Shady Pines Resort is hosting their own version of the Great British Baking Show competition to highlight Florida’s iconic dessert…Key Lime Pie. Five competitors of varying age, background, temperament, and experience vie for an all-inclusive vacation as first prize. It is described as quite a culinary coup to get former TV chef, now food critic, Chad Coleman to agree to judge, and since Ellie has made a name for herself with her last success uncovering a murderous resort guest, she’s been asked by the resort owner to act as a judge in a runner-up contest…delicious, she thinks!

These are strange times and we are all trying to adjust. Shannon Escobedo and her two therapy dogs, Doxie and Fozzy, used to go to two Fresno County Libraries, one of them being Reedley, and the kids could read to the dogs. But of course that isn’t happening now, so Shannon started a virtual version. I chatted with her recently about the Read to a Dog Program, and about this new twist.

In Elkview, Alaska, Charlotte “Charlie” Cooke has taken over the Bear Claw Diner, formerly run by her mom. Mom and Dad are on a European cruise while Charlie keeps the 24-hour diner going, serving delicious food. She hasn’t made many suggestions, especially to the food. Chef Oliver is opposed to the smallest change, unless it’s his idea. Adding chocolate to bear claws? A travesty!

Marissa Raigoza is part of a group that asked that same question and came up with Books, Beers, and Buddies in Fresno who meet at Goldstein’s Mortuary & Delicatessen. KRL took some time to sit down and chat with her about this interesting idea.
