I corned my first beef brisket this week. After 8 days of marinating in brine and pickling spices, I cooked 4 lbs of it off today in a slow cooker. 1.5 hours on High and 3 hours on Low. When cooking I added a tbs of pickling spices and put water about an inch above the brisket. The result
Taste is through the f'in roof.

I love this thread for many reasons. More for the stuff people make at home than for the pictures of restaurant plates, but those are very nice as well and between the jealousy and inspiration they provoke, I'm always glad to find them here. What's most important to me is what tasty food brings to the plate when getting together with friends and family, and for all to enjoy. Keep posting your pictures!!!
Even if you are an occasional foodie like me, check out this movie: Step Up To The Plate trailer - YouTube

i went to oktoberfest in the old world village of HB on sunday. my daughter watched the dachsund races while i had a pretzel, bratwurst and strudel with a spaten oktoberfest. it was better tasting than i expected so i didn't take a pic until a few chomps in...
then tonight, i made a purple and new potato pizza with homemade pesto, smashed garlic and sauteed cremini mushrooms.

Love these pics. I don't live in Surf City, I mean Huntington Beach, lol, but very close to it, and it's become my second home from home, and almost my favorite beach, which is weird for me to say, lol, because I am from Santa Monica and there is a rivalry between L.A County beaches and O.C beaches. lol.

I would post a picture, lol, but I don't post pictures of me here, haha, I am shy. I think HB is still going to do another at least another round of Oktoberfest this weekend and good food will be had.

so it was my mother-in-law's birthday, she passed away two and a half weeks ago... on grandparents day with the family and my daughter around her... but she would've been 70. i remember she once mailed me home made madeleines even though she lived just an hour away in carlsbad. they were delicious and i'd never had anyone mail me home baked goods before. so i made some myself today as a sort of remembrance.
i'm bringing a dozen down tomorrow for when i visit my father in law, sister in law and her kids.
