• Pierogi Soup

    November 11, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    My family and I get together once a year in the Spring to make Pierogi. Most years we make well over 700+ pierogi. We look forward to the day every year and half way through we wonder why we EVER decided to make this a tradition. The work is tedious but the time together is what we look forward to and enjoy. Sadly, last year we didn’t make pierogi for various reasons, but also because we sort of needed a break. I have had to resort to buying pierogi the last year as I had depleted my homemade supply a…

    You may or may not know that I receive a weekly produce delivery called Imperfect Produce. You can read about Imperfect Produce by clicking here, but basically they are a produce home delivery service that sells the produce that farmers can’t. The produce is totally fine, it just may not LOOK perfect so grocery stores won’t buy it.  This delivery service is  super affordable and I have been so pleased with the offerings, but more importantly it has encouraged me to cook, and eat, more fruits and veggies. Today we had some Cauliflower and other veggies on hand, it was…

  • The Lost Recipes of The 1950’s Housewives ~Chopped Steak~

    August 25, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    Someone I know always orders the chopped steak at restaurants because he is afraid it will be taken off the menu and go extinct if people don’t order it.  I’m not exactly sure where the concern comes from, but clearly the dish evokes a memory for that person that he doesn’t want to see die. I think we all have certain foods that are connected to memories of a good time or a specific person and with the lapse in teaching cooking skills to recent generations, a lot of these recipes have literally and figuratively died with their keepers. Thinking…
