    Zesty Bean Salad

    August 6, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Without fail, Mister Tipsy texts me everyday, halfway through his work day, to ask me what we are having for dinner. Last week when he texted me and asked and I responded with my answer that we were having Zesty Bean Salad, I didn’t get the typical excited response. He hasn’t quite caught on that I have been working more meatless meals into our weekly rotation this Summer. I knew this Zesty Bean Salad would be a hard sell in theory, but I also knew once he tasted it , he would love it. I used to make a very…

    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…

    Instant Pot Creamy Potato Soup

    June 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    We all love the Instant Pot. It took me awhile to get used to this handy kitchen appliance but now I am Instant Pot addicted. I make tons of recipes in mine including breakfast, lunch and dinners. One of the Instant Pot’s best uses is for making soup. I have always been a big fan of slow simmering soups cooking away on the stove but some days this is just not possible. The Instant Pot makes it possible to have an all day soup recipe done from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. Mr. Tipsy and I love…

  • Simple Salad With An Easy Creamy Italian Dressing

    November 23, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    While I enjoy going to unique restaurants and food destinations, one of mine and Mr. Tipsy’s favorite places to eat out occasionally is the Olive Garden.  Sometimes I go just to have the salad and bread sticks. For some reason that salad just hits the spot. I wanted to recreate it at home and that is how I came up with the recipe for this Simple Salad with an Easy Creamy Italian Dressing.  I took everything I love about that Olive Garden salad and made it my own. This salad makes a great dinner and an especially great lunch. The…

  • Oven Bbq Ribs

    September 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Fair warning, these Oven Bbq Ribs are not your typical grilled or smoked ribs. These Oven Bbq Ribs are made inside the house,  in the oven. They are just as, if not more, delicious than anything coming from the grill or smoker. These Oven Bbq Ribs are one of the first things my Mom, Original Tipsy, taught me to cook. I made these Oven Bbq Ribs for my high school boyfriend when we were about sixteen years old and after he got a taste it was hard to shake him even years later. These Oven Bbq Ribs are THAT good.…

    July 24, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I love a good Chicken Parmesan dish, but frankly it’s A LOT of messy work to make it. Made the traditional way, it’s definitely not a recipe for a busy work week. So what do you do when you’re craving this dish and don’t want the fuss that comes with making it? You make a Cheater Chicken Parmesan and that is this week’s Tipsy Tuesday Tip. I got creative and did a little food research and came up with what I think is a pretty solid representation of the dish. All you need are a few simple ingredients. I got…
