We have some celebrating to do.

Come to think of it whenever someone mentions the word “celebrate” I automatically think of cake and pizza.

This might have to do with the fact that when I would celebrate my birthday as a little girl I always had a gaggle of girlfriends over for a slumber party. We would nosh on Pizza Hut pizza and devour my mom’s famous Chocolate Cake with Marshmallow Frosting. Simple and delicious. What more could a nine year-old need?

Okay, you might be thinking, what are we exactly celebrating? GREAT QUESTION! This coming Saturday, August 5th, Climbing Grier Mountain will turn seven years-old! Can you believe it? A part of me is still in disbelief that after hitting publish 2,555 days ago that this blog would eventually become my full time job.

I would love to say that it’s been all sunshine and lollipops, but then that wouldn’t have made for a good story. CGM has pushed me in ways I never thought possible. Things I thought weren’t in my realm of possibility like making a cookbook. Oh, and by the way, it’s still in the final editing phases. My plan is to make a big announcement about the book coming in September like oh you know, the NAME!

But before all that happens, I want to take a moment to honor this platform, space, and especially my readers. None of this would be possible without your love and continued support. I bow to your loyalty. 2017 has been a year for the books and to say that I’m looking forward to this next year is a effing understatement. I’m so freaking pumped to what the future will bring that I feel I am in a permanent jazz-hands state.

With that, I think we all need to grab a slice of this Slow Cooker Sriracha Beef Short Rib & Kimchi White Pizza. I think this is my greatest culinary pizza concoction yet! Slow cooked beef short ribs in a Sriracha sauce piled-high on a white pizza and topped with kimchi and a shite load of cheese. This pizza is worthy of any celebration. Now, grab a slice and let’s cheers to another year of kicking ass here at CGM!
