Liverpool resident Jerri DiFabio is sharing her tomato gratin recipe with thousands of other hometown cooks at Just A Pinch Recipe Club, the new online community created for and by cooks in hometown America at justapinch.com.
DiFabio is one of several area residents participating in the club, billed as "America's Greatest Recipe Swap." Members can post family recipes and search, print, chat about and try recipes submitted by other members.
They can also save recipes to a personal online recipe box, create grocery lists, plan meals and print hundreds of grocery coupons. In addition, members can create or join groups based on existing relationships (families, church and civic groups, etc.), or affinities such as diabetic meals, crock pot cooking, budget meals, etc, and share recipes between members of the group.
"We continually add new features to the club based on the feedback of our members," said Janet Tharpe, host of the club. "It's because of people like Jerri DiFabio, who is proud to share her family's favorite recipes with other hometown cooks, that the club has become so popular and is growing so fast."
DiFabio's Tomato Gratin recipe, along with thousands of others, can be viewed, printed and shared at no charge through the online club.
"I came up with this recipe when I decided to become a vegetarian. I was having a hard time finding meals that were filling and this one is very filling. My husband and kids still eat meat so I put this as a side dish for them," DiFabio said.
Founded in 2010, Just A Pinch Recipe Club offers free and premium perks. For more information, visit justapinch.com or facebook.com/justapinch.
