BooBoo Bean Bakery and Café

by Lorie Lewis Ham


Here at KRL we love to find unique places whether they be shops, cafes, or coffee shops. Recently we discovered one that also had a very unique name—BooBoo Bean Bakery and Café located in Fresno. It opened in January of 2018. I took some time to chat with the Café’s owner Jenny Rivera and the timing couldn't have been more perfect as they also offer holiday meals you can take home for the family--all of the great home cooking without any of the work.

Since then Aimee’s has stayed a staple in the downtown that has welcomed some new businesses and said farewell to others. Situated on the corner of McCall and High Street, it’s one of the first storefronts you see when entering the downtown. The friendly window decorations and writing that states “Cupcakes” with a heart and then “Candy” invites you in to indulge or to satisfy a craving.

How I Met My Dinner: Pies For The Holidays

by Alicia Lieu



I have very limited memories of pie from my childhood. In my family, fruit was mostly consumed as a dessert or snack, always in its raw form, and never cooked. Pie was something I associated with my Strawberry Shortcake Atari game where I had to avoid the bad guy, the Purple Pie Man. I discovered Marie Callender’s pies sometime during high school and I became addicted to their Fresh Strawberry pie.

The Beauty of a Bread Machine

by Nivedita Harish



The bread machine is a modern invention that does not get half the credit it deserves. When you compare bread machines to blenders, toasters and coffee makers, they are usually the last praised appliance in the kitchen. If you think about it, it really is a shame. Great kitchen appliances are praised since they make your life simpler. Making bread is one of the most labor intensive things you do inside your kitchen, and bread machines take the time consuming process out of that, making it easy and fast.
