What is COOKING IN HEELS all about?

COOKING IN HEELS is a comic and practical cookbook blog for the modern Glamazon learning her way around the kitchen.



Okay, so, you just started seeing a new guy a few months ago. And you like him. A lot. When is he going to (finally) refer to you by the term "girlfriend?"

How are you going to take it to the next level?

With this dish, of course.

After all, the way to a man's heart IS through his stomach.

  • 2 pound of ground turkey or beef
  • 3 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • salt to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
  • 3 tablespoons of dried basil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped (or the pre-minced in a jar equivalent works just as well)
  • Jar of great tomato marinara sauce

First things first. You should ALWAYS have a jar of your favorite marinara sauce on hand. It's great to add to almost any meal (except dessert).

Heat the oven to 395. Line an oven tray with tin foil and spray with olive oil.

In a large bowl, mix the ground meat, dash of salt, chopped garlic, basil, garlic powder and pepper flakes well with your hands. You don't need breadcrumbs or egg for this dish to shine.

Once thoroughly mixed, create large balls, and place them evenly on your tray. My "go to" rule with balls-- the bigger, the better. Toss them in the oven for 25 minutes.

Warm up that marinara in your trusty microwave or on the stove top. I tend to rev up my marinara sauce with a dash of extra garlic and red pepper.

If you want to add some pasta, be my guest. They are great addition to some angel hair.

How to Plate: On a crisp platter, organize the meatballs in a row, spooning the sauce over them (like I did in the picture above).

Leftovers: These are FANTASTIC in a sub sandwich!
