Cheesecake Lollipops

These are a lot of work, but they taste really good.  I got positive reviews from the people at work, so I think they're pretty good.

Gâteau au Chocolat

The icing on this chocolate cake has surprisingly little sugar.  The natural chocolate taste really shines through -- much different than the typical American chocolate taste.

Bavette Farcie (Stuffed Steak)

This is a great way to class up a steak.  You've got to make sure to buy a thick-cut steak so that you can fit the stuffing.  Typically, this is done with a flank steak.  I cheated and used a sirloin steak, but it still tasted good.

Potato Thyme Bread

Potato bread is always a little heavy.  This recipe brings a unique taste by adding thyme, honey, and whole wheat.  If you like homemade bread then it's definitely worth giving it a try.

Yield: 2 loaves

Cream Puffs & Éclairs

My brother got me a French cookbook for Christmas, and these looked so good that I had to try them.  The only real difference between cream puffs (choux) éclairs is the shape.  Otherwise, they're the same thing.
