      Oh wow! Even though I was born here in NYC - my parents are from NC and I enjoyed the best fresh healthy Southern soul food. Including collards with hamhocks.

      You know what my all time favorite food in the whole world is? It's a collard green sandwich with a bit of hot sauce.

      I no longer eat meat but fresh garlic and other seasonings work.

      All we need now is potato salad.
