What's the plan?

So what is the plan in this position? I worked hard to get a good bishop, pawn structure, space and opponents passive pieces. Isn't a B vs N endgame with pawns on both sides of the board better for the B (or is that only when the rooks are off too)? Couldn't do a thing with it...

Side note:
I evaluated this position with me having the significant advantage. Crafty has us nearly equal. This game showed me if you can't evaluate who has the better position your play will suffer.

GP Attack / Passive Queen Sac / Miniature

I have only seen this once before and I missed it. I used to play the Halasz Gambit vs the Sicilian but I read about the GP Attack from other knights and tried it out.
