  • 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…

    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. I got creative and did a little food research and came up with what I think is a pretty solid representation of the dish. All you need are a few simple ingredients. I got…

  • 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…

    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…

  • Learning To Cook With Tipsy ~ Technique of the Week ~ Macerating

    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…
