I am so excited to talk to you about something today. You guys know I love Disney books. I especially love Disney books that have recipes in them and I have a great one for you today!
One day I was in a major book retailer looking for new Disney recipes books. I don’t usually find any new ones but sometimes I get lucky. Into the search computer kiosk, I typed in “Disney Food” and BAM a new book appeared. I was pretty excited. It was called “Eat Like Walt – The Wonderful World of Disney Food” by Marcy Carriker Smothers. The computer said it wasn’t going to be available for a few months, so I waited. I told my whole family about how excited I was. Over a year later, it appeared on my doorstep.
I am one of those people who would celebrate Christmas all year round. Seriously I would tinsel the city up if they would let me do it. I would do it anyways, but that would be considered littering. Apparently they frown upon on that. Even shinny glittery littering.
Today we are going to make some Holiday Green Churros from Disneyland. If you have been to the parks recently you know Disney loves themselves a churro. Want a peppermint churro? They got it. Red, green, purple… they have it. I’m sure there is a pink lemonade fruity cereal churro in the parks right now. You get the picture, they love churros. Probably because they are cheap to make and they have an iconic status in the parks. I know some people who think Disneyland is the only place in the world to get one.
Whenever I think of Disneyland I instantly get a smile on my face. This incredibly warm wave of happiness rushes over me. You know the feeling I’m talking about. I imagine strolling down Mainstreet U.S.A, one hand holding my husband’s hand, and the other holding a Mickey Ice Cream Bar. Goodness, I love those things.
Pharrell Williams said “clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth,” and that’s exactly what I feel like when I’m there. Truthfully, honestly, and happy.

Hi Beautiful Bakers!
I have to admit I made these cookies as a late night snack. I didn’t really think much about them. It was just one of those situations where I looked for a recipe I had all the ingredients for. I later heard three separate people say they were the best cookies they have ever had. They also requested when we make chocolate chip cookies in the future, we make these ones.
