about a week after my article "Reclaiming True Grits: Why Soul Food is Good for You" was published on TheRoot.com, msn.com picked it up and placed it on their front page for 24 hours. i awoke the next morning to find over 90 comments on my essay. a few days later, the editor of TheRoot.com informed me that they decided to give me a blog on the site.
"eco soul kitchen" will launch this monday. check TheRoot.com throughout the week to get recipes from my "Rebirth Brunch."
