Born and raised in Alabama, Tanous now lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children, and their French bulldog.
Soon after meeting, Ferguson and Tanous became best friends and decided to create a food and lifestyle blog, Julie & Jesse's Recipes. Their new cookbook, Food Between Friends, available March 2021, gave them an opportunity to bring their blog to the masses, cooking up all of the delightful dishes they want to eat and focusing on the joys of food and friendship. Drawing inspiration from the regional foods of the Southwest and South they grew up with, they seamlessly merge west coast style with fun and funky recipes. Delicious recipes include Hatch Green Chile Mac and Cheese; Baked Eggs in Tomatoes and Grits; Carne Asada and Shishito Skewers; and so many more. This book will make you feel like you're cooking with a friend.
