Lime Asparagus

This asparagus recipe has just a hint of saltiness, but not too much.  Combined with the lime flavor it really stands out.

Lemon Scones

This makes for a great breakfast.  It's pretty quick to throw together and the lemon flavor is great.  I'd recommend serving it with a fruit curd.  I used lime curd.

Yield: 8 scones

Garlic Sauce Chicken

If you're looking for a tasty chicken dish to enjoy on a cold night, look no further.  A hearty serving of this will fill you right up.

The garlic sauce is relatively mild.  If you really like strong garlic flavor then you should add a few extra cloves.

Hummus

Hummus is a great finger food.  This recipe adds a few additional flavors to really give it a unique taste that will leave you blown away.

Next time I'm going to try adding some celery leaves for additional flavor.

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.

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.
