• Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

    October 7, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Mister Tipsy and I are huge fans of Chicken Cordon Bleu but it is difficult and time consuming to make. As kids we both love the little frozen ones for an after school snack. We recently tried them again and they just don’t taste the same. You also rarely, if ever, see Chicken Cordon Bleu on restaurant menus. I came up with this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole out of convenience and wanting to cure our craving for this classic recipe. This Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe uses simple ingredients and has a delicious crispy topping using Ritz Crackers and…

    Mr. Tipsy has been suggesting this for dinner for years. It always sounded so weird to me and I couldn’t understand why he kept asking me to make it. I come to find out, after more than a decade together, that this is a dish his Mom used to make for him. His Mom is no longer with us, but her food was a legacy she left us. Before she passed she gave me her cookbook bible, the one you slip all the recipes you cut out of magazines and the ones you ask friends for that are written on…

It was then that I remembered a friend I used to work with whose Mom would send these awesome crispy potato tacos to work with him for us to…

  • Show Of Hands If You Know What Gravy Bread Is

    June 30, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    Being from Chicago, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a staple in our diet. I have so many favorites and I like each one for different reasons. Everything makes a difference in the making of  a good beef. The seasoning, the quality of the meat, the spice, the heat and the bread. The main reason why I love Italian Beef’s are because of the gravy soaked bread. There are even some beef stands in Chicago where you can JUST get a gravy bread. They take the Italian bread and soak it in the beef au jus and it is a delicious soggy…
