Red, White, and Blue Backyard

I've got a red umbrella and an eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis L.) tree, a whole stack of white plastic chairs, and a blue, vintage NY Yankees baseball cap sitting on the table in the backyard. Ready to celebrate. Happy Fourth of July to everyone. [NOTE: Yeah, OK, the baseball cap is stretching things a bit].


July 4th Cupcake

Amy (see World's Best Carrot Cake) got up early this morning and made cupcakes for the 4th of July. Basic recipe is here, but she made a few modifications. The resultant cupcakes were not only delicious, they were also a patriotic red, white, and blue. [NOTE: Given that it was a holiday, I ate several].
