I participated in an author panel at a local historical society last night. It was a wonderful chance to share our love of writing with a different audience. And since they were nice enough to buy our books and listen to us for two hours, we all brought some snacks to share.
This happens all the time. You go to a book festival and need to bring treats. You do a panel, or a reading or any sort of appearance, and want to entice readers on over. My original plan was to bring lemon bars, but spring has yet to make an appearance here in Maryland, so that felt wrong. Instead, I embraced the cold and rainy weather and made ginger chocolate chip bars. Took me less than five minutes to mix before popping in the oven. Couldn't be easier, or more delicious! Thanks so much to Real Simple magazine for the recipe.
