    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…

    As you may or may not know depending on how long you have followed me, I am a brand ambassador for a local Chicago, 92 year old, family business called Chateau Dumplings.  I work closely with them to develop recipes using their products, photographing them and managing their social media and marketing events. The partnership was a natural one, as I grew up eating these delicious Czech inspired dumplings most of my life. Traditionally, the bread dumplings were served steamed with a Czech recipe for roast pork. You also served gravy and  red cabbage or sauerkraut with this dish. If…

  • 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.

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…

  • Making The Perfect, NO MESS, BLT Sandwich ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    May 22, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have spent many years working in all sorts of kitchens. Because of this I know many tips and cooking hacks. One of the best tips I was taught was how to cook bacon in your oven. The oven method is the BEST way to cook bacon. The oven cooks the bacon easily, there is no grease splatter to clean up, and it is a great way to add  unique seasonings and flavors to your bacon. Plus you can make a TON at once. Perfect for hosting. BLT’s are probably one of our favorite weeknight meals, so I came up…

  • The Perfect Sandwich ~A Tipsy Tuesday Tip~

    May 7, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have to admit, I am a sandwich snob. I believe it all started when I worked in the deli of my local grocery store.  I was in charge of making the catering trays and I took pride in the mini sandwiches I usually had to make.

I’ve had a couple dabbles into the grocery business in my…
