  • ‘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…

  • “Fried” Dill Pickles – only without the frying

    April 15, 2017cookwcharacter

    I’m going to let you all in on a secret – I’ve got a serious pickle problem. That’s not really a big secret if you’ve actually met me, but it will explain the plethora of pickle jars that exist in my house. And my annual search for the best homemade pickle recipe for canning. I’ve…
