Shepherdstown Cook Wins Blue Ribbon

By Staff | Feb 6, 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Shepherdstown home cook Scott Anderson’s Shrimp Etouffee 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.

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

“A proper etouffee must be cooked for hours, however this recipe has been toned down to two hours. You can also play with the heat index by adding or subtracting hot sauce, but once you’ve added it be prepared to reap what you sowed.”

Anderson is one of 30 Shepherdstown residents sharing recipes with the social network, which in just three 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 calendar 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 allows 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 Scott Anderson, who is proud to share his 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.
