Heavenly Spotlight Series: Emilee

Emilee: Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

Emilee: Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

New Jersey native, Emilee, is another one of our 12 Cookie Personality Giveaway winners and was certainly a fun (or “tasty” as she refers to it) cookie personality to get to know! It seems like she’s got it made: an adorable son to tote around, a new home, and gourmet cookies to make life even more heavenly! Find out more about her below in the Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality Profile and Heavenly Spotlight Questionnaire.

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Personality

TOFFEE CHOCOLATE CHIP: You are passionate. You have a love for the rich, buttery, chocolaty, flavorful things in life. Simplicity is great, but high-quality is what you demand. You demand only the best quality in fabrics for your clothing, towels and sheets. You have a small group of close friends that share your same tastes and you love to gush about the latest in “important” news. You are fun-loving and passionate about the things you do. If you see a need in our community or otherwise, you become involved in helping to make a difference. You have high expectations for yourself and those around it and it shows.

Heavenly Spotlight Questionnaire:

1.     What makes you a toffee chocolate chip cookie and why?
I can’t remember what the description was, but when I took the survey it was the title I was given. After eating them, I was happy to say that my personality type was so tasty!

2.     What cookies did you order, regardless of your Cookie Personality Type?
I ordered an assortment [of our gourmet cookies].

3.     Who ate your winning box of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?
My sister was here visiting and helping us get moved in so we shared with her.

4.     How long did wait before you ate your Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies? (Pick one)

A.  Not long at all! You opened them as right as postman handed it to you at your doorstep!
B.  You were oh-so-patient and put them straight in the freezer to wait for your family to come home.
C.  You arranged your cookies’ unveiling at a party to share with friends.

5.     List a few of your favorite hobbies and things that make you happy?
I love spending time with my husband and toddler (and anticipating the arrival of another in 5 short weeks!), running, fashion and design, music.

6.     How do you spend your “me-time?”
Does that exist as a mama? :) When I have a bit of time I love to go for long runs, crochet, and soak in a bath.

7.     What excites and inspires you?
My family (especially my little boy), music, beautiful decorating/art/architecture.

8.     Describe a perfect day.
A warm, sunny day with all my family around and full of fun activities. And maybe a good nap.

9.     To whom and for what occasion would you deem perfect to send Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?
Any and all occasions. We just sold our house and we relocated before it sold and our neighbor helped care for our yard so as a thank you we sent him a box. I intend to send them for holidays and fun surprises. They are to die for!

Thanks Emilee! It was super fun to have a peak into your world today! And yes, Emilee is completely right—”me-time” hardly exists for all of the hard-working, sleep-deprived mothers out there, but if it was ever to magically appear, it sounds like she has some wonderful ideas of things to do to relax in mind…in the off chance that it ever happened! We hope your sweet neighbor enjoyed our cookies as well.

Heavenly Spotlight Series: Andi

Cookie Personality Winner: Andi

Cookie Personality Winner: Andi

Meet Andi from St. Louis, MO. As a truly passionate Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie, she loves politics (perhaps running for office someday, so keep an eye out for her on your ballot!), being involved in her community, traveling, and spending time with her family (who couldn’t with such a cute brood?). Andi was also one of our Sweet Giveaway winners and received a sensationally gourmet box of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies!

We had a wonderful time getting to know (virtually, of course) this Midwestern sweetie and hope you enjoy getting to know her and her passions, hopes and dreams as we did. Below are Andi’s responses to our little questionnaire:

Heavenly Spotlight Questionnaire:

1.     What makes you a toffee chocolate chip cookie and why?

The description of the toffee chocolate chip cookie mentioned passion a lot.  I am passionate about life and I believe in trying to experience the good and fun things in life as much as possible.  I love going on fun and new trips with my family and trying new things because I love the excitement of the unfamiliar.  I also am passionate about getting involved in politics and someday when my children are older, I plan on running for office so that I can have a chance to better my community.  All in all, I believe I am a toffee chocolate chip cookie because my life is full of passion.  Whether it be passion for my kids, my life, my family, or my dreams I have a lot of passion and that is what being a toffee chocolate chip cookie is all about.

2.     What cookies did you order, regardless of your Cookie Personality Type?

I ordered the assorted cookie box because I wanted to experience as many types of cookie goodness as possible.

3.     Who ate your winning box of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?

I ate the bulk of them, my mom ate several, my husband had a few, and my 4 year old ate the rest.

