Dr Brown's Root Beer

Beer is a major ingredient in a lot of recipes. Guinness, in particular – not to mention other dark stouts – works its way into quite a few baked goods. It pairs especially well with chocolate because of its naturally dark, chocolaty flavor, so Guinness Cupcakes and Guinness Chocolate Cake are fairly common.

Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Bars

Today was the first cool (ok, cool-ish) day of the fall out in my neck of the woods and it seemed like the perfect excuse to bring out a fall favorite: pumpkin pie.
