Raw Cheese and Onion Cauliflower Popcorn

Little Vegan Bear shares an interesting recipe that I will just have to try! What do you think?

Little Vegan Bear

Listen up! I’ve got a new favourite raw snack thanks to Veganopolous, who gave me this great idea in her post last week.

I was already planning to get the dehydrator going on the weekend to make some more crackers, but I needed some ideas on what to fill the other trays with. Her post was very timely! As soon as I saw her picture, I knew I had to try this stuff. CAULIFLOWER POPCORN.

I decided to flavour it cheese and onion style, because it’s been forever since I’ve had that flavouring. I swear, this took me back to eating cheese and onion crinkle cut chips. They feel really junk foody, but minus the junk! Best thing is, they are so simple to prepare.

I’ll share the quantities I used below, but obviously these are very adjustable according to your taste.

Pin & Tack Hearts Animal Place

Pin & Tack loves Animal Place and let me count the ways . . .

1. Animal Place provides a permanent home to animals from farms (big & small), slaughterhouses, and research facilities.


2. Animal Place “strives to create meaningful change for farmed animals through advocacy and education.”

3. Animal Place promotes veganism through publications and cooking classes.


For February, Pin & Tack will be supporting Animal Place with $1 from every item sold at the shops.  However, I always encourage you to donate directly.

Your support will help this organization continue to provide the animals everything they need to have a healthy, happy life. And every animal deserves that!

Blessings & joy, yours truly . . . Corrinne Quinn

Charity Starts Here . . . Ways To Support Dogs For The Deaf

Did you know? Dogs For The Deaf was founded in 1977. Ever since, they have been dedicated to each dog and person for life, offering guidance and support to make sure they remain a successful team!

DFDfacility{Dog For The Deaf facility in Central Point, Oregon}

And there are only a few more days to shop at Pin & Tack to benefit Dogs For The Deaf! $1 from every listing sold at the shop will support this important charity.

Not in the market for boutique pins, tacks & other delights? Well, that is never a problem. I encourage you to donate directly and Dogs For The Deaf offers a variety of ways to do so.

DFDdoggradutes{A few of the dogs that have successfully completed the training.}

Field Of Memories: With a donation of $150 or more, you can honor a loved one with a memorial stone and daffodil.

Recurring Donation: Set aside funds each month to be automatically given to Dogs For The Deaf. Any amount is appreciated!

Special Occasion Donation: Send the gift of charity to someone special with a greeting card and monetary donation in their name.

Shop: Spread the word through gifts with DFD logo, such as cards, clothing, mugs, totes & more at their online ship.


{Map shows all of the locations where they have successfully placed dogs.}

It can cost up to $25,000 to rescue, professionally train, and place a DFD dog. They charge only $50 for the application process. To make sure you are serious and can afford keeping the dog, $500 is required to actually receive the dog, but it is fully refunded after 1 year of living with the dog. How incredible is that?
