    Who is ready for some football? Frankly I could care less about watching anything to do with sports but I do love football season for the food. Mister Tipsy loves to sit around on Sunday and watch his games and snack. This works out because I love to feed him. I was thinking of something different to make for game day and I foraged for ingredients in my pantry and fridge and came up with these fantastic Bacon Bbq Potato Chip Nachos. I have to warn you, they are super addicting. Since I have made these Bacon Bbq Potato Chip…

    Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs

    August 15, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Before I get into this recipe I have to warn you that these are addicting.  Once you make these Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs, your friends and family are going to ask you to make them all the time. What I love about these Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs is that you can serve them as a build your own appetizer or dress them up for your guests with all the fixings. This recipe is simple to make but needs to be made right when you want to serve it. I did make these and reheated some the next day…

    Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups

    Summer weather has arrived in the Midwest, at least some days it actually feels like Summer. For Mister Tipsy and Me, this means beach days, and lots of time sitting on our deck. For others it means feeding their kids all day long. Summer is a great time to keep easy to grab and eat snacks and meals on hand. These Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups are just one of many easy to make, and easy to eat recipes I always have in my fridge in the Summer months. What I love about these Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups is how versatile…

    Party Dip

    June 1, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Last week when I was at the lake house our friend mentioned snacking on some dried beef. While I would never probably buy the beef just to snack on, it did trigger a memory of a recipe I saw in my Grandma’s cookbook of a party dip that was popular in the 1960’s. I personally am a big fan of party dip. In fact, one of my favorite Aunts always has some kind of homemade dip in her fridge and I love going there. It is such a great snack to eat with veggies or crackers and perfect for busy…

    Asian Meatballs

    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…

  • French Onion Soup Bites

    December 11, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I was catering an appetizer themed party this past Saturday and was trying to come up with new ideas for appetizers. As a brand ambassador for Chateau Foods I happen to have an endless supply of dumplings in my freezer and was brainstorming ways to work them into this menu. I saw someone making French Onion Soup over on Instagram and decided to find a way to combine the two. It took me a couple trials to get the recipe for these French Onion Soup Bites perfect, but once I got it right I knew I had to share it…
