    Creamy Onion Casserole

    October 8, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Let’s face it, when it comes to Thanksgiving and holiday recipes we all have our traditional recipes that we use year after year and that our family’s come to look forward to. As a recipe blogger coming up with new holiday recipes is the most difficult of tasks because we all like what we like. I myself am guilty of this. We keep our Thanksgiving dinner small but we still  make every single traditional dish because it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them. I did want to come up with something a little different this year so I started to peruse…

  • Sizzling Cauliflower With Lemon Butter

    September 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have a love hate relationship with cauliflower. I love to eat it raw, chopped up in salads, or as a vessel to eat dip but I hate the concept of cauliflower rice and cauliflower crust pizza. I think it smells and it takes my appetite away. I decided to try to make a recipe with some Cauliflower I was sent from my Imperfect Produce order that was cooked, but still had some crunch to it. I came up with this recipe for Sizzling Cauliflower with Lemon Butter and it was a big hit with me. It is very simple…

    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…

    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…

    Easy Grilled Chicken & Summer Mashed Potatoes

    May 30, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Probably like most folks, we practically live outside in the Summer. We have a little Urban oasis on our deck where we usually start and end the day.  We have a little Weber tabletop grill. It is the perfect size for us two. The cooking surface area is actually quite big. I recently came home from my Mom’s home in Michigan and realized I hadn’t cooked in over a week. I decided to end my streak and make an Easy Grilled Chicken and Summer Mashed Potatoes for my entry back into cooking. My Summer Mashed Potato recipe is a unique…

  • Simple Salad With An Easy Creamy Italian Dressing

    November 23, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    While I enjoy going to unique restaurants and food destinations, one of mine and Mr. Tipsy’s favorite places to eat out occasionally is the Olive Garden.  Sometimes I go just to have the salad and bread sticks. For some reason that salad just hits the spot. I wanted to recreate it at home and that is how I came up with the recipe for this Simple Salad with an Easy Creamy Italian Dressing.  I took everything I love about that Olive Garden salad and made it my own. This salad makes a great dinner and an especially great lunch. The…

  • Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions

    November 14, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I received my Imperfect Produce order late last night and included was a beautiful Acorn Squash and a couple of equally as gorgeous Russet Potatoes. I had been thinking of adding a vegetarian recipe to my Holiday collection of recipes and that is when I decided to make a Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions. I ran the idea by my recipe blogger friend The Kitchen Wife and she suggested adding bacon. While bacon is ALWAYS a good idea, I knew I wanted to keep this veggie forward, so I decided to add some salty crunch…

  • Broccoli Cheese Casserole

    A lot of my recipe inspiration comes from my family. I have been blessed with a large family and our holidays are filled with food traditions and memories. One of my many Aunt’s, makes some of my favorite dishes. We call her Boo Boo Barb and some of you may be familiar with her Spaghetti Sauce. The Boo Boo Barb Spaghetti Sauce is one of my most popular recipes on the blog. Another recipe she makes that is a family favorite, is her Broccoli Cheese Casserole. It is practically the only way I will eat broccoli. This Broccoli Cheese Casserole…
