While my passion may lay in cooking delicious meals and baking tasty treats, I still live the “American Dream” during the day by working the old 9-5. Luckily my “9-5” is actually a 6-3 which gives me more time in the afternoon to work on coming up with new ideas and recipes to try. And my job is always closed on Sundays so I have that guaranteed day to myself. But once in awhile there is an even rarer occurrence when both the wife and I both have off on Sunday.
This past Sunday was one of those times; we decided to spend the time together and bake up some cookies for the week. After debating over a couple ideas, we couldn’t decide on just one so doubled our efforts and went with two different kinds. To save time on all the measuring that comes with baking, we took liberties with shortcuts on each recipe with wondrous results. I have always liked the combination of pistachio and white chocolate together in a cookie.
At my old job, we made a pistachio white chocolate chip cookie and everyone clambered in to grab them while they could. By cutting back on the flour in the recipe and subbing it with pistachio pudding mix, I was able to give these extremely moist cookies a nice green color to go with the theme. It is important to use CLEAR vanilla extract and restrain the use of brown sugar; deviating from those recommendations can muddy the color of the cookies.

Believe it or not, the 1 gram cannabutter recipe is real and it works! So, a few weeks back I got my hands on some pretty potent Lemon OG Kush - 2 grams of flower to be exact. Rolling one gram up into a nice joint, I sat leisurely and well-medicated in my kitchen thinking, 'Maybe I can make cannabutter with this 1 gram that I have.'
From the time we were little kids, we have always enjoyed the wondrous flavors infused into lollipops. Luckily, we now have lollipops fit for the adult connoisseur. These tasty treats won’t take longer than 15-20 minutes and are a simple way to make some tasty medication. Let’s get started!
