HLB Staffer Emily from Relishments will be participating in National Novel Writing Month. Since she’ll be focused on writing fiction instead of blog posts, Emily is seeking guest posters for Relishments to be featured during the month of November.  Topics are flexible, but recipe, cooking technique or meal planning posts would be most fitting.  Re-posts of blog content you’d like to share with a different audience are totally acceptable.  Email relishments if you’re interested!
