Davis Foods Ugly Pies

Davis Foods Ugly Pies in Los Angeles have it down.  I attended LA's Largest Mixer this past week which is a huge networking event and met the amazing team of Davis Foods.  The ladies were working fearlessly behind their booth handing out samples of love in every bite with their ugly pies.  I walked right up and felt like I was at a dinner at church back in the day.  Clear cellophane covered every tray and small samples were handed to each visitor with such love and care.    It was obvious these amazing cooks took great pride in their work and in being sure everyone enjoyed every single bite (or should I say bites - plural).

You're not alon…
