• Taco Pie

    October 24, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Food brings comfort to many in difficult situations. It helps people who are suffering by nourishing them and taking a chore off their list when just breathing seems impossible. It helps people who know friends and family that are suffering by giving them something to do in order to try and bring comfort to people they care about in an uncomfortable situation. Recent events in my own life had me thinking and are the reason for this Taco Pie recipe. It seemed like a comforting recipe that was simple, inexpensive, easy to heat up and something that would keep well…

  • Meatballs & Minis

    One of my favorite products to cook with are the Chateau Foods Dumplings. Chateau Dumplings are a traditional Czech dumplings in both bread and potato dumplings. The bread is typically made with a roast pork and served with gravy. The potato dumplings are traditionally large and served with butter and dill. Chateau makes a mini version that I LOVE to keep on hand in the freezer. They are super versatile, and can be eaten on their own.  I like to use them in place of pasta, rice or any of my other typical carb components. I can best describe them…

  • Smoked Sausage & Egg Noodles

    Mr. Tipsy has been suggesting this for dinner for years. It always sounded so weird to me and I couldn’t understand why he kept asking me to make it. I come to find out, after more than a decade together, that this is a dish his Mom used to make for him. His Mom is no longer with us, but her food was a legacy she left us. Before she passed she gave me her cookbook bible, the one you slip all the recipes you cut out of magazines and the ones you ask friends for that are written on…

  • Fried Pork Chops With Apples & Onions

    September 30, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is an old school recipe that I think needs to be brought back in style. It is easy, it is affordable and it is perfect for Fall. I can’t think of many people who wouldn’t love a savory dish of Fried Pork Chops with Apples and Onions. I anticipated that this recipe would take me a lot longer than it did. In fact, I think these Fried Pork Chops with Apples and Onions were on my table from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. You will need a few ingredients for this recipe, but most you should…

  • Crispy Russet Potatoes Fried In bacon Fat

    Bacon Fat Fried Potatoes

    September 27, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This recipe is probably one of my favorites because of how easy it is. I especially hate making breakfast. It takes me back to my restaurant days working Sunday morning when everyone wanted their eggs to order and I was tired from working the weekend. Because of this I am always looking for ways to make breakfast recipes easy for myself. One of the other reasons I love making these Bacon Fat Fried Potatoes is because they require one sheet pan so there is very little clean up. Awhile back, I posted a recipe for a No Mess BLT where…

    Something you may not know about me is that besides writing for the Border Bulletin and my blog, I have a full time job. I am a personal chef / nanny for a family of five. I am responsible for the grocery shopping, meal planning, lunch packing, and dinner making 4 days a week. I also make food for their family parties and special events they host at their home. Just last weekend I watched twenty kids at the house while prepping for a brunch for 55 guests they were hosting on Sunday. Needless to say, this weekend I am…

  • Candied Butternut Squash Slices

    September 22, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    There are very few recipes of mine that Original Tipsy has asked ME for over the years. But these Candied Butternut Squash Slices are one of the recipes I made for her and she loved so much she asked me to share the recipe with her. I remember the first time I made these Candied Butternut Squash Slices was for a Fall cheese tasting I was hosting at the lake house. I had been inspired by a Butternut Squash recipe I saw in a magazine and added my own twist. The one thing I recommend for making these Candied Butternut…
