What is a Blue Ribbon?

Blue Ribbons are our way of giving a little extra kudos to outstanding home cooks and their recipes.

How are Blue Ribbons Awarded?

There are several ways that we find Blue Ribbon recipes:

Kitchen Crew
Our very own Test Kitchen reviews and prepares a large sampling of promising recipes.
Family Tested & Approved
Members of Just A Pinch can nominate their favorite recipes after stamping them Family Tested & Approved. Nominated recipes are elevated to the Test Kitchen for review and testing.
