I’m keen on green onions. The lazy — and the wise — man’s onion, spring onions are versatile, dirt cheap and easy to deal with, and they should be a staple in everyone’s kitchen, beyond their typical use a garnish.

While the ACT's new cannabis laws don't kick into effect until January 2020, you will soon be able to legally get high on Australian soil, though with plenty of exceptions.

Eating while high is fun, but cooking while high is the opposite of that. Depending on exactly how high you tend to get, staying away from open flames, heat sources that you could forget to turn off, and sharp, slice-y objects is generally a good plan. (While guacamole may sound extremely delicious whilst stoned, a trip to the ER to treat avocado hand would be the stuff of literal nightmares.)

Marmite is the Fernet-Branca of the condiment world. Like the bitter amaro, the super salty yeast spread is extremely polarising, and people tend to either despise it on a visceral level or love it with their whole heart. But even if you aren’t one to spread Marmite on toast, you can use it to add oomph to creamy spreads and dips.

A good cheese plate is a harmonious arrangement of several components. The cheese is important, yes, but you also need fruit, nuts, a drizzle of something sweet, and a carby delivery system. Though the mixing, matching, and stacking gives me warm and fuzzy Lunchables feels, sometimes I just want to shove something in my mouth without worrying about “constructing” anything.

Good party food can be eaten without plates or flatware. This means it should be stab-able, scoop-able, or come pre-loaded onto an edible delivery system. You won’t be able to stab anything with an endive leaf, but it makes an excellent scoop, and a truly elegant delivery system.

For those who have never had it, Buffalo chicken dip is shredded chicken held together with an unholy slop of cream cheese, hot sauce, shredded cheese, and ranch dressing, then baked until hot and bubbly. This cauliflower variant is (slightly) healthier, vegetarian-friendly and just as tasty.

I’ve heard tell of a big sporting event this weekend in the U.S and, if you plan on gathering people to watch it at your home, you are going to need some snacks. Luckily, we have a lot of those around here.

If however, like most Aussies this weekend, you aren't hosting a Super Bowl party then maybe consider these snack options for your next get together instead.

I have always thought that black-eyed peas were bigger than New Year’s. In fact, until I moved out of Mississippi, I didn’t even know they were a New Year’s “thing.” (My family eats them pretty much all year round, usually as a simple side cooked with a little ham.)

With the holidays on the way we can turn our attention to other, more important matters, such holiday parties, and holiday party snacks. Hosting a good party is a matter of giving the people what they want, and the people — in my experience - want dip.

The hummus above may look like ordinary hummus. It's beige. It's creamy. It has a good bit of olive oil on top. But this hummus is special because I made it with refried chickpeas, giving it a nuttier, toastier, slightly more indulgent flavour profile. It is amazing.

I first had labneh at a Lebanese restaurant in Tampa, Florida, and I became instantly enthralled. It had the tang of yoghurt and the richness of cream cheese, and it caused me to put away pita in a way hummus never could. I then spent many years purchasing it in fancy grocery stores before I realised I could make my own.
