uses for buckwheat flour

Does anyone have any good recipes using buckwheat flour?
I have 2 bags of it in my fridge, and so far my pancakes were a flop (didn't stay together at all!) and the bread I made was flat and dense.
I'm trying to be wheat free, but i guess buckwheat flour would work better with some wheat flour added....not sure what to do with it now!

Any ideas???

I'd love to know too...I'm always looking for ways to expand our grain repertoire.

Homemade buckwheat tortillas! 1 cup buckwheat flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 cup water, and an optional teaspoon of oil. Mix well and (one at a time) form into a golf-ball sized ball. Depending on the how wet the dough is, I might knead the ball in some flour. Then pat out into a thin circle on a well-floured surface. Transfer to a dry, heated, cast iron skillet, and cook until starting to brown, then flip and cook second side a minute or two. Wrap in warm towel. As you add each cooked tortilla to the towel, they soften. Really tasty if you don't mind the buckwheat flavor!

Any more ideas out there?
