Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Dark Chocolate Stout Cream Pie Recipe

Thankgiving is about the turkey, right?  Stuffing?  Of course.  Sweet Potatoes?  Damn straight!  For you, maybe, but not me.  I'm all about the desserts.  Baked goods are rare in these parts so when I get my hands on something in a pie tin I tend to overdo it quite a bit.  Like a "give me the pie, give me a fork and get out of my face" kind of thing.  Here is one of my favorites that combine my 2 favorite things to shove in my face .... pie and beer.  Easy to make, easy to eat.  Cheers - Bon
