The Stoner's Cookbook (in progress)
Posted Dec 12, 1999
1 large bag of M&Ms(tm) (Regular)
1 large bag of Skittles(tm) (Regular)
1. Combine both bags into a bowl and toss.
2. Transfer to presentation bowl with handcuffs for garnish.
Notes: Don't tell your friends what these are, it will mess with
their addled minds -- but in a pleasant way.
Peanut M&Ms of Tropical Skittles *can* be used but, ew!
can also be used for garniture for cakes/cookies, but in
that case be sure to alternate your Ss and Ms.
Super Easy Cheese Quesadias (Alana)
Type: Craving (or whole meal if you're lazy like me)
Tortilla flat bread (as many as desired)
butter or margarine
grated cheese (as much as you like)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Coat both sides of each tortilla with a thin layer of butter or
3. Place each buttered tortilla in a single layer on a cookie
sheet or other large flat metal thing no need to butter (unless
you're seriously butter obsessed).
4. Sprinkle as much cheese as you like on each tortilla (the more
cheese you put the longer it'll take to cook).
5. Put those suckers in the oven until cheese is melty and tortilla's
look all air pocketty and wrinkled.
6. Remove from oven, cut into slices like you would a pizza and serve
alone or with a dipping sauce of your choice.
Notes: Recomended dipping sauce idea's: Salsa, Pizza sauce, Spagetti
sauce or anything tomato like but please God not ketchup,
what are you animals.
* Note if you have left over cooked taco filling it is also
really yummy if added below the cheese layer.
Dante's Infernal Potatoes (Nathan)
*(next time I come, well make these again and measure the quantities)*
Type: Craving/Feast - *maybe instead of Snack we could use Craving*
1 bag of waxy potatoes (those are the thin skined ones)
3 Scotch Bonnet peppers
Xml Olive oil
Xml Hot Pepper Oil
Indian chile powder
Flaked red chilies
1. Wash Potatoes and cut into large chunks.
2. Place chunks in large saucepan and cover with water.
3. Parboil the potatos for 10 - 15 minutes.
4. While that boils, chop the peppers, rosemary and parsley; lightly
coat some cookie sheets with oil; and preheat the oven to 375 F.
5. Strain the potatoes and let them sit in a colander to let the
steam go off -- if they are too wet when the go into the pan,
they will stick.
6. In a large bowl combine the oil, pepper oil, peppers, and
Tobasco, as well as the rest of the spices.
7. Toss the potatoes in the oil. If you dont have a huge bowl -- do
this in stages, but be sure to conserve enough oil mixture.
8. Arange the potatoes in a single layer on the cookie sheets, and
roast them on the bottom rack until they are cooked through (not
hard in middle.
9. Taste one -- adjust seasoning if necessary have a glass of water
if neccesary, and place sheets on the top rack and broil them
until they look brown and yummy.
10. Smoke a bowl and enjoy, but make sure you have a drink!
Notes: You can add/substitute any other types of hotpeppers or
hotsauces -- go crazy, but don't be a hero -- remember that
sensation is *enhanced* when you are stoned. We don't want
Chocolate Covered Pretzles (suggested by Angela)
1 Bag of Pretzles
1 Block of semi-sweet chocolate
1. Set up a double boiler by placing a stainless steel bowl over a
pot of gently boiling water.
2. Break the chocolate into smallinsh chunks.
3. Melt the chocolate in the bowl, stiring and adding pieces of
chocolate until it is all melted.
4. Dip the pretzles one at a time into the chocolate and place on a
plate or tray covered with silicon/wax paper.
5. Let them cool and enjoy (unless you have ever watched Mallrats,
then you might not be able to do it.)
Notes: This is a great stoner treat since it combines savory and
sweet along with smooth and crunchy; this is the kind of
interesting combination that is intensified by marijuana.
Make sure that the bowl you use and the spoon you use to stir
with are COMPLETELY DRY. Water, even a drop, will make the
chocolate firm up immediately.
You can use this recipe for dipping anything, strawberries,
fruit wedges, hell, even pickles if that's your bag.
