This is MSnubutterflies!
This actually started as a chicken salad. I would make this before heading off to the gym so I would have something quick to grab as I headed to work. I used it to make a lettuce wrap or ate it with celery sticks.
My daughter loves this. It’s one of her favorites. So I started making a pasta salad so there would be enough for everyone. It’s easy and it’s another meal I can make ahead and it’s ready when they’re ready.
It can easily still be used as the original chicken salad just add chicken instead of pasta and enjoy over a bed of lettuce or as I did in a lettuce wrap.
Of course you can always do both. Pasta and chicken if you like. I make it that way for the meat eaters in the house but for me it’s a vegetarian version.

This is Nomenom!
My oven broke a few years ago, and our circumstances prevented the purchase of a new one. I luckily have inherited my Grandma’s stove/oven, and my husband installed it last night. As I was cleaning it, I couldn’t help but remember all of the family meals she prepared for us.
At 99 years old, she cooked for us all for the last time a year and a half ago.
I think my Mom said it best when she said,”…the smells she produced!! It’s called love!” My Grandma passed away just over a year ago, and we all miss her deeply. I’ve also inherited a few of her recipes; I just hope I can do them justice on her stove!
I had mentioned to a friend on social media that I would be cooking chicken stew tonight for my son, but he left today to go on a cruise. Tonight I…

Today’s Reblog contest winner is The Single Dad’s Guide To Life!!
So I am finally breaking down and doing my first recipe. I know that this sounds like I’m as excited about this as I am about going to the dentist and having them tell me I need 2000 dollars worth of work done on my teeth. You see the smile on the dentist face and you begin to wonder whether or not it would be cheaper to have someone else torture you. Also, you swear you hear him humming “Son Be a Dentist” from Little Shop of Horrors, and are hoping he doesn’t have a plant named Audrey.
But I’m really not upset about finally putting up a blog on a recipe that I have made. I’m terrified. It’s one thing to tell people they should go to Disneyland, or eat a brunch on the Queen Mary. That’s like a no brainer. It’s like telling people they…

This is Fearless!
I love to cook. I love new recipes. I’m not really a baker but I love cooking meals. My first husband was from India and I learned how to cook some incredible Indian dishes. Cooking Indian food is very labor intensive, but it is well worth the effort!
I also love Mexican and Italian food. I love mixing different tastes and try new things. I appreciate many flavors and I’m drawn to foods that have robust flavors. I like food spicy and fairly hot.
One of my most annoying MS symptoms (actually they all are) is my right hand weakness. And I am a right-handed person. I’ve had to learn how to do a lot of things with my left hand, but chopping and stirring are not among them. And my hand weakens very quickly. So if anything takes a lot of chopping, slicing, dicing I have a very difficult…
