So the big game is coming and every weekend I like to prepare yummy snacks to enjoy while its on. Our family loves to watch football, so gathering around the TV is my favorite time for us all to bond and spend time together. As much as I like to put out the classics like chicken wings, mini sandwiches and pizza, another family favorite is when I make Queso For All with Velveeta Cheese and Ro*Tel tomatoes.

Its a zesty, creamy mix and the flavor fuses perfectly together like peanut butter and jelly. When paired with corn chips, it makes for the perfect Sunday afternoon game time snack that can be passed around to the whole family. It doesnt stop there either – try roasting some cut up potatoes and smothering them in cheesy goodness for a delicious dinner side. Making Velveeta / Ro*Tel queso dip is so easy, anybody can do it. All you need are the 2 ingredients and a saucepan to melt it in. I start by melting the cheese, and I like to cube it up so it melts evenly.

Once you have a nice consistency, then I add an entire can of un-drained Ro*Tel tomatoes and mix it in. I continue to stir and keep it on a low heat for an extra few minutes until its perfectly creamy…. And serve!

While game time is my favorite time to make this creamy delicious queso dip, I don’t limit myself. After all, football season only lasts a few months! I like to also make this for social gatherings, family barbeques in the summer and birthday parties. I guarantee that this will be a crowd pleaser for even your most discerning guests!

I’m here again sharing yet another yummy game time dip that’s a perfect pair for chicken wings. Wings are a great finger food, and easy to serve – especially if you’re like me and pick up a bucket of Deli Wings from Walmart!

I couldn’t make up my mind in the store, so I decided to get the big pick 3 bucket and filled it with General Tso boneless wings, hot wings and buffalo wings.

Lately I’ve been craving spicy food, so the idea of having buffalo wings got me excited. Of course, you can’t have buffalo wings without blue cheese dip (that’s like french fries without ketchup) – I decided to make my own fresh recipe.

Here’s my ingredients:

  • 1 pkg of blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup of mayonaise
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tb of milk
  • 3/4 tsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 3/4 tsp of fresh ground pepper

In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and blend it until its creamy-smooth. Spoon out into a serving dish and enjoy with your wings! Don’t forget to serve it with carrots and celery sticks!

Now that was all about the buffalo wings… My other favorite was the General Tso’s boneless wings which were awesome! If you are a fan of Chinese food, this one is definitely for you. I enjoyed these ones all by themselves… No extra sauce necessary!

It didn’t take very long for these to be polished off!

Western Union helps families stay close to loved ones when they are so far away

As most of you know, I am not from Texas or the United States. I grew up in Canada until I decided to come to school here and study at the Art Institute. To make a long story short, Not long after I started I met my husband and we’ve been together ever since. I graduated in 2006 and we wed in 2007 and had our firstborn son by 2009.

That sounds all sweet and nice, but there’s another side to it. When I watched this video put out by western union, it touched my heart. As an ex-pat, I knew how every single one of these people in the video felt. I got kinda weepy watching the very last lady from Brazil – take a look for yourself and see what I mean…

Similar to the people in the video, we do a lot of skype to maintain close ties, and JP talks to his nana and nonno as often as possible. Here he is showing my dad all about his video games!

Besides family, there’s plenty of other things that I miss from Canada, and that’s some of the local foods that are only available over there. Because it’s in North America, you can expect to find the same type of things you normally find over here – with a few minor differences.

Canada (specifically Montreal) isn’t really known for a “national” cuisine, and that’s probably because there’s so many different ethnicities all crammed into 1 tiny city. As far as native food is concerned, one of the things I miss the most is poutine.

I know, I know – it’s 100% junk food, but it’s delicious and I miss it! You may have heard of it, because it’s popularity has been spreading in the US, but it’s still pretty difficult to find here in Dallas. It’s basically French fries, cheese curds topped with a savory brown gravy. MmmMmmMmm!

That being said, when I get a craving I must take matters into my own hands, and make it myself. The trouble is, finding the right gravy and the right cheese can be difficult. Luckily for me, I’ve found a local grocery store that sells cheese curds and my mother keeps me in a good supply of poutine sauce mix every time she sends me a care package from home.

So this is what I do – I order a large french fry from any local fast food chain, go home and make the sauce then top with yummy cheese curds and dig in. It’s a small slice of heaven when I’m missing home!
