I love cooking with leeks.  They have a mild onion-like taste and are a perfect substitution for regular onions.  Typically, you'll only want to use the white portion of the stalk.  Here's how to prep leeks:

1) cut in half length-wise
2) chop into thin slices (pictured above)
3) drop into a bowl filled with water.  Give the leeks a good swirl.  Leeks are grown in sand which get in between the layers.  You don't want to skip this step unless you like sand in your dish :)
