You have all weekend to write it out, Please.:thumbup: and Thank You!!!:) Thank You!!! :) Thank You!!! :)

Since there is a drink recipe I think I will send in the Kahlua recipe I have as well as the cookie, it's very similar to Lemoncello.

Still have a hour left at work, can some one fine the cabana boy????? Maybe he can sneak something into my coffee.

But I did the best I could for at the time, next time will do much better.

Me too! This is my first SS, I didn't wrap and I don't even know if I put in enough goodies! I hope my giftee wont be disappointed. :(

Don't worry, I stressed last year my first year, I made a game of it for my person last year. This year I did not wrap anything and just stuffed as much as would fit. She still has to sort thru everything to find everything. :D So it should take her some time to unpack the box. I hope she likes it also. Found a few things that did not get into the box so there may be a follow on box??? or Envelope???

Yeah! My box is here! My SS must be teasing me by putting rocks in the box- it's so heavy I could hardly lift it off the porch. The good thing is we left to go out of town the next morning so I can't see it. Maybe I won't notice it when we get back.

I also add other things at time....cranberries , strawberries chopped up or rasberries...whatever I have...I omit the nuts because my granddaughter is allergic...but it is delicious with.....I also add more icing sugar to the icing....I find it is just a bit too cream cheesy.....maybe another cup....makes a lot...
.
Ingredients
2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
3/4 tsp (4 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) nutmeg
3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (175 mL) packed brown sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup (175 mL) vegetable oil
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
2 cups (500 mL) grated carrots
1 cup (250 mL) drained crushed canned pineapple
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped pecans

Icing:
1 8 oz (250g) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, softened
1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla
1 cup (250 mL) icing sugar

Grease and flour 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In separate bowl, beat together granulated and brown sugars, eggs, oil and vanilla until smooth; pour over flour mixture and stir just until moistened. Stir in carrots, pineapple and pecans. Spread in prepared pan.

Bake in centre of 350F (180C) oven for 40 minutes or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in pan on rack. (Make-ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days. Or wrap with heavy duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks; let thaw before continuing.)

Icing: In bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Beat in icing sugar, one-third at a time, until smooth. Spread over top of cake. (Make-ahead: Cover loosely and refrigerate for up to I day.)

Huntanette, this sounds wonderful! I think that Icing Sugar is what we call Confectioners or Powdered Sugar; does that sound right? (Neesie, I'm lookin' at you since you seem to have good all-around knowledge of most things.)

This looks pretty close to my Carrot Cake recipe, but I think I'll try yours next time. The only other thing I'd throw in is some coconut just because I like it in my carrot cake.
