Press Raves:

"Media of all stripes are rushing to cash in on mainstream pot curiosity, but few publications could hope to produce something as smart and easy to digest as “Marijuana for Everbody!” Despite an understandably fawning tone toward the plant, McDonough’s research is balanced and her writing practical, an admirable mix of head and heart in a sprawling field that can seem intimidating to newcomers."—the Cannabist

Baked Mac n' Cheese with Bacon

Welcome to Psychedelicatessen, a weekly column exploring the world of cannabis cuisine, including recipes from the great chefs and ganjapreneurs who fuel our appetite for adventure.

IMG 9140Growing up in Santa Cruz, Little Heather learned alternative values as taught by hippie parents, including the benefits of a natural, organic lifestyle. As a young woman, Heather has translated these values into her cooking, creating cannabis-infused edibles using high-quality ingredients. After winning a second place prize at a local cannabis contest, Heather decided, "Yes, I should do this!" and embarked on creating her own business, Little Heather's Edibles, teaming up with her friend Khalil at the newly formed Kind People's Collective. With such deep roots in the local community, Heather connected with local, organic cannabis farmers, and uses their finest products to infuse into her foods. "I'm an advocate for cold-water hash," Heather proclaims, "BHO is so new that we don't know how long-term use could affect us."

Many Santa Cruz locals have started a backlash against BHO, favoring cold-water hash instead for its safety, purity and incredible flavor. "There's a bitter taste to solvents," Heather says, "but cold-water hash is earthy and a lot of people really enjoy that flavor." Working with Kind People's and a few California delivery services, Little Heather focuses on providing artisanal quality baked goods and confections, including infused ice creams through her co-venture with Kind Creamery. Her caramel corn is a bestseller, along with ginger snaps and custom orders for high-end cakes. 

Heather's recipe for Baked Mac n' Cheese is deliciously decadent, due to the addition of bacon as well as crumbled cheesy crackers for the crisp topping. "Most people don't think about adding hash butter to savory dishes," Heather says, "but I love dairy with cannabis, it's so fatty and adds a lot of flavor." Portion this pasta into smaller ramekins for better control over dosage and serving size, and watch your guests devour this cheesy comfort food staple. The secret weapon is the cheese crackers, which Heather says "kick it up a notch!"
