    Though I was born and raised in Detroit my parents were both from Tennessee. Sweet potato pie has always been a part of out household growing up. Every time that I taste pumpkin pie it seems as if something is missing.

Then, half of us live out west, so we are far removed from any southern culture.
    Gotcha but yeah I get that some black families didn't stay in the South long enough to partake in some of the "sweeter" food...

    Thanks Reese, I'll try again to find it since Thanksgiving has come and gone.
