Remove from heat and let cool 20 minutes. Puree in a blender. Stir puree together with heavy cream, milk and lemon juice. Chill in refrigerator overnight. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Swirl in dark chocolate by pouring small chunks into machine during last 5 minutes of freezing






Vanilla Mascarpone Blueberry Cheesecake

Vanilla Mascarpone Blueberry Cheesecake RecipeThis rich and creamy blueberry vanilla bean cheesecake has a crust made from ground almonds, making it gluten-free. The smooth blend of cream cheese and mascarpone cheese (Italian cream cheese) has a sophisticated flavor that pairs perfectly with a topping of barely-cooked juicy blueberries. One of my favorites ;-) I love cheesecake and the mascarpone makes it so sweet.

 

INGREDIENTS

Crust

  • 2 cups slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Filling

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 4 large eggs

Topping

  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 packages (6 ounces or 1 1/4 cups each) Driscoll's Blueberries

Instructions


Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place almonds and sugar in bowl of a food processor and process until finely ground. Combine almond mixture and butter in a medium bowl. Pack into a 9-inch non-stick springform pan (if pan is not nonstick, brush first with melted butter). Wrap pan with triple layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil, making sure that foil reaches top of side of pan. Bake until lightly golden and set, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Fill a large saucepot with water and bring to a boil over high heat.

Filling

  1. Mix cream cheese, mascarpone, sugar, and scrapings from vanilla bean in an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Add vanilla extract. Add eggs, 1 at a time, on low speed. Pour batter into cooled crust. Place cake pan in a larger roasting pan and fill halfway up side of cake pan with boiling water. Bake 1 hour 30 minutes or until edges are set and center jiggles slightly. Remove roasting pan from oven. Remove cake pan from water bath and let cool completely on a wire rack. Place in refrigerator and chill until cold throughout, 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

Topping

  1. Bring sugar and water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and add blueberries. Cook, stirring frequently, until juices release and thicken and blueberries soften, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly. Spoon blueberry mixture on top of cooled cheesecake.

Disney Cruise Line INfo ~ Port Adventures


Port Adventures – 

by Disney Cruise Line 

Info courtesy of Disney Cruise Line

Port Adventures—shore excursions that have been specially selected by Disney Cruise Line—provide you and your family with the very best recreation, leisure and sightseeing each destination has to offer.

By adding a Port Adventure to your cruise, you'll receive an unforgettable experience ashore along with the peace of mind that comes with having Disney do all the planning. Whether sailing into the horizon, exploring an under the sea world, pillaging with pirates or splashing through the waves on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Port Adventures set the course for a whole new way to add even more magic to your Disney Cruise Line vacation.

Reserve a Port Adventure with Disney Cruise Line—instead of booking an independent tour at the Port—and you can be sure to enjoy a hassle-free excursion with all of the service, quality and fun that you would expect from Disney.

Love this boat


Convenient and Hassle Free
  • Reserve online and have your tickets waiting in your stateroom when you arrive.
  • Avoid getting lost in an unfamiliar port, negotiating fares and dealing with currency exchange.
  • Tour times coincide with the ship's schedule and with other excursions, enabling you to take multiple tours. If the ship arrives late into port, we'll adjust our schedules.
  • If an excursion runs late, the ship will remain in port or we'll arrange transportation to the next port of call at no expense to you. Independently booked tours require you to rejoin the ship at the next port of call—and pay all flight and hotel costs.
  • All excursions are fully refundable for missed ports of call if an itinerary changes.
Service, Quality and Value
  • Adventures include a wide range of activities for all age groups.
  • Expert advice is available onboard with our experienced Port Adventures staff.
  • Enjoy quality experiences at competitive prices plus added value with packages and extras not available elsewhere.
  • The Signature Adventure Collection tours let you customize your time ashore with private vehicles or special experiences unique to Disney Cruise Line.
Port Adventures are operated by independent contractors that are neither agents of, nor supervised or controlled by, Disney Cruise Line. Disney Cruise Line does not maintain their facilities or modes of transportation and is not responsible for any injury or property damage/loss that Guests may incur in connection with a Port Adventure. All Port Adventures are subject to the Disney Cruise Line Cruise Contract. All Port Adventures are subject to availability and/or cancellation based on weather, itinerary changes, and attendance. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult on Port Adventures except for specific "teen only" Port Adventures. All prices are subject to change without notice. Cancellations can be made up to 3 days prior to the cruise departure date. After that time all reservations are final and non-refundable.
My cruise on the Magic

Ranked No. 1 for Families in the World's Best Awards

CELEBRATION, Florida (October 17, 2012) – Disney Cruise Line was recognized as No. 1 in the Large-Ship Cruise Lines for Families category in the Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2012, making it the 4th consecutive year to be ranked in the top spot. In addition to taking top honors for its family cruise experience, this is the 8th consecutive year Disney Cruise Line has been ranked among the top 5 Large-Ship Cruise Lines overall in the Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards readers' survey.

The annual "World's Best" list recognizes the best in travel for hotels, cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, car-rental agencies, spas, and tour operators and safari outfitters. Winners were selected by readers who participated in a survey and rated cruise lines on criteria including cabins, food, service, itineraries and destinations, activities and value. 

 The fleet has grown to 4 ships, enabling Guests to sail to more destinations with Disney than ever before and making it easier than ever for Guests to sail from a port close to their own backyard. 
 
