Honey recipes

Hello all
I have recently signed up on swap-bot.Swap-bot is a service and a community.
It facilitates group snail mail and internet swaps. It is also a community where swappers can connect, share, and have fun. Swap-bot was originally created to be a tool used by blog owners to facilitate mail swaps with their readers. The site has grown from a simple utility to a meeting place where at any given time there are over 500 public swaps being hosted. Swap-bot is completely free for the users.

One of the swaps I participated was in "Honey Recipe Swap".I was assigned 4 partners to whom I had to send atleast 3 recipes whicj use honey & naturally 4 people were supposed to send recipes to me:)
So here I am going to share few of those recipes:)
