 NOTES : Only the best ingredients pass the test at Pullman Bay; if hte
 fresh fruits and nuts delivered to the restaurant don't live up to baker
 Hannah Heckler’s finicky standards, she sends them back.  But the
 pickiness pays off.  Not only do they taste good, they look good, too. 
 “I have yet to see any display of pies that looks as nice as ours,” says
 Heckler.  Customers agree; they return for $1.69 slices of sugar cream,
 butterscotch and sugar-free varieties, which keeps Heckler and Janet
 Crouch, Pullman Bay’s other baker, busy.  They turned out 264 pies last
 Thanksgiving for guests who special-order them.  Pullman Bay, 117
