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.


Every time I walk into the movie theater, there is that unmistakable smell that heightens my senses as I rush to the snack counter.


The truth is, popcorn can be far from butter-ball fattening... and enter into the world of fabulousness.

The following recipe is easy, flavorful, chic and above all else, gorgeous.

  • 1 cup Popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons of Butter OR Olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons of Olive oil(I prefer to splurge with a high end Italian blend-- it makes all the difference)
  • 2 handfuls of Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • Sprinkle of Basil (dried or fresh, finely chopped)
  • Sprinkle of Garlic powder
  • Salt (to taste)
In a pot on medium heat, add the 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil and the kernels. Put the top on and wait until the kernels start popping. They will go for about 3 minutes.

Shake the pot around often, as soon as the kernels start popping, and remove from the heat as soon as they slow down.

In a small bowl: Microwave to heat up your butter or oil for about 30 seconds.

Move the popped corn into a large serving bowl. Add the butter into the bowl and toss to coat. Sprinkle the basil, salt, garlic powder, and Parmesan.

Toss to coat, and serve hot!

How to Plate: Serve in a large bowl, or in retro popcorn holders like this!
