At one time or another, we’ve all enjoyed a bit of raw cookie dough. As adults, we know some ingredients shouldn’t be consumed until baked.
Leslie Cruz solves that salmonella threat by creating and offering safe-to-eat raw cookie dough through her newly opened no-bake sweet shop, DoughLish.
“There’s nothing else around here besides ice cream for a dessert shop,” Cruz said.
Preparing the dough herself, Cruz creates a variety that includes classics such as chocolate chip and sugar cookie. She also went creative with a Butterfingers dough and even s’mores-inspired dough.
“Snickerdoodle is my personal favorite,” she said. “I’ve made a lemon sugar cookie. It’s really good if you like lemon.”
Cruz and her husband, like so many people in the area, decided to move to Fort Walton Beach after having vacationed in the area. Opening DoughLish, she said, also means more than offering treats to people seeking an unusual dessert.
“I prefer to go to locally-owned places,” she said. “I don’t eat at the chains.”

THE MODERN MEDIUM MARKETING GROUP
After graduating from Choctawhatchee High School and earning both her bachelor’s and her master’s degrees from Florida State University, Jennica Blair headed to New York.
She learned quite a bit about marketing, but her hometown called her back to Florida.
With Blair’s return, she took her knowledge and opened her own marketing firm, The Modern Medium Marketing Group.
“In this day and age, there’s so much technological noise,” Blair said.
She and her staff work with clients to reduce that noise and to pinpoint the best marketing strategies and plans for specific needs and products.
“We do geo-sensing and geo-marketing to specific neighborhoods,” Blair said, noting that The Modern Medium Marketing Group provides quick feedback for the clients. “We offer real-time data analytics that go with your campaign, and we monitor it each day.”
The benefit is that clients can immediately shift their marketing dollars to the method that proves most successful.
“You can see where the best response is coming from,” Blair said.
As a primarily digital company with efforts focused online, The Modern Medium Marketing Group operates as a mobile business. Clients don’t have to find time to visit an office because the marketing group comes to the clients.
