My Grandma's Kitchen

Many weekends of my childhood were spent at my Grandparents' beach house in Virginia Beach. My Grandparents lived there all year round; and it was a place I called home. It was a home where my entire family would gather during the day on the beach, and at night around the dinner table. It was filled with the most wonderful smells from the ocean to the kitchen. Everything was better there. (I promise, even the ice tasted different.) It was a home filled with the most amazing Love of family and friends.

My Grandma had many signature dishes that she Loved to make for us. (She is one of the best cooks I have ever known.) So when I finally discovered my Love for cooking, it was my Grandma who shared all of her recipes with me, and who helped me fill my first recipe box. One of my favorite recipes that my Grandma makes for our family, is her beef brisket. It is amazing. It is simple. It is delicious. It fills the house with the most intoxicating smells. And it is the perfect meal for a family weekend at home. (Are you drooling yet?)

Grandma's Beef Brisket Recipe


1 beef brisket (size depends on number of people)
1 packet of Lipton onion soup mix
1 bunch of carrots
1 bunch of potatoes
12 oz of Coca-Cola
Oven bag

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put brisket in oven bag and then in a casserole dish.
Sprinkle Lipton's soup mix all over brisket.
Add chopped carrots and whole potatoes.
Pour 12 oz of Coca Cola all over everything inside the oven bag.
Tie oven bag closed.
Poke a few holes in the bag.
Depending on how big your beef brisket is, the cooking time varies.
Basically, if you are cooking dinner for 4 people, 1.5 hours. 6 people, 2 hours. 8+, 2.5 hours.
My lovely husband does the carving.
I do the plating.

Enjoy my Loves!


  1. Yes, he does eat like a king. I have never fixed a beef brisket before but this seems very interesting and pretty easy too. Now I use a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix in my pot roast but never heard of the coke addition. Can't wait to try this one. :) And what a lucky girl you were growing up at Grandma's Virginia Beach beach house.
