Baked corned beef with honey mustard glaze turns out moist and juicy with a sticky sweet glaze on top that no one can resist.

For as long as I can remember, my family has enjoyed a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner on St. Patrick’s day. However, a while back, this recipe for baked corned beef in the oven caught my eye and I saved the recipe to try.

Baked Corned Beef in the Oven

Oven baked corned beef turns out tender and juicy every time I make it. There were six of us together for this meal the first time I made it and every single person requested seconds. Even my rarely-excited-about-meat child all said that they “loved” this corned beef.

Unfortunately, there weren’t enough for seconds for everyone, but I learned my lesson. If you’re able to fill the freezer with a couple of extra roasts whenever corned beef goes on sale – do it.

The first time I tried this baked corned beef in the oven, I knew right away that it would be making an appearance at our St. Patrick’s Day dinners for years to come. As it turns out, I keep corned beef stashed in the freezer now, just to make this recipe whenever the craving hits.

Our favorite way to enjoy this corned beef is alongside a generous serving of Irish Colcannon for a complete meal. Don’t forget to reserve a bit of the glaze for a dipping sauce.

Honey Mustard Corned Beef

I’ve always enjoyed corned beef but it’s never been the kind of meal I dream of at night. When first I tasted this corned beef with honey mustard glaze caramelized over it, it completely knocked my socks off.

The very simple glaze of honey and coarse-grain mustard added a beautiful sweetness and subtle tang to the salted meat. The flavor combination of the glaze with the cured meat hit all the right notes for me.

A little brown sugar sprinkled over the top before baking ties all the different elements of the recipe together.

While the honey mustard flavor might not be strictly traditional as far as Irish recipes go, I think it preserves the familiarity of corned beef while making it even tastier. That’s a win in my book.

Lightened Up Healthier Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Chicken parmesan is always a crowd favorite, but sometimes I want a dinner that’s a little lighter. This lightened up healthier chicken parm recipe is so simple and the flavor is delicious.

In fact, I’ll go so far as to say that you won’t even miss the mounds of mozzarella, piles of pasta or the sauce. Even though we have a traditional chicken parmesan recipe that is fantastic, I think we prefer this healthier version. I love how light and fresh it tastes and the chicken is crazy moist. It’s nice to have a meal where you can still eat great tasting food without feeling weighed down and completely stuffed afterwards. I think everyone should make this parmesan chicken!

What is Parmesan Chicken?

Parmesan chicken (or chicken Parmesan or chicken Parmigiana) is a dish that consists of breaded chicken breast covered in tomato sauce and mozzarella, parmesan, or provolone cheese. Parmesan chicken originated in Italy. We are sort of breaking all the rules with this lightened up version except for the breaded chicken part, but it’s so dang good!

Then, just turn on the crockpot and wait. Cooking at low temperature for 8 hours yields the most tender, pull-apart forkfuls of corned beef you could hope for.

Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream is some of the creamiest ice cream I have ever made and for the record, it is worlds away from the mint-flavored ice creams you can find in a store.

Pure peppermint deliciousness from start to finish without even a hint of a chemical or mass-produced flavor.

Homemade Peppermint Ice Cream

Peppermint Ice Cream is surprisingly light, sweet, and minty. I think I dipped a spoon into the freezer container about 15 times the first time I made this and I’m not even a huge fan of peppermint!

This is a spectacular combination of winter flavors and summer refreshment. I’ve been making this ice cream year-round for over ten years now.

With no advance planning required, these pan-seared chicken thighs require just a few minutes of work in the kitchen.

This recipe is a great one for using dried spices; as the chicken slowly cooks, it will absorb all of those Italian flavors. There is no need to marinate the meat, simply sprinkle each thigh with seasonings and drop it in the pan.
