The Just A Pinch Blue Ribbon

Blue Ribbon Fast Track
A Premium Membership Feature

Have you ever had your recipe tested in a Test Kitchen? Think your recipe is worthy of a Blue Ribbon? Just A Pinch has a new feature exclusively for Premium members that will send their recipe to the top of the Test Kitchen's cooking list — the Blue Ribbon Fast Track.

How Does it Work?

Each year, Premium members can submit one (1) recipe for the Test Kitchen to cook using their Blue Ribbon Fast Track. Janet and The Crew will test the recipe and provide the Test Kitchen's feedback and comments.

If the Test Kitchen deems your recipe ribbon-worthy, you will be mailed a real Blue Ribbon, your recipe will added to our Blue Ribbon recipe collection, and a press release will be sent to your local news outlets. Learn more about Blue Ribbons here.

To participate, you must be a Premium member, and your account must be in good standing with a profile picture. Submission of a recipe in no way automatically guarantees the recipe a Blue Ribbon.

If your recipe is not eligible for testing, you will have the opportunity to submit another recipe for consideration.

What Does it Cost?

Each Blue Ribbon Fast Track has a $50 expedition fee to cover Test Kitchen expenses and time.
