Former Ikette Robbie Montgomery took her mother’s soul food recipes passed down through the generations and created the empire known as “Sweetie Pie’s,” St. Louis’ iconic and wildly popular soul food restaurant run by Miss Robbie. “Sweetie Pie’s” is a ratings winner for the Oprah Winfrey Network, and the show’s stars were in Chicago recently during Verizon’s How Sweet the Sound gospel competition. This season, Miss Robbie’s son, Tim, will marry his fiancée Jenae, and will also juggle his role as manager, new dad, and future rapper.
