Michael Ian Black on Mom’s Best Dish
When I was growing up, my mother’s best dish was store-bought Entenmann’s chocolate chip cookies.

Over dinner, I explained the health benefits of a colorful meal to my family. "The more colors, the more variety of nutrients," I told them. Pointing to our food, I asked, "How many different colors do you see?"
"Six," volunteered my daughter. "Seven if you count the burned parts."
