A spry 78 now, momma stands five foot four with way more salt than pepper short, tapered hair and a smooth, West Indies copper brown complexion. She has a small, round head; ample, small nose and lips; meaningful, intense, yet warm brown eyes; and a rather healthy belly that seems to aid her in laughing heartily. She has witnessed a whole bunch of living, dying, laughing, and crying.
The food she cooks and serves is some of the best grub you will ever put in your mouth. Her greens, macaroni and cheese, and hot-water cornbread will make you soothe yourself, and her vittles of wisdom, empowerment, and survival will make you take care of yourself. Help yourself to Vada's Vittles. Her recipes and sayings are seasoned to perfection for your kitchen and your soul.
