Cucumber Cilantro Salad with Chicken

I got a vegetable spiralizer tool, which is a lot of fun. Cucumbers and zucchini are my favorite vegetables to make into spirals. If you don't own one, this salad is also yummy with cucumber half circles.

The dressing on this salad has apple cider vinegar and lemon juice in it. You would think it would be acidic and tart, but it is really mild and flavorful. Just make sure you don't put too much raw onion in the salad -- a mistake I have made. I love onions, but when working with raw yellow onion, a little bit packs a lot of flavor.

Shredded Wheat Apple Muffins

What do you do with the crushed Frosted Shredded Wheat in the bottom of your cereal box?
If you want, the crumbs could be baked into some yummy muffins.

Baked Blueberry Pancakes

I'm a huge pancake fan. This is a version you bake in your oven, so there is less hands-on time. It would make a great brunch treat. Powdered sugar on top is yummy, but syrup is always good too.

My 3-month-old baby boy finally went down for a nap this afternoon and so I was able to get a few things done, including making this recipe. This is the third time I have made it and it has always turned out a success, so I figure it's ready for sharing on the blog.

Oatmeal Coffee Cake

This breakfast recipe is so tasty, and it doesn't even require milk. My dad can't do milk, so I was interested in a recipe that looks like a regular coffee cake except that in the place of milk, you basically make a big bowl of oatmeal in the microwave. Isn't that a fun replacement?
