• Easy Chili with Mini Corn Bread Bites

    January 17, 2020thetipsyhousewife

    It’s Officially Chili Season, Time For East Chili With Mini Corn Bread Bites Chili season has officially arrived and I am here for it. I love making this easy chili with mini corn bread bites for the week. It is a great recipe to have on hand for a quick dinner or a hearty lunch. This particular chili recipe is a little different from my my usual chili recipe. This easy chili and mini corn bread bite recipe is a lot more kid friendly with it being on the sweeter side and less spicy. The good news is, you can…

  • Baked Parmesan Chicken Tenders

    June 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    As much as I love to cook even I get tired of thinking of things to make for dinner. I have mentioned before that I hate eating leftovers. So inevitably, I have to think of something different to make for dinner almost every single night. Some nights I make more complicated meals but I do have a litany of quick and easy recipes that grown ups and kids both love.  These Baked Parmesan Chicken Tenders are one of those quick and easy recipes. Mister Tipsy and I love them and the kids I used to cook for loved them too.…

    Tomato Pasta

    June 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    The funny story about this Tomato Pasta is that I found the recipe in an old cookbook and decided to make it for my boyfriend at the time. I can’t remember the name of the cookbook now, but the recipe was so good that for years after we broke up, my ex would mention this pasta to me any time I ran into him. I made some changes to the recipe from the original one that I found in the cookbook back then. I think this version of Tomato Pasta is the best one because it uses such simple ingredients…

  • 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…

  • Pierogi Soup

    November 11, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    My family and I get together once a year in the Spring to make Pierogi. Most years we make well over 700+ pierogi. We look forward to the day every year and half way through we wonder why we EVER decided to make this a tradition. The work is tedious but the time together is what we look forward to and enjoy. Sadly, last year we didn’t make pierogi for various reasons, but also because we sort of needed a break. I have had to resort to buying pierogi the last year as I had depleted my homemade supply a…

  • 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…

  • 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…
