What Recipes Maximize a Food Processor's Potential?

Good Questions

Q: I just received a food processor as a gift and I'm psyched to try out my new gadget! I've always relied on blenders (too clunky!) or good old-fashioned muscle to help me out in the kitchen, and skipped over any recipe that called for a food processor to do the heavy lifting. Last night I made potato pancakes (5 pounds of potatoes grated!) and I'm eager to make more recipes that maximize the machine's potential.

Do you recommend any recipes you wouldn't dare attempt unless you had your trusty food processor by your side?
