• Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire

    April 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    My Aunt has been talking about this recipe for Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire for years. It was the first recipe she made for my Uncle on their one year wedding anniversary.  It has now been over 40 years and it is still a recipe that she makes to this day.  I was visiting for a few days and I asked her to show me how she makes this Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire and she did. Boy was it delicious. It is a very simple recipe that requires minimal ingredients, it has such great flavor. It is perfect for special occasions but it…

    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…

  • Gyro Meatballs

    Mr. Tipsy has Crohn’s disease and a couple of times a year he does a health reset and tries as hard as possible to reduce carbs/sugar and all that other stuff that is supposedly not great for you. We are by no means super strict Keto crazy but I do try to adjust recipes to meet his needs. Because of his line of work, Mr. Tipsy often has to eat dinner on the go and meatballs are one of his favorite things to take for lunch because they are easy for him to heat and eat. Living in Chicago we…

  • Shredded Chicken Taco Meat

    January 14, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best ones. This Shredded Chicken Taco recipe is one I have always made in my crockpot and it is a quick and easy recipe for busy weeknights. It is also perfect for parties and you need to cook for a crowd. While it works perfectly in the crockpot I recently started making it in my Instant Pot on the days I forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. I have made this shredded chicken taco recipe from frozen chicken thighs and it also works really well. You will need a…

  • Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

    January 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I am a collector of vintage cookbooks and recipe binders. Some of my favorites are the church cookbooks that are a collection of old recipes collected from the members and printed and sold as a fundraiser. One recipe that I kept seeing repeated from these cookbooks was a Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole. Something about it intrigued me. After reading through the many recipes for this classic dish, I decided to put my own spin on it. This Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole can be assembled ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal, it is great for a party or potluck…

  • Easy Vodka Sauce

    December 28, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is a recipe I have been making for years. When I had it for the first time I was sure that it was some overly complicated, intricate recipe because it was so absolutely delicious. When I asked the original recipe creator for the recipe I couldn’t believe that it was actually a really Easy Vodka Sauce recipe. I made some adjustments over the years and  I think now that it is practically perfect. I have to be honest, this Vodka Sauce is not healthy, what makes it delicious is lots of butter, cream and cheese. It is definitely a…

  • Roast Beef Sandwiches

    December 12, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have been using my Instant Pot more often for two reasons. One, my Aunt recently purchased one and I know she will be looking for recipes and two, the busier I get with Tipsy, the less time I have. I love making slow cooked meats and soups and the Instant Pot makes this possible on even the busiest of days. We were having a taste for Roast Beef Sandwiches and when I stopped at my local butcher recently, they had a beautiful rump roast on sale. This Rump Roast can be a main course served with mashed potatoes and…
