    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…

  • Easy Vodka Sauce

    December 28, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    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…

    If you have followed me for some time you probably know that I often talk about my Mom, Original Tipsy and how she instilled her love and talent for cooking in me. One person I haven’t mentioned is my Dad who shares an equal love of food and cooking. My Dad makes the best bread and lately has been experimenting with recipes that I am quite surprised by seeing, as the man claims to have never eaten an egg.  My memories of my Dad cooking always go back to classic, simple food that I always crave. I find it funny…

    Summer is in full swing over at Tipsy HQ and the days are LONG! The three kids I cook for / care for are home from an extended trip to Spain and the Summer boredom has already kicked in. Luckily they are signed up for camps the next couple of weeks and school is back in session mid August. That being said, we still have to eat and for some reason in the Summer, someone is ALWAYS hungry. With three kids that are different ages and a few extra neighborhood kids that come straggling in and out of our house…

  • 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…
