Egg Plant Roll Ups Lots of prep work, but a huge hit. I usually make a meat version and vegetarian version and freeze several casserole dishes of them. Makes at least two casseroles. This is pretty labor intensive, so I usually double and make 4 to 6 to freeze. Click to view Recipe.

Green Tea, Lavender & Pecan Cookies Another class favorite. These cookies are not super sweet and with Macha green tea in them, hay, they are actually good for you! With a sophisticated, layered flavor to them, they are great for an afternoon lunch dessert. Really bring them forward with a cream cheese and lemon frosting. To view recipe, click here.
