    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…

  • 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…

  • Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire

    My Aunt has been talking about this recipe for Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire for years. It was the first recipe she made for my Uncle on their one year wedding anniversary.  It has now been over 40 years and it is still a recipe that she makes to this day.  I was visiting for a few days and I asked her to show me how she makes this Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire and she did. Boy was it delicious. It is a very simple recipe that requires minimal ingredients, it has such great flavor. It is perfect for special occasions but it…

  • Easy Vodka Sauce

    This is a recipe I have been making for years. When I had it for the first time I was sure that it was some overly complicated, intricate recipe because it was so absolutely delicious. When I asked the original recipe creator for the recipe I couldn’t believe that it was actually a really Easy Vodka Sauce recipe. I made some adjustments over the years and  I think now that it is practically perfect. I have to be honest, this Vodka Sauce is not healthy, what makes it delicious is lots of butter, cream and cheese. It is definitely a…

    One of my favorite products to cook with are the Chateau Foods Dumplings. Chateau Dumplings are a traditional Czech dumplings in both bread and potato dumplings. The bread is typically made with a roast pork and served with gravy. The potato dumplings are traditionally large and served with butter and dill. Chateau makes a mini version that I LOVE to keep on hand in the freezer. They are super versatile, and can be eaten on their own.  I like to use them in place of pasta, rice or any of my other typical carb components. I can best describe them…

  • Smoked Sausage & Egg Noodles

    Mr. Tipsy has been suggesting this for dinner for years. It always sounded so weird to me and I couldn’t understand why he kept asking me to make it. I come to find out, after more than a decade together, that this is a dish his Mom used to make for him. His Mom is no longer with us, but her food was a legacy she left us. Before she passed she gave me her cookbook bible, the one you slip all the recipes you cut out of magazines and the ones you ask friends for that are written on…

    Something you may not know about me is that besides writing for the Border Bulletin and my blog, I have a full time job. I am a personal chef / nanny for a family of five. I am responsible for the grocery shopping, meal planning, lunch packing, and dinner making 4 days a week. I also make food for their family parties and special events they host at their home. Just last weekend I watched twenty kids at the house while prepping for a brunch for 55 guests they were hosting on Sunday. Needless to say, this weekend I am…
