• Meatloaf Casserole

    October 9, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Full disclosure, my meatloaf recipe is not MY meatloaf recipe. It is the recipe my Stepfather’s Mom used and it is absolutely fantastic. It is one of those perfect meatloaf recipes that is not too dense and just enough onion and spice. I make it at least once a month and it is great the night I serve it and even better the next as sandwiches. I used to make this meatloaf casserole recipe ten years ago or more with a group of seniors I used to teach cooking to and it was one of our favorite recipes. I decided…

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

    October 7, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Mister Tipsy and I are huge fans of Chicken Cordon Bleu but it is difficult and time consuming to make. As kids we both love the little frozen ones for an after school snack. We recently tried them again and they just don’t taste the same. You also rarely, if ever, see Chicken Cordon Bleu on restaurant menus. I came up with this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole out of convenience and wanting to cure our craving for this classic recipe. This Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe uses simple ingredients and has a delicious crispy topping using Ritz Crackers and…

    I feel like I am going to get a lot of comments about this recipe because it is not an authentic Polish recipe. If you feel the need to comment please note that I am already coming clean that this Polish Stir Fry is NOT AN AUTHENTIC POLISH RECIPE. Now that we have that clear let me tell you that this Polish Stir Fry is authentically delicious. Not only is it tasty, it is easy and perfect for cozy weather and busy weeknight dinners. This is one of Mr. Tipsy’s most favorite recipes and I love making it because it…

    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…

  • Sizzling Cauliflower With Lemon Butter

    I have a love hate relationship with cauliflower. I love to eat it raw, chopped up in salads, or as a vessel to eat dip but I hate the concept of cauliflower rice and cauliflower crust pizza. I think it smells and it takes my appetite away. I decided to try to make a recipe with some Cauliflower I was sent from my Imperfect Produce order that was cooked, but still had some crunch to it. I came up with this recipe for Sizzling Cauliflower with Lemon Butter and it was a big hit with me. It is very simple…

  • Easy Al Pastor Tacos

    August 9, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I don’t think I have ever met a person who doesn’t like tacos. I personally could eat tacos every single day of the week. I am lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with a taco cart on every corner and a Mexican restaurant every two steps. In fact, I once did a taco crawl in my neighborhood and tried an incredible amount of tacos. You can read that blog post here A Taco Tour of Rogers Park. I have yet to meet a taco I didn’t like. One of my most favorite types of taco is Al Pastor. I…

    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…
