  • Italian Sub Chop Sandwiches

    September 20, 2022thetipsyhousewife

    Italian Sub Chop Sandwiches I saw these sandwiches on tik tok being made at a deli in New York. The filling looked very similar to a hoagie dip I make for parties but the dressing looked different. I decided to try making this recipe for Mister Tipsy and football Sunday seemed like the perfect time to give it a try. It was a huge hit and it will definitely be going on our regular appetizer rotation. Made with deli meat and cheese, finely diced veggies like onions and tomatoes and a creamy dressing, this mix makes the perfect sandwich or…

    This Red Wine Slushy is the perfect drink for porch sits.  It is made with lots of fruit so that means its healthy right? It is also a simple, make ahead cocktail that you can prepare in advance for a party. Yesterday I had planned to make this drink and sit on my friend’s deck and enjoy the warm weather. In typical Chicago fashion, as soon as I got done blending up this Red Wine Slushy, the weather turned cold, windy and wet. I can tell you that while this Red Wine Slushy would have been absolutely perfect for that…

    Party Dip

    June 1, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Last week when I was at the lake house our friend mentioned snacking on some dried beef.

I personally am a big fan of party dip. In fact, one of my favorite Aunts always has some kind of homemade dip in her fridge and I love going there. It is such a great snack to eat with veggies or crackers and perfect for busy…

    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…
