Become A Consultant

Do You Bake Canada

Would you like to join my team? 

I'm not going to promise you zillion dollar bonuses within 2 months. I'm also not going to promise you sign up today, get rich tomorrow. Because it totally does not work that way. Any DS business requires some effort. I will promise you help and support and hilarious conversations with yours truly.

The dirty: Quota is 15.00/month going up to 25.00/month by the end of the year. Still less than the "no monthly quota but must sell 450 in a quarter to stay active" quotas out there.
Website fee: 30.00/year charged as 10.00 3 times a year (first 90 days free)
Multiple starter options including a "free" option that I don't actually advise because you cannot get catalogs/samples with it.

Now that we got all that out of the way, if you're still reading I want to say thanks! I can be a touch long winded.

What we do have is food, everyone eats. Everyone is busy which is why pre-packaged foods are so popular. Do you know what is in 1/2 that stuff though? Chemicals and other crap. Not so with DYB, we bring the ease of pre-packaged with the goodness of scratch. No additives, preservatives etc. Don't be fooled by the word "bake" as DYB is sooooo much more. Crockpot meals, soups, seasonings, etc.

Don't want to join my team but still interested in the product? That's ok too, the following is for you....
How much of your grocery budget goes towards your kid's lunch snacks? recess snacks? How much towards dog treats? Did you know we have YUMM clubs where you can mix & match items you like and have them shipped monthly or bi-monthly? We even have a YUMM club for dogs. Cancel anytime, switch it up anytime. We have the Just A Taste club which is primarily items that you cannot buy from the website/catalog (although there will be an exclusive YUMM Shoppe coming for JAT customers soon where you can buy items you fell in love with).

Veggie Pasta Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Every month I make lunch for the vendors and shoppers at the Calgary New Age Market, and the Home Business Market. Every lunch of course includes something from DYB. Today was a nice, summery, veggie loaded pasta salad.


8 OZ uncooked rotini or pasta of choice
1 Package grape tomatoes quartered
1 cup green pepper chopped
1 cup red pepper chopped
1/2 cup orange pepper chopped
1/2 cup yellow pepper chopped
2-3 carrots shredded or chopped
1/4 cup celery chopped
1/4 red onion chopped (finely)
1/2 zucchini chopped
1/2 cucumber chopped
1/2 can black olives
Parmesan to taste (optional)

Honestly I'm guesstimating on the amounts for the veggies, since I made enough to serve 30.... All the veggies of course are optional and personal preference :)

6 tbls olive oil
2 tbls red wine vinegar
2 tbls balsamic vinegar
2 tbls sugar
1 tsp DYB For The Love Of Garlic Seasoning
1 tsp DYB Chive n Onion Seasoning


Cook pasta el dente (I usually cook it just under this point as nothing is worse than a mushy pasta salad)

In a large bowl mix your veggies and pasta. In a smaller bowl mix the vinaigrette ingredients and stir well. Pour vinaigrette over pasta and veggies, mix well and refrigerate for an hour at least to let flavours blend. (Alternately, allow your veggies to marinate in the dressing and add the pasta just before serving)

Of course feel free to add grilled chicken, or leftover thinly sliced steak.

Fragile X

I was supposed to post this earlier but of course other stuff came up.... I myself have just started my journey into the world of Fragile X. We are waiting for the blood work to confirm (FYI in AB that blood work will take 3 months or so to come back). My 8 year old son most likely has FXS and as it sits we have no idea what that means for his future. FXS is the biggest cause of cognitive delays and it primarily affects boys (since they only have one X gene from mom). The following is a guest post....

We are so excited to announce that Cindi Rogers first book, Becoming Mrs. Rogers is now available on at the link below.  This book was a labor of love
for Cindi, as well as her husband, Chris.  The process has been a wonderful learning experience and going forward will continue to require more learning.

This book is a memoir of sorts about her life (and Chris') in dealing with
the birth and subsequent diagnosis of fragile X syndrome for their two boys. The timeline travels from birth to present day and covers lots of different issues like school, behavior, therapies and day-to-day life.  It will take you through some downs and eventually some ups, only to come out with moments of joy and hope.  It was an emotional journey for me while writing it, for Chris while reading it, and we hope for you, too. 

We also hope that you might consider reading it, and/or sharing it (forward this e-mail if you like) with others in your life that might benefit from such a story.

Buy here:


Becoming Mrs. Rogers is the true and heart-felt story of one couple’s journey into acceptance following a devastating genetic diagnosis for both of their sons. Their story, its highs and lows entwined with its wisdom and compassion, has been a beacon of hope for thousands of families struggling with fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders.

Fragile X is a common and inherited cause of learning difficulties, affecting a child's entire world, including social and behavioral problems as well as cognition and speech. Rogers not only tells her story, but also gives advice for new parents, sharing facts about…

* the physical and behavioral characteristics of Fragile X

* the effects of Fragile X on learning, functioning and daily activities

* medication and therapy

* how fragile X affects the family.

Cindi Rogers and her husband, Chris, share the perspectives and tools they embraced in order to help their boys be as happy and independent as they can possibly be. It is a story of challenges, tears, joy and hope.

**A portion of the proceeds of this book are donated to the Rogers Neighborhood FX Family Fund which in turn offers scholarships to the NFXF International bi-yearly FX Conferences.** 


Cindi Rogers
Cindi is the mother of two sons, ages 23 and 25, who are affected with fragile X syndrome and autism. Since receiving this diagnosis, Cindi has become a leader and symbol of hope within the fragile X community.  Her positive attitude, creativity and defining can-do attitude has inspired families and professionals worldwide. Cindi and her family have travelled to conferences around the world to present her innovative strategies, helping families not only to live with fragile X, but to also thrive. It has become her personal mission to share techniques to help families generate ideas that they can implement in their own world, while helping their children with fragile X syndrome to live happier, more independent lives. Today, Cindi serves on the board of directors for Developmental FX in Denver, a non-profit that helps families just like hers learn to thrive in the face of fragile X syndrome. She lives and works with her husband and two sons in Littleton, Colorado, and together they love travelling the U.S. in their RV named Rocket.
