Good Monday everyone! Short and sweet this week but we have a couple of fun opportunities for our members.  Have a great week everyone!

Special FBC Member Offer!

You may know it as Assistent, DLX or Magic Mill, and although the name has changed many times, the product and quality workmanship is the same. The Ankarsrum Assistent mixer has been around for over 70 yrs. but is just starting to make an impact in Canada.  It's loved for its size, strength, style, but most of all its quality and durability.  The company still receives requests from customers asking to purchase attachments for mixers dating back to the 50’s and 60’s! They  recently received a photo of 3 generations of women all with mixers from different generations and all still being used. This attests to the quality and design genius of these fantastic mixers that are still being handmade in Sweden just as they were in the 1940’s.


As the Canadian distributor, Jalyn's Market would like to introduce the Assistent to FBC Members at a huge savings. The MSRP in Canada is $769 but between now and April 15, 2013, we are offering it at a Members Only price of $499 (colours $509) plus $22 for shipping and applicable taxes. Limit 1 per member and available only through the Canadian Distribution center by contacting them at or by calling 306-231-7784. Offer ends April 15, 2013 and there are limited quantities in some colours.

An Opportunity to Share through LunchFor1 Events Inc.

Anna from LunchFor1 has had a dream for many years, nine to be exact. It's been to host an annual Chocoholics' Buffet in Winnipeg as a fundraiser for United Way. This dream will become a reality on April 20, 2013. They will be featuring 30+ dessert creations by 30+ of the city's chocolate artists, pastry chefs and restauranteurs. The only catch for participation is that each dessert much be prepared in a commercial kitchen. As a food blogger and home-cook, she also wanted to be able to include and feature the talents of the blogosphere. So she's reaching out to her fellow FBC bloggers to ask for contributions to her blog as part of Our Recipe Share Program:

We have posted one such recipe example (, but I'd love to see many more daily posts of a similar nature. If you have a chocolate dessert recipe that your family, friends or readers rave about, I would love to share it on our blog and link it back to your website, so if you are interested in participating, please email me Anna at Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
