I have basically waited wayyy too long for The Cooking Channel’s blog to update its results on the “50 States, 50 Dishes” post. You can read it here.

My plan was to gather the results and then veganize each one once a week. What a neat idea for ongoing blog posts, right?

Well, The Cooking Channel has been taking too long and I am letting my blog posts lag, as usual. (What, I am a boring person!)

  8. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or
    vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the
    way!
