Bok Choy Salad

A few weeks ago, we had bok choy in our Bountiful Baskets. I thought this would be one of those weird ingredients that we sometimes get that I end up throwing out. Then I found this recipe for Bok Choy Salad. (I can't remember where I found it.) I thought it looked good and I had nothing to lose since I probably would just end up throwing it away if I didn't try this. I've never had bok choy before but it tastes a little like cabbage. I was pleasantly surprised with this salad. So if you ever have bok choy and you don't know what to do with it, this is a great salad!

Strawberry Cupcakes

My baby girl turned 3 this week! I know... it's so sad. My baby is growing up. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she said, "Pink cu-cakes and a pwesent!" She's so hard to please :):) I made these strawberry cupcakes for her and they were delicious! They were mini cupcakes so they were perfect for my tiny little girl. And did I mention they're my new favorite cupcake? They kind of tasted like strawberry shortcake in a cupcake. Yum!

Printable Recipe

Strawberry Cupcakes
1 lb strawberries, washed and hulled
1/4 cup water
1 box white cake mix
3 egg whites
1/3 cup canola oil

8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
4 Tbsp butter, at room temperature
4- 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup reserved strawberry puree

Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 24-count mini muffin tins with cupcake liners.

Reserve about 10 small strawberries for garnish. Place remaining strawberries in a blender with the water. Puree until smooth. This should equal 1 3/4 cups. If not, add enough water to equal that amount. Set aside 1/4 cup of the puree for the frosting.

Beat together cake mix, egg whites, canola oil, and 1 1/2 cups strawberry puree for 2 minutes or until mixed well. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden and toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

To make frosting, beat together cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar and strawberry puree. Mix on low for 1 minute. Increase speed to medium and beat until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Frost cupcakes and place in refrigerator. Cut each reserved strawberries into about 5 slices. Place strawberry slices on top of cupcakes.

Makes about 48 mini cupcakes
