Welcome to Cooking in my heels, the ramblings and recipes of an ex-executive and serious food lover in her fabulous shoes. I’m Karin, a cook, baker, recipe developer, cooking and baking teacher, aspiring entrepreneur, blogger… and that well-shod ex-exec.
After years of a career in the NYC non profit and corporate world, a lay-off in late 2009, the subsequent crappy job market, and a mid-life realization that life was short and I wasn’t doing what I loved, I gathered up Pradas, pots, pans and a BIG bucket of chutzpah and this Gotham gal moved from NYC to small town Oregon to live, work, blog and hopefully grow a business from my love of all things food.
After three years, great friends, hungry Gorgers (it’s a PNW thing) and many pounds of butter, I decided to move to the Wasatch foothills, and a smaller but pretty awesome city next to a big Salty Lake. I now spend my weekdays protecting Southern Utah’s spectacular red rock wilderness, and the rest of my time exploring my new world, making new friends, connecting with family, and playing with food in the gorgeous mountain west. Not sure what this next chapter will bring, but I’m certain it will be awfully tasty.😉
Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life!
