What is the difference between a Private, Public and Draft recipe?

  • Public: Anyone can find, Pinch, add to cookbooks and share the recipe in groups, discussions and comments. Only public recipes are eligible for Blue Ribbons. Any public recipe without a photo will not show in newest recipes but will still be searchable, shareable to groups and visible in your kitchen profile.
  • Private: Just A Pinch will not list this recipe publicly, but you can share it with others. Anyone with a link to the recipe can find, Pinch, add to cookbooks and share the recipe in groups, discussions, and comments. Think of it like an unlisted phone number. It's not listed in the directory, but anyone with the number can still call you. You can convert a private recipe to a public recipe if you desire.
  • Draft: Only you can see the recipe. These recipes cannot be shared or included in cookbooks. A new feature for Draft recipes is you can keep drafts of MULTIPLE recipes. Just hit save and work on ‘em later.
