Day 15 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Dunkaroos

Ingredients

  • Graham Crackers or Teddy Grahams
  • Frosting
  • Sprinkles (Optional)

This “recipe” doesn’t really require any steps. Literally just dip your crackers into some frosting and if you’re feeling fancy, some sprinkles! For our purposes, we used chocolate graham crackers and cream cheese frosting, but you guys can totally mix it up with your favorite combos. These are an homage to Dunkaroos, your favorite childhood snack. And if they weren’t your favorites, you’re lying.

Day 14 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Pizza Pockets

Day Fourteen! We’re almost there! We can see the finish line in sight! And we truly hope you guys are enjoying these recipes just as much as we’re making and sharing them with you.

Today’s recipe is essentially a savory poptart, and you know how much we like our poptarts here. But what is more quentisentially stoner than a pizza pocket or a hot pocket? Nothing. While these may not be “microwave” ready easy, these are quick, delicious, and semi-homemade. Now, if you don’t like sausage, don’t add sausage. Don’t like pepperoni? Add more sausage. You get the idea. Easy, yummy, and portable. How easy was that? We think Ina, might possibly approve of these delicious pockets of yum.

Day 12 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – TYL EATS LA

After 11 days of recipes and tricks, today we are taking the easy way out and sharing one of our favorite LA (Burbank) Eats. We actually discovered this place while babysitting and had been passing it by for years but never gave it a second glance because we just assumed it was an old people diner.

The restaurant we are speaking of is The Tallyrand located in Burbank on Olive Blvd.

Now, you may judge it on it’s dated exterior and typical “diner fare” but this place is truly a hidden gem. In a couple weeks we’ll do a full write up, but for now we’re going to talk about our favorite “stoner” dish: CHICKEN FINGERS. WE love chicken fingers and are always on the hunt for the best! When we came across the Tallyrand and we saw their chicken fingers, we knew it was love at first sight.

You know it’s going to be good, when they throw some decorative parsley on the plate.

Day 8 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Apple and Cheddar with Honey

 

Trader Joe's Special

Trader Joe’s Special! This snack is something we encountered at Trader Joe’s while our friend Kathy* was demoing it. We were standing there catching up with Kathy for like 20 minutes and in that time Christie had several samples. Sweet, salty, and floral = freaking delicious. Also, you feel a little healthier eating this because it’s just a honeycrisp apple, sharp cheddar and honey.

There really isn’t much instruction wise. Just cut your apples and cheese, lay said cheese on said apples and drizzle with honey. BAM. How bout them apples?

Day 5 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Snacking Cookie Dough

When we did research on classic stoner foods, cookie dough popped up in every list. This recipe is perfect for the munchies or anyone who feels a little dangerous every time you eat the cookie dough you know someone’s grandmother told you not to. This specific cookie dough is made to be eaten raw, because there is no egg. The only thing baked might be you.

P.S. Don’t try to bake this, it’s for snacking purposes only. Make this cookie dough, popcorn and pick a show on Netflix, that’s what we call church.

Day 4 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Bacon Jampanadas

Bacon Jampanadas

Bacon Jampanadas are the happiest accident we ever created. These were created because we had a lot of extra pie dough from making the pop-tarts, so we started searching the kitchen for other things to use so we don’t waste. I know, us and these damn pop-tarts! We can’t help that food-pockets are essential stoner food.

Anyway, an amazing idea presented itself, BACON JAM! Yes, smokey, sweet, savory goodness in a cute little portable pocket form. It’s like Polly Pocket, but Piggy Pocket, haha. Also, the name “Bacon Jampanadas” was an inspiration that was stumbled upon while eating these stoned.

Fruit Handpies (Homemade Poptarts)

We’re on our Gilmore Girls kick here and what’s more Gilmore than poptarts? Literally nothing. One of the promo’s was literally a tray of poptarts and an apple. And we all know where that led….but let’s stay on target.

