    White Cheddar Bacon Burgers

    June 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I know that it’s all the rage to put all the toppings you possibly can on a cheeseburger, but when it comes to burgers I think simple is best. I make these White Cheddar Bacon Burgers on the grill when the weather cooperates  and they are always a hit with whomever I make them for. These White Cheddar Bacon Burgers have very few ingredients but the few they do are quality ingredients which is what makes them extra special. The two ingredients that are a MUST are: Good Quality Cheddar Cheese Good Quality Ground Beef I like to buy the…

    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…

  • Memorial Day Weekend Ideas

    May 22, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    *I was provided a gift card from Tony’s Fresh Market to shop for these items and include them in a blog post. However, all opinions are my own and I shop at Tony’s weekly. Memorial Day for most means parties, bbq’s and chilling out with a cold beer. Unfortunately for a lot of people the holiday weekend also means they have to work and they don’t get to enjoy the weekend the way others do. It has been my family’s Memorial Day tradition to head up to our lake house in Michigan for the holiday but Mr. Tipsy is one…

  • Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire

    April 11, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    My Aunt has been talking about this recipe for Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire for years. It was the first recipe she made for my Uncle on their one year wedding anniversary.  It has now been over 40 years and it is still a recipe that she makes to this day.  I was visiting for a few days and I asked her to show me how she makes this Chicken Swiss Extraordinaire and she did. Boy was it delicious. It is a very simple recipe that requires minimal ingredients, it has such great flavor. It is perfect for special occasions but it…

  • Gyro Meatballs

    January 15, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    Mr. Tipsy has Crohn’s disease and a couple of times a year he does a health reset and tries as hard as possible to reduce carbs/sugar and all that other stuff that is supposedly not great for you. We are by no means super strict Keto crazy but I do try to adjust recipes to meet his needs. Because of his line of work, Mr. Tipsy often has to eat dinner on the go and meatballs are one of his favorite things to take for lunch because they are easy for him to heat and eat. Living in Chicago we…

  • Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole

    January 2, 2019thetipsyhousewife

    I am a collector of vintage cookbooks and recipe binders. Some of my favorites are the church cookbooks that are a collection of old recipes collected from the members and printed and sold as a fundraiser. One recipe that I kept seeing repeated from these cookbooks was a Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole. Something about it intrigued me. After reading through the many recipes for this classic dish, I decided to put my own spin on it. This Cheeseburger & Fries Casserole can be assembled ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal, it is great for a party or potluck…

  • 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,…
