You should extend the default www vhost defined by dom, rather than
overriding it. The WWW variable lets you extend the vhost already
defined by dom, which will also apply to the cadenhowell.com vhost.

So, try something like this:

dom "cadenhowell.com" where
  DefaultAlias = false;
  DocumentRoot = home "public_html/cadenhowell.com/";
  WWW = begin
    proxyPass "/pie" "http://localhost:4242/";
    proxyPassReverse "/pie" "http://localhost:4242/"
  emailAlias "caden" "0x435448 at gmail.com"
