Danksgiving Side: Herb-N-Herb Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Danksgiving Side: Herb-N-Herb Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

cannabis infused mashed potatoes, cannabis holiday recipes There’s no doubt about it. It’s (buh buh buhhhhhhhh) The Holidays. We’re only four days away from the feast day to end all feast days. Here at Wake & Bake HQ, that means we’ll be praising all of the gods of Danksgiving. After that we’ll slide right into Nap Friday. Before we know it, it’ll be Highnukka. And after that it’s Kushmas. Then, it’s game over until Easter… which unfortunately doesn’t fall on 4/20 again this year, because I was really on a roll with these marijuana holiday puns.  Since we’re already all up in the holidays, I’d like to spend the rest of this week sharing new holiday-themed cannabis-infused recipes so we’re not all stuck eating the same ole “special brownies” this year.

Now… I don’t want to sound like a Scrooge McDuck. But every year it seems to get harder and harder to get swept up into the magic of the holiday season. Let’s all get something straight here. American winter holidays are good for three things:

1. Pumpkin Pie Spice
2. The Christmas Tree Smell
3. The license to eat decadent foods morning, noon, and night for an entire month only to whine about this behavior, put yourself on a guilt trip, and fast for the first three days of January before launching yourself back into the holiday cookie tin.


Let’s enjoy it while we can.


Yesterday, I shared one of my favorite cannabis infused appetizers: Artichoke Dip. Today, we’re launching into the main meal with one of my favorite infused sides. This recipe is included with a bunch of other new stuff in Wake & Bake: a cookbook which is on the presses and will be ready to ship out soooon! If you can’t wait for a hard copy, I kicked off Cyber monday a week early so you can download the e-book for 50% off!

Herb-N-Herb Roasted Garlic Mashers

One of the best ways to incorporate cannabis into your main meal is in the taters. These Herb-N-Herb Roasted Garlic Mashers pair perfectly with the subtle flavor of cannabis and fit in well with virtually every holiday meal. Plus, they’re uncomplicated and impossible to fudge up.

1. Preheat oven to 425°

2. Cut the top off of:

1 Head Garlic

3. Drizzle garlic with Olive Oil and cover with tinfoil. Bake until fragrant and tender (about 30-40 minutes).

4. In a large stockpot, combine:

2 Pounds of Potatoes

Cold Water (enough to cover potatoes)


5. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender.

6. Once potatoes are tender and garlic is roasted, remove garlic cloves and smash with a wooden spoon. Drain the potatoes and mash until smooth.

7. In a large mixing bowl, combine:

Mashed Potatoes

Smashed Garlic

1 T Dried Parsley Flakes

1/2-1 tsp Onion Powder (optional)

2 T Green Monster Oil or Infused Walnut Oil

3 T Coconut Oil

1/2-3/4 Cup Almond milk *unsweetened)

8. Mash all ingredients until smooth. Serve warm.

Serves 6 depending on the strength of your oil. Always test your oil before using in recipes and adjust recipe as needed. This recipe contains 6 t doses of marijuana infused oil.

So… What are you all making “special” this holiday season?

Much love,


Cannabliss Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Cannabliss Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Cannabliss Ice Cream

This morning, someone sent me an email asking if I was still “actively blogging.” That was a good question, and it really inspired me to get on my ass and write some sh*t. I’d say that I’m more of a semi-retired blogger these days. I still check my email, but I rarely put on my blogger hat on, and you can bet your ass that I won’t be putting on pants with a zipper for the next week (or ever).

Aren’t you glad I’m back?

I’ve written so many posts in my mind the past few weeks while slaving over some awesome holiday stuff in the kitchen (gingerbread cookies, sweet potato pie truffles, pumpkin/maple bars). And while I didn’t share anything last month,  I’ve been cooking and yoga-ing my ass off to create a bunch of new books and a ton of blog material (maybe I’m more of a blogging ninja monk, hanging out in my cave before coming to whoop some ass)…. Man, there are already so many asses in this post. I guess I’m rusty. Anyone want to look up synonyms for the word ass?

weed food party time

So… that’s what life looked like 2 days ago… and yesterday, I got sick from eating too much candy food… Moderation in everything folks.

Where was I? Oh yeah. I’m making way too many books right now. Want to hear about it? Want to hear about it right now? You wan’t to hear about it later? Want to never hear about it? Too bad.

Spoiler Alert: I’m working on two cookbooks with Mrs. Rita Marley and a cannabis and yoga book called Cannabliss Yoga… All things to be totally stoked about! But today, I’m doing something even more stoke-worthy. I’m coming out of semi-retired blogger glory to share some good/bad news and an INCREDIBLE, EASY and super VERSITILE recipe for homemade coconut milk ice cream (with marijuana or without).

