What Are the Best XMas Munchies?



What Are the Best XMas Munchies?

During the Holidays, there’s always a day in there that I reward myself with a nice day-long high. I don’t do that often. I’m a strict weekend & evening stoner lady, myself. 

After an assorted fruit platter (berries of course) for breakfast and serious hydration, I smoke up ... on Venus. Then without fail the munchies hit big time around apéro time. Cue the apérol spritz and to the kitchen we go!

Anyone who knows me knows how I love to cook. I don’t love to cook because I have to feed my family. I love to cook for the down time, for the experience of creating something new. I cook when I’m alone. But my favorite, by far, are dinner parties. And for that I rarely make a recipe that I am familiar with. I enjoy the challenge. For example making Gordon Ramsey’s Beef Wellington for 30 people at Christmas.

But here are some of my favorite go-to recipes to curb my munchies:

Foodess’ Butter Chicken

Bon Appétit’s Cacio e Pepe

Jamie Oliver’s Risotto Bianco

Bon Appétit’s Sea Dogs

And for dessert munchies:

Cake, Crumbs and Beach Sands’ Raspberry Cheesecake No-Churn Ice Cream

Bon Appétit’s Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

So whatever your craving, treat yourself to some time in the kitchen bonding over the smells of love stirring in a pot after a long day of self care!
