    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.

    Instant Pot Creamy Potato Soup

    June 5, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    We all love the Instant Pot. It took me awhile to get used to this handy kitchen appliance but now I am Instant Pot addicted. I make tons of recipes in mine including breakfast, lunch and dinners. One of the Instant Pot’s best uses is for making soup. I have always been a big fan of slow simmering soups cooking away on the stove but some days this is just not possible. The Instant Pot makes it possible to have an all day soup recipe done from start to finish in thirty minutes or less. Mr. Tipsy and I love…

    My Aunt has been talking about this recipe for Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire for years. It was the first recipe she made for my Uncle on their one year wedding anniversary.  It has now been over 40 years and it is still a recipe that she makes to this day.  I was visiting for a few days and I asked her to show me how she makes this Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire and she did. Boy was it delicious. It is a very simple recipe that requires minimal ingredients, it has such great flavor. It is perfect for special occasions but it…

  • 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…

  • Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

    December 29, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    The belief that homemade Chicken Noodle Soup can cure sickness is not lost on me. It is thought that when you make a broth from bones, the nutrients from the bones can help heal your gut where they say that all sickness starts. I don’t know if this is true, but this Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup tastes so good that I believe it has magical healing properties. I used to make this soup before I got my Instant Pot and it would have to sit on the stove all day long simmering away. When we got the instant pot,…

  • 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…

  • Chicken In Lemon Cream Sauce

    November 6, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This recipe is fairly simple, but it is definitely not a easy weeknight meal. This is a nice dinner to make when you have some time to pour a glass of wine, put your favorite show on television and are prepared to spend some time in the kitchen.  I can’t remember where or when I have a Chicken In A Lemon Cream Sauce, but I know I have and that is why I wanted to make it.  The recipe sort of came about in a Fridge Forage situation, these are the ingredients I had on hand. I needed to make…
