    August 9, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I don’t think I have ever met a person who doesn’t like tacos. I personally could eat tacos every single day of the week. I am lucky enough to live in a neighborhood with a taco cart on every corner and a Mexican restaurant every two steps. In fact, I once did a taco crawl in my neighborhood and tried an incredible amount of tacos. You can read that blog post here A Taco Tour of Rogers Park. I have yet to meet a taco I didn’t like. One of my most favorite types of taco is Al Pastor. I…

    January 14, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best ones. This Shredded Chicken Taco recipe is one I have always made in my crockpot and it is a quick and easy recipe for busy weeknights. It is also perfect for parties and you need to cook for a crowd. While it works perfectly in the crockpot I recently started making it in my Instant Pot on the days I forget to take something out of the freezer for dinner. I have made this shredded chicken taco recipe from frozen chicken thighs and it also works really well. You will need a…

  • Taco Pie

    Food brings comfort to many in difficult situations. It helps people who are suffering by nourishing them and taking a chore off their list when just breathing seems impossible. It helps people who know friends and family that are suffering by giving them something to do in order to try and bring comfort to people they care about in an uncomfortable situation. Recent events in my own life had me thinking and are the reason for this Taco Pie recipe. It seemed like a comforting recipe that was simple, inexpensive, easy to heat up and something that would keep well…

    If you have followed me for some time you probably know that I often talk about my Mom, Original Tipsy and how she instilled her love and talent for cooking in me. One person I haven’t mentioned is my Dad who shares an equal love of food and cooking. My Dad makes the best bread and lately has been experimenting with recipes that I am quite surprised by seeing, as the man claims to have never eaten an egg.  My memories of my Dad cooking always go back to classic, simple food that I always crave. I find it funny…

  • 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…
