Yummy Canada Day and Fourth of July Cupcakes

Picked a strawberry,
Picked a strawberry,
That was growing in the sun,
Then I washed it,
And I ate it,
And I picked another one.

I want to share with you what we did today.  My four year old son Will and I made yummy chocolate cupcakes for Canada Day.  I used a recipe from one of my favorite cook books, "Deceptively Delicious", by Jessica Seinfeld.  Her recipes are wonderfully sneaky as she incorporates a wide variety of fruits and vegetables into her recipes.   A few of my favorites are her Mac and Cheese with squash puree and Chicken Nuggets with broccoli puree.  Today we made her Chocolate Cupcakes with avocado puree and Cream Cheese Frosting with cauliflower puree and to top them off I made Mini Strawberry Cupcake Toppers to decorate them while Will was busy making a strawberry garland.

Wishing you a yummy holiday weekend!