Okay - from talking to people, there are lots of foods that people crave while stoned, not neccesarily anything you could put a recipe of, but I think we should include them for the sake of completeness.
It could be a "Cool Foods" section or something, think of a good name ...
Anyway, here lets have a list that we could just keep adding too.
COOL FOODS - recomended by stoners around the world . . .
McCain Toaster Strudle
Pita & Humous
Brisk Iced Tea
Cool Ranch Bits & Bites
(All of those items together are the Stoners Feast)
Cheesecake (Blueberry swirl) using the recipe on the back of the Phili cream cheese box!
Popsicle (ooh ooh baby yeah )
Frozen Burritos with Natchos
Coke!!!!! Always, gotta have the coke.
Real Fruit Juice, Mmm strawberry bannana
Only Giant Chocolate Chip cookies -- we should steal that recipe!
Only Cowgirl Breakfast
Any Presidents choice product.
Ice Cream Sandwhiches do I know you or what?
Left over chicken
Chips and Dip
Golden Grahams Smores
Lumpy Yogurt (Lisa)
Type: Craving/Feast (breakfast usually, but if you are stoned then...)
Stired yogurt of any flavour you want.
Cereal (Corn Flakes, Special K, Cherios, Ganola)
1. Simply combine and enjoy!
Notes: Some companies sell yogurt with a small pack of nuts or
ceral . . . this way is cheaper and you can use as much or as
little as possible. For interesting cereal choices, try the
bulk food store.
Savory Ice Cream (Nathan)
Plain potato chips (ruffled for preferance)
1. Crumble chips and sprinkle over ice cream.
NOtes: Yummy Yummy.
McD Hedgehog Sunday (Mike)
McDonald's Sunday (caramel for preference)
1. Use the fries for dipping in the sunday.
NOtes: Again the sweet silky texture of the sunday counterpoints the
salty crispness of the fries.
Brakwurst - cooked, or any other type of sausage.
Cheese (Go crazy with the type, but hard cheeses are appropriate)
1. Cut cheese into cubes, sausage into little pieces, and the apple
2. Enjoy! (perhaps that should be the last entry in every recipe...)
Notes: I would add a nice french stick to the above. As a
variation, you can make this a real medieval feast by tearing
pieces off the food with your hands real savage like.
Yum Dip (Maureen)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 package of french onion soup mix
2 cloves of garlic, minced OR garlic powder
1. Mince garlic and then purre with side of knife to get it ultra
2. Snip off some dried chives into small pieces.
3. Combine all the ingredients and stir thoroughly.
4. Cover and put in fridge for an hour to let it develop potency.
Note: Once again, go crazy with the ingredients, add dill, or bits
of pepper, and serve with chips or vegitable sticks or
Peanut Butter Rice Cakes and Honey Beer
Caramel Rice Cakes
Chuncky Peanut Butter
Honey Brown Beer
If you need instructions for this, you are way too stoned to also drink alcohol and had better just move along to the next recipe.
Notes: Honey Beer goes well with anypeanut buttery item. So is mead (see Mead recipe that we must find!
Thick Thick Milkshake (Circa Rosanne Show, 1991)
Ice Cream (with no chips, or flakes or crackles etc)
1. Get a tall glass and fill it with ice cream (like 3 scoops maybe).
2. Put in just enough milk to lubricate the ice cream and mash it
down and stir it round until it is loose.
3. Put in more ice cream and a little more milk and stri and stir.
4. Top it off with milk and stir and stir some more.
Notes: Drink, but without a straw ... unless you have a really thick
straw. Add some flavouring too if you like, I suggest a tsp
of peppermint, almond or vanilla extract or a good ounce of
your favorite liqueur. And you may ask, how is this
different from a regular milkshake? Well, you know that
think layer that floats to the top of your everyday
milkshake? This is 100% that layer.
OKay, the drinks section can be Libations, what do you think?
Okay, Feasts for Whole Meals, and Cravings for snacks.
As for prep there should be a sub designation for if you could do it stoned or not ... a smileyface perhaps?
ANd then Feasts, Cravings, and Libations -- plus a section for THC cooking, which will of course be a hook for anyone buying it.
