Sunday Collards

Braised greens often get a bad rap for being one-dimensional and over-cooked, and while this is too often the case, overcooking isnt the only culprit. Its usually clumsy seasoning that makes them pallid. The key to getting depth of flavor in a minerally green is a low simmer and a richly seasoned pot likker.

Sweet Potato Buttermilk Pie

We wanted our pie to resemble the light, tangy buttermilk pie Robert Stehling of the Hominy Grill makes.

Although some people like to use cake flour in their pie crusts, we like the flavor of all-purpose better.
