She specializes in creating colorful surface designs and hand drawn typography. At any given time she has a food themed design or an illustrated recipe in the works.

When not in her colorful and cozy studio Salli is out hiking one of the many awesome trails that are part of Cleveland’s Emerald Necklace (or she is indulging her 3 cats in the good life).

Grandma Helen's Date Nut Cookies by Salli S. Swindell

Hudson, OH, US

Read More...

My Grandma Helen made the best date nut cookies and stirring that dough was not easy! I still have her handwritten recipe, unfortunately she left out one or two critical steps so ours don't taste nearly as good. She sure loved her African violets, lily of the valley and pink roses and I sure loved the flour sifter and cookie cutter!

Fave memory. I never liked the whole pie but I loved the pie crust! My Grandma Helen always saved extra dough so she could make a pan of crust sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Yum.
