We have entered a new age of edibles. Even if you do not live in a fully legalised state or country with a fancy dispensary, there are enough recipes and resources out there to ensure the edibles you make and/or eat taste like food rather than weed. This is good because it’s more fun to eat things that taste good, but it’s bad because it’s much easier to eat too many.

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.
Mid-afternoon munchies are the worst. You need to eat something to get you through the day, but the choices on offer are usually high in sodium, sugar and/or saturated fats.
Thankfully, there are a handful of snacks on the market that provide a substantial energy boost without compromising your health. This infographic lists 15 of the best.
Every day after school, it’s the same scene in my house: My son asks for a snack, I offer up an idea (usually starting with what he chose yesterday or the day before), which he promptly turns down. He might come back to it a few minutes later, after I’ve exhausted all other possibilities, but he never says yes to the first suggestion. He holds out until he know what all his options are.
The saddest meal of the year is always the one you eat right after visiting family for the holidays. Mine is usually more of a free-range fridge scrounge than an actual meal, and I always have a lot of questions: Are those leftovers too old to eat, or am I just a coward? Who ate all my cheese? Why didn’t I stuff my suitcase with fruit cake?
Cheese plates are a mainstay of holiday party appetizers, but finding new ways to zhuzh up the usual suspects can be a challenge. Allow me to introduce you to your new best friend: baked cheese.
Only until relatively recently in human evolution have we eaten three meals plus snacks every day.
Plenty of iconic Aussie snacks didn't deserve to die but Australia has had a slightly sordid history when it comes to keeping our snacks free of racist and homophobic undertones.
Here are five Aussie snacks that you won't find in 2018 because they rightly deserved to die.
If you are snack-motivated, dips are more than just a party food — dips are a lifestyle. Dipping something salty and crunchy into something creamy is a sensory experience so delightful, I have been known to eat an entire dinner of chips and dip. Onion dip is a favourite, but it takes a bit of time to do it properly, so I like to have a few other "recipes" I can whip up to satisfy my dip craving.
Every party spread, no matter how fancy the shindig, should contain a dip or two. Dips are easy to make, fun to eat, and much loved by pretty much everyone. French onion dip is never a bad choice — you can learn to make an excellent one here — but there are other options. Below you will find three luscious, creamy, flavour-packed dips and spreads to make, take and serve.
I thought we’d all signed off on every use of bacon. I thought Reddit and Epicurious and Epic Meal Time had taught us that bacon goes with everything. But judging by the looks I get at the diner when I dip my bacon in butter, we have not. We apparently have not collectively agreed that bacon, like french fries or baby carrots, is a dipping food.
If you are a lover of the crunchy and the salty, you have probably, at one point or another, found yourself with various mostly-consumed bags and boxes of chips, crackers and other snack products. Rather than eat them individually, sad handful by sad handful, you should combine them all to make a snack mix.
Traveller, let me give you my most useful tip for visiting Japan: The "konbini" is life. It's a one-stop shop for literally anything a wide-eyed tourist such as yourself may need while you explore the brightly lit corridors of Tokyo, or get swallowed by the serene silence of temples and shrines in Kyoto.
