One of my favorite herbs has got to be this African Blue Basil I'm using in this week's recipe. I am absolutely obsessed with these big beautiful plants. I clone them constantly hoping to have a half dozen of them around my house (and to give away about a half dozen more). 

If you've never made pesto before, you should totally start. It's so simple and easy and incredibly flavorful. Plus, it's one of those meal pieces that can totally be riffed off of. This recipe is just a very basic suggestion. Play around with the…

Cannabis tinctures are so versatile. You can use them to make candy and other sugar based edibles. You can take them sublingually (or under the tongue). You can reduce the alcohol to almost nothing to make a gel to fill capsules with. 

They're also a lot easier to make than I would have imagined. In this week's episode of Lunch With Lo, I'm discussing two different ways to make tinctures. One that requires almost no equipment (but a lot of time); and the other which I've kind of showcased previously in the Cannasugar

Do you like your iced tea sweet or unsweet? I kind of like them both but it really depends on the day which one I would grab first. 

This recipe is definitely sweet. And it is also delicious. I took my cannasugar recipe to make some peach simple syrup to make this delcious, seasonal iced tea. Perfect for the last few scorching hot days of summer over the labor day weekend. 

Cannasugar is the only infused ingredient in this recipe so you really ought to go back and watch that episode if you're unfamiliar with the…

This week I'm showing off a really cool hack I read about years ago that will allow you to infuse butter without using a strainer or cheesecloth. This is a great hack if you don't have all the tools and equipment to strain out your flower from your butter. This method will work with any fat that solidifies when cool (think coconut oil, animal fat, shortening, etc). 

I was really surprised at how well this hack worked. Since water and oil do not mix, as the butter and water cools, it separates. This I expected. What I…

I am coming to you with my tail between my legs because this week's episode is a big fail. I attempted to make infused peach lemonade pops with some deliciously ripe Colorado Peaches. And while I technically did get the peach lemonade part down, it was the infusion that went awry. 

My first mistake was decarbing my wax on parchment paper and not a silicone baking cup. 

My second mistake was waiting too long to get the warm wax into my recipe and not diluting it in some coconut oil or something like that. 

The third…
