• Baked Parmesan Chicken Tenders

    June 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    As much as I love to cook even I get tired of thinking of things to make for dinner. I have mentioned before that I hate eating leftovers. So inevitably, I have to think of something different to make for dinner almost every single night. Some nights I make more complicated meals but I do have a litany of quick and easy recipes that grown ups and kids both love.  These Baked Parmesan Chicken Tenders are one of those quick and easy recipes. Mister Tipsy and I love them and the kids I used to cook for loved them too.…

    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…

  • Italian Sausage Sandwich

    June 26, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    It is FINALLY Summer here in the Midwest and in my house it wouldn’t be Summer without a great Italian Sausage Sandwich from the grill. Except of course when you can’t figure out how to put on the new propane tank. I make these sandwiches every year on my grill and wouldn’t you know it, the day I decide to make them, Mister Tipsy isn’t home and I cant figure out how to attach the propane tank. The good news is I was still able to make this Italian Sausage Sandwich on the stove, in my cast iron skillet and…

    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…

    White Cheddar Bacon Burgers

    June 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I know that it’s all the rage to put all the toppings you possibly can on a cheeseburger, but when it comes to burgers I think simple is best. I make these White Cheddar Bacon Burgers on the grill when the weather cooperates  and they are always a hit with whomever I make them for. These White Cheddar Bacon Burgers have very few ingredients but the few they do are quality ingredients which is what makes them extra special. The two ingredients that are a MUST are: Good Quality Cheddar Cheese Good Quality Ground Beef I like to buy the…

    Instant Pot Creamy Potato Soup

    June 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    We all love the Instant Pot. It took me awhile to get used to this handy kitchen appliance but now I am Instant Pot addicted. I make tons of recipes in mine including breakfast, lunch and dinners. One of the Instant Pot’s best uses is for making soup. I have always been a big fan of slow simmering soups cooking away on the stove but some days this is just not possible. The Instant Pot makes it possible to have an all day soup recipe done from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. Mr. Tipsy and I love…

    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…
