Disney Festivals Cookbook!

I like to cook but I love to eat! One of my favorite times to go to the parks is when they host the food festivals, so when Disney announced their new cookbook filled with festival recipe I knew I had to buy it immediately! In the book there are 50 recipes from 6 different festivals which have been put together by Pam Brandon and the Disney Chefs.

When I got the book in my hands the first recipe I looked for was the Jalapeño Popper Mac and Cheese with Bacon because my mom and I absolutely fell in love with and honestly wished we would have went back for more. Thankfully that recipe was in the book and now I get to attempt to make it as good and as magical as Disney!

Aside from having the book of magic, as I like to call it I am super stoked to test out all these recipes at home. For Thanksgiving and for Christmas I will be using some of these delicious recipes and hopefully if I can get a series with my mom and grandma where we cook a new recipe every Sunday together because I think it would be amazing and fun. Would you buy a Disney cookbook? If so, what one?

  • Blueberry compote filling and cookie crumbles surrounded with whipped cream and topped mint with black sugar turning the cake into a jack-o-lantern.

    • A returning specialty of the holiday season. A chocolate cake with a hazelnut frosting and a delicious and spooky frosting.
