    Copycat CPK Kung Pao Spaghetti

    Copycat California Pizza Kitchen Kung Pao Spaghetti I love California Pizza Kitchen. CPK has some of my favorite food. My very favorite dish that I order every time I go is the Kung Pao Spaghetti. I think that I have finally mastered a copycat CPK Kung Pao spaghetti recipe. This version is a little more family friendly. The dried chilis that are part of the CPK version are eliminated from this recipe. I added crispy chicken tenders to my copycat CPK Kung Pao spaghetti. You can use chicken or if you like you can use shrimp. While this recipe is…

    Tomato Pasta

    June 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    The funny story about this Tomato Pasta is that I found the recipe in an old cookbook and decided to make it for my boyfriend at the time. I can’t remember the name of the cookbook now, but the recipe was so good that for years after we broke up, my ex would mention this pasta to me any time I ran into him. I made some changes to the recipe from the original one that I found in the cookbook back then. I think this version of Tomato Pasta is the best one because it uses such simple ingredients…

Our little outdoor space is another added living space in the Summer months. We do most of our cooking and dining there and we couldn’t love it more.I recently learned about cooking with Mazola® Corn Oil instead of Olive Oil and…

  • Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese

    April 14, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have a confession to make, this was my first time making Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese.  Truth be told, I never like Macaroni & Cheese when it is homemade. I prefer the box of Kraft Mac -n- Cheese over any homemade that I ever had. The number one reason being, that it gets grainy and thick and it is never creamy. I have had a few great experiences making pasta in the Instant Pot, so I came up with a plan for this Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese and decided to give it a whirl. I was shocked at…

  • Easy Vodka Sauce

    December 28, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is a recipe I have been making for years. When I had it for the first time I was sure that it was some overly complicated, intricate recipe because it was so absolutely delicious. When I asked the original recipe creator for the recipe I couldn’t believe that it was actually a really Easy Vodka Sauce recipe. I made some adjustments over the years and  I think now that it is practically perfect. I have to be honest, this Vodka Sauce is not healthy, what makes it delicious is lots of butter, cream and cheese. It is definitely a…

  • Macaroni & Hamburger Soup

    December 4, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    There are tons of versions of this easy Macaroni & Hamburger Soup on Pinterest. It goes by many names, my most favorite being, “Bachelor Stew”. The whole idea of this soup is ease and affordability. My version reminds me of how soup in a can USED to taste. Before they added all the chemicals. I make this soup on the stove because I have time and I am at home, but this is a GREAT recipe for your slow cooker if you don’t have time to stand at the stove all day. I will include a slow cooker step in…
