    Yup, they've got good press and word of mouth on their side. Last week I purchased the Pecan Chocolate Bourbon pie for a dinner party. I'm not a big fan of pies but it was good, but to me not like the best ever pastry or even anything close. To be fair it was served cold and was boxed all day before eating.

    One note is that they also sell items other then pies and I'm told that they regularly bring in bread from a bakery on Arthur Ave.

        With the advent of cable, we here in the Megalopolis are beginning to get our rightful due!

        May I now suggest that B.F. challenge Mama Mina in Fairfield to a lasagna Throwdown?

        Talk about letting the air out of a ballon with a howitzer. When the judges chose Flay's you could hear the vacuum through the speakers.

        But in fairness, Michelle handled the result with A+++ class.

        Now if the Engineers can just fix the issue of the map on the left. Michelle's is "B" and what the heck is "A"?

            Not quite, $26. Still expensive.
