Cookie Riot: The Family Behind the Cookie

Welcome to the official Cookie Riot blog! This is the place where you will be able to learn more
about our business and also about us as people.
We are a husband and wife team who are on a mission to bring fresh, warm cookies to Boise and surrounding areas. I am the wife part of that duo and you will be hearing from me a lot. You can call me Sierra. We have three kids under 3 so life gets pretty hectic sometimes. When I am not being a mom to my crazy littles… well lets be honest, I spend most of my time being a mom to my crazy littles. I try to read when I can and I have a lot of things I want to learn like cake decorating and speaking Italian.  I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management (emphasis in finance) and my role in the business reflects that. I do the accounting and keep track of inventory and do social media and basically handle most of the behind the scenes duties of running a business. I am very comfortable with the numbers part, but everything else is new territory for me and I look forward to everything I have to learn. And I am just going to put this out here from the beginning…. I don’t bake, so don’t mistake me for the face  behind the cookie. That would be my husband (Blaze).
This business is really my husband’s baby and I am just along for the ride. When he first heard about the idea of late night cookie delivery, his eyes lit up and he couldn’t get the idea out of his head. He talked to his Uncle about it for 4+ hours and then continued to talk my ear off about it for the next several days. And thus, Cookie Riot was born. He also graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management (emphasis in marketing) and he handles more of the operations of the business. I asked him what his hobbies were and he said outdoor things like snowboarding. He also likes to play video games and he randomly becomes obsessed with learning card tricks for a few weeks.
I am pretty terrible at talking about myself, unless it has to do with my kids so I guess I will tell you a little about them.R is my oldest and he turned 3 in March. He is the spitting image of his dad, but he is my mini when it comes to attitude (or so my mother says) Sassy. Opinionated. Too smart for his own good. He keeps me on my toes, but he is also hilarious. Right now he is obsessed with the movie Cars, his camouflage rain boots, and jumping off of every surface in sight.

K is my sweet middle child and he turns 2 next week. He is more snuggly compared to his brother, but you definitely don’t want to make him mad because he turns into the Hulk in 2 seconds flat. He loves to make silly faces and gives the best hugs. He adores both of his brothers and would probably follow R right off a cliff if he suggested it. They manage to be friends most of the time and I love it. He likes (besides everything his brother likes) his soft Costco blanket, driving in the “silver car”, and trains.

P is my smiley baby who is 10 months old (I will save you the trouble doing the math: They are all 14 months apart. Crazy, I know) He is learning how to walk and taking steps because he has a deep need to be able to keep up with his brothers. He is such a mamas boy and is so curious about everything! His likes include his brothers, waving his hands/opening and closing his fingers, and climbing into open cupboards or tv stands.

So thats us, the family behind Cookie Riot! Feel free to ask any questions you have about us or the business! We are excited to see where this takes us and look forward to sharing our cookies with you!
