exactly what I needed last weekend at my mother’s. You know the
saying, “Good food can be god for the soul,” and the food was delicious.
My mom cooked and baked everything from scratch and it was
amazing. I ate myself into a coma. I suppose all or

I ate the greens along with cornbread muffins.

that. I say “too good” because they can be uncontrollably
addictive. (Just for the record, “too good,” for me, only pertains