It was one of the best times I have ever had sailing on the Disney Magic. It was a great cruise and the ports of call were beautiful. They included St. Maartin and Castaway Cay ~Disney's private island.  The activities were very special ( the beach, swimming, snorkeling and so much more)  lots of fun for the whole family. Everyone can choose different things on the boat too and that's what made it so relaxing, no arguing. 


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Magical Day !!!!

Valentine's Homemade Fudge Recipe


 VALENTINE'S DAY IS COMING!!
Get your Valentine's something nice, these delicious candies would make a great gift.  
 
Conversation Heart Fudge Candies
Let this microwave fudge do the talking. The recipe's simple enough for older kids to make themselves and yields 64 bite-size pieces--plenty for a classroom party.

What you'll need

  • DARK CHOCOLATE LAYER:
  • 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Dash of salt
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE LAYER:
  • 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Dash of salt

OTHER INGREDIENTS AND MATERIALS:
  • Aluminum foil
  • 64 conversation hearts
  • 64 red foil bonbon cups or mini muffin cups
  • Clear or red cellophane wrap, cut into 64 5- by 6-inch rectangles
  • Sparkly pipe cleaners in red, pink, or silver

Instructions:

  1. Line an 8-inch square pan with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate layer ingredients. Microwave the mixture on high at 30-second intervals until the chocolate is melted (about a minute), stirring at each interval. When the mixture's smooth, use a spatula to spread it evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. In another medium-size microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate layer ingredients. Repeat the melting process as described in step 2, but stir at 20-second intervals, as white chocolate tends to scorch easily. Spread the white chocolate evenly over the dark chocolate layer.
  4. While the fudge is still warm, use a knife to gently score it into 1-inch squares, then put a candy heart on top of each square.
  5. Chill the fudge uncovered in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until firm. Lift the foil to remove the fudge from the pan and place the whole hunk of fudge on a cutting board. Use a large knife (a parent's job) to cut apart the squares, then peel off the foil from the bottom.
  6. Place each fudge square into a foil bonbon cup or mini muffin cup. Center the cup on a cellophane square and wrap it as shown on page 53, using 1-inch pieces of pipe cleaner to secure the ends. Makes 64 bite-size pieces. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for added firmness.

Christmas Time at The Boardwalk Resort


One of the best times of Year to visit Walt Disney World is Christmas Time. My family and I are fortunate enough to live close and visit often but before that this time of year was our favorite. the decorations are amazing to say the least, the Cast Members do amazing job with details. And we love looking for Hidden Mickey's even in the Holiday decorations.

 The Boardwalk resort located near Hollywood Studios is one of my favorites for Spectacular Decorations and Lucky for us it is our DVC Home Resort ~ If you get the chance to go around to some of the deluxe resorts, check out there Holiday Decor..
 That is Donald Duck stuck in the chimney, we got a big laugh out of this display and coming to Disney stirs many feelings of joy, love and humor. Glad they can accomplish all that because there are some days I just need a laugh.

 Love this Giant Gingerbread House and inside they were selling a kit to take home and make your own.

Long Lost Friends & Limited Time Magic at WDW


This week has been incredible. The "Limited Time Magic" that is going on at Walt Disney World has been amazing and fun. If you don't know what I mean here is the 411 : Now happening and continuing through 2013, Limited Time Magic will surprise and delight Guests in FUN and unexpected ways at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. New and exciting entertainment and imaginative events will pop up and then disappear. And this week's surprise was meeting The 3 Little Pigs, Big Bad Wolf and so many more long lost friends..




This week was called LONG LOST FRIENDS WEEK!!   and we were very lucky to be here for it. I got to see a whole bunch of characters, I hadn't seen in years. I remembered them from years ago and was so happy to get some pics with them. One more cool thing that we got were autograph cards with everyone's signature on it. No autographs were given to save on time, the lines were very long and they weren't out there for very long. So these cool cards were given to us and they make great keepsakes.


I got some really great pictures with Robin Hood, Prince John, Sheriff of Nottingham, Friar Tuck, Clarabelle Cow, Horace Horsecollar, Pinocchio, Jiminy Cricket , Geppetto, The 3 Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf. I think the Big Bad Wolf was my favorite - really fun times with them all, but the wolf was so bad, lol.






















Thanks for stopping by and there is so much more Limited Time Magic News Coming!!

Have a Magical Day !!!

Le Cellier ~ New Lunch Menu


If you have never been to the restaurant located in the Canadian Pavilion in Epcot, you are missing out on one of the best dining experiences at Walt Disney World. Here is the just released lunch menu and it looks delicious. I can't wait to try the Spicy Chicken Sausage, Le Cellier House Burger and Maple Creme Brulee. Three new things, I have never tried there before and if it's anything like the other dishes (Cheddar Cheese Soup, Steaks) we had, it will be a delight to the palate.


It was a great experience to eat here and I'm so glad they have now include a lunch menu. This gives you a lot more chances to eat at this very busy, hard to get reservations restaurant. It was about 2 years ago that we took the whole family, all 12 of us to Disney and one of special dinners was eating here. We knew that in our planning of this trip when we listed all the dinner reservations we wanted, that this particular one at Le Cellier Steakhouse had to be made at least 3 months in advance. But knowing what I knew about it, we decided to make it 6 months before. I didn't want to take any chances not getting in and there were a lot of us.

The special dessert, so cool.

It was a great meal, we all ordered steak and it was so delicious, then for dessert the signature Moose Chocolate Cake. This was a hit with the kids, yes it looked just like a moose. Put this dinning experience at the top of your list. Keep in mind it is now (2) dining plan credits, back when I was there it was still one.
