Though matriarch Addie Garner passed away this past September, Mr. & Mrs. G's Home Cooking & Pastries still serves as a heart-warming reminder of the power of soul food. Recent visits were filled with fried chicken, chicken and dumplings and smothered pork chops, paired with buttery mashed potatoes, creamy mac 'n' cheese, those yams and cornbread that helps you sop up any juicy remnants. And then there's dessert — cherry pies, hot apple cobbler, German chocolate cake, pecan pie and buttermilk pie all like mom used to make.
