• Sizzling Cauliflower With Lemon Butter

    September 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I have a love hate relationship with cauliflower. I love to eat it raw, chopped up in salads, or as a vessel to eat dip but I hate the concept of cauliflower rice and cauliflower crust pizza. I think it smells and it takes my appetite away. I decided to try to make a recipe with some Cauliflower I was sent from my Imperfect Produce order that was cooked, but still had some crunch to it. I came up with this recipe for Sizzling Cauliflower with Lemon Butter and it was a big hit with me. It is very simple…

    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…

    Tomato Pasta

    June 25, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    The funny story about this Tomato Pasta is that I found the recipe in an old cookbook and decided to make it for my boyfriend at the time. I can’t remember the name of the cookbook now, but the recipe was so good that for years after we broke up, my ex would mention this pasta to me any time I ran into him. I made some changes to the recipe from the original one that I found in the cookbook back then. I think this version of Tomato Pasta is the best one because it uses such simple ingredients…

  • 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…

  • Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions

    November 14, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I received my Imperfect Produce order late last night and included was a beautiful Acorn Squash and a couple of equally as gorgeous Russet Potatoes. I had been thinking of adding a vegetarian recipe to my Holiday collection of recipes and that is when I decided to make a Cheesy Stuffed Acorn Squash with Whipped Potatoes and Caramelized Onions. I ran the idea by my recipe blogger friend The Kitchen Wife and she suggested adding bacon. While bacon is ALWAYS a good idea, I knew I wanted to keep this veggie forward, so I decided to add some salty crunch…

  • 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…

    Summer is in full swing over at Tipsy HQ and the days are LONG! The three kids I cook for / care for are home from an extended trip to Spain and the Summer boredom has already kicked in. Luckily they are signed up for camps the next couple of weeks and school is back in session mid August. That being said, we still have to eat and for some reason in the Summer, someone is ALWAYS hungry. With three kids that are different ages and a few extra neighborhood kids that come straggling in and out of our house…
