When Amanda Wilbanks left her comfortable job selling insurance for something more, she never thought the answer would be as easy as pie. While she searched for what was next, she found herself baking pies in her spare time, and this newfound hobby quickly became the future she had dreamed of: a business of her own.

“I love pies because they are nostalgic,” Amanda says. “They never go out of style, and they have been around for years. They are versatile. Anything can be put in a pie shell, from sweet dessert to savory casserole fillings. The possibilities are endless if you have a good crust recipe.”
