Thankfully, there&rsquo;s a place right here in Kansas that makes serving my favorite dessert, well, as easy as pie.&nbsp;MarCon Pies&nbsp;in Washington bakes 500-plus fruit, nut, crunch, cream, cheesecake and specialty pies every day, yet each tastes just like grandma used to make.&nbsp;&quot; Thu, 09 Aug 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/9/Washington-s-MarCon-Pies-Recipe-for-Success/2527/ Come for the comfort food at Carriage Crossing in Yoder, Kan. http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/30/Come-for-the-comfort-food-at-Carriage-Crossing-in-Yoder-Kan-/1174/ Experience cooked-from-scratch flavor in Amish-influenced restaurantLarge restaurants capable of serving tour bus guests and motorcycle groups often cut corners to save time and expense.
