    A wellknown classic with pears, gorgonzola, honey, arugula(rucola).

    Peel and quarter not too ripe pears (don't use soft ones). Fry in a pan in butter on not too high fire. When they soften just a little, drizzle over some honey and let caramelize gently. Caramelize may not be the correct word as there's certainly no coloring involved. The butter and the honey form some sort of syrup.

    Plating; put some arugula on a plate, put the pears on and a few chunks of gorgonzola(dolce). Drizzle the syrup over it. You may add some lightly toasted walnuts or pecans or whatever you like.

    First of all ILC, you can substitute honey for sugar in most recipes. Sometimes you have to adjust quantitites, sometimes not.

    Second, could you be a bit more focused? Are you looking for sweet or savory dishes? Appetizers? Desserts? Drinks? Plain dishes or fancy? Etc?

    Yep,  

    Here's one.  Simple but scrumptious.

    Need:

    Honey

    baking dish

    quarter chicken legs/thighs

    (kraft) honey bar-b-que sauce

    Pre-heat at 350.

    After washing and drying your chicken, place in an open baking dish.

    Pour honey over chicken.  Pour honey bar-b-que on chicken.

    Place in oven uncovered for 1hour 10- 1 hour 15 minutes.

    The chicken has a distinct honey flavor, and is tender and delicious.  Quarter's may be too much for some; you can always go just thigh's or leg's.  I enjoy this juicy meal with rice and a nice green vegetable like steamed broccoli.

    You want to be careful using honey for appetizers. Too heavy a hand with it and the dish gets to be cloyingly sweet. Appetizers are supposed to pique the appetite, not dull it. As a general rule, I'd say if you can taste the honey as a distinct element then you've used too much. You also might consider using honey-based items in conjunction with spicy or acidic ones, to achieve balance.

    For instance, in her Great Bar Food At Home, Kate Hayhoe has a recipe for seeded honey crisps. These use won ton wrappers to create crackers with a salty-sweet flavor. By themselves they are far too sweet, IMO. But if you combine them with a spicy dip or spread, they work well.

    The recipe is too long to type here, but you might try looking up the book.

    Very true. I forgot in my earlier post to mention you need to squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the pears and honey preparation when still in the pan.

    You need acidity to give some depth in the taste. Without it the dish tastes very "flat" and too sweet.

    Your welcome.  I love it.  The only thing on my recipe I'm not sure of is the time of cooking.  We use a gas heated stove and we are in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains.  Your time in the oven and temperature may differ.  I would guess that a thermometer would be a good idea.
