Chicken Divan Casserole

This classic casserole is one of my favorites to make all year long on busy family nights. It couldn't be easier to throw together and it's a delicious hearty meal. I substituted a few of the traditional ingredients for low fat ones to cut some of the fat and calories.

Ava's Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

It has been a fun Disney Week here on the blog and as it's coming to an end I want to share this fun Minnie Mouse themed party I hosted for my daughter Ava. She loves Minnie Mouse and we went all out with fun themed food, decorations, crafts, and games! 
I had these invites custom made on Etsy by Jubilee Creations.
I like to send digital invites and print a few for family and framing.
How was this almost 3 years ago? I miss my little lady being so tiny but I am excited that she is growing up and learning so much too!
Flashback to my little Minnie Mouse turning 2!
It's a Birthday Bowtique Party!

Croque Monsieur Sandwich | Disney's Be Our Guest Copycat Recipe

It's Disney Week here on the blog and today I wanted to share one of my favorite sandwich recipes with y'all, that just so happens to be served at Disney World. Croque Monsieur 
is a decadent French style grilled or baked ham and cheese sandwich that is served at Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom.
You can make this sandwich open faced and baked or as a traditional grilled sandwich the way Disney does. It usually comes with a rich bechamel sauce on top but for an easy shortcut I made a spread with sour cream and Dijon mustard like the restaurant serves. I hope you enjoy this recipe and my pictures from the amazing Be Our Guest castle restaurant!
 It really is one of my favorite restaurants EVER.
Lots of menu choices for lunch. 
Tip- Use the Disney App to get a dining reservation. Dinner is hard to get but lunch you can usually score a reservations 20-30 days ahead.

Grilled Turkey Legs #CookoutWeek

Today I used a fantastic grilling product called Smokin-O's to add a delicious wood-fired flavor to my Grilled Turkey Legs. These turkey legs are easy to grill and fun to eat. They are one of my favorite festival and amusement park meals, so I knew I wanted to make them at home this summer for my whole family!
Cookout Week is in full swing and I am loving all the delicious summertime recipes my fellow bloggers and I are sharing! Scroll down to see all the recipes shared today. 
 Get real wood-fired flavor from your gas grill with Smokin-O's
Their secret recipe of 100% real wood and spices contains no hidden chemicals or binders (unlike many charcoals).
 Smokin-O's are available in three flavors- Orignal, Mesquite, and Applewood. Best of all, grilling with Smokin-O's is super-easy and there's no soaking, no fuss, no mess and no wait.
