Turnip Greens with Corn Meal Dumplings

Linda Griffith


I haven't had this since my mother passed away. IT was one of her famous recipes and it brings back so many memories. When I was a child, I couldn't stand the sight of this dish, but as an adult, they are yummy. I just wish mine could turn out like my Mom's
