"Wish Now" Theme from "Star Darlings" | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I love having boys.  I couldn't imagine anything else.  However, there are times I wish I had a daughter.  It's times like this.  Earlier this month, Walt Disney Records released the single "Wish Now," the theme from original property "Star Darlings." This series delivers a great message for young girls!  The lyrics to the song "Wish Now" were co-written by Shana Muldoon Zappa and Ahmet Zappa.  This is the first digital single form the original property "Star Darlings."  A second track will be released in January and will be followed by a 5-song EP in Spring 2016.

Italian Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake | A Disney Mom's Thoughts


Every fall, my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic hosts a Virtual Food & Wine Festival.  This year, she is unable to host, but I'm still participating!  I love the idea of sharing recipes from around the world.  Several years ago I shared my great grandmother's spaghetti sauce recipe from Italy.  This year, I found a great recipe from the 2004 Epcot Food & Wine Festival on All Ears.  It's a flourless chocolate & hazelnut cake recipe from Piemonte, Italy!
