This is a busy, busy year for FBC Members on the publishing front and we couldn't be more excited! You've already seen Aimee Wimbush-Bourque's new book, Brown Eggs and Jam Jars. Tara O'Brady's new book, Seven Spoons: My Favourite Recipes for Any Day and Every Day will be coming out in April, as will Sweetapolita Bake Book by Rosie Aylea.
And this month, we're really excited to welcome Well Fed, Flat Broke: Recipes for Modest Budgets and Messy Kitchens by Vancouver FBC Member, Emily Wight.
If you haven't met Emily yet, be sure to check out our feature on her this week. Not only is she a mean cook in the kitchen but she's a smart and witty writer. The recipe headnotes and chapter intros are some of the most entertaining we've read.
Living in one of the most expensive cities (if not the most) in North America with some of the smallest kitchens, cooking from scratch might seem impossible. Especially when the month lasts longer than your paycheque. And, you have a picky toddler. And a Type 1 Diabetic husband. But Emily shows you it can be done, it can taste fabulous and you won't have to be in the kitchen for hours every night. You might have a few dollars left at the end of the end of the month
All you have to do is enter through the Rafflecopter widget below (Canadian residents only please!) before end of day April 3, 2015. That's it!
Big thanks to Emily's publisher, Arsenal Pulp Press, for supplying us with a copy to give away.
