{ Every Thursday I’ll be featuring a pie from the new book Pie*ography,
for which I was the baker + stylist.  Traci Thorson was the photographer.
All pictures in this post were taken by Traci.  }

{ a n y o n e    is able to join …. what pie are y o u?  }

today’s pie:  sweet potato pie
who’s pie is it?  Vanessa Brantley-Newton



another 4 star pie!  Truth be told, this was my first experience making and eating a sweet potato pie, but it most certainly will not be the last!!

It was so good

rustic and buttery sweet


this cast iron skillet I treasure, was a perfect fit for Vanessa’s pie

I pulled out my finest serving china, dainty and ladylike, and I loved it with the rustic cast iron skillet…a favorite wicker serving tray was my tip to the south and their hospitality…it was like I was having a group of my closest friends from Church over to enjoy this pie…while we caught up on eachother’s life

isn’t that what pie does?  I sure think so…it brings people together

this pie lasted for about 4 hours I think…eaten with fresh whipped cream and the pie still warm a bit from the oven…so good and super easy

thank you Venessa for coming into my kitchen and showing me a thing or two about sweet potato pie

xo + sweet blessings,
Anne Marie

by the way!  Jo Packham and I will be doing a giveaway here soon…..I will let you know the details soon!!

    My Pieography book came from Amazon yesterday. I stayed up past midnight reading it’s lovely pages. My favorite photo is that picture of you in your long denim skirt and apron making your chicken pot pie…so lovely!

    Hi Anne Marie! I left a comment this morning when I linked up but I don’t see it. Am I lost in spam somewhere?
    Thanks for doing this. I ordered my book this morning and should get it next week. I’m really looking forward to it, I love this type of cookbook! :)

    Hi Anne Marie,
    I love sweet potato pie! Not only is it so-so-so good, but packed with so many nutrients that I feel so much less guilty about gorging myself on it : )
    many hugs,

    Hello Ann Marie! Imagine my wonderful surprise when I did a google search for my name and I saw my pie??? Oh my goodness how was this past right by me and I didn’t know about it.

BEAUTIFUL!! We should do something over this pie. Thanks so much! Vanessa
