    Creamy Onion Casserole

    Let’s face it, when it comes to Thanksgiving and holiday recipes we all have our traditional recipes that we use year after year and that our family’s come to look forward to. As a recipe blogger coming up with new holiday recipes is the most difficult of tasks because we all like what we like. I myself am guilty of this. We keep our Thanksgiving dinner small but we still  make every single traditional dish because it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without them. I did want to come up with something a little different this year so I started to peruse…

  • World’s Best Thanksgiving Stuffing

I was in a Fall frame of mind when I was there and made this stuffing. If you have followed me for…

    I was catering an appetizer themed party this past Saturday and was trying to come up with new ideas for appetizers. As a brand ambassador for Chateau Foods I happen to have an endless supply of dumplings in my freezer and was brainstorming ways to work them into this menu. I saw someone making French Onion Soup over on Instagram and decided to find a way to combine the two. It took me a couple trials to get the recipe for these French Onion Soup Bites perfect, but once I got it right I knew I had to share it…

    I have been WAITING anxiously for the Holiday season to start.

  • Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions

    November 14, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I received my Imperfect Produce order late last night and included was a beautiful Acorn Squash and a couple of equally as gorgeous Russet Potatoes. I had been thinking of adding a vegetarian recipe to my Holiday collection of recipes and that is when I decided to make a Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions. I ran the idea by my recipe blogger friend The Kitchen Wife and she suggested adding bacon. While bacon is ALWAYS a good idea, I knew I wanted to keep this veggie forward, so I decided to add some salty crunch…

    A lot of my recipe inspiration comes from my family. I have been blessed with a large family and our holidays are filled with food traditions and memories.

It is practically the only way I will eat broccoli. This Broccoli Cheese Casserole…

  • Crispy Russet Potatoes Fried In bacon Fat

    Bacon Fat Fried Potatoes

    September 27, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This recipe is probably one of my favorites because of how easy it is. I especially hate making breakfast. It takes me back to my restaurant days working Sunday morning when everyone wanted their eggs to order and I was tired from working the weekend. Because of this I am always looking for ways to make breakfast recipes easy for myself. One of the other reasons I love making these Bacon Fat Fried Potatoes is because they require one sheet pan so there is very little clean up. Awhile back, I posted a recipe for a No Mess BLT where…

  • The 12 Days of TIPSYmas

    November 27, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    We are all guilty of anticipating the holidays, planning all kinds of fun things and before we know it, they have passed us by and we’ve done nothing to celebrate but rush around trying to get things done.  I decided that this year I was not going to let that happen.  As it is with most holidays, it can also seem like there isn’t a lot of magic in the holidays if you don’t have children to celebrate with. Which is absolutely not true. I have found many ways to make the holidays magical for me, Mr. Tipsy and my…
