Cook wins blue ribbon for grandma’s ice cream dessert recipe

-ENT-Just-a-pinch-Diane-SchmidtComstock Park home cook Diane Schmidt’s Malted Milk Pie recipe has been awarded a blue ribbon at Just A Pinch Recipes, a recipe and coupon social network for home cooks at www.justapinch.com.

Schmidt’s Malted Milk Pie was named a blue ribbon winner by Just A Pinch Food Editor Janet Tharpe. To land the award, Schmidt served up a full-flavored dish that was both tasty and easy to prepare.

“This recipe came from an old friend of mine. My mom, Betty Lillie, is in charge of making this dessert in our family. My kids never ask me (I don’t know why, kids are weird like that!) to make it but they beg their grandma to make ‘that ice cream thing.’ So here is the recipe for ‘that ice cream thing.’”

Schmidt is one of 33 Comstock Park residents sharing recipes with the social network, which in just two years has become the largest database of user-posted recipes anywhere. On the site, users can post their own “family tested and approved” recipes and try recipes submitted by others, use a menu planner and grocery list, create custom cookbooks, print hundreds of grocery coupons, enter recipe contests and join discussion groups. They may also use Pinch It!, a robust site feature that allow s users to capture and share recipes from virtually anywhere online with a simple click and seamlessly integrate them into their digital recipe boxes. These features allow home cooks to build relationships virtually, as if they are sitting around one big kitchen table.

“We continually add new features to the club based on the feedback of our members,” says Just A Pinch Food Editor Janet Tharpe. “It’s because of people like Diane Schmidt, who is proud to share her family’s favorite recipes with other home cooks, that the club has become so popular and is growing so fast.”

Founded in 2010, Just A Pinch Recipes offers free memberships and premium perks. Join us in the kitchen at www.justapinch.com.
