My fondest childhood memories were the times gathered around the family dinner table at my grandparents house, eating some of the best comfort foods ever. These days, family is not just comprised of those sharing the same DNA, but an eclectic group of loved ones who you like sharing your down time with.
Growing up a Southern girl, you know our table was full of some down home favorites. One of those dishes, of course, was collard greens.
My grandfather taught me how to prepare collard greens, which turned out to be one of my signature dishes in our family. Now, you know we didn’t call it a “signature dish” back then; it was just that favorite dish you cooked with love and pride for the family, while they boosted your head by ranting and raving over how good it tastes.
There’s no greater time to form lasting memories around the dinner table than during the holiday season. I specialize in southern and diverse comfort food dishes, while adding my own healthy culinary twist to them, and so can you.
At SweetMoses Brands, I believe that home entertaining should be a joy, and not a chore – all while helping you bring your loved ones back around the dinner table.

Sadly, doesn't matter by whose hand she died. Unjustified arrested set the outcome in motion. The state murdered her. #JusticeForSandraBland
Sandra could have been your mother, sister, aunt, friend or if she wasn't killed the community outreach advisor A&M. #SandraBland
