    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…

  • Fried Chicken Sliders

    July 6, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I want to start by saying that this hardly qualifies as a “recipe”. Since I have made these on my Instagram stories I have gotten so many questions about how I make these cheater Fried Chicken Sliders. I decided it would be easier to write this up as a blog post then to keep having to answer questions about what I buy to make these and how I make them. These Fried Chicken Sliders are am easy lunch or a perfect dinner for a busy day when you don’t have a lot of time to get dinner on the table.…

  • The Chelada

    July 3, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Several years ago on a trip to Mexico, a bartender made me The Chelada one morning after a fun night out the evening before. He promised me The Chelada would cure my hangover. I watched him make the the chelada using beer, clamato juice, lime and a few other of his secret ingredients. When he brought it to me it looked suspiciously like a bloody mary but not as thick as a bloody mary and not decorated with a salad bar of garnishes. I wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it because a bloody mary isn’t my favorite…

    Asian Inspired Pasta Salad

    July 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I had an idea for this Asian Inspired Pasta Salad for a few weeks now and I spent some time sorting out the recipe in my head before actually creating it.  I knew I wanted this pasta salad to be slightly sweet and have super crunchy vegetables, but I wasn’t sure about the rest. I didn’t decide all the ingredients for this recipe until I was actually in the store. I spotted the creamy poppy seed dressing that I used in this and built the rest of the pasta salad around it. I also had the idea to add mini…

    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…

  • 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…
