The Fourth of July has always been one of our favorite holidays. We camp out for hours to get a good view at the parade, the kids love seeing the armory roll thru, seeing all the fire engines and first responders, the big family cookout, and it wouldn’t be America’s birthday without the fireworks!

Orange Chicken

Inspired by Epcot’s China Pavilion, we made Orange Chicken and Rice for our World Showcase meal. I am not a fan of frying, but this is a new family favorite! It was DELICIOUS! Not overly sweet like most recipes you’ll find, it had the perfect about of sweet and spice. It would be a great […]

Norwegian Meatballs

Hallo! Inspired by Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at Epcot’s Norway pavilion, we made the ‘Tradisjonell Kj√łttkake‘ meal for our visit there.

Biergarten Skillet Dinner

One of our favorite stops in the World Showcase is Germany’s Biergarten! Not only do they have the best Oktoberfest smorgasbord, there’s nothing better than a Hefeweizen on a hot day. This recipe isn’t on Epcot’s menu, but I really didn’t think you would want a recipe for braunschweiger. Fun fact: I love that stuff, […]

Ratatouille
