Strawberry Soup Recipe from Disney’s Grand Floridian

strawberry soup


I have wanted to try this soup forever, but haven’t had the chance.  I’ll be staying at the Grand Floridian Resort in about a month for the Food Blogger Forum Conference.  But I’m not sure I’ll have a chance to eat at 1900 Park Fare, where they serve this soup.

To be fair, I did not use the exact recipe from the Grand Floridian.  Here’s the original:

Strawberry Soup-1


The strawberries I used were sweetened, so I know our soup was much sweeter than the original.  And I decided to lighten it up a bit by subbing out the heavy cream.  I also used light sour cream in place of the regular and the yogurt.  I would have used plain yogurt instead, but I was out.  Use what you’ve got!

Before we get to the recipe, I want to highlight one of the site sponsors, The Magic for Less.

Hawaiian BBQ Sandwiches (inspired by Earl of Sandwich)

When we were in Disney World a few weeks ago, we had dinner one night at the Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney.  My oldest son and I shared a Hawaiian BBQ Sandwich.

It’s stacked with thinly sliced ham, grilled chicken, Swiss cheese, pineapple and barbeque sauce.  Amazing!

7 Disney World Recipes to Make at Home

Summer is here and so are vacations!

We’re taking off for Disney World this week, so I thought I’d share 7 of my favorite Disney recipes to make at home.  Some of them are adapted from actual Disney recipes and some are inspired by foods Disney serves.  Either way, they are all delicious!

Nutella and Fruit Topped Waffles from Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom

 Dole Whip Float from Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom

Dad’s Brownie Sundae – From 50s Prime Time Diner in Hollywood Studios

Boardwalk Brownies from Boardwalk Bakery

50s Prime Time Meatloaf from 50s Prime Time Cafe in Hollywood Studios

Cottage Pie from Rose and Crown in EPCOT

Spicy African Pulled Beef Sandwiches from Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom

Nutella and Fruit Topped Waffles

Oh my goodness.  This is beyond amazing.

Nutella slathered over malt waffles and piled high with bananas, blueberries and strawberries.  Wow!

A while back I saw a post on the Disney Food Blog about new waffle sandwiches available at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom.  I’ve vowed that we will try these on our next trip.  But I couldn’t wait that long.  I decided to make them at home.

I used malted milk powder in the waffles to make them more like Magic Kingdom waffles.  I don’t own a Belgian waffle maker, but if you have one, you’ll want to use it for this recipe.   I think thicker waffles might make them easier to fold into a sandwich.  We ate them on a plate, with a fork.

Dad’s Brownie Sundae from the 50s Prime Time Cafe Disney World

It’s Friday.  Time to have some fun.  The kids loved making these brownie sundae’s, inspired by the Dad’s Sundaes served at the 50s Prime Time Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Grab the fixings from the store and sweeten up your Friday night.  Here’s what you’ll need: [Read more…]

Cottage Pie


While browsing through Disney recipes at a few weeks ago, I discovered this gem.  A lot of the Disney recipes are complicated and not something that you’d want to create in your kitchen on an ordinary week night.  But this recipe from the Rose and Crown restaurant in England in EPCOT stands out from the crowd.  It has week night supper written all over it, especially after a few adaptations.  Put on Illuminations music, pretend you’ve snagged a water front table at Rose and Crown for the excellent fireworks show and eat up.  Tuesday night doesn’t get any better 😉

Boardwalk Brownies


These are what happens when a desire to visit Disney World collides with a chocolate craving on a plain old Sunday afternoon.  I found the recipe while buzzing around , a fantastic resource for planning or dreaming about a Disney trip.  These brownies are made at the Boardwalk Bakery.  I’ve never eaten the real deal, so I can’t tell you how close they come, but I can tell you they were fudgy, chocolatey and they didn’t last long.

50s Prime Time Meatloaf


The other day while I was thinking about Disney World, I started looking through recipes on AllEars.Net.  Deb has an excellent collection of recipes for foods that are served in various WDW restaurants.  I made note of several that I want to try, including this meatloaf which is served at the 50s Prime Time Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  The meatloaf was easy to make, flavorful and moist.  As a bonus, it made so much I turned it into two loaves and froze one for another time.

Dole Whip Float


I’ve had Walt Disney World on my mind the last few days.  We’ve gotten to vacation there several times in August or September and I must feel that I should be getting ready to go again.  But it’s not to be this year.  Last night I wanted a little taste of the Magic Kingdom.  There is a place called Aloha Isle in Adventureland that has the best snack.  It’s called a Dole Whip Float.
