We've got an all-star lineup of bakers making pies for you to taste, and from now till Pie Social, we'll introduce them to you, one by one.

Today: Julie Moreno and her daughter Justine Hankerson of Jewel's Bakery and Cafe

This will be Julie Moreno's first year competing in Pie Social and, quite frankly, we're a bit surprised she found the time. When we stopped by the East Phoenix storefront that will eventually be Jewel's Bakery and Cafe, we found little more than a shell of a restaurant, with a heck of a lot more concrete and power tools than we'd been expecting. She's had to put the opening back a few times already but has her fingers crossed they'll be done in a few more weeks.
