‘MAKEOVER’ MAMA COOKS — Above, Delores Powell, owner of Mama’s Kitchen at 209 Massachusetts Ave., isn’t afraid to grill outside in the winter snow as she prepares her popular jerk chicken for a recent Sunday rush. At right, she steams the cabbage to accompany her Caribbean cuisine inside the more comfortable confines of her new kitchen. Powell and her family appeared on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” in January 2010. With the grand opening of Mama’s Kitchen on Feb. 24, Powell’s dream of opening a Jamaican restaurant was realized directly across the street from her new home.  By Brielynn Bell and Margot Harris
