• Salami and Cheddar Beach Snacks

    July 16, 2021thetipsyhousewife

    Salami and Cheddar Beach Snacks Inspiration For years I taught pre school for the Chicago Park District. There was a Grandmother who used to make these for every classroom party. They were so simple, so delicious, didn’t cost a lot of money to make and people went crazy for them. I was meeting a bunch of friends at the beach and I needed to bring a snack and I remembered these mini sandwiches that Grandma made. I whipped up a batch and they turned out to be the BEST thing to eat at the beach, or while swimming. These Salami…

  • The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich

    July 13, 2021thetipsyhousewife

    Meet The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich I watched a cooking show on the food network with my mother where they were making a sandwich similar to this. I love a salty sweet combination. The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich has all the components I love. Great crunch, salty, thinly sliced prosciutto, sweet cantaloupe and peppery arugula. The Ultimate Picnic Sandwich is a great recipe for Summer because it is light, yet filling. It is also very easy to make. There is a full, printable recipe for this sandwich at the end of this post. Few, But Specific Ingredients This recipe requires few ingredients,…

    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…

  • The Chelada

    July 3, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Several years ago on a trip to Mexico, a bartender made me The Chelada one morning after a fun night out the evening before. He promised me The Chelada would cure my hangover. I watched him make the the chelada using beer, clamato juice, lime and a few other of his secret ingredients. When he brought it to me it looked suspiciously like a bloody mary but not as thick as a bloody mary and not decorated with a salad bar of garnishes. I wasn’t sure about it when I first saw it because a bloody mary isn’t my favorite…

    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…
