Susan Sumpter-Loebig, Greencastle, was awarded a blue ribbon at Just a Pinch Recipes for her Vanilla Bean Dream Cheesecake. Just a Pinch is a recipe and coupon social network for home cooks.

Sumpter-Loebig's cheesecake was named a blue ribbon winner by editor Janet Tharpe. It was considered a full-flavored dish that was tasty and easy to prepare.

"This has been my only cheesecake recipe for over 25 years," Sumpter-Loebig reported to the website. "It's impossibly decadent and creamy, and does not crack or dry on top. This leaves all others in the dust."

She is one of 43 Greencastle residents sharing recipes with the social network, which was founded in 2010. The site has recipes, a menu planner, grocery list, custom cookbooks, coupons, contests and discussion groups.

Twenty percent of the 130,000 recipes posted to the website have received a blue ribbon  from Just a Pinch Recipes, based in Franklin, Tenn.
