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.

PB&Js

A candy form of the peanut butter & jelly sandwich.  Who woulda known you could take a classic and turn it into candy?

Fudge

I've always loved fudge.  I got a new recipe book a week ago with a recipe that sounded good, so I had to try this out.  Turns out it's super-easy and super-tasty -- a winning combination!  I made a double-batch -- half with nuts and half without.

Cranberry Cheesecake

This is a great thanksgiving or Christmas dessert.  Topped with some mint leaves and a couple extra berries, this is a fantastic looking cheesecake that your family will remember.

Cheddar Broccoli Soup

I was walking through the grocery store last week and saw a can of cheddar broccoli soup sitting on the shelf.  I said to myself, "that sounds pretty good.  I bet I could make that..."

This is my rendition of the soup.  I've never tried the can, but I'd be willing to wager that this tastes a little better.

Swirled Bread

I love the smell and taste of freshly baked bread -- there's just no comparison to the stuff you buy at a store.  I decided to try my hand at creating a recipe to swirl white and rye together to make something cool looking and delicious.

Charlotte Chocolate and Toasted Hazelnuts

I was looking for a way to use up some extra ladyfingers that were laying around, and came up with this recipe.  It's very rich and chocolaty, so you can't eat too much at once.  Hope you like it.
