Creamy Yam Casserole

Creamy Yam Casserole

My husband and I love yams! Our kids do not enjoy them as much as we do, but this Thanksgiving they fell in love with yams! I have done many Thanksgiving yam casseroles in previous years. I thought the marshmallow topped casserole would be a family favourite but it did not catch the attention of their taste buds like this one did! I hope that you enjoy this new family favourite!

Ghosts In The Graveyard

Ghosts In The Graveyard

As a child I loved playing the game “Ghosts In The Graveyard”. My friends and I could often be found playing this game around our houses. It was always great fun to see who found the ghost and who was able to run back to the safe place the fastest!

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.
