Julie Dreyfoos, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Julie Dreyfoos has tested.

Julie Dreyfoos

As a young girl in Ohio, Julie was content to spend many a day baking cookies and pies and more with her godmother. This old-kitchen know-how came in handy years later when she ran a small catering company in South Florida and, more recently, while raising two boys in Seattle with her husband, Rob. She often entertains, pairing Washington wines with the latest trends in local Pacific Northwest cuisine, and she still has her very first cookbook, now part of her collection of more than 200 volumes. In life’s zigzag way, all those years of reading recipes and juggling pots and pans on the stovetop prepared her to become LC's Production Manager from 2010 to 2013.

No more standing idly by as the pork chops you tossed on the grill toughen into leathery dryness. Nope. Not with this clever trick that cooks a whole pork loin and then slices it into chops after it’s pulled off the heat.

Pity the pilgrims. They hadn’t yet conjured this cranberry cosmo, which is a cinch to make and ensures Thanksgiving is a lot more tolerable. Sure beats mead.
