Congratulations to Jolene Miller of Fredericksburg, OH - our annual Mrs. Blum’s Recipe Contest Winner!

  "Sweet Bar-B-Q Sauce"

Jolene's Sweet Bar-B-Q Sauce recipe is the perfect combination of smoky and sweet. This easy-to-make recipe is great for grilling or dipping. During the taste testing, our judges couldn't get enough and actually went back for seconds! We hope you will enjoy it as well!


Spending time together is what most families treasure. It can be as simple as just sitting on the porch enjoying each others company. This year, we are taking that idea and going one step further for our recipe contest - "Supper on the Porch." It can be an appetizer, entree, side dish, dessert, or even your favorite beverage - best enjoyed when sitting on the porch.
Our winner will receive a grand prize of $500.00!

Please remember, one recipe per reader – more than one, will disqualify all. We also ask when you send in your entry, make sure you include measurements with your ingredients as well as complete instructions on making that favorite recipe. Be sure and write clearly – if we can’t read it, we can’t test it. Originality counts – no recipes from a published cookbook or internet website, please.

The deadline for entries is midnight May 1, 2021.
The grand champion will be notified by July 1, 2021.

Send your recipe to: Mrs. Blum’s Recipe Contest, 3301 Healy Drive, Winston-Salem, North Carolina 27103 or email to
Thank you to everyone in advance who submits an entry!
