Life, like food, is better when shared! GNG is adventurous in the kitchen, and in life, and is collecting golden nuggets wherever she goes to share with you. If you are hungry for life, or simply hungry, stop by her kitchen and see what’s cooking. Take a golden nugget and pass it on.
What is pizza butter? It is a mixture of butter, tomato paste, mozzarella, and spices that is spread on English Muffins to make mini pizzas. Pizza butter takes under five minutes to make, but can be stored in your fridge for several days of enjoyment. Top with your favorite toppings and put under the broiler for 5 min. If you need a quick individual snack or an appetizer for the masses, pizza butter is the answer.

It was a recipe that many adults may have found intimidating, let alone a seven year old, but I confidently and meticulously plugged away step by step until it was finished to my liking. It looked like a masterpiece and I was beaming with pride as I showed my mom and dad what I was able to create for this special occasion. I remember the countless praises they gave me for how beautiful it looked and how much effort I had put into it. After dinner I was filled with anticipation as my mom and dad took their first bite into this cake that I had spent all afternoon creating. Simultaneously I dove my own fork into this chocolate delicacy and took a bite. I suddenly realized that something was wrong. My beautiful cake tasted gritty. How could this be? I had followed the i…
Back when I was going to school at Canadian University College for Adventure Based Counseling, my friend Ryan made some of the best guacamole that I had ever had. It was the first time I had seen anyone include a dollop of mayo in their guac.
