National Teachers Day, May 4th

Looking to get on your teacher’s good side this school year? Well, you might want to stop polishing that apple because its only going to get mushy—why not opt for something a little more…impressive—like rich, delicious gourmet chocolate cookies from Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies! Surely you’re teacher will be thankful for the nice change of pace from those usual apples and trinkets.

From patient elementary teachers to specialized professors, hopefully you’ve had stellar teachers this year. National Teachers Week is celebrated the first full week in May and National Teachers Day is the Tuesday of that week (this year: Tuesday, May 4th). As it is nearing the end of the school year, now is a perfect time to show how thankful we are to our teachers for all the hard work they put into making the world a better place.

All of our cookies are available for cookie delivery and will arrive decadently fresh. Send them to your home and deliver them personally, or have them sent to the school address with special instructions to deliver it to your teacher for National Teacher’s Day. Either way, make sure they receive elegant sweetness for their special day!

St. Patrick’s Day Party Tips

St. Patrick's Day

Spring is rapidly approaching with another excuse to entertain: St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) and the “wearin’ of the green” is a fun day to celebrate for Irish and non-Irish alike!

Though the typical Irish meal for St. Patty’s Day was boiled bacon and potatoes, Irish immigrants in the U.S. would use cheap meat that was tenderized with brine (corned beef) and slow cooked with cabbage, which became the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal.

Serve the following to your guests with green embellishment and decorations:

Chocolate Mint Eclipse Cookies

Now, hire a bagpipe player and you’re set for a fabulously green party!

Fun Things To Do:

  • Learn a little about the history of St. Patrick’s Day here and do a few crafts with your kids!
  • Now if you’re really feeling like the luck of the Irish is on your side, go here to find an Irish Dancing School* near you and learn a jig to teach your party guests!

*Please post pictures if any of you decide to do this one!

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

Happy Mardi Gras!

Emma Masterpiece Theatre BBC

Attending a dull and disastrous party is a lot like chipping a tooth with teeth-whitening strips on. So, if you happen to find yourself at one of these (and there’s no way of salvaging it) head home early from the Mardi Gras party since you’re feeling so “sick”—we’ve got a few gourmet goodies to keep you occupied!

  1. Tune in (online) to BBC Masterpiece Classic Theater’s Emma—watch the trailer preview.

  2. Indulge in some gourmet sweetness.

Of course, if you’d rather not celebrate solo, no matter the turnout of the festivities, be sure to bring the party host/hostess an irresistible gourmet cookie gift basket — May the celebrations begin!

Happy Mardi Gras everyone!

5 Ways To Celebrate President’s Day!

American Flag

Presidents’ Day, nestled between Lincoln’s birthday (February 12th) and Washington’s birthday (February 22nd), this federal holiday is observed on the third Monday of February and falls on Monday, February 15th this year.

  1. Have kids? Go here and find some great kids activities, games, crafts, and historical facts! Plan a small President’s Day party for your children and their friends and serve gourmet cookies to munch on while the kiddies are making log cabins out of pretzels and white cotton-ball wigs.

  2. Visit your nearest Museum of History.

  3. Attend or host a patriotic event—no events going on in your area and can’t make it to Washington D.C.? Host a President’s Day party of your own! Serve foods that are inspired by U.S. Presidents’ favorite foods. All of our Presidents were of course different in their tastes: from gourmets to medical restricted diets, some loved classic French cuisine (Jefferson, Kennedy), while others liked “down home” simple food (Adams, Johnson), and some efficiently viewed food as fuel (Lincoln, Wilson). Whatever you decide to serve, incorporating the national colors red, white and blue will transform any meal into one that is patriotic!

  4. Make an effort to support our troops and support our veterans. Whether that means sending letters, or monetary donations to our active troops, to visiting your veteran neighbor down the street (bring treats and ask him/her to share some of their stories!), a little attention for all of sacrifice and service they’ve given certainly goes a long way.

  5. Brush up on history (U.S. or otherwise) by watching a few clips on the History Channel or stop by Barnes & Noble and pick up a book or documentary about something in history that intrigues you.

Mardi Gras Party Tips

Mardi Gras

Since not all of us can go to Mobile (where Mardi Gras started and the carnivals last a week!), we might as well try to recreate the spirit of ‘Fat Tuesday’ and the New Orleans parade on Bourbon Street in our respective parties wherever we may live. Here are a few tips to make for one exciting evening, February 16th!

Mardi Gras

Masked Ball Theme

  • Decorate with vibrant colors and carnival stripes. Try to find images, balloons, lights, garland, ribbons, feathers, glitter, beads, and decor that resemble or give the essence of the Bourbon Street characters such as Medusa, Hydra, the Sphinx and Unicorn.

  • Invite guests to dress up and wear brilliant colored and ornate costumes with masks. Mardi Gras official colors and symbolism: green (“faith”), gold (“power”) and purple (“justice”).

  • Serve a table of hors d’oeuvres with gumbo, cornbread, jambalaya, red beans and rice, dips and vegetables, and, for the dessert bar, Gourmet Cookies.

We wish you all a very exciting and safe Mardi Gras party!
