Blogger Spotlight – Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks

*Once a month or so I’m going to be featuring a favorite blogger. As a blogger, I spend a lot of time reading other blogs as well as writing my own. The result of all this reading is the opportunity to meet  other bloggers, some of whom have become good friends. My hope is that by sharing my favorite bloggers that they will become your favorite bloggers too.*

Today, I’m featuring Heather King from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks.

1.  Who are you and what is your blog about?   My name is Heather Lynne and I’m a special education teacher.  My blog is all about making simple and delicious weeknight meals along with decadent and delicious desserts.  In between all that cooking I also review all genres of books!

2.  How did you get started blogging?   I’ve always loved to bake and read and in the past 10 years my love of cooking has grown.  After planning my wedding for a year and a half I suddenly found myself with a lot of time on my hands.  A friend suggested starting a food blog and Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks was born!

3.   What are your favorite 3 posts and why?  This one is so hard.  I have over 1000 posts and there are so many I love.  I’d have to say one of my favorites is my Turtle Cookie Cups because it was a spur of the moment recipe and it got published in Taste of Home Magazine!

Another favorite is my champagne cupcakes because I think that was the first time I really learned how to use my camera and had great photos.

My last favorite has to be my 11 Freezer Meals prepared in 1 day because it’s my all time most popular post!

4.  How long have you been blogging?  I’ve been blogging for a little over 3 years. 

5.  Tell us about your family?  I live with my husband, Frank, in Western Maryland.  We’ve been married for 3 years.  The rest of my family lives in Pittsburgh, PA where my dad is retired and my mom is a special education teacher just like me!  My little brother and his fiancé also live in Pittsburgh, PA.

6.  What was your favorite vacation?  Our honeymoon to Hawaii.  Nothing can compare to the perfect weather, gorgeous beaches, and relaxing atmosphere.

7.  What hobbies do you have?  I love to read, bake, craft, scrapbook, and do aerobics.

8.  Do you have a favorite movie, if so, what is it and why?  I do not.

9.  What does your partner/spouse think of you blogging? My husband is my biggest advocate!  He’s always telling people how proud he is of me and shares my link with everyone he knows. 

10. How do you stay organized with your blog?  It’s hard!  I have a calendar just for my blog where I write what I am posting each week as well as posts I need to write, photos I need to edit, and my social media sharing plan. 

11.  What are your social media links?






12.  What is your favorite “guilty pleasure?”  My guilty pleasures are getting pedicures every few months

13.  What is your favorite thing about blogging?  One of my favorite things about blogging is the community.  I’ve met some amazing people both online and in real life and have made some great friendships through our love of blogging. 



Thanks for Sharing, Heather!!
