    Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Cream Sauce

    September 10, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I love Czech bread dumplings and I crave a pork roast served with them and lots of delicious gravy. I buy my Czech bread dumplings frozen from a company called Chateau Dumplings. They sell their dumplings in a lot of grocery stores and online. You can find more information about where they are sold and how to order by Clicking Here. If you aren’t familiar Czech bread dumplings are like really soft bread that absorbs the meat juices and gravy without getting soggy. They basically were invented to absorb all the good meat sauces and allow you to eat it…

    I don’t think I have ever met a person who doesn’t like tacos. I personally could eat tacos every single day of the week. I am lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with a taco cart on every corner and a Mexican restaurant every two steps. In fact, I once did a taco crawl in my neighborhood and tried an incredible amount of tacos. You can read that blog post here A Taco Tour of Rogers Park. I have yet to meet a taco I didn’t like. One of my most favorite types of taco is Al Pastor. I…

    Crispy Bbq Pork Chops

    July 16, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    People constantly ask me how I am able to make dinner almost every night. I explain that dinner doesn’t have to be an overly complicated endeavor. Everything doesn’t have to be made from scratch and it’s perfectly fine to take some shortcuts in order to feed yourself or your family. One of my favorite short cut recipes are these Crispy Bbq Pork Chops. They are super easy to make, take very little time, make very little mess and they are absolutely delicious. The great thing about this recipe is that it produces a fried chop without the mess of having…

    Asian Meatballs

    April 10, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    This past week I have been in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona visiting my Aunt and Uncle.  It been an annual trip these last few years and every time I am here, to thank them, I cook them and their friends a five course meal.  Each year there is a different theme for the menu. This year I decided to go with an Asian theme.  Part of the fun of cooking this special meal is discovering new stores in the area to purchase the ingredients.  This year was no exception. I found a spectacular Asian Market in Phoenix and we spent a…

    This is an old school recipe that I think needs to be brought back in style. It is easy, it is affordable and it is perfect for Fall. I can’t think of many people who wouldn’t love a savory dish of Fried Pork Chops with Apples and Onions. I anticipated that this recipe would take me a lot longer than it did. In fact, I think these Fried Pork Chops with Apples and Onions were on my table from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. You will need a few ingredients for this recipe, but most you should…

Just last weekend I watched twenty kids at the house while prepping for a brunch for 55 guests they were hosting on Sunday. Needless to say, this weekend I am…

  • Oven Bbq Ribs

    September 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Fair warning, these Oven Bbq Ribs are not your typical grilled or smoked ribs. These Oven Bbq Ribs are made inside the house,  in the oven. They are just as, if not more, delicious than anything coming from the grill or smoker. These Oven Bbq Ribs are one of the first things my Mom, Original Tipsy, taught me to cook. I made these Oven Bbq Ribs for my high school boyfriend when we were about sixteen years old and after he got a taste it was hard to shake him even years later. These Oven Bbq Ribs are THAT good.…
