• 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…

    Simple French Onion Soup Anyone Can Make

    July 15, 2021thetipsyhousewife

    A Simple French Onion Soup Anyone Can Make When I say anyone, I mean anyone. Over the years I have come to realize that French Onion soup is a recipe many people are afraid to make at home. Therefore, they save this indulgence for when they go out to eat. The basic broth for this soup is actually rather simple. It seems to me that they fear of making this recipe at home comes from the cheesy topping this soup is served with. usually this cheesy topping is a toasted piece of French Bread floated on top. The bread and…

    Zesty Bean Salad

    August 6, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Without fail, Mister Tipsy texts me everyday, halfway through his work day, to ask me what we are having for dinner. Last week when he texted me and asked and I responded with my answer that we were having Zesty Bean Salad, I didn’t get the typical excited response. He hasn’t quite caught on that I have been working more meatless meals into our weekly rotation this Summer. I knew this Zesty Bean Salad would be a hard sell in theory, but I also knew once he tasted it , he would love it. I used to make a very…

    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…
