    Instant Pot Taco Rice

    September 19, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Weeknights are always a busy time to try and get dinner on the table. I love using my Instant Pot during the week to create quick and easy dinners that taste delicious. I have become obsessed with my Instant Pot and make everything in it from rice, to hard boiled eggs to Sunday Roasts. I never have much luck cooking rice on the stove top but with my Instant Pot it comes out perfect every single time. Truth be told, we got the Instant Pot fro Christmas one year and I didn’t start using it right away because I was…

    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…

Even though Mister Tipsy and I do not have children, I always feel that Back to School is a great time to start healthier habits. We are not the kind of couple that does well with major changes and that by making smaller changes to our healthy habits, it end up being more effective and makes a bigger…

  • Easy Al Pastor Tacos

    August 8, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    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…

    Seven Layer Salad

    July 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been in a salad state of mind for the last few weeks. I haven’t been home much to have access to my little grill and I just can’t bring myself to heat up the house with a hot stove or oven. This is why I have been making mostly no cook salads for dinner like this Seven Layer Salad I made today for dinner. This Seven Layer Salad is a salad I used to have to make when I worked in the deli of a local grocery store. This was one of the most popular recipes we sold…

    Crispy Bbq Pork Chops

    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 Grilled Chicken Sandwich

    July 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been resurrecting a lot of classic recipes that I find in my Grandma’s cookbooks and giving them a modern day makeover. I came up with this recipe for an Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich using a classic kitchen hack where you marinate your chicken breasts in Zesty Italian Salad Dressing. This Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich reminds me of a play on a Vietnamese Bahn Mi Sandwich. A Bahn Mi Sandwich is a typical Vietnamese Sandwich on a French Baguette and stuffed with marinated meats, cucumbers, herbs and pickled veggies.  Last Sunday we were having Mister Tipsy’s Dad over for…
