• A Detroit Style Pizza Party

    July 7, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Have you heard of Detroit Style Pizza? I hadn’t until the Food Network reached out to me to ask if they could use one of my Instagram Photos for an upcoming episode of The Kitchen featuring Detroit Style Pizza. Sure I said, why not. I was confused what my photo of Brick Cheese had to do with it, but after watching the episode, and being disappointed they didn’t say my name, I knew what Detroit Style Pizza was all about. I decided I wanted to make it so I started doing some research. There are several unique things when making…

  • 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…

  • Show Of Hands If You Know What Gravy Bread Is

    June 30, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Being from Chicago, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a staple in our diet. I have so many favorites and I like each one for different reasons. Everything makes a difference in the making of  a good beef. The seasoning, the quality of the meat, the spice, the heat and the bread. The main reason why I love Italian Beef’s are because of the gravy soaked bread. There are even some beef stands in Chicago where you can JUST get a gravy bread. They take the Italian bread and soak it in the beef au jus and it is a delicious soggy…

  • “Tough Day” Dinner ~ Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs On The Grill

    June 26, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I grew up in a family where we rarely ate out. We love to cook so if we had a craving for something we made it ourselves at home. Once in a great while, an occasion to eat out would come up and we would go to the local “Greek” Restaurant. I grew up on the Southwest side of Chicago, near Midway Airport and these “Greek” places were on every couple of corners. This is not the kind of Greek Restaurant you are thinking of, there was little, if any, actual Greek Food. The restaurants in our neighborhood were just…

  • “Tough Day” Dinner ~ Sweet Corn Alfredo with Arugula and Potato Dumplings in 15 Minutes or Less

    June 20, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    The expression “Mama said they’ll be days like this” is so true. We all have them. Days that are filled with non stop chores, activities, carpools, events, things breaking and work stuff. Therefore, putting a fancy dinner on the table is sometimes impossible. Most of us resort to ordering in, or dinner from a drive through. I don’t know about you, but take-out and delivery in Chicago has gotten EXPENSIVE. I also can’t stand spending money on mediocre food. As a food blogger I can also get slightly over zealous at times and I can see how SOME of my…
