Chocolate-Strawberry Thumbprint Cookies

I've got good news! My one and only food allergy seems to have been chucked into the gutter like an empty purse. I've been allergic to fussy cookies for as long as I've been baking. Cookies with frosting give me hives. Sprinkles or lacy details make my throat constrict tighter than a skeeter's ass in a nose dive. Food dyes make me nauseous (and worried about stains to my tea towels). Please don't get me started on cookies with flowers or any kind of lettering. My doctor says I could go into anaphylactic shock if I even come in contact with such a cookie. Naturally all types of animal-shaped cookie cutters are banned from my house. I'd hate to know what a pink and white shortbread penguin with Red Hots for eyeballs might do to my ability to have children. Read More


About Greg

I started my blog on a whim. I was looking for a creative challenge, which may sound odd because I spent 20 years as an entertainment industry photographer. I’m not talking paparazzi, I don’t have the personality to hide in the bushes! I like fresh takes on the familiar. My recipes are often simple, modern and colorful, with roots in traditional styles. I'm the author of two cookbooks. I’ve been a speaker at IFBC, Food Buzz and Camp Blogaway. I’ve led cooking demonstrations in Panama and Costa Rica and developed recipes for major brands. I’ve traveled to Peru, Mexico, Norway and Alaska to promote culinary and/or vineyard travel tours. I was even featured in Food & Wine Magazine. I also co-host The Table Set on Home Fries podcast network.
