Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful. Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Glazed Corn Beef and Cabbage with Horseradish Cream Sauce


I have a bit of a backlog of recipes that I am working through posting as I had another round in the hospital recently which always throws a wrench in the works when it comes to regular blog posts. I am just about caught up now, which is a relief.

We prepared a few days late St. Patrick's Day meal. I followed this recipe for the most part, but skipped the potatoes entirely and we cooked the carrots separately. The only reason for that was I had planned on skipping the carrots as well, but in the end we prepared some as they are tasty and add a nice bright color to the dish.


One thing to keep in mind is that you need a very large pot to fit all this food.


The corned beef has a delicious brown sugar and mustard glaze. I forgot to take a picture of the horseradish cream sauce but it was tasty too. I felt it could've been thinned out a bit with some milk as mine was a bit thick, but that is a person preference. All in all, it was a delicious and beautiful meal. Enjoy!

Glazed Corn Beef and Cabbage with Horseradish Cream Sauce
Serves about 6

Ingredients:
  • For the Corned Beef:
  • 1 (3 lb.) corned beef brisket with seasoning packet
  • 10 small red potatoes
  • 5 large carrots, peeled and sliced into 3-inch chunks
  • 1 head cabbage, outer leaves removed, and cut into small wedges
  • For the Horseradish Sour Cream:
  • 1 cup sour cream (light sour cream is fine)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. drained horseradish, more or less to taste
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • For the Brown Sugar Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder

Directions:
  1. Put the corned beef and seasonings from the packet in a very large pot, large enough to hold all of the vegetables too.
  2. Cover the brisket with water, place the lid on the pot, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cook for 2.5 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make the Horseradish Sour Cream. Combine the sour cream, horseradish, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, and parsley in a small bowl. Stir to combine, cover and chill until serving time.
  4. Prepare your veggies. Do not core the cabbage. The core will help hold the cabbage wedges together as it cooks.
  5. After 2.5 hours, add the potatoes and carrots to the pot. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
  6. Add the cabbage to the pot and allow it to cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375*F.
  8. Make the glaze. In a small saucepan, combine all of the glaze ingredients and stir over medium heat for five minutes.
  9. Remove the brisket from the pot, trim off any large fatty pieces still remaining, and discard. Leave the veggies in the pot for now.
  10. Place the brisket in a baking pan, and pour the warm glaze over the brisket.
  11. Place the glazed brisket in the warm oven, and cook for about 10 minutes, basting a couple of times with the run off glaze.
  12. If desired, turn on the broiler to crisp up the glaze just a bit before removing the brisket from the oven.
  13. Slice the brisket and serve alongside the vegetables with a hefty dose of the horseradish sour cream.

  1. That looks sooo good! I've been craving some corned beef. I'm intriuged by the horse radish cream sauce. I'll have to try that!

  3. I made this recipe for corn beef and cabbage. It is actually my usual way to cook it with exception to the glaze. This time I used the glaze! It was excellent! It really enhanced the corn beef. I didn’t make the horseradish sauce this time but I will the next time.

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious! You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it. Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty. Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
