Celebrate With Great Joy National Pie Day In Dallas

DSC05160by Steven Doyle

I have these lovely country loving Amish friends who when you see them will regale you with pie.  These are by far the best pie bakers in the pie loving universe, and they do their magic without the means of a modern kitchen. It is a loving relationship that began with a slice of raisin cream pie. This is how all relationships should begin.

Today is National Pie Day, and I believe this springs up several times each year. No matter, it is a wonderful time to grab a slice or two around town, and of course, we have a list.

Malai Pie & Recipe

by Steven Doyle

I have always been enamored by the incredible dishes at Malai Kitchen in West Village in Uptown Dallas, but wanted to share what was probably the best part of any of the meals I have had there – the coconut pie.

I loved the pie so very much that we called Malai and asked for the recipe.  Now we are not normally a recipe loving web site, but this pie is special.  It deserves all the love and attention it can garner.  If you can bake pies, use the recipe.  If you cannot, call them and reserve a pie for your Thanksgiving table.

Did I say it was good?     Continue reading

Helicopter To The State Fair Compliments Of The Palomar Hotel Dallas

by Steven Doyle

As the State Fair of Texas approaches we will start hearing about all sorts of deals and attractions with the Big Tex theme. This one from the Palomar Hotel Dallas is more delicious that a box of Fletcher’s Corny Dogs. They are actually offering two Big Tex packages.

The package for $189, which is a good value, offers a room, DART rail passes to the fair, chef Graham’s triple fried potatoes and cotton candy in the room.  Every room gets use of the corporate gold fish regardless.       Continue reading

Keller: The Land of Milk and Honey

by Steven Doyle

Just days ago I aimed my car west and headed to Keller, which until now has been known for its Babe’s Chicken, at least in my mind. Stepping into boutique restaurant Milk and Honey is like walking up onto the back porch of an Amish couple at supper time, which for the uninitiated, that is a very good thing.

The restaurant actually has a southern gentility to it, and is stocked with trinkets that your grandmother coveted so much. I am talking the needle-point, the glassware, and all the photos that could be stuffed into a trunk. It’s actually very quaint and comforting.            Continue reading
