Sweet Potato Noodles Stir Fry

This Vermicelli oriental style noodle is gluten-free. In fact, it’s made from sweet potatoes, so it’s a great alternative for people who are wheat and/or gluten-free — plus it changes it up from the regular rice noodle. A few years ago one of my dad’s coworker, who is Korean, made us a Thanksgiving dish with […]

Rustic Home Spaghetti

This is one of my basic go-to pasta dishes. The cabbage and canned diced tomatoes are a great, tasty alternative to regular pasta sauce–and cheaper too. In the summer I sometimes use fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Ingredients (serves 2 to 4) 1 clove garlic, pressed 1 large shallot, chopped 1/4 to 1/2 medium to […]
