Jackie Gorman, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Jackie Gorman has tested.

Jackie Gorman

Some people eat to live. Others live to eat. Jackie Gorman is definitely in the latter group. She’s always thinking about her next meal (isn’t everyone?!), and she’s easily transported to another time and place just by thinking about what she ate and where. She’s a self-proclaimed food addict who’s not at all interested in a 12-step program to break her of her addiction. She liked our seared sea scallops recipe so much the first time she made it, she made it again the next night. Her other favorites include the Black Coffee BBQ Rub and Barbecue Sauce recipes which she uses on ribs. Jackie has been a recipe tester for Leite’s Culinaria since 2010.

Tomato Crisps

Got some less-than-stellar winter grape tomatoes to use up? Or even a glut of summer ones? These easy tomato crisps are our new favorite snack.

A wooden spoon full of pasta noricina

Pasta Alla Norcina

Bowls of creamy pasta laden with homemade sausage and sautéed mushrooms that will have everyone applauding. (Get used to the attention.)

Three bowls of fennel potato soup, one with a soup spoon, beside a small bowl of salt.

Fennel and Potato Soup

A spectacular riff on the classic French potato and leek soup known as Vichyssoise, this is astoundingly good. So much so you may just find yourself raising the bowl to your lips.

Dorie Greenspan’s Rugelach

These butter and cream cheese pastries are filled with cinnamon-sugared nuts, a slick of jam, currants, and a handful of chopped chocolate.

Chili Mac and Cheese

Chili mac. It’s short for chili mac and cheese. And yes, it’s exactly what the name would make you think it is. You’re welcome.
