Key lime pie.

Characterized by its tart, yet sweet, creamy interior, a golden crumbly crust and whipped cream topping, key lime pie evokes a symphony of emotions and flavors. One bite and you’re transported to a swinging hammock off the coast of Florida. The warm, salty air glistening off your cheeks. A frozen drink with a teeny colored umbrella in your hand.

Wanting a trip to the tropics, I pulled out “Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs,” a cookbook that includes recipes from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California and the Disney Cruise Line. The recipe for Key Lime Pie from Olivia’s Cafe at Disney’s Old Key West Resort needs only four ingredients. In about three hours (mostly waiting for the pie to chill), you can be transported to The Keys, and you barely need to know how to cook. Just stir and turn the oven on.

Tucked away in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland (also available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios), you can find turkey leg wagons that churn out these gorgeous appendages of meat all day long. Having been to Disney World more times than I can count on all of my fingers and toes, I have only indulged in the turkey leg once.

On my honeymoon (the Disneymoon as we like to call it), dear hubby and I purchased our turkey leg and munched on it proudly. There’s something about chomping on the juicy turkey leg as you’re sitting outside The Country Bear Jamboree and watching throngs of people stroll merrily on their way to ride Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
