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.

Three jars of Israeli pickles, one with cauliflower, one with cucumbers, and one with red onion.

Israeli Pickles

Quickles. It’s what we dubbed these Middle Eastern pickles that can be made in a mere 20 minutes (!) with no fussy canning process. (Quick. Pickles. Quickles. Get it?!)

Tuna and Tomato Spaghetti

Good and cheap. That pretty much sums up this pantry supper made with stuff we suspect you already have on hand.

Cooked pieces of chicken shawarma and wedges of red onion on a rimmed baking sheet.

Chicken Shawarma

Permeated with an enticing and sorta (but not intimidatingly) exotic blend of spices, these chicken thighs and tender roasted onions and couldn’t be easier.

Several slices of homemade corned beef in a sandwich on a wooden table.

Homemade Corned Beef

Homemade corned beef is crazy easy to make. And it’s not just for St. Patrick’s Day. Although that holiday simply isn’t the same without it.

Three golden-brown pan-roasted pork chops

Pan Roasted Pork Chops

Perfect. The best brine I’ve ever had. Oh. My. God. That’s just a few of the things we’re hearing about this simple weeknight supper solution.

A white bowl of Italian onion soup topped with cheese toast with a pot of soup and several bread slices in the background.

Italian Onion Soup | Licurdia

This 4-ingredient Italian onion soup is just as humble, frugal, and soothing as its more commonly known French kin.

A red and white plate topped with a filet mignon and wild mushrooms sauce.

Filet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Sauce

“A knock one’s socks off recipe.” “Super classy.” “Restaurant quality.” “I wouldn’t change a thing.” That’s what folks are saying about this steak smothered with ‘shrooms.
