  • Everybody has one of those days where they need a big breakfast for a big day. Maybe you plan on going for an 8hr hike or you have to be running all over the city you live in. Days like these you need quite a bit of energy and a big well balanced breakfast will be what gets you through it. Cooking up these delectable masa cakes as part of a dish will be your one way ticket to energy. And because they are lightly medicated with 1/2 gram each, you won't have to worry about consuming 1 whole serving. Another bonus to this recipe is that Sour Diesel is an Sativa strain which will keep you full of energy. The Sour Diesel also adds a great flavor profile to the masa cakes which is a totally unique experience in itself. Cook these guys up to serve with eggs, chorizo, a side of fresh fruit and your favorite cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy your day and the energy that good food gives you :)

    Mise en Place:

    3 cups masa harina
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 cup shortening with 6 grams sour diesel activated in it
    1 cup shredded adobera cheese
    2/3 cup chicken stock
    3 tablespoons oilve oil
    2 cups spinach
    1/2 cup minced vidalia onion
    1/2 cup minced garlic

    Directions:

    In a extra large cast iron skillet sweat the spinach, onion, garlic and olive oil until translucent on low. Take it off the heat after 8 minutes of cooking and let the vegetables cool. When completely cool, mix in cheese and set aside in a separate bowl. Do not wash the skillet, you will be able to use it for the next step and it will be already seasoned for you. This adds a great finishing flavor to the masa cakes.

    In a another bowl combine the masa harina, salt, red pepper flakes, and baking powder. Slowly add the chicken stock to the dry mixture and knead with your hands. Then cut in the shorting to this mixture and continue to knead the dough. When the mixture begins to come together add in the vegetable mixture and continue to knead until incorporated. Use a scale to portion out 12 servings then mold each serving with your hands into a little cake.

    Put the skillet back on the stove and set at medium high. Add a little olive oil if you feel the skillet is too dry. Sear each side of the cakes for approximately 3 minutes. When they are golden pull from the heat and place the skillet in the oven at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Pull from the oven and serve :)


  • Ever have one of those days where you just want to pamper yourself and just unwind from long stressful work week? Well have I got the recipe for you! Bake up a bunch of these delicate little treats and slip into the waves of each sweet bite. Snuggle into your favorite chair, brew a cup of tea and let your mind be at ease.

    Mise en place:

    3 cups flour
    3 cups sugar
    1 1/2 cup shortening infused with 20 grams Strawberry Haze Kief
    6 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 cup milk
    3 teaspoons baking soda
    1 cup strawberry jam
    1 cup buttercream
    pre-made poured fondant

    Sift the flour and baking soda together in a bowl. Cream the cannabutter and sugar together in a bowl. When the mixture is combined slowly add in the eggs and vanilla until fully incorporated. Finally alternately mix in the flour mixture and milk. Beat for 5 1/2 minutes on medium speed. Pour onto full sheet pan lined with parchment paper and sprayed with baking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes. This recipe will yield 40 petit fours with a 1/2 gram each.

    Let the cake cool then very thinly spread the strawberry jam across the whole cake. Then add a very thin layer of buttercream on top of the strawberry jam. To prevent the two layers from mixing into each other you need to throw all the buttercream into the center of the cake and then slowly spread it out across the cake. Freeze the cake for roughly 25 minutes then pull from the freezer. Cut the cake into 40 squares and freeze again for 25 minutes. You need to place the freshly cut petit fours onto a wire rack that is over a sheet pan.

    While the cake is freezing, you need to start making the fondant glaze. On a double broiler melt the fondant with 1/4 cup of water. Stir constantly until the fondant is liquid. You may need to add more water depending on the consistency. When the fondant is ready it will be thin enough to cover the lines on one of your fingers but not thick enough that it looks like wax. Pull the petit fours from the freezer and slowly pour the mixture over each one. Let them set and dry which will take approximately 30 minutes. While they are drying feel free to decorate the tops with royal icing, chocolate, sugar crystals or anything else that is appealing to you. Serve with tea or coffee for a very special treat!



  • Mise en place:

    3 cups all purpose flour
    2 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 tablespoon fresh basil
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1 tablespoon minced onion
    1 teaspoon salt
    12 ounces bud light
    3.5 gram ground cannabis preferably a sweet Sativa
    *Have extra olive oil and sea salt in reserve

    Directions:

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, basil, garlic, onion, salt and cannabis until combined. Then slowly stir in the beer and olive oil until the mixture is fully incorporated. Do not over mix. The batter will be lumpy and very sticky. Pour into a 8-inch loaf pan and using your olive oil reserve gently drizzle it over the top of the batter. Finish by sprinkling sea salt all over the top and put it into the oven to bake for 45-55mins.

    The type of beer and herbs you choose for this recipe will affect the flavor. I would suggest creating this recipe and see what you like or dislike about it. Then, go ahead and throw in your own type of beer and herbs to see what flavor profile you like best. Have fun with it and enjoy yourself :)
