Homemade Corn Chowder

I have been making a copycat recipe of the corn chowder they serve at Mimi’s Cafe in California for years.  Years.  I have only recently started adding and changing some things with the recipe, and I’m sharing the new and improved version of the soup today. Mimi’s Cafe is a chain, and there is one… Continue reading Homemade Corn Chowder

Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse Beignets

I’ve gotta tell you, nothing makes me happier than adding a gem to my Disneyland recipe collection. It’s not even debatable that one of the tastiest treats at Disneyland is the Mickey Mouse shaped beignets served at Cafe Orleans and the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square. In fact, the Disney Food Blog, (my… Continue reading Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse Beignets

Mimi’s Cafe Carrot Muffins

If you read this blog often, you know that my husband and I are Disneyland regulars.  We take a trip down from Seattle at least once every other year and spent about a week there with the kids.  It is my happy place and my husband has finally come around to loving it too.  He… Continue reading Mimi’s Cafe Carrot Muffins

Baked Churros – Same Taste, Less Guilt

It’s no secret to anybody who knows me that I love Disneyland.  It is my happiest place.  I love that the second I enter through the tunnel, I no longer feel like a 34 year old; I feel like a 7 year old.  Well, now I have three kids, so maybe I’ve aged to like… Continue reading Baked Churros – Same Taste, Less Guilt


Goofy’s Kitchen’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza

One of my favorite things to do when I am in Disneyland is to have brunch at Goofy’s Kitchen.  It is a buffet-style character breakfast, meaning Disney characters walk around and come up to your table while you are eating and pose for photos with you.  I will admit without shame that I ate there… Continue reading Goofy’s Kitchen’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Pizza
