Julie Anne Hession

Julie Anne Hession is a self-taught cook and baker who prides herself on creations that are unique, yet approachable, using only the best ingredients in her divine made-from-scratch dishes. She is also a successful bakery owner, food writer, and competitive cook, having won national cooking contests including the grand prize in Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown: Cakes.

Julie's blog, Peanut Butter and Julie, is a spectacular showcase of her culinary creativity, and Julie is honored to have her work featured in O, the Oprah Magazine, People, Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset, Family Circle, Hannaford Fresh, Desert Companion, Taste of Home, Country Woman, Relish, Every Day with Rachael Ray, and Food Network magazines.

When Julie gets a little time out of the kitchen or away from her writing desk, she loves running, hiking, yoga, and spending time with her husband and their two dogs. And, of course, she is always looking for new experiences to inspire fresh culinary ideas. Julie splits her time between Las Vegas and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
