Try this liquid marijuana drink recipe with bananas, yogurt, peanut butter and canna-coconut oil. This cheery blend can be tweaked for daytime or night.
Let’s just come out and say it: Trifle is the perfect dessert. Cake, custard, fruit and whipped cream. Come on, how could a dish be any better? Well, I’ll tell you how: Add weed.
As we leave winter behind, things are starting to green up. So cooking/smoking of the green is how we’ll roll with this batch of tasty sugar cookies topped with infused frosting.
This Valentine’s Day recipe for a pot-infused caramel sauce — meant to be poured over tiny ice cream balls — is as decadent as it is delicious.
Phyllo dough is an amazing way to medicate your baked delights. Since each sheet needs to be brushed with either cannabutter or canna-oil, you end up with flaky layers of canna-manna.
Try your hand at a Ganjabread House. (Or would that be a Gingerbread Grow House?) Either way, Mary and I had a blast designing our gingerbread creation, and if you let your imagination be your guide, you’ll have just as much fun.
Marijuana recipe: This triple-infused pumpkin pie recipe goes the distance, with a medicated crust, filling and whipped cream to top it off.
This is the best Halloween centerpiece ever for an adults-only party. There were lots of ways to go here, so many fun things to do, but I think I have made the best choice. Plus, white chocolate and weed are simply perfect together.
Ganja food gifts are on my holiday list, both to give and hopefully to get. The flavors are strong with this infused pecan pie, and making the weed taste go away was as easy as … well, pie.
My goal for the day: Make some seasoned cannabutters, good for medicating and tasty for snacking. It helped that one of my grower friends was coming over to give us a harvesting lesson on three lovely plants.
The last few nights I’ve had a craving for peanut butter. And this was no normal craving, mind you. I made a PB pie (with chocolate crust) and some PB dressing for an Asian-inspired noodle dish — both medicated, of course. And today I went for a small batch of peanut butter cookies.
Chef Laurie just loves a good stuffed baked potato. It’s a simple, cheap meal that makes a great lunch or dinner. Add some pot, and it’s even better.
Key lime pie is a magical combination of thick and dangerously decadent condensed milk with eggs and key lime juice. The weed is in the graham cracker crust of this dessert.
Since the cool weather is coming it seemed that making homemade canna-mayonnaise would be a useful skill to work on. This is an easy-to-make condiment that will keep for about 5-6 days covered in the fridge.
Thai iced tea and Thai iced coffee are among my favorite summer drinks. I decided that combining condensed milk and cannabutter was a logical way to infuse this beverage.
Pretty much any recipe will take away from the purity of that “tomato alone” experience — therefore, I created a recipe that allows the fresh flavors of all the ingredients to shine. The tomato is the star in this dish but there are lots of other important characters.
When there is an abundance of fruit in season, it is tough to decide what to turn into a crisp, crumble, cobbler or pie. So many great choices and stellar combinations.
Magical Butter costs about $175, and although it is not complex and a few say overpriced, it does allow me to totally go about my business and not give it a thought.
Starting out with a jar of gifted, locally-made Thai red curry paste, and pairing that with chicken and vegetables seems like a perfect way to try the savory spice blend. The foundation of the meal starts with infused canna-coconut oil.
I have medicated the canna-olive oil for this salad with the hybrid strain Blue Dream. Some people like to taste the weed in their food, and some do not. Personally, I think that a hint is nice, psychologically it helps to prepare me for the medible experience.
I have been doing a bit of hiking recently and have decided to make a batch of dried fruit bars to bring along. They don’t have to be refrigerated, which is a huge plus this time of year.
Here’s our killer triple chocolate pot brownie recipe. Serve them up with fresh berries and whipped cream.
This creamy pop is my medicated version of the creamy and wonderful Mango Lassi beverage, served in Indian restaurants.
This sandwich is the bomb. The bread gets crusty, the cheese gets melty, the weed kicks in and everything is beautiful! In its own way. (Lame song reference!) The strain I used for the olive oil is called Dutch Treat. With a THC level of 22 percent, this weed is intense, but not overpowering at all.
The beans are cooking in the crockpot as I write, and after two hours they are starting to smell really good and everything in the pot is coming together in a smoky, porky kind of way.
I love baking with almonds. This cake is crazy moist and has a fabulous flavor. The house smells so good when it is baking, you have to come over! And the one bowl thing is a delight.
The best-loved version in my house is made with arugula and walnuts. It’s often made with olive oil that has been infused with cannabis.
I decided to bake some leftover fresh fruit with medicated granola, and let me say that this is one awesome dessert. My favorites are the peaches and pears, but honestly they all taste great.
Asparagus is a great vegetable; versatile, easy to cook, can be served hot or cold, and can be prepared all fancy and elegant or rustic and simple. Rustic and simple is how I roll, and this pasta is a breeze.
I’m sure you have noticed the huge variety of hummus flavors out there. Well, just make your own. Add a couple of tablespoons (or more) of things like roasted peppers, pine nuts, artichoke hearts; don’t hold back. For this recipe, I added a half-cup of fresh chopped spinach.
Granola bars are, for the most part, crunchy or chewy. Since chewy is always my preference, this bar rocks. There are many options for the additions. While this combo of chocolate and nuts is my favorite so far, I have also tried it with dried cranberries and ginger, which I liked. I may drizzle a few pieces with canna-chocolate next time.
This shrimp quesadilla is made with either cannabutter or canna-oil. The tortillas get crispy and cheesy, and they pair well with the salsa that I made pretty spicy, but that is your call.
I love a sautéed banana, so creamy and satisfying. This simple-to-make caramel sauce is just delightfully delicious, and if you must, a scoop of ice cream on top would not be anything to be ashamed of.
Mini peppers have few seeds to remove, so they are super easy to prepare. You could do the same thing with jalapenos, whose heat is mellowed by the time in the oven, but these mini peppers are sweet and not hot at all.
This spanakopita recipe is a “healthy” comfort food. Spinach, ricotta, cannabis … three of my favorites right there. The canna-olive oil crisps the paper-thin sheets of phyllo dough and renders them too good to believe.
When cooked this way, chicken is crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Too often it’s the unappealing opposite. While the chicken is in the oven there’s time to prepare a sauce, or side, or toss a salad.
A marinated skirt steak in an herbaceous, tangy chimichurri sauce is a perfect complement to a side of earthy potatoes and mushrooms.
I think that a marijuana-enhanced smoothie is a dream come true. A tall, frothy glass of blended fruits and vegetables, with key ingredients that were previously sautéed in canna-coconut oil.
Where a buzz hits you can tell you a lot about what you’ll be in for. Here, the 303 Kush sat in the center of my head — right behind my eyes — and camped out. This is the kind of “Magic Eye High” where you find yourself looking at something, but also through it at the same time. And, to be fair, this is exactly what I was looking for.
A fascinating study in Health Affairs last year by a father-daughter pair of public policy researchers found that Medicare prescriptions for things like painkillers, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications dropped sharply in states that introduced a medical marijuana program. The implication? Offered the choice between taking medication prescribed by a doctor…
