my kitchen is being over run by herbs

hey all - i need recipes that incorporate rosemary, dill, chives, or mint.
i bought some small plants and within two weeks the rosemary has doubled and the chives are insanely tall, as is the dill. the mint is just growing beautifully in a fragrant cascade down the window sill.
maybe i'll bake a lot of rosemary bread and drink lots of mojitos.

speaking of baking - i tried this recipe for raspberry lime bread, and it was pretty good. it didn't come out nearly as pretty as that picture, but it tasted pretty good. the lime was subtle, i wish it was a bit stronger. i cut back on the sugar a little bit since i was using turbinado sugar, and used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose flour. the milk i used was almond milk, which i think lent it a softer flavor, almost creamy.
