    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…

  • 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.…

    Tomato Pasta

    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…

  • Memorial Day Weekend Ideas

    *I was provided a gift card from Tony’s Fresh Market to shop for these items and include them in a blog post. However, all opinions are my own and I shop at Tony’s weekly. Memorial Day for most means parties, bbq’s and chilling out with a cold beer. Unfortunately for a lot of people the holiday weekend also means they have to work and they don’t get to enjoy the weekend the way others do. It has been my family’s Memorial Day tradition to head up to our lake house in Michigan for the holiday but Mr. Tipsy is one…

  • Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

    January 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I am a collector of vintage cookbooks and recipe binders. Some of my favorites are the church cookbooks that are a collection of old recipes collected from the members and printed and sold as a fundraiser. One recipe that I kept seeing repeated from these cookbooks was a Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole. Something about it intrigued me. After reading through the many recipes for this classic dish, I decided to put my own spin on it. This Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole can be assembled ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal, it is great for a party or potluck…

  • Beans, Greens & Proteins Recipe Challenge

    February 17, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A few months back I formed a virtual women’s group on Instagram with fellow recipe creating food bloggers.  I sought out women from different states so that we created a well-rounded group with various culinary backgrounds and tastes.  This group has been one of the most supportive group of women I have ever professionally worked with. As I was creating my content calendar for January, recipes with a healthier twist, I had this great idea to bring a cooking challenge to my ladies group.  The challenge was that you were to create a recipe using three components: beans, greens and…
