Real Brother here.
When I moved to Los Angeles away from my family in the Northwest there was nothing I missed more then my mothers Sweet Potato Pie. On holiday’s my moms[Real Sista] would make four or five pies and we’d chow down from sun up to sun down. My folks are from Baton Rough Louisiana and I never really thought about the origin of my mothers sweet potato pie let alone the recipe. Growing up it was a holiday tradition to pay a visit to everyone you knew in the neighborhood and while visiting sample their pie.
From day one I noticed something; nobody can make a sweet potato pie like my mother. I used to secretly curse my mother for not going global with her pies and putting Marie Calenders out of business. We’ll I finally did it. After years of not being able to come close to the perfection and delight of those pies I went on ahead and requested the recipe and now I can share it with you. If you check my blog or my numerous posts you’ll know I have never lied and I’m not about to start now. This is the most incredible delicious pie you have EVER tasted if its not …then you are the no cookingest person around. Bump what you heard this recipe for Sweet Potato Pie is a game changer. And now without further a due[Mr. President you ready?] I present Mrs. Cal’s Sweet Potato Pie.
