• Meatloaf Casserole

    October 9, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Full disclosure, my meatloaf recipe is not MY meatloaf recipe. It is the recipe my Stepfather’s Mom used and it is absolutely fantastic. It is one of those perfect meatloaf recipes that is not too dense and just enough onion and spice. I make it at least once a month and it is great the night I serve it and even better the next as sandwiches. I used to make this meatloaf casserole recipe ten years ago or more with a group of seniors I used to teach cooking to and it was one of our favorite recipes. I decided…

    White Cheddar Bacon Burgers

    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…

    I have been using my Instant Pot more often for two reasons.

I love making slow cooked meats and soups and the Instant Pot makes this possible on even the busiest of days. We were having a taste for Roast Beef Sandwiches and when I stopped at my local butcher recently, they had a beautiful rump roast on sale. This Rump Roast can be a main course served with mashed potatoes and…

  • Macaroni & Hamburger Soup

    December 4, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    There are tons of versions of this easy Macaroni & Hamburger Soup on Pinterest. It goes by many names, my most favorite being, “Bachelor Stew”. The whole idea of this soup is ease and affordability. My version reminds me of how soup in a can USED to taste. Before they added all the chemicals. I make this soup on the stove because I have time and I am at home, but this is a GREAT recipe for your slow cooker if you don’t have time to stand at the stove all day. I will include a slow cooker step in…

  • The Lost Recipes of The 1950’s Housewives ~Chopped Steak~

    August 25, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    Someone I know always orders the chopped steak at restaurants because he is afraid it will be taken off the menu and go extinct if people don’t order it.  I’m not exactly sure where the concern comes from, but clearly the dish evokes a memory for that person that he doesn’t want to see die. I think we all have certain foods that are connected to memories of a good time or a specific person and with the lapse in teaching cooking skills to recent generations, a lot of these recipes have literally and figuratively died with their keepers. Thinking…