Oh yeah.. About that bad news… I’m a bit past my deadline on going to print on the second edition of Wake & Bake. It’s still only available for pre-order and it won’t be available for a couple more weeks. To anyone who ordered it when I switched over several weeks ago… It’s on its way! And it’s going to be way way WAY iller. Since Wake & Bake 2 won’t be released now, I decided to really really beef up the second edition with a TON of new recipes and advanced tutorials. It’s going to be delightful… But it’s going to take a minute.

So, now that you know that I’ve just been on a book making spree, and that I still love and care about you and your access to healthy and tasty weed food recipes, let’s get to my new favorite thing on this planet.

Vanilla Cannabliss Coconut Milk Ice Cream (with marijuana) 

Frozen Coconut Milk


1. Line an 8X8 inch pan with parchment paper. This is a necessary step. If you don’t line the pan, the coconut milk will be in there until it melts again, and then you’d have to freeze it again, and then you’d have to re-thaw it, and then you’d have to do that until you go… duh… I should use parchment paper. Then line the pan, pour the twice melted coconut milk into it and voila! You’ve completed step 1.
2. Shake up:

2 Cans of Full Fat Coconut Milk (not lite). I sometimes use the Thai Kitchen Organic Unsweetened. I sometimes use another one that I forget the name of.

3. Open and pour the cans of coconut milk into the parchment lined pan.
4. Freeze for a few hours or overnight. Using a knife, cut ¼ chunk of the frozen coconut milk out of the pan. If it got super frozen, leave it out to thaw for a half hour to an hour.
5. In a food processor, combine:

Frozen Coconut Milk Chunk

1/2 t vanilla

1-2 T Maple Syrup

Pinch of Pumpkin Spice/Cinnamon (optional, but shit, it’s fall)

Pinch of Salt

1/2t -1/2 T Cannabis Infused Oil (melted)*

5.a. Stir in optional chunky ingredients (chunks of chocolate/cookies/hot fudge swirl/etc.)
6. Once Smooth, pour into a small glass container. Immediately put in the freezer.
7. Every 10 minutes, stir until it gets firm enough to scoop out (about 30 minutes).

*The potency of your oil is subject to the techniques you use and the quality of your trim/buds. If you use the Easiest Cannanbis Infused Oil recipe, your oil may be less potent than if you decarboxylate your marijuana and add sunflower lecithin to your oil. Always test your dosage by starting low and going slow. When I make oil these days, I start testing at 1/8-1/4 teaspoon. On my last batch, it was purrrdy strong at ¼ Teaspoon. When I first started, I used oils that were good at about ½ Tablespoon-1 Tablespoon. So I know first hand that those variables can completely change your results.

weed ice cream

So… can you see how many possibilities there are with this recipe? I’ve already made a mint cocoa, nanner/nut butter, gingerbread, and… wait for it…

A Cannabliss Ice Cream Latte


Cannabliss Latte in a Pipemug

Behold… The Pipemug: an excellent lifestyle choice brought to you by Zang Products.

Oh yeah. I got my snotty barista on yesterday. And check that sh*t out… There’s nothing better than some homespun coconut ice cream and coffee in a loaded Pipemug. I brought this one to the farmer for his coffee break and he was way nice to me for the rest of the day. I mean, he’s usually very nice, but he was like, waaay nice to me. Plus he stayed up until 3am workin’ hard to support his semi-retired-blogger-wife-to-be. Thanks Pipemug!

coconut ice cream in the food processor


All you do is get to step 5, and scoop the ice cream directly onto a hot cup of coffee or Yerba Mate and sprinkle with (you probably guessed it)… Pumpkin Pie Spice/Cinnamon. Which is optional again, but it’s fall… dammit. Use the Pumpkin Pie Spice now while you can.

Chunky things like cookies probably wouldn’t work in a latte, but organic flavorings like mint or hazelnut would probably be amazing.



While the farmer and I are moving out at the end of the month, and we’re trying to get al of these books out for the holiday season, and it’s harvest time, and we’re busy busy all day… In spite of all that, life has become very sweet. Long days in the kitchen and long weekends with the most playful, intuitive, joyful and intelligent yogi goddesses a woman could ask to be around. Winding down this crazy year in this beautiful place with the farmer, my husband-to-be, my favorite human being on the planet.

Spending the chilly, dry southwestern colorado evenings snugged up next to the person you love (after a summer of pushing the covers onto each other and building pillow barricades for body heat deflection)?

Spending a rainy day catching up on sleep and watching Harry Potter that you scored at library?

Putting pumpkin pie spice in everything?

Yes. Please.

and… Thank you.

Fall is such a beautiful time for slowing down and taking the time to really be grateful for all of the beauty that’s in your world. It’s there. You just have to look at it.

Even though you’re insanely busy. Even though things may not be going perfectly. Even if you overextended the shit out of yourself. Even if you don’t feel so hot, and your tired and you’re ready for a beach in Thailand. Even if you want to sleeeeeep. Take a moment right now to be grateful.

And then eat ice cream.

