• Italian Sausage Sandwich

    June 26, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    It is FINALLY Summer here in the Midwest and in my house it wouldn’t be Summer without a great Italian Sausage Sandwich from the grill. Except of course when you can’t figure out how to put on the new propane tank. I make these sandwiches every year on my grill and wouldn’t you know it, the day I decide to make them, Mister Tipsy isn’t home and I cant figure out how to attach the propane tank. The good news is I was still able to make this Italian Sausage Sandwich on the stove, in my cast iron skillet and…

    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…

    White Cheddar Bacon Burgers

    June 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I know that it’s all the rage to put all the toppings you possibly can on a cheeseburger, but when it comes to burgers I think simple is best. I make these White Cheddar Bacon Burgers on the grill when the weather cooperates  and they are always a hit with whomever I make them for. These White Cheddar Bacon Burgers have very few ingredients but the few they do are quality ingredients which is what makes them extra special. The two ingredients that are a MUST are: Good Quality Cheddar Cheese Good Quality Ground Beef I like to buy the…

    Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups

    June 4, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Summer weather has arrived in the Midwest, at least some days it actually feels like Summer. For Mister Tipsy and Me, this means beach days, and lots of time sitting on our deck. For others it means feeding their kids all day long. Summer is a great time to keep easy to grab and eat snacks and meals on hand. These Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups are just one of many easy to make, and easy to eat recipes I always have in my fridge in the Summer months. What I love about these Mexican Tortilla Roll Ups is how versatile…

  • The Ultimate Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

    May 31, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    As you may or may not know depending on how long you have followed me, I am a brand ambassador for a local Chicago, 92 year old, family business called Chateau Dumplings.  I work closely with them to develop recipes using their products, photographing them and managing their social media and marketing events. The partnership was a natural one, as I grew up eating these delicious Czech inspired dumplings most of my life. Traditionally, the bread dumplings were served steamed with a Czech recipe for roast pork. You also served gravy and  red cabbage or sauerkraut with this dish. If…

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…

  • Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire

    April 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    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…
