brought to you by Janes Family Foods
Hey all, after a few weeks away, it's Melissa back with the news (thanks for filling in last week Mardi.). We have a few bits and pieces for you this week but we also have TONS of new members to introduce you all to. So exciting - we're only 20 away from magic #1000!
Simple Bites and Saveur
First up - a big congratulations to Aimée from Simple Bites for being awarded one of the Saveur "Best Food Blog" Awards! Simple Bites won in the Best Kids' Cooking Blog - something I know is near and dear to Aimée. You can read her thoughts on the process in her post A Sentimental Saveur Award To Share With You. Way to go Aimée!
Celebration Generation News
FBC member, Marie, from Celebration Generation, is excited to announce that she is releasing new, full colour editions of her two cookbooks, The Spirited Baker and Evil Cake Overlord. Both are available for pre-order now!
That's not all of Marie's exciting news - she is also a contestant on the new season of Gordon Ramsey's MasterChef! You can read all about that in Marie's latest post, What the Hell am I Doing, Drinking in LA?
Foodie Pages Members Only Contest
Over in the Members’ Only area we have a wonderful contest brought to you by FoodiePages. In celebration of the launch of their new TASTING BOX, FoodiePages.ca and FBC present the TASTING BOX Inspiration Contest. We are challenging food bloggers across Canada to create a dish or recipe that is “inspired” by any of the delicious foods included in the first TASTING BOX, and asking them to write about your inspired recipe on your blog. Check out all the details in the Members’ Only post here.
Ok... deep breath... time to dive in and meet half of the new members we had join in the last three weeks (we skipped a few weeks with the conference and some other commitments). There were so many of you that we decided to split the list in two and do the rest next week. So, if you've joined recently and don't see your name here don't fret - you'll be in next week's news!
