Moe’s Delights started with a kind gesture. In February of 2020 Monisha was a high school teacher who decided to purchase a home in the neighborhood she grew up in, Sunny South Dallas. A month later COVID 19 hit pandemic levels and most of the country was ordered to social distance, leaving many confined to their homes. Years prior, Monisha learned her mother’s fight worthy sweet potato pie recipe and helped her bake them for family and friends. Althea Randolph is known by many names; Ms. Althea, Aunt T, Sis. Randolph. But one thing everybody knows her for is her down home sweet potato pie. Monisha baked her mother’s sweet potato pie recipe in effort to connect with her neighbors during the pandemic. Baking became a fun past time and more people fell in love with sweet potato pie. She kept baking and giving her pies away. By Thanksgiving, folks asked to purchase them and she ended up baking 54 pies that holiday season (using a hand mixer)!
By the end of 2020, Monisha decided to make Moe’s Delights a business. Currently (2023) she operates out of a commercial kitchen on the campus of Cornerstone Baptist Church, where her and her team bake pies for families, corporate events, weddings, and goodie bags all over to the state.
