• Salami and Cheddar Beach Snacks

    July 16, 2021thetipsyhousewife

    Salami and Cheddar Beach Snacks Inspiration For years I taught pre school for the Chicago Park District. There was a Grandmother who used to make these for every classroom party. They were so simple, so delicious, didn’t cost a lot of money to make and people went crazy for them. I was meeting a bunch of friends at the beach and I needed to bring a snack and I remembered these mini sandwiches that Grandma made. I whipped up a batch and they turned out to be the BEST thing to eat at the beach, or while swimming. These Salami…

    July 13, 2021thetipsyhousewife

    Meet The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich I watched a cooking show on the food network with my mother where they were making a sandwich similar to this. I love a salty sweet combination. The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich has all the components I love. Great crunch, salty, thinly sliced prosciutto, sweet cantaloupe and peppery arugula. The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich is a great recipe for Summer because it is light, yet filling. It is also very easy to make. There is a full, printable recipe for this sandwich at the end of this post. Few, But Specific Ingredients This recipe requires few ingredients,…

    I want to start by saying that this hardly qualifies as a “recipe”. Since I have made these on my Instagram stories I have gotten so many questions about how I make these cheater Fried Chicken Sliders. I decided it would be easier to write this up as a blog post then to keep having to answer questions about what I buy to make these and how I make them. These Fried Chicken Sliders are am easy lunch or a perfect dinner for a busy day when you don’t have a lot of time to get dinner on the table.…

    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…

    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…
