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.


It's Tuesday. That can only mean ONE THING.

Taco night!

The below dish is easy on the eyes, easy in the heels, and easy on the waistline.


  • 2 grilled chicken breasts OR store bought rotisserie chicken.
  • 1 jar of salsa you love (I prefer roasted garlic salsa)
  • a handful of chopped lettuce
  • a package of pre-made fresh guacamole (or make it yourself if you have the time: 2 avocados, cilantro, a squeeze of lime, a dash of olive oil)
  • a sprinkle of Oaxaca cheese (or use Parmesan like I did)
  • a can of black beans
  • a handful of frozen corn
  • blue corn soft flour tortillas
In the oven, warm your tacos on a tray at low heat.

Cook your chicken-- or, if store bought, just fork your chicken, shredding it. In a topped pan on medium low heat, add your chicken and the whole jar of salsa. Let it sit and stew anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Mix if you'd like.

Drain your can of black beans into a bowl and add the frozen corn. Heat it in the microwave until hot. I like to add a dash of salt and cayenne pepper to this mix for a little punch!

Remove your tortillas from the oven, and top as such: lettuce, bean and corn mix, stewed chicken, guacamole, sprinkle of cheese.

For Parve: Cook your kosher chicken, and leave out the cheese!

How to Plate: Open-faced on a crisp white square (as above) This can be served in a set of 3 as a dinner, or single servings as an appetizer!


Kate is BACK in BLACK (and hot pink!)



My computer died on me, my parents were in town, and I took a little "mini vacay"... and I am truly sorry that I haven't done a post in the past week and a half.

I hate not being able to share my recipes that are "so easy, you can even cook in your heels."

Now that my new computer has been ordered and my lovely fiance has allowed me to use his fancy computer, I am back in business!

You know what ELSE is back? Pomegranate seeds are back in season!

I'm here to celebrate with a light and delicious Summer salad perfect for lunch or dinner.

  • handful of fresh Pomegranate seeds (in salad section)
  • one romaine heart (per person)
  • one chicken breast (per person)
  • handful of Cashews
  • 3 slices of a Mandarin orange or similar sweet orange
  • store bought Balsamic vinaigrette
  • store bought Raspberry vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons of Cranberry juice
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt your chicken and spray a tin foil lined tray to cook the breast for about 15-20 minutes at 375.

In a salad bowl, add your rinsed and chopped lettuce, cashews, pomegranate seeds, and mandarin orange slices.

In a small bowl, mix equal parts of the two vinaigrettes, olive oil and cranberry juice with a fork.

Once the chicken is ready, chop and place of the bed of salad, and tossing with the "homemade" dressing.


Believe it or not, I am HEELED out!

I know, ME of all people!

How on Earth did this happen?

Well... I have been wedding shoe shopping for the past two weeks and have been everywhere from Saks, Neimans, Barneys, YSL, Fendi, Dior and Prada.
My feet have been in some GORGEOUS shoes, but none have been "perfect."

However, Jimmy Choo so far has been the closest thing. Their evening shoes are comfortable, simple and elegant, and most importantly, they are high enough without me thinking I am going to break my neck on my wedding day.
