    Broccoli Cheddar Salad

    August 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    One of my favorite things to do is to make a big salad and eat it during the week for lunch and send some with Mister Tipsy for his lunches at work. Mister Tipsy’s Dad also enjoys having a salad on hand therefore I experiment with making different kinds of salad dressings and trying different combinations of vegetables. I started making this Broccoli Cheddar Salad a few years ago and it is always a fan favorite. This particular variation of Broccoli Cheddar Salad has toasted pumpkin seeds and a mustard based dressing but you can add any kind of crunch…

    Bacon Bbq Potato Chip Nachos

    Who is ready for some football? Frankly I could care less about watching anything to do with sports but I do love football season for the food. Mister Tipsy loves to sit around on Sunday and watch his games and snack. This works out because I love to feed him. I was thinking of something different to make for game day and I foraged for ingredients in my pantry and fridge and came up with these fantastic Bacon Bbq Potato Chip Nachos. I have to warn you, they are super addicting. Since I have made these Bacon Bbq Potato Chip…

    Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs

    August 15, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Before I get into this recipe I have to warn you that these are addicting.  Once you make these Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs, your friends and family are going to ask you to make them all the time. What I love about these Mini Chicago Style Hot Dogs is that you can serve them as a build your own appetizer or dress them up for your guests with all the fixings. This recipe is simple to make but needs to be made right when you want to serve it. I did make these and reheated some the next day…

  • Easy Al Pastor Tacos

    August 9, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I don’t think I have ever met a person who doesn’t like tacos. I personally could eat tacos every single day of the week. I am lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with a taco cart on every corner and a Mexican restaurant every two steps. In fact, I once did a taco crawl in my neighborhood and tried an incredible amount of tacos. You can read that blog post here A Taco Tour of Rogers Park. I have yet to meet a taco I didn’t like. One of my most favorite types of taco is Al Pastor. I…

    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…
