Sweet Potato Pie

This is simpler  version of  sweet potato pie but it is good too!   I’m certainly looking forward to Thanksgiving!  It’s my favorite time of the year. A time to stop and reflect on how much we have to be thankful for !  I hope God has been as good to you as He has been to me!

About Peggy

Peggy Chaney was best known as cook and co-owner of Peggy's Restaurant in Kings Mountain, North Carolina (which she and her sister, Loretta, ran for over two decades). You can find her pages on Google+, Twitter and Facebook. One of eleven siblings, she was the daughter of a Baptist preacher, and was well remembered for her kind spirit and regard for others. Her genuine warmth and grace is sorely missed.
