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.


Today is the day.
The first day of Spring.

And here is a tip that will knock your socks off!

We all know that Orange Juice is good for your insides-- your heart, your mood, bone health, digestion, and even your eyesight.

BUT DID YOU KNOW the Vitamin C in the OJ stimulates your skin to produce collagen to fill in wrinkles?

Add OJ to some honey to create a deep cleaning and rejuvenating mask.
  • A tablespoon of Honey
  • A teaspoon of OJ
Mix well and apply to face (INCLUDING your eye area). Let it sit for about 15 minutes, and rinse with lukewarm water.



It seems that everyone these days is on a diet. There's the Cabbage Soup Diet, 24 Hour Diet of the Stars, South Beach Diet, the Zone—and of course, the popular Atkins diet.

Kvell and plotz over your rice-less sushi all you want, but lowering your carbohydrate intake DOES in fact prove to be the most effective method of losing weight.

Here is a low carb, whole grain alternative to eating a New York slice (but you still have to go to your Pilates class):


  • Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • 1 can / jar of Marinara sauce (NO chunks)
  • 1 bag of shredded Pizza Cheese (aka Mozzarella) and/ or fresh shredded Parmesan

Spray both sides of tortilla with a bit of cooking oil (aka PAM). Put in oven (on tin foil) for about 2 minutes on each side at 350. This makes for a crispy crust.

Take the tortilla out and spread with marinara and top with your cheese. Act like one of those pizza guys, but don’t make a mess on the floor. Put the mini pizza back in the oven and cook until cheese bubbles and the top browns. Take out and BE PATIENT—the pizza must cool for a few minutes before you take a knife to it.

How to Plate: Cut the mini pizza as you would a large one. The pieces are very cute. This works great as an appetizer!

Note for Goyisha: Top with any meat like grilled chicken to add protein in this yummy dish!
