• Beef Sukiyaki from EPCOT

    May 22, 2018cookwcharacter

    I came across the recipe for this really awesome Sukiyaki on the DisboardsĀ 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

    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…

    We’ve just returned from our trip to Disney World! We were there for 5 nights, and we had a great time. I’m jumping ahead a bit, because I have to tell you about the best meal we had while we were there. All of the meals were excellent, but this one – oh, man was…

  • 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)…

    July 8, 2017cookwcharacter

    Our trip is a little less than a month away! Since that is the case, I’m starting to prep for Disney. Setting things aside that I plan to take, and trying to be more organized and proactive. (it’s good to have goals, right?) We are going this year with my parents, and my in-laws. This…

  • 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…

    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…
