    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…

    Tomato Pasta

    June 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    The funny story about this Tomato Pasta is that I found the recipe in an old cookbook and decided to make it for my boyfriend at the time. I can’t remember the name of the cookbook now, but the recipe was so good that for years after we broke up, my ex would mention this pasta to me any time I ran into him. I made some changes to the recipe from the original one that I found in the cookbook back then. I think this version of Tomato Pasta is the best one because it uses such simple ingredients…

    Cheesy Grilled Chicken & Peppers

    June 13, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I love making these Cheesy Grilled Chicken & Peppers packets for the grill. The ingredients are so simple and fresh. The recipe take minutes to prep and the best news is, you can eat right out of the packets! No dishes to wash! This recipe has all the flavors of Summer. What I love most about this recipe is the crunchy sweet texture of the peppers that you use and the tangy glaze of teryaki. The grilled pineapple adds another great layer of flavor. I chose to use boneless skinless chicken thighs for this recipe because I find them to…

    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…

  • Summer Pasta

    August 28, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I am forever looking for new uses for the gifts from my garden, especially as Fall draws near. You can only freeze so much, and lets face it, frozen herbs and veggies just don’t taste as good as when they are fresh. I think anyone who has a garden also shares the same overwhelmed feeling as the tomatoes and basil pile up. I did some kitchen experimenting the other night with some of the items from our garden and came up with a Summer Pasta dish that everyone, even the kids, loved! Even better, we were able to use the…

  • What To Do With All Those Garden Tomatoes

    August 20, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Summer is coming to an end and it seems like everywhere I turn someone is trying to push their excess tomatoes on me. I have been turning down these tomato pushers left and right because…how many tomatoes can you possibly eat? This past weekend Original Tipsy (My Mom) made a fantastic and simple pasta dish that has me kicking myself for not taking those tomatoes. She gave me her recipe and it will have you with an answer to the question “What to do with all those garden tomatoes?” Here is what you will need for the recipe: •2 to…

  • A Salad For Everyone

    August 15, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A lot of people are not eating carbs anymore. My Keto food blogging friends are blowing up social media with their cheese, veggie and meat recipes and people are loving it. Clearly I am not on the Keto train but I do have an appreciation for it. I often entertain and I know there are going to be times that I need to make food that makes everyone happy so I decided to create a salad for everyone. The salad I came up with is inspired by an Italian Sub Sandwich and can be made two ways with most of…

  • Three Recipes You Need To Be Making This Weekend

    August 11, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I know that it’s Summer and everyone is living life outdoors, but we are getting closer to  the “ber” months and it’s time to start preparing to be cozy. I for one am looking forward to the end of Summer, cooler days and weekend comfort food cooking. Perhaps I am jumping the gun just a little, but August is a good time to get back in the kitchen and brush up on those cooking skills that may have gotten lost over the backyard bbq. I rounded up three recipes you need to be making this weekend to help you get…