SPICED GINGER TEA
6 cups water
6 whole cardamom pods
4 fresh or crystallized ginger slices
2 1-1/2 x 3-inch orange peel strips (orange part only)
6 whole cloves
2 cups low-fat milk
6 teaspoons tea leaves (preferably Darjeeling or Assam)
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1. Combine first 5 ingredients in heavy large saucepan. Cover and
simmer 10 minutes.
2. Add milk and tea, bring to boil and simmer 2 minutes.
3. Turn off heat and steep 4 to 6 minutes, according to desired
4. Mix in sugar. Strain tea.
Notes: (Can be prepared 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill. Rewarm before
serving.) A lovely change of pace from café au lait,
cappuccino, or hot chocolate, and lower in fat and calories,
Alana's Wittingly Condescending Spiced Tea
Red Rose tea, or as near as you poor Americans can get.
1. You should cut one knob, about the size of the last joint of your
pinky, from the ginger root and peel it. Then score it. Smelling
fresh ginger is part of the delight of making this.
2. Use two to three cardamom pods. Just break them open and throw
them all in the pot.
3. Put in a 2 to 3 inch (5 to 7 cm) stick of cinnamon, and 2 or 3
4. So I put in 4 bags of Red Rose. Three or four scoops of leaves.
This is orange pekoe, if you are unfamiliar with Canadian brands.
Pour boiling water over everything. If you are a purist, you
should warm the pot first, (without all of the stuff in it).
5. Let it steep a good, long time. It is best to cover the pot with a
pot warmer to keep it hot. Careful, it is addictive.
Notes: This is measured for our brown betty tea pot, the best
teapot in the world, and the only one worth buying. That is
about four large mugs of tea.

1 small Piece cinnamon stick
Pinch of saffron strands
2 tbs finely flaked almonds

Traditional Tea Service
1 teapot (ceramic or stainless steel and NOTHING ELSE)
3/4 teabags/ 4 tsp of loose tea
some boiling water
some milk (not cream) or lemon
some sugar or honey
For those of you who have only ever had tea in most retaurants, this is how you really make tea.
1. First boil your water.
2. Warm your pot -- this cleans it, opens the pores in the ceramic
and brings it up to temperature without cooling the actual water
for your tea.
3. Put in the tea bags or loose tea .. here is how you know how much:
One for me,
One for thee,
One for the pot,
And one for luck.
4. Pour in your boiling water -- not hot water ..BOILING!!!
5. Stick that baby in a cosy and let it steep for 3-5 minutes. The
longer you let it steep the stronger it will get, but after 5
minutes, it will start to get cool, and you want it hot (unless
you want ice tea, and for that read on).
6. If you want milk, put it in your cups first so it heats up and
mixes through as you pour the tea in, as opposed to being cold
and floating on top.
7. Pour the tea, (through a strainer if it is loose tea, if you want
to read tea leaves, you warm the cup, put the leaves in the
bottom, and pour water over them and let it steep in the cup.
The leaves will stay on the bottom).
8. Sweeten and drink. Add lemon if you want, but only if you havent
added milk, unless you are into curdles.
Notes: Traditional Tea Time is 4:00. The Pot Smoker's Tea Time is
4:20. A true senualist celebrates both. Have tea with
biscuits (cookies for you americans and other aliens) scones
or anything you like.
Queen of Hearts
1 oz AfterShock Cinnamon liqueur
1 1/4 oz Crown Royal
1. Pour a shot of AfterShock.
2. Pour the Crown Royal into a rocks glass over ice. Cover with
Notes: Drink 1/3 of the Aftershock, and let it cover your tongue.
Drink some of the other drink ... the tastes will mingle in
such a delightful way. When you loose that cinnamon tingle,
drink some more Aftershock and continue to enjoy.
Mock Turtle Shot
3/4 oz That Fruit Cream stuff its yummy.
1/4 oz Melon Liqueur
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1. Shake the ingredients together over ice.
2. Pour in shot glass.
3. Spinkle nutmeg and go go go.
Notes: This one is so far theoretical, but we must try it sometime.
