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 Kjøttkake‘ meal for our visit there. The rich flavors of the meatballs, the creamy sauce, and lingonberry sauce is the perfect comfort food! I have to admit, the lingonberry sauce frightened me a little bit, I’m not a fan of […]

Apple Strudel

The Biergarten German Buffet at Epcot’s German pavilion wouldn’t be complete without Apple Strudel! It’s sweet, delicious, and perfect all year round. It makes two strudels, so you can eat one and share one with a friend. Or not, it’s totally up to you. The rum raisins are optional too, I love the added flavor […]

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, […]

Miso Soup

Eating around the World Showcase at home has been delicious! How have I gone 33 years without trying this soup?! It’s simple, quick, and perfect way to warm up on a cool evening. I paired it with a Violet Sake and made one of Epcot’s Flower and Garden favorites – Frushi for dessert. The serving […]

Ratatouille

Inspired by the France Pavilion and movie Ratatouille, we made… Ratatouille! Believe it or not, it was much easier, and delicious, than I thought it would be! It help’s that we love roasted veggies, but the sauce really took it up a notch. I suggest making this as a side instead of the main dish […]

Homemade Mickey Pretzels

So basically, I want to make these every darn day. They are so good and pretty easy to make too. The rolling and forming the pretzels were the hardest part, but by your third or fourth try, you’ll find your groove. I tried several different ways for folding it, but I wrote down what I […]

Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup

I’m missing the World Showcase more than normal right now, so I thought it would be fun to put a few recipes together and bring back some of the flavors and magic of the park. Now, the question is… do you go left towards Mexico or go right towards Canada when you get there? We […]

Headless Horseman – Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Shake

I know I’ve been sharing lots of Pumpkin and Chocolate recipes lately, but I knew I had to recreate one more after trying the Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Chocolate Shake at Epcot’s Food and Wine. This chocolatey drink was so refreshing walking around the World’s Showcase. It reminded me of the dark and sinister Headless […]

Frushi

Since Big Hero 6 (available on Amazon)was set in San Fransokyo, I thought this would be the perfect movie inspired dish! Every year Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival begins and pictures start popping up with Frushi, my mouth waters!  Since I haven’t been able to travel to the festival, I decided to make my own! […]

Saludos Amigos and The Three Callaberos Movie Night! Double Feature!

“José Carioca: Have you been to Baía, Donald? Donald Duck: No. José Carioca: Well, let’s go!” The Three Callaberos was always one of my favorites as a kid and I may have been a bit excited to share it with Charlie Beth and Gideon! I knew they would be swept away with the vibrant colors, […]
