Renée McLeod, a.k.a. Petsi, learned to bake from her grandmother. One of those recipes was her sweet-potato pie, which combines roasted spuds, brown sugar, spices, and evaporated milk for a hefty pastry. Her eggnog-custard pie, tastes like that velvety holiday elixir–a blend of heavy cream, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon–baked until set but still wobbly.
