  • The Perfect Sandwich ~A Tipsy Tuesday Tip~

    May 7, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have to admit, I am a sandwich snob. I believe it all started when I worked in the deli of my local grocery store.  I was in charge of making the catering trays and I took pride in the mini sandwiches I usually had to make. One day I made a sandwich for an employee and word spread about how good it was and soon, the lines were so long at the deli during lunch time that my department manager put a stop to my sandwich making days. I’ve had a couple dabbles into the grocery business in my…

  • A Bowl Full of Hygge ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    July 31, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Often times I make things way too complicated when I cook. I forget about the simple dishes that warm your belly and your soul. I recently re-joined the world of Pinterest and was inspired by so many of the comfort food recipes I was seeing pinned on the site. I was reminded of  this delicious broth I used to make that is perfect for any time of the year. It is a dish that you can make in your slow cooker if you don’t have a lot of time or can simmer away on your stove on a weekend when…

    I love a good Chicken Parmesan dish, but frankly it’s A LOT of messy work to make it. Made the traditional way, it’s definitely not a recipe for a busy work week. So what do you do when you’re craving this dish and don’t want the fuss that comes with making it? You make a Cheater Chicken Parmesan and that is this week’s Tipsy Tuesday Tip.

  • Crack Chicken Noodle Soup ~ The Tipsy Housewife Version

    June 16, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    So this soup recipe has been going around the internet. After seeing it for the tenth time, I decided that I needed to check it out for myself. I knew the kids were into anything soup, so I tested it out on them. I decided to make my version in the instant pot, solely because I had forgotten to buy / defrost chicken for this recipe and cooking frozen chicken is one of the greatest things about the Instant Pot. This recipe called for the following ingredients: Ingredients 1 lb of Chicken Thighs, Boneless, Skinless 6 to 8 Pieces of…

  • Cupcakes, Cocktails and Cooking ~ The Tipsy Weekly Wrap Up

    May 13, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Sundays are supposed to be a day of rest.  I try to embrace this theory and spend the day planning for the week ahead and reflecting on the week that has passed.  I thought it would be fun on Sunday’s to share what my week looked like. I will share recipes for the meals I cooked as well as highlight any fun places I tried out. Sunday I spent a fun day with my family in Wisconsin, celebrating my cousin’s youngest son’s First Holy Communion. It was a fun weekend spent doing what my family does best, eating!  I drive…

    March 22, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Recently I toured the new factory opening of the Home Meal Delivery Service, Home Chef in Bedford Park, Illinois. As part of the tour I was given a week of meals to try at home. We absolutely loved the the meals and what I loved most of all was being inspired to try some cooking techniques that I rarely think of to use to create new dishes. We all get stuck in a culinary rut and even the simplest of food preparation can escape us when we are just trying to get a meal on the table after a long…

  • How To Make The Best Grilled Cheese ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    July 3, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A grilled cheese seems pretty simple to make. That being said I’ve sampled a lot of them and have had some pretty bad ones. To make a perfect one isn’t hard, you just need some good quality ingredients. Last week I was headed Up North for the Fourth of July Holiday and I knew I would be passing through Wisconsin aka America’s Dairyland and that had to stop at my favorite cheese shop to get the most important ingredient of all, the cheese. There are several kinds of cheeses that work well in Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, American, Mozzarella, but I…
