Smoky Chipotle Hummus
This dip is amazing! I omitted the bell peppers and cumin (personal preference), and doubled the tomatoes and cilantro. Used lime instead of lemon, and oil from the tomatoes instead of plain olive oil. Had to put this in the fridge before I ate too much of it!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III
I try to hide veggies in many dishes, and this worked perfectly! I couldn't resist telling my 9yo stepson as soon as he swallowed his first bite, and he still almost licked his bowl clean. I did sub 1/2 the oil for applesauce, then cut the sugar down to 1.5 cups, still plenty sweet. I have a wimpy grater so I gave up on it 5 min. in and added chunks of zucchini to the blender with the oil, applesauce and eggs. This one is definitely a keeper!

Slow Cooker Carnitas
This is very, very good. I too tripled the rub ingredients except for the cinnamon with fantastic results. I added a few splashes of liquid smoke before cooking, and crumbled a beef boullion cube into the crock with 2 cups water. Will definitely make this again. I like mine simple, with white onion and cilantro on a corn tortilla and a squeeze of lime. Delicioso!
