5 Edible Ideas Just In Time For Winter

Look, a few months ago, we gave you some dope edible recipes that were healthy enough to keep your beach bod in top shape throughout summer. Well, summer is over so we’re taking back everything we said in that blog about how important it is to eat healthy. The weather is getting colder and it’s time to start indulging in sweet treats and comfort food again (or maybe you’ve been doing that year-round, which is fine too). Either way, go preheat your ovens and make a shopping list of everything you’ll need to create these 5 mouthwatering cannabis recipes that will keep you toasty and toasted all winter long. (On second thought - make that shopping list first, go to the store, and then preheat your ovens once you are ready to bake, Safety first, people).

Mac And Cheese: This is a recipe that literally anyone can make. You could get fancy and create your own cheese sauce, but we all know nothing tastes quite as good as boxed macaroni and cheese. Just substitute 1-2 teaspoons of cannabutter in place of normal butter (or however much cannabutter you want to consume in the end, because let's be honest, you might end up eating all of the mac and cheese). If you want to add your own spin, throw in some crispy bacon or our childhood favorite, slices of hot dog. Put the mac and cheese in a baking dish and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and bake in the oven for a crispy top. Add a few drops of our cheese terpenes to really enhance the flavor. As with all items on this list, just make sure you are taking portions into consideration. While we’ve all experienced an innocent food coma from eating a fourth bowl of mac and cheese, you don’t want to accidentally over-indulge in this special recipe. If you think you’ll eat the whole box, cut down on the cannabutter for good measure.

Cannabis Chili: Chili is an easy recipe because you really can’t mess it up. While you could get some canned chili and add a few drops of cannabis concentrate, that would be an insult to chili. Homemade chili is always best, and the longer you let the flavors melt together, the better it will be. Start by dicing an onion and a couple cloves of garlic. Heat a couple tablespoons of cannabis-infused olive oil or cannabutter in a big pot (no pun intended) over medium heat, and saute the onion and garlic together. Once these are cooked through, add a pound of ground beef and cook until brown. After that, add a packet of chili spices or use your favorite spice recipe, as well as a can of diced tomatoes and some kidney beans. Let it all simmer for as long as you like, or throw it all in a crockpot on low heat while you’re at work. Just like the mac and cheese, we recommend pairing this comfort food with our cheese terpenes.

Pumpkin Roll: Why roll blunts when you can roll pumpkin? If you haven’t experienced the almighty Pumpkin Roll, then frankly you should reevaluate your life choices and start making this a staple in your home. Most cans of pumpkin puree you get at the store will have a pumpkin roll recipe on the back you can follow, or just search the internet for a recipe that looks good. You’ll need a can of pumpkin puree and normal baking supplies like flour, sugar, etc. The trick to this recipe is in the cream cheese frosting. Let a block of cream cheese warm up to room temperature and beat together with one cup of powdered sugar (or more, we’re not judging), a splash of vanilla extract, and a stick of butter - of which you can replace however much you’d like with cannabutter. To add some extra flavor, choose one of our pure terpenes that have either a sweet or spicy aroma, and stay away from fruity flavors.

Shepherd's Pie: First of all, don’t get your hopes up. This isn’t a dessert pie full of sugar and sweet fruits. Second of all, do get your hopes up because this is a pie covered with mashed potatoes and, really, what more do you need? This is a staple in Europe, but is ideal for cold weather and makes great leftovers. Start by boiling some peeled potatoes to make mashed potatoes. Then, saute a chopped onion and a few cloves of garlic over medium heat in a couple tablespoons of cannabutter. Add a pound of ground beef and cook until brown. Add a half cup of beef broth and a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce for flavor. Lastly, throw in a bag of frozen peas and carrots (we had to include vegetables somewhere). Let this mixture simmer until it turns into a gravy-like consistency and set aside. Meanwhile, make your mashed potatoes to your liking. Feel free to add more cannabutter or some cheese terpenes. In a baking dish, put your meat mixture on bottom and pack your mashed potatoes on top. Bake in the oven at 400-degrees for about thirty minutes or until the potatoes start to brown. Try to avoid eating this all in one sitting, as you will be very disappointed the next day when you don’t have leftovers.    

Sugar Cookies: Sugar cookies may have been the first sign that the holiday season was coming up when we were kids, but we’ve put an adult spin on a wintertime favorite. To make these cookies, mix together 1 cup of butter (of which however much you like can be cannabutter depending on how potent you want your cookies, 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 2.5 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and one 1 teaspoon of salt. Feel free to add a few drops of Girl Scout Cookie terpenes for extra sweetness. Let the dough chill for a couple hours. When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees and roll out the dough onto a floured surface. Use your favorite cookie cutters or just cut them by hand, and cook for about ten minutes. Leave a few cookies out for Santa to avoid getting coal in your stocking.
