Foodie Freebie Friday: King Arthur Flour

Yes... it's Tuesday and a slight shift in announcing this week's Foodie Freebie! It's been quite a hectic weekend and my husband declared yesterday as a day off from the internet/blogging so we could spend some quality time. I definitely enjoyed being away but there's a freebie to be given out to a lucky reader!

This week, we've been experiencing some cool temperature here in Chicago reminiscent to fall weather. It makes me want to bake all day and fill the house up with the aroma of fresh baked treats! Well this week, I'm featuring a favorite company of mine when I have baking needs - King Arthur Flour.

King Arthur Flour
Started in Boston in 1790 and now based in Norwich, Vermont, America’s oldest flour company has grown from a regional staple to a brand known nationwide not only for its high-quality flours but for our passion in sharing the joy of baking; from a small mail-order business with five employees in 1990 to the premier baking resource with nearly 200 employees today; from a family-owned operation for five generations to a 100 percent employee-owned business. King Arthur Flour - the Baker’s Catalogue offers more than 1,000 professional-grade baking tools and ingredients through its catalogue, online at kingarthurflour.com/shop, and at The Baker’s Store in Norwich, Vermont. - KAF site
Did you know King Arthur Flour is America’s oldest flour company, founded in 1790? To put it into context, George Washington had just been elected to his first term in office when it was founded!
