Peanut Butter Balls III
How do I love these treats? Let me count the ways! First off I will tell you, I am not a huge peanut butter fan...don't hate it, just don't love it. I needed something that seemed fairly simple yet round and "candyish" for the holidays. The holidays passed and I never got them made but a few weeks later, I decided since I had all the ingredients on hand, I would give them a go. #1 (as I am counting the ways I love them)they are EASY to make. At first when I was rolling them into balls by hand they (my hands) started to get more and more gooey. I fixed that problem by keeping my hands dusted with powdered sugar. #2 They LOOK nice and could easily be dressed up even more with sprinkles etc. #3 They TASTE out of this world....I'm serious, they are SO creamy on the inside they taste worthy of the name "truffle". It is not normal for me to get a hankerin for anything peanut buttery but I seriously got hungry for these! Just to get them away from me, I gave the last dozen or so to my dear friend and told her where to find the recipe. A week or so later I spoke with her and she had already made them...TWICE! (she didn't exactly thank me for showing her this new vice!) BEWARE...your greatest dieting weakness will be replaced with these new wonders....before making, consider carefully if you want to do this to yourself and others! AWWWWWW..... GO FOR IT!!!!! You'll thank yourself. Between'll thank yourself! ;D

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa
I had some over ripe mangos given to me so instead of eating them as is, I decided to look up a recipe. Made this up just before some friends came over and they really loved it. I did too. Very, very tasty.

Billy's Favorite Smoky Collard Greens
There are rare moments for the daughter of a great cook when her mother tries something she's made, has seconds and demands the recipe....these greens provided me with one of those rare moments. I will say that Momma did suggest one thing that took it over the edge...after she had her first bite she said, "These need some butter! I always butter my greens." Momma IS always right....try it yourself! I almost forgot...I didn't have molasses so I simply left it out since other reviewers had stated they thought it a bit too sweet....but I myself am rarely offended by extra sweetness....I also doubled the garlic. I used fresh garlic and diced it pretty small.
