• 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…

    Polish Hamburgers

    December 1, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is one of those family recipes that you never stop craving. These Polish Hamburgers are a meal that my Grandma always used to make. We would have them on weekdays, and sometimes we would even have them on special occasions. They were THAT good. Polish Hamburgers are called Klotlety or Klupskies in Polish. Every family makes them their own special way, but they are all similar. Typically they are made with ground pork, onions, eggs, bread and milk, along with spices and seasonings. The recipe for my family’s Polish Hamburgers is an easy one. I would describe them as…

  • Salad Pizza

    November 17, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Call me weird, but one of my favorite things about a pizza party is when you have salad and pizza on your plate and some of the salad dressing gets on your slice and pretty much makes it absolutely perfect.  This is why I started making Salad Pizza at home.  It makes a really great lunch or a dinner and with the invention of bag salad kits, your whole family can customize their own pizza. I was at Aldi the other morning, per usual, and I saw they had the naan I use to make my quick and easy wood…

  • Stuffing Waffles

    November 8, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Stuffing Waffles, they are a thing, trust me. I am all for giving credit where credit is due, but for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw this idea for the first time. I know I did not think it up organically but I did create a recipe of my own for it. You may have never heard of Stuffing Waffles yourself, but they are a great way to use up leftover stuffing and make a great base for leftover turkey sandwiches. Think cranberry mayo too! After making these today, I was also thinking that Stuffing Waffles…

  • Chicken In Lemon Cream Sauce

    November 6, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This recipe is fairly simple, but it is definitely not a easy weeknight meal. This is a nice dinner to make when you have some time to pour a glass of wine, put your favorite show on television and are prepared to spend some time in the kitchen.  I can’t remember where or when I have a Chicken In A Lemon Cream Sauce, but I know I have and that is why I wanted to make it.  The recipe sort of came about in a Fridge Forage situation, these are the ingredients I had on hand. I needed to make…

  • Chicken Mirabella

    October 26, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    My cousin made this for us the very first time and when she told us what was in it we were very hesitant to eat it. This Chicken Mirabella is a sweet and savory chicken dish that has olives AND prunes. Trust me, I know this sounds weird. But the flavors of this dish are one that you will not soon forget. It is perfect all on its own and even better with some crispy oven roasted potatoes. Here is what you will need to make the Chicken Mirabella: Ingredients 3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, I cut mine into smaller,…

  • 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…