So if you like Gilmore Girls like we do, you know that poptarts are staple in the Gilmore Household.

ggpop

And like with our fried rice, we knew that when the revival came out we wanted to make as many Gilmore Girl inspired recipes that we could. And what’s more Gilmore than poptarts?

Of course, buying poptarts is the easy solution but making them really isn’t as hard as it seems. Trust us. We use store bought pie dough and if you really want to take the easy way out you can buy pre-made filling at the store, and frost these with store bought icing. But we suggest at least trying them once like this.

Because once you have a homemade poptart, it’s REALLY hard to go back to the store bought kind.

Homemade Poptarts

Look at those beauties. And let us be real with you, these taste as good as they look. Buttery, flaky pie dough and a warm fruit filling? Topped with a homemade glaze? Seriously what could be better than that? Besides Gilmore Girls coming back for another season? The answer is homemade poptarts!

SUPER BOWL FRIED PICKLES

Fried Pickles

It’s the week of the Super Bowl and we are dedicated to brining you Super Bowl inspired recipes! We’ll be bringing you some old recipes and a ton of new recipes to make your Super Bowl parties super incredible and filled with tasty food.

Our first recipe is one of the first recipes we ever posted and our first experience with fried food. We thought frying food was really intimidating but once you do it one or two times, it’s really is not that scary or hard. But we do recommending having a thermometer to know the temperature of your oil. It really truly helps. And just remember, every time you put something in the oil the oil temperature will drop. So, in between batches wait for your oil to reheat.

Fried pickles are the perfect way to start off your super bowl party. Who doesn’t love pickles? They’re tangy, they’re crunchy, they’re salty, and fried pickles are the perfect finger food. These are a must at all of our get togethers. So get on the pickle train, because it’s leaving for flavor town…wow that was incredibly awkward to write, I’m embarrassed. Click below for our scrumptious fried pickle recipe and save me from myself.

Homemade Bagel Bites

DSC_0834

We love Bagel Bites. We know that we preach a lot about fresh foods, and only eating the best ingredients, but there is just something about Bagel Bites that are delicious and comforting. We could honestly, eat them all day long. #nojudgement

But while we do love occasionally binging on Bagel Bites, we wanted to try and make them ourselves. And the results? They were magical. Instead of mindlessly eating, these actually filled us up and kept us deliciously satiated like a good meal should.

And sure, Bagel Bites are super easy to make: open package, place on tray, cook, enjoy. But did you know that in the time it takes for Bagel Bites to warm in the oven, you could make your own homemade and mouthwatering bites? Yeah. If you’re skeptical, give these little guys a try. We promise, it’s worth the effort.

Holy Guacamole!

In preparation of the Fall heatwave in Los Angeles, we thought guacamole would be the perfect recipe to post today! Not only do we LOVE our avocados in this house/city/state, but we also didn’t want to make something that involved heat since it’s currently 97°F outside. The only heat we want is from the cayenne and chipotle peppers!

Holy Guacamole! 

Ingredients

  • 4 Large Has Avocados (Reserve one pit)
  • 1 Jalapeño (Deseed and diced)
  • 1/2 White Onion (Finely diced)
  • 2 Roma Tomatos (Deseeded and diced)
  • 1 Large Clove Garlic (Diced)
  • Garlic Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Chipotle Pepper
  • Green Onions (Chopped)

Step 1: 

In a large a bowl, using an electric mixer, blend the avocados until no longer large and chunky.

Step 2: 

Next, add the diced jalapeños, onion, tomatoes, and garlic and stir to combine.

Step 3: 

Add your garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne and chipotle and mix well. Adjust seasonings to your liking.

Step 4:

To serve, place your reserved avocado pit in a bowl and cover with the guacamole. Sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve.

The pit will help the guacamole from oxidizing, but if you really want to prevent oxidation, sprinkle your guacamole with either fresh lemon or lime juice.
