All opinions are mine alone. #Nexium24HrGameReady #CollectiveBias It’s football season and we are all about celebrating football Sunday. One of my favorite recipes to make for football Sunday is this Meat Lovers Chili. It has all the spices and its a great main for entertaining all my football loving friends. My favorite way to serve this chili is with all the toppings on a chili or taco bar and let my guests build their own bowls. As we have all gotten older we prefer tailgating at home instead…

    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…

  • 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,…

  • French Onion Soup Bites

    December 11, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I was catering an appetizer themed party this past Saturday and was trying to come up with new ideas for appetizers. As a brand ambassador for Chateau Foods I happen to have an endless supply of dumplings in my freezer and was brainstorming ways to work them into this menu. I saw someone making French Onion Soup over on Instagram and decided to find a way to combine the two. It took me a couple trials to get the recipe for these French Onion Soup Bites perfect, but once I got it right I knew I had to share it…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Creamed Cauliflower Soup With Bacon

    November 7, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    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…

  • All The Northwoods Feels

    January 12, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    While I have been coming to the Northwoods for only the last 7 years or so, the bulk of my visits are in the warm weather months from Memorial Day to Thanksgiving. Two years ago I started to try to make it a tradition to come up in January after the New Year and experience the beloved, “Snow Mobile Season”. While I won’t go into a bunch of facts, (because I don’t know them) Eagle River and the surrounding areas are well known as the Snowmobile Capital Of The World.  There is something like 500 miles of trails and the…
