Meat & Bread Boats

I was surfing the web looking at recipes and got this cool idea.  You  could use pretty much any ground meat for the filling.  Combine with some chopped vegetables and spices and you've got a tasty dinner.

Lemon Spearmint Ganache Candy

These are some fantastic candies made with a lemon mint ganache center.  The spearmint was pretty strong, so if it's not your favorite flavor then you may want to consider cutting back to about 35 leaves.

The centers were perfectly creamy.  Couldn't have asked for a better batch of ganache.

Sponge Candy

For those familiar with Crunchie Bars, this is essentially the same thing.  The inside is a hard candy filled with lots of air holes.  The candy itself is water soluble, so it's hard but still chewable.  Coated in milk chocolate, this forms a tasty candy bar.

Crunchie Bars have long been my favorite candy bar.  Unfortunately, the silly yanks haven't figured out how to import them, so when I ran into this recipe I got giddy with excitement.  I made a double-batch, so keep that in mind when you look at the recipe and estimate the yield.

This is a traditional Finnish sweet bread.  The cardamom gives it a unique taste, topped off with a coating of  egg, sugar, and almonds.

Sweet & Sour Pork

A few oil burns later, you've got a fantastic Chinese dish.  A great combination of a lot of flavours, this is sure to please (and dirty a whole lot of dishes. :D)

Peanut Butter Fudge Cups

These are basically a peanut butter cookie shaped into a small cup and filled with a quick fudge.  If you can bake the cups just right then they'll be nice and soft with a creamy filling.
