In recognition of Julia’s outstanding video work on her YouTube channel, Recipes for a Sweet Life, The TASTE AWARDS nominated Julia for four (yes, four!) awards in 2016, including Best Chef in a Series, Best Single Topic Series, Best Instructional Web Series, and Best Online Food Program. Though she only made it to the finalist stage this time, Julia persevered with her instructional video series. Fast forward to 2019 when The TASTE AWARDS ultimately awarded Julia with “Breakout Foodie of the Year” – ironically, nearly 25 years after she started in the food business!
