So this is basically just sharing recipes and trying new ones so you don't get bored in quarantine, it could be any meal (or snack!) it doesn't matter what.

You can also share some of your favourite cookbooks! ( I think mine is Healthy snacks for Kids, don't judge the title, it's from the 80s)

You and your friends can share recipes you invented, found online, or just really like!

I have a few recipes to share as well!

Rules: be nice of course, be appropriate aaaaand... I'll add more if i can think of anything else


Here's a recipe I invented:

1 Sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1 cup of water

1 tsp of cinnamon

2 apples, sliced

1 Tbsp of honey

1 Tbsp of brown sugar

1/3 cup of dried cranberries, optional

1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, also optional


  1. Pour the water into a deep skillet (add more water if needed) and add the sweet potatoes, cinnamon, brown sugar and honey. Put the lid on the skillet and cook at medium low heat.
  2. When the sweet potatoes are almost soft, add in the apples, cranberries, and walnuts. Cook at medium low heat until the sweet potatoes and apples are soft.

     Serve warm and refridgerate leftovers.

   Makes about 4 servings


I will add more recipes and cookbooks I've found and liked!

    • Omg that's so funny!!-- I actually think I used this same recipe for a lemon cake I made! xD
    • OOOO this looks yummy!
  • Hi! This is a really great idea, but I believe Kiara already made a board like this. But you can probably still keep this up if you want to :)
  • (Probably most of the recipes I share will not be links, so they will be typed)

    Here's a recipe for a mug cake/brownie from an old NMG magazine from 2014!
    Mix thoroughly in a mug:
    2 Tbsp flour
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1 Tbsp cocoa powder
    1/4 tsp baking powder (optional, but it makes it fluffy)
    2 Tbsp milk (dairy, almond, or soy)
    1 Tbsp oil (canola or sunflower, or avocado oil)
    2 Tbsp of chocolate chips (optional. I haven't tried it with them yet)

    Bake in a microwave for one minute (or a little less if you like brownies slightly squishy).
    Or bake in a toaster or regular oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes!

    Plus for this recipe, it can be vegan!

Supporting An LGBTQ+ Sibling

How can I support my Lgbtq+ sister going through puberty and in social situations? -Anonymous Hello there!  This is a very good question, and I hope my advice is helpful to you <3  The main thing is: Be there for her. If she has questions, do your best to answer them. If she needs a listening ear, or a big hug, sit there and let her talk, or supply said hug. Just simple things like that can go a long way, even if it doesn't seem like it. And don't judge her, or say her questions are silly, or…

Coming Out To Family

How do I come out to family? -Anonymous Hi there! This is a loaded question that has many different answers, because everyone's family situation is different. Before you come out to a family member, the biggest thing to consider is: Is your family homophopbic? If the answer is 'yes' or 'I don't know', then you should definitely think really hard about how you want to come out, and make sure you have a backup plan in case things don't go so well. If you're coming out in a maybe-iffy environment,…

Excercising When You Don't Want To

I despise PE. I always get picked last in activities, not because people don’t like me but because I have no athletic abilities whatsoever. I can’t run, I can’t hit, I can’t do push-ups... I want to get better, but I don’t want to do these things when I don’t have to (I know it’s important to exercise but I don’t like it, and I don’t like most sports). What should I do? –Anonymous    Hi! I’m sorry you dislike PE and feel like you always get picked last, captains choosing teams is really not the…

TikTok Users Being Mistreated

Why are people who like tik tok so mistreated on NMG? -Sophia   I'm very sorry that you feel that poeple are being mistreated because they like TikTok! I can assure you that making someon's opinion feel unwelcome - or worse, making the person feel unwelcome - is never the intention, and I apologize if it comes across that way on the website. I think that many NMG members have very strong opinions on TikTok (myself inclued), because the company that runs it has many problems, including (but not…
