Disney Cookbook Recipes & Reviews: Princess Aurora's Berried Honey Butter

I've unintentionally started a Disney cookbook (not all pictured here) and recipe collection. I haven't actually dived into and given them the love and attention they deserve... until now! While I don't think I can legally post recipes from the cookbooks (only ingredient list with out quantities), I'll be recreating them and reviewing them to share. I try to link where I can as well. This should be a fun adventure!

First up is a recipe from Disney Recipes by Ira Meyer: Princess Aurora's Berried Honey Butter.

Visiting Hogsmeade

A little Monday morning stroll through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. I'm pretty sure this will be the first of many videos and I have a few ideas for future somewhat different videos as well as photo updates.

For now, visit my youtube channel for larger format viewing or view below.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find My Fangirling

The latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is out and I'm grinning from ear to ear!

It looks so fun and magical! I'm super excited to be going into a movie that is spun off of my favorite book series. There is no expectation of anything happening or knowledge of story lines, and it's a fantastic feeling.

Rise of the Jack O'Lanters - Descanso Gardens 2015

All photos taken by me and my trusty little iphone. SOOOO, they aren't the best. You'll have to go see it for yourself. 

On a super last minute decision, we decided to visit Rise of the Jack O'Lanterns at Descanso Gardens. From my understanding, this year they added more venues and the LA area has two locations. Tickets are super easy to purchase and once you sign up for discounts, it's very affordable. Parking is also free.  We signed up for the last time slot of the night and were let in earlier since it was a slow night.

Halloween Horror Nights 2015

I made every effort to stay spoiler free and post my initial  reactions and after thoughts to the night. So here we go!

We made our yearly trip to HHN a little early this year, which has me off a little bit but we enjoyed ourselves all the same. With all honesty, if you can afford it the front of the line pass it's the way to go as well as getting your pass as soon as you can settle on a date. This year, they offered early entry on our night which we took advantage of. It's the sweet spot between regular park close and HHN open. However, we didn't run down to the lower lots. We stayed in a corral in the main entrance area to view the opening chainsaw chase.
