My Review :
This one was so much fun to review because it involved me getting to try out a new and fun recipe!
I’m not going to lie, I live vicariously through anyone who spends a second of time at Disney World, and even though I have only been there 2 times in my life, I’m becoming slightly obsessed with it as I get older. 🤷♀️
So when I saw that this title was up for review, I had to try and get it. Luckily for me, I was picked!
The recipe that I tried was Carnitas Tacos from Hollywood Land at Disney’s California Adventure.
It was so good that my husband told me that I need to add it to my regular menu rotation.
Now, I did tweak the toppings simply because I’m not a huge fan of cabbage, so I served them with limes, onion and cilantro – but the seasoning of the meat is spot on.
Combined with homemade corn tortillas and Spanish rice – this meal was such a home run. I will definitely make again.
As for the rest of the book – there are a lot of the same recipes that you see on social media and I can’t wait to give those a try too. Dole Whip anyone?!
If you too live through the photos you see on social media, I’d recommend this book to bring the parks a little bit closer to home.
