    Broccoli Cheddar Salad

    August 28, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    One of my favorite things to do is to make a big salad and eat it during the week for lunch and send some with Mister Tipsy for his lunches at work. Mister Tipsy’s Dad also enjoys having a salad on hand therefore I experiment with making different kinds of salad dressings and trying different combinations of vegetables. I started making this Broccoli Cheddar Salad a few years ago and it is always a fan favorite. This particular variation of Broccoli Cheddar Salad has toasted pumpkin seeds and a mustard based dressing but you can add any kind of crunch…

    Seven Layer Salad

    July 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have been in a salad state of mind for the last few weeks. I haven’t been home much to have access to my little grill and I just can’t bring myself to heat up the house with a hot stove or oven. This is why I have been making mostly no cook salads for dinner like this Seven Layer Salad I made today for dinner. This Seven Layer Salad is a salad I used to have to make when I worked in the deli of a local grocery store. This was one of the most popular recipes we sold…

    Asian Inspired Pasta Salad

    July 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I had an idea for this Asian Inspired Pasta Salad for a few weeks now and I spent some time sorting out the recipe in my head before actually creating it.  I knew I wanted this pasta salad to be slightly sweet and have super crunchy vegetables, but I wasn’t sure about the rest. I didn’t decide all the ingredients for this recipe until I was actually in the store. I spotted the creamy poppy seed dressing that I used in this and built the rest of the pasta salad around it. I also had the idea to add mini…

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…

  • 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…

  • A Salad For Everyone

    August 15, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    A lot of people are not eating carbs anymore. My Keto food blogging friends are blowing up social media with their cheese, veggie and meat recipes and people are loving it. Clearly I am not on the Keto train but I do have an appreciation for it. I often entertain and I know there are going to be times that I need to make food that makes everyone happy so I decided to create a salad for everyone. The salad I came up with is inspired by an Italian Sub Sandwich and can be made two ways with most of…

    Let’s face it, once you reach a certain age, the idea of a night on the town loses its appeal. Frankly at 41 years old, I am TIRED at the end of the day and at 44 years old, Mr. Tipsy is pretty much senior citizen status. We don’t always feel like leaving the house after a long week of working. Because of Mr. Tipsy’s schedule at work, our days to go out on date night are Sundays or Mondays. Long ago I made it a steadfast rule to not have to comb my hair or put on a bra…
