Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing
Great cupcakes. Adapted the recipe based on suggestions from other reviewer. When I made them, I used: > 2 3/4 cup shredded carrots > 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup applesauce > 2.5 tsp cinnamon > 1 tsp nutmeg > 1/8 tsp cloves > 3/4 cup all purpose flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour For the icing....I essentially cut the recipe in 1/2 but also tweaked the quantities of the chocolate, orange extract and confectioners sugar. Here is what I used: 2 ounces of white chocolate (left this as is even though I pretty much halved everything else) 4 oz cream cheese 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/8 tsp orange extract (used only a tiny bit to prevent overpowering) 1 cup of icing sugar (halved and then halved again as per other reviewers suggestions) 1 tbsp heavy cream

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Made these for a Valentine's day treat and they turned out perfect. The bag of milk chocolate chips I had wasn't quite 16 oz so I topped them up with some semi-sweet ones resulting in a chocolate combination. As others have suggested, I melted the shortening first in the microwave and then added it to the chocolate as I started to melt it on the stove. I also melted white chocolate chips to be able to do the stripes. I did add a bit of shortening to the white chocolate but not as much as I did to the milk/semi-sweet chocolate. In other reviews, people had suggested not using any shortening at all with the white chocolate so I didn't want to make the white chocolate too runny. I didn't have any issues and was very pleased with the results.

Fajita Marinade I
Based on the recommendations of other reviewers, I have adapted the recipe and really enjoy it now. My husband and I enjoy foods with a bit of "kick". I have reduced the amount of water, added jalepeno peppers, cilantro, cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper. I do not use the smoke flavouring.
