Pot Brownies

Thanks to Peter Sellers movie "I Love You, Alice B. Toklas" in 1968, the pot brownie became popular and famouse. In one of the film's pivotal scene, Nancy, a beautiful hippie, dumps her cannabis stash into the bowl of an mixture along with milk, eggs and a box of fudge brownie mix. The iconic weed brownie became popular for two reasons: They whip up in a snap, and chocolate makes everything taste good. This recipe calls for cashews to complement the earthy moisture from the cannabutter, giving it a soft crunch.

Cheesy Cannabutter Spinach Frittata

Frittata is an Italian egg-based dish typically served up fresh for breakfast. Well normally frittatas are made on the stove, but my recipes use the stove instead to cut down the steps. This recipe requires no flipping or folding; this type of open-faced omelette is the perfect breakfast for gatherings. It's thick, healthy, delicious, and fuel of ideas for mornings. Though frittata is normally served as breakfast, it can be altered or kept just the way it is and turned into a snack or meal for any time of the day.
