A note from the owner and baker at the Homemade Cafe in Pepin, a place I've wanted to visit -- haven't gotten there yet, but the maple pumpkin pie on the list below may be enough to make me get there immediately:
I'm Julie Elwell the owner and pie maker at the Homemade Cafe in Pepin, WI.
I liked your recent article in the Rochester Post Bulletin about Wisconsin's Pieway.
