    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…

  • Crispy Potato Tacos

    August 24, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have yet to meet a taco I didn’t like. What is better than savory meats, fresh veggies, and CHESSE in its own little vessel you can eat? Can’t think of many things can you? I am ALWAYS looking for new ways to enjoy tacos. Recently I was at Aldi, my home away from home, and I saw these fabulous little potatoes called Boomer Gold, Creamer Potatoes. Had to have them….. It was then that I remembered a friend I used to work with whose Mom would send these awesome crispy potato tacos to work with him for us to…

  • Breakfast Bread That Anyone Can Bake

    August 23, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    It’s rare that I miss a meal, obviously. But one meal I never seem to eat is breakfast. This leaves me hungry and crabby by the time lunch rolls around. Desperate to eat I often choose something that isn’t great for me. I decided to make it a personal goal to try to eat something at least somewhat healthy for me in the morning. This is why I created a breakfast bread that anyone can bake, even people who can’t bake well, like me. This breakfast bread is filled with healthy things and it has minimal refined sugar. I was…

  • Tough Day Dinner ~ Dressed Up Dogs

    July 29, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Thinking of things to make for dinner can sometimes make me want to rip my hair out. I get complaints of being sick of the same old things I make over and over and yet there are times I try something new and no one wants to eat it because it is unfamiliar. The other day I was in need of a Tough Day Dinner and I remembered some interesting hot dogs I saw at Aldi. They were Bavarian Style Hot Dogs. They looked lighter in color to your typical hot dog and they were also longer and skinnier. I…

    July 24, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I love a good Chicken Parmesan dish, but frankly it’s A LOT of messy work to make it. Made the traditional way, it’s definitely not a recipe for a busy work week.

I got creative and did a little food research and came up with what I think is a pretty solid representation of the dish. All you need are a few simple ingredients. I got…

  • “Tough Day” Dinner ~ Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs On The Grill

    June 26, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I grew up in a family where we rarely ate out. We love to cook so if we had a craving for something we made it ourselves at home. Once in a great while, an occasion to eat out would come up and we would go to the local “Greek” Restaurant. I grew up on the Southwest side of Chicago, near Midway Airport and these “Greek” places were on every couple of corners. This is not the kind of Greek Restaurant you are thinking of, there was little, if any, actual Greek Food. The restaurants in our neighborhood were just…

  • Cure The Sushi Craving At Home • In 15 Minutes • For Less Than $15 ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    June 5, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    For the last ten days I have been exploring the food scene of the Northwoods of Wisconsin and the Western U.P. of Michigan. It has been a wonderfully delicious adventure filled with many culinary delights except for one, sushi. I of course came home from this magical trip craving the one thing I couldn’t get. Not in the mood to go out and never in the mood to spend a lot of money on any kind of food that I am able to prepare myself, I decided to make my famous, poor mans sushi at home. If you have followed…
