• Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

    November 8, 2022thetipsyhousewife

    Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad is a great party salad and also an easy, delicious lunch option. I have been making this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad for years. Basically since the invention of the bag of already shaved Brussels sprouts from Trader Joes and Aldi. If you have to slice the Brussels Sprouts yourself that’s not hard to do. This salad has all the right notes for me. Savory, sweet, crunch, tender. I love that it is chock full of vegetables, a little fruit and meaty little pecans. I sometimes add chopped rotisserie chicken meat to this…

    Broccoli Cheddar Salad

    August 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    One of my favorite things to do is to make a big salad and eat it during the week for lunch and send some with Mister Tipsy for his lunches at work. Mister Tipsy’s Dad also enjoys having a salad on hand therefore I experiment with making different kinds of salad dressings and trying different combinations of vegetables. I started making this Broccoli Cheddar Salad a few years ago and it is always a fan favorite. This particular variation of Broccoli Cheddar Salad has toasted pumpkin seeds and a mustard based dressing but you can add any kind of crunch…

    Submarine Sandwich

    June 27, 2019thetipsyhousewife

      When it comes to cooking, I have some strengths. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to make a pretty great Submarine Sandwich. It is one of the things that Mister Tipsy requests the most. Every year he goes on a guys trip to Florida and he specifically requests that I make this Submarine Sandwich for him and his friends to take on the plane.  The ingredients for this sub are simple, but they are very specific. If I substitute any of the ingredients from what I normally use, it just doesn’t taste the same. I am not…

  • The Ultimate Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

    May 31, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    As you may or may not know depending on how long you have followed me, I am a brand ambassador for a local Chicago, 92 year old, family business called Chateau Dumplings.  I work closely with them to develop recipes using their products, photographing them and managing their social media and marketing events. The partnership was a natural one, as I grew up eating these delicious Czech inspired dumplings most of my life. Traditionally, the bread dumplings were served steamed with a Czech recipe for roast pork. You also served gravy and  red cabbage or sauerkraut with this dish. If…

    November 23, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    While I enjoy going to unique restaurants and food destinations, one of mine and Mr. Tipsy’s favorite places to eat out occasionally is the Olive Garden.  Sometimes I go just to have the salad and bread sticks. For some reason that salad just hits the spot. I wanted to recreate it at home and that is how I came up with the recipe for this Simple Salad with an Easy Creamy Italian Dressing.  I took everything I love about that Olive Garden salad and made it my own. This salad makes a great dinner and an especially great lunch. The…

  • Salad Pizza

    November 17, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Call me weird, but one of my favorite things about a pizza party is when you have salad and pizza on your plate and some of the salad dressing gets on your slice and pretty much makes it absolutely perfect.  This is why I started making Salad Pizza at home.  It makes a really great lunch or a dinner and with the invention of bag salad kits, your whole family can customize their own pizza. I was at Aldi the other morning, per usual, and I saw they had the naan I use to make my quick and easy wood…

  • Marinated Eggs, Your New Favorite Snack

    August 21, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    The family I cook for introduced me to this Marinated Egg concept. What’s not to love about hard boiled eggs soaked in soy sauce and other seasonings? I can’t think of anything. I have been obsessed with farm fresh eggs from the farmer’s market this Summer so I decided to try something new with my eggs and put my own spin on the marinated eggs I devour at work. This recipe is fairly simple, but it does require some special ingredients and some time. If you give it a shot these Marinated Eggs will be your new favorite snack. Here…

  • A Salad For Everyone

    August 15, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A lot of people are not eating carbs anymore. My Keto food blogging friends are blowing up social media with their cheese, veggie and meat recipes and people are loving it. Clearly I am not on the Keto train but I do have an appreciation for it. I often entertain and I know there are going to be times that I need to make food that makes everyone happy so I decided to create a salad for everyone. The salad I came up with is inspired by an Italian Sub Sandwich and can be made two ways with most of…
