The busy mother of two recently decided to share her family recipes in a cookbook, Southern Baked: Celebrating Life with Pie. In the pages, Amanda offers specialized menus for celebrations to mark each month of the year, including a New Year’s Day Dinner in January and a Romantic Valentine’s Repast in February.
Starting with her highly sought-after Southern Baked Pie Dough, recipes span full meals with her own memories and traditions woven throughout. “I didn’t want a book about just pies,” Amanda says. “My goal was to bring back the art of celebrating together around the table with foods prepared with love.”
