    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…

    Seven Layer Salad

    July 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been in a salad state of mind for the last few weeks. I haven’t been home much to have access to my little grill and I just can’t bring myself to heat up the house with a hot stove or oven. This is why I have been making mostly no cook salads for dinner like this Seven Layer Salad I made today for dinner. This Seven Layer Salad is a salad I used to have to make when I worked in the deli of a local grocery store. This was one of the most popular recipes we sold…

    Crispy Bbq Pork Chops

    July 16, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    People constantly ask me how I am able to make dinner almost every night. I explain that dinner doesn’t have to be an overly complicated endeavor. Everything doesn’t have to be made from scratch and it’s perfectly fine to take some shortcuts in order to feed yourself or your family. One of my favorite short cut recipes are these Crispy Bbq Pork Chops. They are super easy to make, take very little time, make very little mess and they are absolutely delicious. The great thing about this recipe is that it produces a fried chop without the mess of having…

  • Fried Chicken Sliders

    July 6, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I want to start by saying that this hardly qualifies as a “recipe”. Since I have made these on my Instagram stories I have gotten so many questions about how I make these cheater Fried Chicken Sliders. I decided it would be easier to write this up as a blog post then to keep having to answer questions about what I buy to make these and how I make them. These Fried Chicken Sliders are am easy lunch or a perfect dinner for a busy day when you don’t have a lot of time to get dinner on the table.…

    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…

  • The Chelada

    July 3, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Several years ago on a trip to Mexico, a bartender made me The Chelada one morning after a fun night out the evening before. He promised me The Chelada would cure my hangover. I watched him make the the chelada using beer, clamato juice, lime and a few other of his secret ingredients. When he brought it to me it looked suspiciously like a bloody mary but not as thick as a bloody mary and not decorated with a salad bar of garnishes. I wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it because a bloody mary isn’t my favorite…

    Asian Inspired Pasta Salad

    July 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I had an idea for this Asian Inspired Pasta Salad for a few weeks now and I spent some time sorting out the recipe in my head before actually creating it.  I knew I wanted this pasta salad to be slightly sweet and have super crunchy vegetables, but I wasn’t sure about the rest. I didn’t decide all the ingredients for this recipe until I was actually in the store. I spotted the creamy poppy seed dressing that I used in this and built the rest of the pasta salad around it. I also had the idea to add mini…

    Fruit Pizza

    June 30, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, I can’t bake. Not only can I not bake but I also would say that I despise baking. It is too precise for my cooking style. While I hate baking, I was able to make this Fruit Pizza and I have to say, it came out pretty delicious. Granted it’s not actual baking, but you do have to bake off some ready made sugar cookie dough and I managed to do that without burning anything. If you are headed out to a cookout and need to bring something, then…
