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 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.
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.
Perfectly crispy chicken, with an assortment of dipping sauces (BBQ, Honey Mustard, and Ranch with hot sauce) and hot and crispy fries.
You know it’s going to be good, when they throw some decorative parsley on the plate.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
