what's cooking, hot stuff?

I seem to go into a kind of creative hibernation in the summer. Sure, I was playing with a garden this summer, but I wasn't very serious about it, and for whatever reason, when the weather's warm, I'm less inclined to knit, write or collage. Unsurprisingly, I'm also not very inclined to cook in the heat -- between my creative inclinations being under wraps, it's just not that tempting to spend a lot of time in the kitchen with a lot of additional heat and steam and the like.

However, with the cooler evenings, I'm beginning to get the urge to knit and, more importantly to this post, cook again. I'll start planning my next sweater shortly, but for now, I'm getting excited about making real, interesting, complicated food again. No doubt being in California last week also jump-started this urge, since the produce there is so amazing and we had some spectacular meals, both out and at home.

So! I want to cook brisket. Does anyone have a favorite, not-too-fussy recipe?

And, in fact, don't just limit yourself to brisket. What do you like to cook in the fall? Or what's something you always love to cook that you think i might also like?
