    Instant Pot Taco Rice

    September 19, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Weeknights are always a busy time to try and get dinner on the table. I love using my Instant Pot during the week to create quick and easy dinners that taste delicious. I have become obsessed with my Instant Pot and make everything in it from rice, to hard boiled eggs to Sunday Roasts. I never have much luck cooking rice on the stove top but with my Instant Pot it comes out perfect every single time. Truth be told, we got the Instant Pot fro Christmas one year and I didn’t start using it right away because I was…

    Party Dip

    June 1, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Last week when I was at the lake house our friend mentioned snacking on some dried beef. While I would never probably buy the beef just to snack on, it did trigger a memory of a recipe I saw in my Grandma’s cookbook of a party dip that was popular in the 1960’s. I personally am a big fan of party dip. In fact, one of my favorite Aunts always has some kind of homemade dip in her fridge and I love going there. It is such a great snack to eat with veggies or crackers and perfect for busy…

  • 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…

  • The Way To A Persons Heart

    February 13, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Every couple has a love story of how they met and fell in love.  Mr. Tipsy and I have a story and it is of course centered around food.  I knew Mr. Tipsy through a mutual friend who liked him.  She knew that I was a good cook and she knew he loved to eat so she came up with the (not so) brilliant idea to have him and his friend over to my apartment where I would prepare a meal for the four of us.  Let’s just say he enjoyed that meal so much, that he hasn’t left, going…

  • Tipsy’s Top 5 Questions I Get Asked About What It’s Like To Be A Food Blogger

    January 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    One of the most asked questions I get as The Tipsy Housewife is, “What is it?”. What does it mean to be a food blogger or an Influencer? This can be a very complicated and difficult thing to try to explain to people not in the business.  For example, try explaining this to your 80+ year old Grandmother…actually my Grandma seems to understand it better than a lot of younger people. I decided to write a blog post about it since I get asked about it so much! Below are the five questions I get asked most frequently and my…

  • Tipsy’s Top 5 Things You Need To Be Eating This Month

    December 27, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    Number 1 ~ Fried Chicken Tenders The fried chicken from Mother Cluckers Kitchen . Mr. Tipsy and I happened upon this place one day by accident. We loved it so much we have been back at least ten times now. The chicken is juicy and the batter is crunchy and perfect. Their side dishes are also equally as delicious. My favorites are the macaroni and cheese and the mashed potatoes. There hasn’t been one thing I didn’t love but these battered chicken tenders certainly rank pretty high on my list.They are opening a second location in Palatine, Illinois let’s hope…

  • Tipsy’s Top Five Places to Eat In The Suburbs ~ Western Suburbs Edition

    November 3, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    As a life long city girl, I used to think the suburban food scene was a mix of TGI Friday’s (are those still around?) mall food courts and pick up joints for over 50 divorced people.  I am humble enough to admit that I was dead wrong. A couple of weeks ago, my older Golden Retriever tore his ACL and we had to temporarily move in with my parent’s while he prepared and then recovered from surgery. Not the best situation, but I used the opportunity to explore the Food Scene of the Western Burbs.  I was pleasantly surprised at…