4.     How long did wait before you ate your Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies? (Pick one)

A.  Not long at all! You opened them as right as postman handed it to you at your doorstep!

B.  You were oh-so-patient and put them straight in the freezer to wait for your family to come home.

C.  You arranged your cookies’ unveiling at a party to share with friends.

I am ashamed to admit that I opened the cookies on the way from the mailbox to my apartment door.  I actually had mouth surgery scheduled for that day and the cookies arrived an hour beforehand.  As I knew that I wouldn’t be able to eat solids for a week afterwards, I shoveled cookies into my mouth to get me through surgery.

5.     List a few of your favorite hobbies and things that make you happy?

Being a mother of two beautiful daughters makes me so happy I can’t even explain.  I love being with my girls and finding new and exciting things to do in St. Louis.

As for hobbies, I love getting involved in politics, reading, wakeboarding, and wake surfing.

6.     How do you spend your “me-time?”

As a stay at home mom, I do not get much “me-time”, but when I do, I like to go shopping with my friends, watch my favorite TV shows (i.e.: Greys Anatomy), and take long bubble baths while reading a good book.

7.     What excites and inspires you?

I am very passionate about politics and the different ideas and plans in motion to better our society.  As a political science major, I realize the importance in being an informed citizen and so I try to get involved and be informed as much as possible.

8.     Describe a perfect day.

A perfect day for me would involve a long morning of sleeping in for the whole household!  I am not a morning person so sleep would be very necessary.  In the afternoon, a perfect day would include some family time with my husband and daughters, doing something new, fun, and interesting and make us all laugh a lot.  Later, spending the evening with friends and family just hanging out and letting the kids play would be perfect as well.  Then renting a good movie and eating something extremely chocolaty (i.e. Heidi’s cookies) and falling asleep really late would top off the perfect night.

9.     To whom and for what occasion would you deem perfect to send Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?

My sister is having twins in May, and I think she would love cookies to ease her transition to becoming a new mom.  With all of those late night feedings, cookies would also help her stay awake J

Thanks Andi! Kudos to you for being involved in your community’s local politics and for striving to be an informed citizen. And we are certainly always happy to help you whenever you’re in need of some pre-surgery gourmet cookie goodness to mask the pain! As for your sister and her new baby, we have a special collection of cookies just for such an occasion—check out our new baby gift collection. A delightful box of these are sure to help any new mother feel especially sweet—particularly in those wee hours of the morning!

Heavenly Spotlight Series: Cathie

We are pleased to feature the first spotlight of our series! Meet Cathie of Salt Lake City, UT—it was so fun to get to know her through our little questionnaire!

The Happy Couple! Congratulations Cathie + Fiancé!

The Happy Couple! Congratulations Cathie + Fiancé!

I’m a chocolate raspberry eclipse.  My idea of a fun Friday night is staying home and reading a good book, or watching an interesting foreign film.

Toffee chocolate chip.  I’m a sucker for toffee!

3.   Who ate your winning box of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies?

Me!  There’s still a few in the freezer, but don’t tell anyone.  They’re too good to share!

4.   How long did wait before you ate your Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies? (Pick one)

A, for sure!  I ripped into them as soon as I got home and had one…and then another.

I think they would make a great congratulations or thank you gift.  Or even a “I’m sorry you got dumped, but you’re better off without them!

Talk About a Sweet Thanksgiving!

Autumn Duo

Autumn Duo

A golden succulent turkey, luscious potatoes prepared just the way you like them with loads of silky butter, pies for miles (but somehow they don’t last very long), and of course, that marvelous stuffing…what a day! A day to give thanks for all the wealth of abundance that we enjoy, whatever that abundance may be: love, laughter, happiness, time with family, food, energy and health, monetary means, or perhaps opportunities of progression. We all have abundance in some way or another. Thanksgiving Day is a perfect day to remember just how much we really do have.

Delight friends, family, and associates with an elegantly packaged box brimming with deliciousness and let them just know how much you appreciate them! Can’t make it to Thanksgiving at your family’s home this year? Send them a sweet “Wish I were there!” box of gourmet cookies to brighten their holiday while you’re away—not that cookies could ever replace you, but perhaps it can help to ‘smooth things over’ with the family!

A beautiful way to display your desserts is by presenting one of the Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies signature heirloom trays that serve from 25 to 50 people, starting at $35. Each have an assortment of delicious cookie flavors including: Toffee Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Eclipse, and others depending on the size of  your chosen platter.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving festivities and celebrations with a touch of sweetness!
