    Asian Meatballs

    April 10, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    This past week I have been in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona visiting my Aunt and Uncle.  It been an annual trip these last few years and every time I am here, to thank them, I cook them and their friends a five course meal.  Each year there is a different theme for the menu. This year I decided to go with an Asian theme.  Part of the fun of cooking this special meal is discovering new stores in the area to purchase the ingredients.  This year was no exception. I found a spectacular Asian Market in Phoenix and we spent a…

    Mr. Tipsy has Crohn’s disease and a couple of times a year he does a health reset and tries as hard as possible to reduce carbs/sugar and all that other stuff that is supposedly not great for you. We are by no means super strict Keto crazy but I do try to adjust recipes to meet his needs. Because of his line of work, Mr. Tipsy often has to eat dinner on the go and meatballs are one of his favorite things to take for lunch because they are easy for him to heat and eat. Living in Chicago we…

  • Meatballs & Minis

    October 5, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    One of my favorite products to cook with are the Chateau Foods Dumplings. Chateau Dumplings are a traditional Czech dumplings in both bread and potato dumplings. The bread is typically made with a roast pork and served with gravy. The potato dumplings are traditionally large and served with butter and dill. Chateau makes a mini version that I LOVE to keep on hand in the freezer. They are super versatile, and can be eaten on their own.  I like to use them in place of pasta, rice or any of my other typical carb components. I can best describe them…

  • Big Mac Meatballs! I Repeat, Big Mac Meatballs! ~ How To Make Junk Food At Home When You’re Cutting Carbs ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    June 19, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A Big Mac is the best isn’t it? But who needs all that extra bread.  Not to mention that whenever we do splurge on McDonald’s it just doesn’t taste that great anymore. Except the Coca-Cola, why is it so good at McDonald’s?! Mr. Tipsy tries to eat low carb when he can so  I decided to challenge myself with recreating the Big Mac at home with no/low carbs. I took all my favorite parts of a Big Mac and created these Big Mac Meatballs. I was shocked how easy it was to get it just right. I tested out this…

  • Cleaning Up My Act ~ Take Out Menu Twist

    January 19, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I am getting to the age where I love staying in as much, if not more, than going out.  One of our favorite Date Nights is to order in take out, curl up on the couch, and watch our favorite TV shows.  This USED to be a money saver as well.  I don’t know about you, but the last time I had Asian Take Out delivered to my door, the bill was over $40! Not to mention that it really wasn’t that tasty, it was loaded with tons of ingredients we didn’t need, like MSG, Salt, and Oils. Plus there…
