The baby and I have waited months to go and see the new feature film, “The Croods”, a prehistoric comedy adventure follows the world’s first family as they embark on the journey of a lifetime, which opened on Friday.
We love our occasional movie dates, in which Ariana spends the whole film yelling at the characters, telling them what to do…maybe I should be embarrassed, but it mostly just cracks me up!
Marcus and I have enjoyed this “popcorn” many a movie night. Even before we were parents. This is my favorite version, closely followed by my, “Cheezy” Popcorn, in which I just add nutritional yeast, lemon juice and garlic to the cashew mixture.
So whether you are having:
a cozy family movie night
…a day-long Rocky, Starwars, or Harry Potter Marathon
or a big-screen cinema experience,
with this recipe, and a loud-mouth baby, you have all of the tools to make it a success!
Enjoy the movie and your popcorn!
- ¼ cup raw cashews
- ½ cup water, divided
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets

- In a large bowl pour the cashew mixture over the cauliflower and toss to coat.
- Spread out on teflex sheets or parchment paper Dehydrate at 115 degrees F for 12-24 hours.
