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.




You're at a bar and some horribly cheesy guy starts talking to you. Studded jeans, Tattoo-inspired club shirt. Total Cheese.

Who said CHEESY has to be a bad thing?

This following dish will totally change your whole outlook.

This breaded chicken isn't literally breaded.
(I need to lose all the carbohydrates I can find!


  • 1lb chicken cutlets (thinly sliced or pounded)
  • 1.5 cups of Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • dried basil
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil

In a shallow dish, mix the Parmesan with a dash of salt, pepper and basil. Press each piece of chicken into the cheese mix, creating a nice crust.

Heat your pan on medium and spray with some olive oil. Make sure the oil gets warm before you begin cooking your chicken.

Place each piece of chicken into your pan and cook, about 2-3 minutes each side, flipping after it creates a nice light brown crust.

Plate and enjoy!

Almost all the recipes on my site are pretty spectacular, if I may say so myself…

But there are foods you should avoid ESPECIALLY when going on a first date.  

Sushi: Look, I went on a first date once to an amazing sushi place, but there is really nothing sexy about shoving a large piece of Spicy Tuna into your mouth.  

Garlic and Onions: My two favorite things. Good thing I am married.

Beans: Good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you…

Dairy: Cheese gives you bad breath. And it’s not just the “Stinky” cheeses.

But please, don’t worry – the truth is, it shouldn't matter whether your breath smells like a garbage dump or a dozen rotten eggs, he should like YOU for YOU... right?



It's an OY VEY! if you are not buying pre-chopped cabbage

Sumi salads (aka Asian cabbage salads) are pretty common. Many recipes call for wontons or noodles, or even ramen. 

For my recipe, I've added deli-sliced chicken, and left out the carbs, for this refreshing take on the Sumi salad. 

If you don't like it, well, then, you can sue me!

  • 1 large head of cabage (or a bag pre-sliced)
  • 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 6-10 scallions/green onions. I used 8.
  • Handful of chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup of red cabbage, sliced (or buy pre-sliced)
  • 1/2 pound of deli chicken, unsalted, chopped
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 tablespoon of rice vinegar
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, salt, pepper and rice vinegar. 

In a large bowl, mix all other ingredients.  

Toss and coat. Serve and enjoy!

Easy enough?
