Sweetie-Licious Pie Pantry

sweetieliciousMikeRossAug10As I mentioned in my last post, I believe food is an artform, and making folks feel comfortable is also an artform. One place this happens for me is at Sweetie-Licious Pie Pantry in DeWitt, Michigan.

The owner is Linda, and she glows with enthusiasm and caring. Her staff is just as lovely, and the space they have created together is adorable. It has a feel, for me, of the large kitchens in the farm community where my parents grew up.

She has a small old refrigerator where she keeps the soda pop, for example… the kind with a tiny freezer in the center of the cooling space. She also has a tiny painted wooden kids’ play kitchen which sees lots of use.

And the pies! She won the top prize at the Crisco pie competition a few years ago, $5,000 for a pie. Yes, she has a flair for flavor as well as hospitality. Quality from A to Z, that’s Linda.

If you ever get to DeWitt, check out this spot. It’s near a stop light in downtown. Sweetie-Licious. Yes, it is. Really ‘licious.
