• 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…

  • Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

    January 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I am a collector of vintage cookbooks and recipe binders. Some of my favorites are the church cookbooks that are a collection of old recipes collected from the members and printed and sold as a fundraiser. One recipe that I kept seeing repeated from these cookbooks was a Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole. Something about it intrigued me. After reading through the many recipes for this classic dish, I decided to put my own spin on it. This Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole can be assembled ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal, it is great for a party or potluck…

  • French Onion Soup Bites

    I was catering an appetizer themed party this past Saturday and was trying to come up with new ideas for appetizers. As a brand ambassador for Chateau Foods I happen to have an endless supply of dumplings in my freezer and was brainstorming ways to work them into this menu. I saw someone making French Onion Soup over on Instagram and decided to find a way to combine the two. It took me a couple trials to get the recipe for these French Onion Soup Bites perfect, but once I got it right I knew I had to share it…

  • Simple Salad With An Easy Creamy Italian Dressing

    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…

  • Tipsy’s Top 5 Ways To “Buffet”

    December 21, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    The holidays are HARD! So many parties so little time. I’m the kind of person who has this elaborate vision for how things should look at my events. I used to end up feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and sometimes even angry when I would try to execute my vision for these perfectly staged get togethers. Several years ago I decided to let go of that perfect visual and find ways to actually have fun at my own parties while still making them special. One of the ways I achieved this new Zen Like Tipsy was by incorporating the Buffet into…

  • Tipsy’s Top Five Tips On Learning About Wine

    October 17, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    I used to be an occasional wine drinker for no other reason than the fact that it was there. I was mostly a beer and mixed drink type of person. This was because I knew NOTHING about wine other than I thought I liked only white, cold, crisp wine. My old routine was, have a taste for wine,  go to the store, look for the Sauvignon Blanc section and (GASP)  buy the one with the best looking label that also met my varying price point requirements for that week’s budget. A terrible habit I know. Then I went to work…
