Jewish Grandma's Best Beef Brisket
This is truly fabulous. I used Better th*n Boullion, kosher salt, and dried onion for my base in addition to the list here...Also added carrots (baby peeled), celery, and extra fresh garlic and fresh onions. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes. I did one major thing different: For the first 2 1/2 hours, I simmered it in a covered deep saute skillet on the stovetop. Then, I transferred it for the remaining 2 hours to the oven, covered at 260*F. I found that this made a thicker, richer liquor. At the end of 4 hours, we ate (it was terrific), and I left it in the oven for another 3 hours on 200*F and it was even better. I bet by tomorrow it will be so tender that it will melt in the mouth. Thank you so kindly for sharing!

Fresh Cherry Cobbler
This is fantastic...I don't know why people criticize it except that I used natural turbinado sugar (to taste). A neighbor down the street has a wonderful Montmorency cherry tree. No one except the birds seem too interested it its fruit so I asked permission to pick the exchange for sharing some of what I made....picking them and pitting them took the longest obviously, but I used Martha Stewarts paper clip pitting technique and I got pretty fast at it (5 cups of cherries in one hour). Montmorency cherries are slightly sweeter than most sour cherries so require less sugar---and I have a real sweet tooth. Yet-- I can eat them right off the tree without taste really is subjective. I baked it for only 40-45 min and it was golden and perfect. I like the buttery cakey makes it less dry like a lot of cobblers. I took 1/3 of it to the neighbors who let me pick their cherries and decided to make's a sure hit with us! So so so Simple!!!! THANK YOU! ;)
