Judy's Taco Salad: Cinco de Mayo Recipe

Judy's Taco Salad: Cinco de Mayo Recipe

Judy is my sister-in-law and many years ago she shared this recipe for taco salad that instantly became a family favourite.  Salads were not something that my three boys loved when they were younger, but this one was often requested. Even as adults they will request this salad for family dinners when it their turn to choose the family dinner menu. 

The "Perfect" Pesto Recipe

The "Perfect" Pesto Recipe

The Watson family loves this pesto sauce! It is so easy to make and tastes great with cheese and crackers or on a main course. It’s also a great accompaniment to a charcuterie board. Easily made, it can be put together days ahead of time and it keeps in the freezer well. We especially like it with chicken and pasta. Mmm…Yummy!

My sister-in-law, Judy, has the best sugary treat recipes of anyone I know!  Many years ago she shared this recipe, Caramel Popcorn, with our family and we immediately fell in love with it. We have tried buying commercial brands but few, if any, come even close to satisfying one’s taste buds like Judy's original recipe. As you spend time with your family enjoying a movie, a sporting event or a board game, make sure to make the time together extra sweet by breaking out this recipe. Your family will most assuredly appreciate the effort!

Sex In A Pan

Sex In A Pan

Six Layer Dessert, known by some as “Sex In a Pan” because it’s just that darn good, is a Watson family favourite. One of our traditions is to serve this mouth-watering dessert at our football parties. Luckily in Canada, we celebrate two big football events each year: The Grey Cup, the Canadian Football League’s championship game, held in November, and as our family are big National Football League fans, the Super Bowl the first week of February. Both games are a chance for us to enjoy great food, drinks and dessert with family and friends.

Apples and Cinnamon have a special place in the kitchen during the fall season. Here is a yummy, gluten-free, family-favorite recipe that transforms these two incredible ingredients. Funny thing is that everyone who tries this recipe when I make it prefer this adaptation to the regular crisp :)

Pumpkin Pie Dessert Bars

Pumpkin Pie Dessert Bars

October means Thanksgiving in Canada (November for our friends and family in the U.S.), and this year and our family will be gathering around the table to celebrate a year of many blessings. One of my favourite Thanksgiving recipes is for Pumpkin Pie Dessert Bars. A friend shared made these many years ago for a Thanksgiving staff luncheon. They were so delicious we were all asking for the recipe. 

Healthy Holiday Eating

Healthy Holiday Eating

Holidays are times that we look forward to as it usually means time away from work, often travelling to see interesting places or people, and feasting!  There are specific foods that we look forward to for summer holidays, as well as Christmas and Easter, but this article will focus on Thanksgiving. The origin of this feast as its name implies, comes from giving thanks to God for a bountiful harvest, successful hunting, and by implication, all of the blessings that we enjoy in abundance.
