What's your favorite way to use *Star Anise*?

Recently in my local newspaper there was an article on foods/ingredients (what's hot/what's not food list) that were going to be BIG in '09. One of them happened to be *Star Anise* (bye bye cinnamon). I've never used it before but I love the smell and feel the need to get to know this yummy spice. So help me out eaters. What is your favorite way to use *Star Anise*? Feel free to include recipes!! :)