Pot Cocoa = Hot Cocoa With Pot in it

Pot Cocoa = Hot Cocoa With Pot in it

4 ingredients

When I first posted this recipe, I must have been ripped as hell. I was yammering on about Mayans and Pan-Europeans and cracker-ass-crackers… and it didn’t make any sense at all. Not in the slightest.

Well, folks… Now I’m re-writing it… and again, I’m ripped as hell. So I’m not making any promises about quality improvement. Or sense making ability. What I will promise, is that this Pot Cocoa is the shit.

It’s been awhile since I’ve made it, since this is a rewrite and all, but I remember that it was Hot Cocoa that had marijuana in it. And when I tasted it, the green light over my dome went off and thought “this recipe pun writes itself”.

So make it. Write something down. Make it again. And go back to that thing you already wrote down. Say, “screw that shit. I can do better.” And then prove yourself wrong.


3/4 Cup Nut Milk or Milk
1T High Quality Cocoa Powder
1 T Sugar or Honey
1t- 1T Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil or Butter


1. Mix Cocoa + Sugar in a mug.pot cocoa

Baking With Cannabis: Special Brownie Bites

Baking With Cannabis: Special Brownie Bites


“You’re special. You’re like a unique snowflake with an intricate pattern, doing a distinct dance. You special little snowflake, you.” –Wake & Bake: a cookbook

In the book, after I call you a special snowflake, I go on to tell you all sorts of cool stuff about your DNA. But I’m not going to do that here, because that would be plagiarizing.

However, speaking of snowflakes, I hear that most of the country is experiencing one of the coldest winters in history (or in awhile). I don’t know anything about that because in my little corner of Colorado, we’ve had creepily beautiful weather this winter, and I haven’t checked the weather in over a month. Same old sixty degree days. Sun keeps shining all of the time. I might break out into some mad John Denver if it keeps on.

I’m not trying to rub it in your face or anything, I’m just trying to stick with the theme of this blog post… which was???

[Hit "Continue Reading" to get back on topic and for the Recipe & Method]


That you’re special! And every winter is special! And my winter can be awesome, but that doesn’t make yours any less awesome, even if your shit is covered in 6 feet of snow and it’s 30 below… and I’m going hiking today.

Okay guys, maybe I am gloating a little. But give me a break. I spent 6 years in Fargo, North Dakota. SIX. years… in a place that people only make jokes about. And the only jokes are either wood chipper or winter weather themed.

It’s about time I know what outside feels like for more than three months a year. And I finally live in a place where people say things like “You’re so lucky to live there.” Shit yes I am.

But brownies were the first edible I ever ate in that cold, dark city, with its high train track mortality rate, and its unmistakable collective drinking problem. Fargo’s where I started smoking weed. It’s where I started writing.


Every day, I would get back from school, grab my beloved bong (Edna) out of the fridge, and write scripts for things like the feature film Stoner Zombies, and the Corinne’s Game Emporium commercial.

And those days, however shitty and wintery, however drunken and frostbitten, well, they were still special.

Here’s a recipe for some Special Brownie Bites. May your day be special, and may you eat these warm brownies straight from the oven and look back fondly on those old, cold and shitty times.

Much Love,

Baking With Cannabis: Snickerdoodles

Baking With Cannabis: Snickerdoodles



Sorry everyone! After I posted that sweet Snickerdoodles recipe this morning, and after I shared it with everyone, I went and accidentally deleted the entire Wake & Bake website.

Yes. I did that.

No. I was not baked.

It would have been more understandable if I was. The website is back up and running, but I lost all of the content from the newly founded Wake & Bake blog. It was a bummer, and I’m sorry about pushing a Snickerdoodle recipe on you and then pulling it out from underneath you ten minutes later.

So, while I don’t have the original post, I’m going to try and recreate it. Right here. Right now. It’ll be something like Tribute, by Jack Black.

This is not, the greatest post in the wo-orld.


This is just a tribute.

I crashed the site that held the greatest post in the wo-orld.


And this is a tri-ibu-uuute.

So, last night (pre-disaster), I talked to Larry Love on the entertaining and informative Medical Marijuana Radio. That guy is fan.tastic. He asked me for my favorite cannabis cookie recipe, and radio listeners around the globe got to listen to crickets chirp, and hear me mumble things about how hard it is to pick that kind of thing, until finally… I flipped through the book and landed on the infamous Snickerdoodle.

It’s my go-to when I’m baking with cannabis or without cannabis. What can I say? I was conceived, gestated and raised in the midwest where the Snickerdoodle is king… then I moved to Colorado and started putting weed in my food.

The Joy of Cooking (via Wikipedia) claims the word Snickerdoodle came from the bastardization of the German word Schneckennudeln, meaning “snail noodles.”

And doesn’t that shit sound appetizing?

Well, we’ve skipped the snails and added the giggles to these “Special” Snickerdoodles. Enjoy!

(The Green Monsta Oil is a cannabis infused coconut oil that I’ll be reposting soon. Until then, you can substitute any infused oil or butter)
