Giant Gingerbread House & WIAW Favorites


If you are wondering how to make a life-size gingerbread house, you came to the right place:


That’s exactly what went into the gingerbread house on display at the Grand Floridian hotel here in Disney.

So cool. It didn’t even look like food.

My Ghirardelli cookie sundae was real last night though, real good.

Once I have some time to edit the photos from our trip, I will share more of what we have been eating this week in Disney but until then, let’s take a look at some of my favorite What I Ate Wednesdays from the past year!


What We Ate In Philadelphia – I can’t wait to go back to Reading Terminal Market for the truffles and ice cream and giant cookies!


What We Ate At Citifield . Nothing like eating your way through a sporting event via the luxury suite amenities.


What I Ate On My Birthday

My dad’s birthday is in a few days. I normally make a whole dinner and cake from scratch to celebrate but part of me thinks we should go to Cirella’s like we did for my birthday so I can have the shrimp with zucchini marinara again along with the gigantic sundae.

We may need to order two of these cookie brownie sundaes though, I hate sharing even though one sundae serves six.

What We Ate – My Son’s Birthday

I really know how to do birthdays, especially when it comes to my son’s special day. So many good eats in this post including the custom Cold Stone Creamery cake.

What I Ate In Florida

Otherwise known as the weekend where I had the best chocolate fudge cake ever and still think about it even though I had four slices and it made me slightly sick on the plane ride home.
