Leftover Spaghetti Bake

Cooking for one everyday means I have a LOT of leftovers. This means I have to get a little creative on leftover night. This one box of spaghetti made 3 dishes.

Pan Fried Peppered Hash Browns

Fresh hash browns are so much better than the ones you find in the freezer aisle. The store-bought ones are typically deep fat fried, but pan frying or air frying your own is healthier and fresher. French toast with berry syrup, baked bacon, scrambled eggs and hash browns! Those hash browns were awesome! Pan FriedContinue reading “Pan Fried Peppered Hash Browns”

Balsamic Strawberry Glazed Pork Tenderloin

This turned out to be such an amazing early Valentine’s Day dinner! I had some homemade strawberry jam in my fridge from when my freezer fritzed out and Balsamic Vinegar seemed like a great pairing.

Italian Elk Sausage & Peppers

This is such a quick, simple and amazing recipe! I use elk sausage, but beef, pork or chicken work just as well.
