For many, Mother’s Day can be bittersweet if your mom is no longer here. Bernice King, daughter of the late Dr. Martin Luther, Jr., and Coretta Scott King, uses the holidays to remember the family’s cooking memories.
“Every Sunday, my sister, our brothers and I would alternate making breakfast for the entire family,” she says. “We get up earlier than the others to prepare the eggs, bacon, grits and toast. This was my mother’s way of helping us develop kitchen skills as well as a work ethic.”
