The Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival continues through July 5, and the food is fabulous … and the flowers are beautiful, too! Hard to pick favorites, but right now, I am craving these delicious bites from the Festival.

In addition to the Mickey-shaped scrambled eggs and waffle, the kids’ skillet also comes with:
- Country potatoes
- Hickory-smoked bacon

People who know me know I am very particular about my bread pudding. I like a nice creamy center with plenty of sauce – and hold the raisins, please! So, when I stopped by Banana Cabana Pool Bar at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, I just had to try the Pineapple-Coconut Bread Pudding with caramel sauce and ice cream. My kind of bread pudding – delicious!
