19, 2017cookwcharacter

    After watching The Princess and the Frog the other night, I had the urge to try to make something more like what Tiana would cook in her restaurant. I ruled out beignets (at least this time) because I didn’t have the time, and while I love a good pastry, I don’t need to eat a…

  • 10 Ways to Deal with the Heat at Disney World

    March 28, 2017cookwcharacter

    I am a teacher. My parents are teachers. As such, we have always had to schedule any trips to Disney around school vacations. Because of this, we’ve always gone in August. Now, I’m sure you know that Orlando in August is a sauna, to put it mildly. I have always had issues with the heat,…
