    October 1, 2022thetipsyhousewife

    German Meatballs In A White Wine Caper Sauce German Meatballs in a white wine caper sauce are the perfect fall comfort food meal. What makes these meatballs German? I am not totally sure. Truth be told I follow these awesome Disney Vloggers on YouTube called The Tim Tracker and I saw them order something similar at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, so I looked up some German meatball recipe and gathered some ideas and came up with this dish. I made this for my family and a group of bird hunting guys staying with us up at our home in…

    Pan Seared Apple Cider and Onion Pork Chops My Grandma loves bone in pork chops and always cooked them, so I grew up loving the taste of a good, bone in chop. A couple of weeks ago I took her out for a pork chop dinner, and I had steak, but the look of her chop had me craving pork chops. I love cooking with the flavors of the season and I had some delicious real apple cider so I decided to make some pan seared chops with delicious sweet onions and this tart apple cider. This recipe is slightly…

    Asian Marinated Pork Chops For years I was a Nanny/Chef for a Taiwanese family on the North Shore of Chicago. They are huge foodies like me. When the Grandma would come to visit she would make amazing meals for us and show me some of the ways she cooked for her family. I am not allowed to share a few of the recipes but one I am allowed to share is how she marinated her pork chops. Asian inspired marinade using soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and Chinese five spice.

    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…

    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.

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…
