    Submarine Sandwich

    June 27, 2019thetipsyhousewife

      When it comes to cooking, I have some strengths. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to make a pretty great Submarine Sandwich. It is one of the things that Mister Tipsy requests the most. Every year he goes on a guys trip to Florida and he specifically requests that I make this Submarine Sandwich for him and his friends to take on the plane.  The ingredients for this sub are simple, but they are very specific. If I substitute any of the ingredients from what I normally use, it just doesn’t taste the same. I am not…

  • Italian Sausage Sandwich

    June 26, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    It is FINALLY Summer here in the Midwest and in my house it wouldn’t be Summer without a great Italian Sausage Sandwich from the grill. Except of course when you can’t figure out how to put on the new propane tank. I make these sandwiches every year on my grill and wouldn’t you know it, the day I decide to make them, Mister Tipsy isn’t home and I cant figure out how to attach the propane tank. The good news is I was still able to make this Italian Sausage Sandwich on the stove, in my cast iron skillet and…

    White Cheddar Bacon Burgers

    June 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I know that it’s all the rage to put all the toppings you possibly can on a cheeseburger, but when it comes to burgers I think simple is best. I make these White Cheddar Bacon Burgers on the grill when the weather cooperates  and they are always a hit with whomever I make them for. These White Cheddar Bacon Burgers have very few ingredients but the few they do are quality ingredients which is what makes them extra special. The two ingredients that are a MUST are: Good Quality Cheddar Cheese Good Quality Ground Beef I like to buy the…

    Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups

    June 4, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    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…

  • The Ultimate Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

    May 31, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    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. 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…

  • 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…
