Potatoes are among one of the most popular categories of food: starch. According to the wise words of Samwise Gamgee, we can "boil ‘em, mash ‘em, and stick ‘em in a stew." As a starch, potatoes may not be the healthiest option to include in your diet, but they sure are tasty and versatile. They’ve even found their way into popular culture with games like Hot Potato and toys like Mr. Potato head. But what if the Hot Potato became a... Pot Potato?
Homemade treats add a pinch of unexpected sweetness into your life. With an enormous amount of chocolate, candy, and sugary goodies available at every convenience store, some may find it difficult to create a unique, healthy, and absolutely delectable snack on which to munch. In a world of Kit Kats, Snickers, and Sour Patch Kids, one homemade treat stands out among its competitors: Cannabis Granola. Or, should I say, Gramola.
When you neither want to smoke, vape, nor eat your pot, why not shoot it down in a jello shot? Jello shooters, or jello shots, are the number one pre-game drink for any party. Take a shot for extra courage, confidence, or even fun. They are sure to make any night one you don't want to forget, or possibly have trouble remembering. Although I'm not quite sure who created the jello shot, I'm glad they did! Candy and alcohol, what could be better?
Peanut butter and jelly may be one of the easiest––and most satisfying––sandwiches to make.

Matched perfectly with a glass of your favorite milk, the PB&J sandwich seemed to be the epitome of the perfect meal… until our favorite friend “Bud” came around.
For those of you disinterested in smoking or even vaporizing your marijuana, have no fear––alcohol conversion is here! Converting cannabis in alcohol is an essential process in creating any marijuana driven cocktail or shot. And no––your drink won’t turn out bright green (unless you want it to!).
I will not eat green eggs with a fox, or on a box, or… wait, it has marijuana in it? I’d eat green eggs anywhere, with anyone, dear Sam-I-Am. Cannabis: it's what's for breakfast.
Wakey wakey eggs and bakey! To go right alongside your Green Eggs and Taoist, why not include the most salivating food alive (bacon) with the most desirable ingredient of all (marijuana)? Bacon, aka God’s gift to meat-eating humans, is a luxury food and easy-to-make-staple at the same time. Often used in breakfast creations, this Wake ‘n Bakin recipe finds marijuana bacon as an appetizer.
Converting cannabis prior to incorporating it into edibles is the crucial step in any Baked: Cooking with Mary Jean recipe. As noted in the decarboxylation tutorial, conversion is a necessary part in the process of activating cannabinoids.
