I'm here today with a sweet treat. I know desserts are crowd pleasers, so you could see these cookies as a peace-offering – or maybe just an apology. The last time I presented something sweet the bees were buzzing and the birds were chirping. It was a time of renewal. What calendar watchers would call spring. Now its autumn and I'm left wondering where summer went. Why didn't a burger post happen? Or coleslaw? Shouldn't I have churned up ice cream in an inventive flavor?

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.
