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 friends I love, 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!
