Hey team! How’s everyone doing out there? 
 
You doing okay? Washing your hands for 20 seconds? Finished up all your Netflix series you’ve never watched?  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are like me you’re on a cooking binge and looking to change it up a bit. It’s April 20th, so I tried to make a video about making these amazing “best day ever” coffee cannabis oatmeal cookies but the truth is I ate too much batter and the video was unsuitable, even for our standards! It happens.

Here’s a list of the ingredients and directions if you want to try to make them yourself, trust me they could possibly be the "best (QUARANTINE) day ever" munchies.

INGREDIENTS:
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1½ cups all-purpose flour
2 sticks of Alpine Start
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter (I used
Sweet Grass Cannabis Butter,
but you can make your own) 
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • In a medium bowl mix together flour, coffee, baking powder and salt. 
  • In a large bowl beat butter until creamy than add sugars and eggs until fully mixed in. 
  • Stir in dry ingredients including oats and chocolate chips. 
  • Roll dough into roughly 2-tablespoon balls or desired cookie size and place on baking sheets. 
  • Bake cookies until golden brown about 20 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!

The nice people at Netflix just launched a new series today with Kelis (remember her? Her Milkshake brought all the boys to the yard...!) called Cooked with Cannabis.]

These chefs are a little more seasoned then I am.

Ever wonder why 4/20 is such a big deal? Where did this infamous number come from anyway?
Vice breaks it down. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

With most of the country still at home this 4/20 is suspected to be the biggest one yet! I mean how could it not be?
Technically every day this month is 4/20

Stay safe and wash your hands!

Amy here, Alpine Start's In-house Creative/Social Media Director/Sister/Mom
We've decided to pass the virtual baton and take turns as a team checking in with our community and I'm first up!

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

Hope everyone is staying sane—not gonna lie, I’m slowly losing it!

I don’t think my house has ever been this clean and not sure I’ve ever made this many home-cooked meals in a row. I’ll refrain from telling you all about Veronica, my sourdough starter, but just know that we’ve rekindled our relationship.

And dare I mention the hours of Netflix I’ve recently dropped into? I mean, Tiger King: check; Ozark: check; Better Call Saul: check. Need I go on?

But if you’re like me and now want to spend a little less time watching TV (or just need something to do with your hands while you watch TV), I have two fun ideas:

1. COLOR

 

Our in-house creative genius (shout out to Amy!) has made all of our packaging illustrations from Alvaro Ilizarbe available as PDFs here. They make for the perfect coloring book! Just download the book, grab your favorite colored pens (or just steal your kid’s crayons…) and get to work!

And the final step of art is to show your work! Take a picture of your masterpiece and use #AlpineStartColoring and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram to be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

2. COOK... err, blend?

If coloring isn’t your thing (it’s honestly not mine… I’m not that great at keeping it between the lines), then perhaps cooking is more your speed. Check out this (dare I say, fun) video of how to make Dalgona coffee, the velvety smooth whipped coffee that’s lighter than the clouds we dream on.  If you need to stock up on ingredients use the code Dalgona20 at checkout to receive 20% off your order.

We’re also making this a fun competition, so share your Dalgona adventures with #AlpineStartDalgona and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram and you’ll be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

The best posts from each entry will be announced at the end of April.

Good luck, enjoy, and don’t forget to wash your hands,

Matt
