• All The Northwoods Feels

    January 12, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    While I have been coming to the Northwoods for only the last 7 years or so, the bulk of my visits are in the warm weather months from Memorial Day to Thanksgiving. Two years ago I started to try to make it a tradition to come up in January after the New Year and experience the beloved, “Snow Mobile Season”. While I won’t go into a bunch of facts, (because I don’t know them) Eagle River and the surrounding areas are well known as the Snowmobile Capital Of The World.  There is something like 500 miles of trails and the…

  • Cleaning Up My Act ~ Beverage Edition

    January 5, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    New Year, New Me?  Not quite. Let’s face it, most of us set unattainable goals every New Year and the drive to accomplish them fizzles out soon after The New Year rolls around. I have never been the kind of person who does well being told I CAN’T have something, especially when it comes to food or cocktails. Because of this reason I stopped setting over-the-top health goals years ago (this is clearly obvious). I felt like there was so much pressure to succeed and I was just setting myself up for disappointment. Now that I’m getting older I do…

    Let’s face it, we all over indulge from time to time. We all know the feeling of not feeling well after a night out on the town, or in my case, a night at home. Some claim “the hair of the dog” is the only cure, but I disagree. The only cure is hangover food. I’m talking the salty, greasy, cheesy, buttery, variety that are oh so bad, but oh so good. I’ve highlighted ten things I’ve eaten this year that would cure any NYE debacles. Hopefully it helps soothe your New Years Day pain! Check out the list of…

  • Tipsy’s Top 5 Things You Need To Be Eating This Month

    December 27, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    Number 1 ~ Fried Chicken Tenders The fried chicken from Mother Cluckers Kitchen . Mr. Tipsy and I happened upon this place one day by accident. We loved it so much we have been back at least ten times now. The chicken is juicy and the batter is crunchy and perfect. Their side dishes are also equally as delicious. My favorites are the macaroni and cheese and the mashed potatoes. There hasn’t been one thing I didn’t love but these battered chicken tenders certainly rank pretty high on my list.They are opening a second location in Palatine, Illinois let’s hope…

    December 21, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    The holidays are HARD! So many parties so little time. I’m the kind of person who has this elaborate vision for how things should look at my events. I used to end up feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and sometimes even angry when I would try to execute my vision for these perfectly staged get togethers. Several years ago I decided to let go of that perfect visual and find ways to actually have fun at my own parties while still making them special. One of the ways I achieved this new Zen Like Tipsy was by incorporating the Buffet into…

    The holidays can be a stressful time for all of us.  I for one have FIVE, yes FIVE, Holiday parties to cook for in the week before Christmas alone.  Not to mention all the fun, yet taxing events leading up to Christmas and New Years.  As a food blogger, there is even more pressure to WOW the guests.

  • Tipsy’s Tour of Five Wisconsin Bloody Mary Hot Spots.

    December 4, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    The Bloody Mary is a weekend staple for The Tipsy Housewife, especially when I am up visiting the North Woods.  Typically, Original Tipsy and I make it a point to escape the men on a Saturday, and enjoy one or maybe even two Bloody’s at our favorite spots in town.  This trip we definitely needed a Girls Day Out so we decided to forgo our usual spots and become Bloody Mary Pioneers.  We explored five different spots to check out their Bloody Mary offerings, and we were NOT disappointed. Come with us on our journey of exploration for some of…

  • The 12 Days of TIPSYmas

    November 27, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    We are all guilty of anticipating the holidays, planning all kinds of fun things and before we know it, they have passed us by and we’ve done nothing to celebrate but rush around trying to get things done.  I decided that this year I was not going to let that happen.  As it is with most holidays, it can also seem like there isn’t a lot of magic in the holidays if you don’t have children to celebrate with. Which is absolutely not true. I have found many ways to make the holidays magical for me, Mr. Tipsy and my…
