    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…

    Instant Pot Creamy Potato Soup

    June 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    We all love the Instant Pot. It took me awhile to get used to this handy kitchen appliance but now I am Instant Pot addicted. I make tons of recipes in mine including breakfast, lunch and dinners. One of the Instant Pot’s best uses is for making soup. I have always been a big fan of slow simmering soups cooking away on the stove but some days this is just not possible. The Instant Pot makes it possible to have an all day soup recipe done from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. Mr. Tipsy and I love…

  • Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese

    April 14, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have a confession to make, this was my first time making Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese.  Truth be told, I never like Macaroni & Cheese when it is homemade. I prefer the box of Kraft Mac -n- Cheese over any homemade that I ever had. The number one reason being, that it gets grainy and thick and it is never creamy. I have had a few great experiences making pasta in the Instant Pot, so I came up with a plan for this Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese and decided to give it a whirl. I was shocked at…

  • Shredded Chicken Taco Meat

    January 14, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best ones. This Shredded Chicken Taco recipe is one I have always made in my crockpot and it is a quick and easy recipe for busy weeknights. It is also perfect for parties and you need to cook for a crowd. While it works perfectly in the crockpot I recently started making it in my Instant Pot on the days I forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. I have made this shredded chicken taco recipe from frozen chicken thighs and it also works really well. You will need a…

  • Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

    December 29, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    The belief that homemade Chicken Noodle Soup can cure sickness is not lost on me. It is thought that when you make a broth from bones, the nutrients from the bones can help heal your gut where they say that all sickness starts. I don’t know if this is true, but this Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup tastes so good that I believe it has magical healing properties. I used to make this soup before I got my Instant Pot and it would have to sit on the stove all day long simmering away. When we got the instant pot,…

  • Roast Beef Sandwiches

    December 12, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have been using my Instant Pot more often for two reasons. One, my Aunt recently purchased one and I know she will be looking for recipes and two, the busier I get with Tipsy, the less time I have. I love making slow cooked meats and soups and the Instant Pot makes this possible on even the busiest of days. We were having a taste for Roast Beef Sandwiches and when I stopped at my local butcher recently, they had a beautiful rump roast on sale. This Rump Roast can be a main course served with mashed potatoes and…

  • Sunday Fun Day Pot Roast In The Instant Pot

    August 26, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    If you’re in the Midwest like me, you are probably sweating to death while reading this. Even though it is hot, and the humidity is at 150%, the reality is Fall is coming. Regardless of the heat I have nothing but Fall comfort foods on my mind. As a child I despised pot roast, but now it is one of those things I crave. It is such a great Sunday dinner and makes great leftovers to bring for lunch or to have during a busy work week. If you are home cooling off, make your Sunday a fun day by…
