I like cooking & I like cats

48 hours ago, this guy was running around on the streets, homeless, and exhausted. Now he is eating, purring, and playing the way a 6 week old kitten should be.
MEET BRUCE WAYNE, or Brucey. BatCat? clearly I have a type (tuxedo kitties, hehe).
He is a sweet little nugget with lots of love to give. I’m attempting to foster him and after a few weeks of TLC, he will be up for adoption. If interested, please comment or send me a DM! I will be picky about choosing an adoptee for him, so if you have a bad track record with pets, this is not the kitten for you! He deserves the best.
The @kittenxlady and @iamthecatphotographer are such an inspiration to me, and I have been wanting to foster for many months. My friend scooped Bruce Wayne off a busy street, and said he needed someone to take him, so I took that as an opportunity. BW even looks like one of Kitten Lady’s current fosters, Badger . Anyone can foster a kitten or puppy in need, even if you work a full-time job (like me). It’s up to us humans to help out animals in need. Save a life!⠀
I’m baaaaaackkkk. Took a 5 day break from Instagram, and I gotta say, it was really nice. Sometimes, you need a break from social media and that’s okay! It’s healthy and something I should do more often. Thank you guys for understanding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Muffa-lotta love for the famous, Italian Muffuletta from NOLA. Recipe is based on the authentic OG sandwich with @centralgrocerynola Olive Tapenade Spread. Are you drooling yet? #linkinbio
Decided I needed to incorporate some more fish into my diet, so I made some delicious white cod. This meal was easy, quick, and full of flavor. What more could you ask for? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain’t no place I’d rather be This is one of my fave little spots, located way past the baseball fields and off the beaten path (literally went off the trail to find the perfect spot). Great spot to hike, nature center for the kids, or use one of their many lots to work out!
An easyyyyyy dinner is such a great thing when you’re always on the go. I feel like I’m always on the run and cooking something I can throw in the oven gives me an opportunity to get other chores done.
Roasted Pan Sheet Meal with Sausage Chicken is SUPER EASY. Roast veggies and meat with olive oil and lemon juice on 350 F for 40 minutes, flipping veggies half way thru. I’ll type up a recipe soon
Cinco de “Mayo,” ayyyyyy. Okay, I really didn’t even plan that- the timing of this post just worked out.
Mayo. One one of the world's most beloved condiments - but, not one of the healthiest. That is until Just For All released it's very own "Just Mayo," only a few years ago. A company that started out as a father and son sleeping on cots in Birmingham, Alabama is now one of the biggest competitors to industry big names'.
So, what makes Just Mayo healthier than Hellman's? Well, it's made from plant-based protein (peas) instead of eggs for starters. Canola oil is used in JM versus Hellman's soybean oil (ew!). JM has less fat, less calories, and still all the taste, plus it's affordable unlike many of its organic/vegan/healthyish brothers and sisters.
I've been eating Just For All products for a bout a year now, and I love them all. You can find them easily at Whole Foods AND Wal-mart, not to mention most other grocery stores. MY other favorite varieties are their Caesar dressing, and Chipotle Mayo (I use it as a substistute for Yum-Yum sauce!). Give them a try!
Not on my a-game with picture taking this past weekend, but here is a pic of my first catered guacamole at the Dellinger wedding! Clearly snapped a pic after it had been dug into ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Making this pomegranate guac and Buffalo Chicken Taquitos for a bridal shower this weekend as well! Don’t forget, this amazing #guac recipe is posted on my blog and makes the perfect #CincoDeMayo appetizer! give me all the avoooo. #linkinbio
Is it take-out or nah? Fried Cauliflower Rice recipe is now up and live. Can’t wait to eat the leftovers today Link in the bio!
Yes, we all love Chinese take-out. Yes, most of like fried rice. But when it boils down to the nutritional info of traditional fried rice take-out it’s not so good for us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cauliflower rice does not partially taste like regular rice. That being said, you can get a pretty similar taste, but the secret is in the oil. SESAME OIL is THE only way to obtain that authentic fried rice taste. You MUST use it to experience the take-out copycat flavor. It tastes so similar, it’s ungodly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re perhaps cutting calories, watching your carb intake, or just eating clean overall, cauli rice is a much better alternative to regular starchy rice. Plus, you’re getting half a days’ dose of #VitaminC! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many prefer to use fresh cauli rice, but I like the convenience and cost efficiency of the frozen cauliflower medley from @greengiant. It already contains the pre-cut cauliflower (I hate chopping), carrots, and peas, so all you have to add is sesame oil, a scrambled egg, and coconut aminos (or soy sauce).
Note: The nutritional information for the fried rice was pulled from PeiWei’s website, and the cauli rice was pulled from my personal recipe which I will be sharing tomorrow! Let me know your thoughts below .
