• Stuffing Waffles

    November 8, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Stuffing Waffles, they are a thing, trust me. I am all for giving credit where credit is due, but for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw this idea for the first time. I know I did not think it up organically but I did create a recipe of my own for it. You may have never heard of Stuffing Waffles yourself, but they are a great way to use up leftover stuffing and make a great base for leftover turkey sandwiches. Think cranberry mayo too! After making these today, I was also thinking that Stuffing Waffles…

  • Making The Perfect, NO MESS, BLT Sandwich ~ A Tipsy Tuesday Tip

    May 22, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have spent many years working in all sorts of kitchens. Because of this I know many tips and cooking hacks. One of the best tips I was taught was how to cook bacon in your oven. The oven method is the BEST way to cook bacon. The oven cooks the bacon easily, there is no grease splatter to clean up, and it is a great way to add  unique seasonings and flavors to your bacon. Plus you can make a TON at once. Perfect for hosting. BLT’s are probably one of our favorite weeknight meals, so I came up…

  • The Perfect Sandwich ~A Tipsy Tuesday Tip~

    May 7, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I have to admit, I am a sandwich snob.

One day I made a sandwich for an employee and word spread about how good it was and soon, the lines were so long at the deli during lunch time that my department manager put a stop to my sandwich making days. I’ve had a couple dabbles into the grocery business in my…

  • Three Ways to Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day The Tipsy Way, By Eating

    March 14, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    For many years Saint Patrick’s Day was my most dreaded holiday of the year. I used to tend bar part-time (yes, yet another job) and nothing said amateur night (or day) more than Saint Patrick’s Day. It was a day and night filled with slinging drinks, sloppy drunks, no tips, and suburbanites wearing tee shirts that proclaimed they were “CHI-RISH” UGH! On  my own, I refused to ever celebrate the holiday except for the years I spent in my friends yard during the South Side Irish Parade. I don’t count that as celebrating because it was basically beer drinking, fire…

  • Tipsy’s Top Five Places to Eat In The Suburbs ~ Western Suburbs Edition

    November 3, 2017thetipsyhousewife

    As a life long city girl, I used to think the suburban food scene was a mix of TGI Friday’s (are those still around?) mall food courts and pick up joints for over 50 divorced people.  I am humble enough to admit that I was dead wrong. A couple of weeks ago, my older Golden Retriever tore his ACL and we had to temporarily move in with my parent’s while he prepared and then recovered from surgery. Not the best situation, but I used the opportunity to explore the Food Scene of the Western Burbs.  I was pleasantly surprised at…
