• Boma Banana Bread

    August 13, 2018cookwcharacter

    I have to tell you, when I made this bread, I had no idea what I was getting into. When I went to Boma, I didn’t go for breakfast, I was there for dinner and was far to distracted by all the other items on the buffet to see if there was banana bread! That…

  • ‘Ohana – Disney Dining Review

    December 5, 2017cookwcharacter

    First, I’ve been to ‘Ohana before on two other Disney trips – the first time I ever went, many years ago, and then later when I went with a friend for a few days to the Mouse. Every time, its been delicious. This time was no exception. The worst part of our meal was that…

  • Chocolate Hazelnut Beignet

    September 2, 2017cookwcharacter

    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)…

  • 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…

  • ‘Ohana Grilled Chicken

    May 22, 2017cookwcharacter

    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…

  • Maui’s Wayfinder Sunrise

    April 21, 2017cookwcharacter

    Maui’s Wayfinder Sunrise is a tasty tropical treat that is perfect for those warm summer evenings coming our way (and remembering them during the cold winter nights!). Inspired by Disney’s Moana, this is a really simple recipe. You can leave it virgin, add a shot of rum, serve on its own, or make it into…

  • 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…
