• Sunday Fun Day Pot Roast In The Instant Pot

    August 26, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    If you’re in the Midwest like me, you are probably sweating to death while reading this. Even though it is hot, and the humidity is at 150%, the reality is Fall is coming. Regardless of the heat I have nothing but Fall comfort foods on my mind. As a child I despised pot roast, but now it is one of those things I crave. It is such a great Sunday dinner and makes great leftovers to bring for lunch or to have during a busy work week. If you are home cooling off, make your Sunday a fun day by…

  • Show Of Hands If You Know What Gravy Bread Is

    June 30, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Being from Chicago, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a staple in our diet. I have so many favorites and I like each one for different reasons. Everything makes a difference in the making of  a good beef. The seasoning, the quality of the meat, the spice, the heat and the bread. The main reason why I love Italian Beef’s are because of the gravy soaked bread. There are even some beef stands in Chicago where you can JUST get a gravy bread. They take the Italian bread and soak it in the beef au jus and it is a delicious soggy…

Therefore, putting a fancy dinner on the table is sometimes impossible. Most of us resort to ordering in, or dinner from a drive through. I don’t know about you, but take-out and delivery in Chicago has gotten EXPENSIVE. I also can’t stand spending money on mediocre food. As a food blogger I can also get slightly over zealous at times and I can see how SOME of my…

  • Three Ways to Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day The Tipsy Way, By Eating

    March 14, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    For many years Saint Patrick’s Day was my most dreaded holiday of the year. I used to tend bar part-time (yes, yet another job) and nothing said amateur night (or day) more than Saint Patrick’s Day. It was a day and night filled with slinging drinks, sloppy drunks, no tips, and suburbanites wearing tee shirts that proclaimed they were “CHI-RISH” UGH! On  my own, I refused to ever celebrate the holiday except for the years I spent in my friends yard during the South Side Irish Parade. I don’t count that as celebrating because it was basically beer drinking, fire…

  • Tipsy’s Top 5 Questions I Get Asked About What It’s Like To Be A Food Blogger

    January 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    One of the most asked questions I get as The Tipsy Housewife is, “What is it?”. What does it mean to be a food blogger or an Influencer? This can be a very complicated and difficult thing to try to explain to people not in the business.  For example, try explaining this to your 80+ year old Grandmother…actually my Grandma seems to understand it better than a lot of younger people. I decided to write a blog post about it since I get asked about it so much! Below are the five questions I get asked most frequently and my…
