Toss Up March

March is a toss-up month. In terms of weather, you never know if it’s going to be a balmy spring day or if there will be an unexpected Arctic breeze (now called a polar vortex) or even a sprinkling of snow. It’s on with a sweater under the coat one day and off with the hat, scarf and gloves the next. hatglovesscarvesI told you I would go to Tokyo in mid-January, but sometimes the best laid business plans have to be changed. I am going in mid-March instead, so my April blog will tell my tales. Toss up one month for another.

On February 2, I did a book signing for Fat Witch Bake Sale at the gift show in the Jacob Javits Convention Center, which is a sprawling glass structure in the mid-section of Manhattan. It is way-west and almost sits on the edge of the Hudson River. My publisher, Rodale Books, had a booth. We brought along 500 Fat Witch Babies to entice folks to buy the book for their stores. It was a lot more fun than anticipated. People were charming and yes, I got tired of hand-drawing the logo (should I be getting a stamp?), but figured it was a good thing to do.

Thanks for being interested and here is what’s there: Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan, We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo, Jonathan Spence’s The Search for Modern China and a couple of trashy mystery novels whose titles I’m too embarrassed to reveal.

Back to NYC, the month of March and the toss-up. It is the time of leprechauns as well as big things considered, as in, get ready to file your taxes.

Baking sounds like a good idea, so check out our March Recipe File. Brownies baked with a wee bit of whiskey are amazing. I cut them into small little portions.final2Going anywhere special? I want to hear about your travels! Tag us at #fatwitchtravel.
