The food industry’s first large-scale digital-to-print brand extension, Tipstor® magazine launched in 2013. Now published six times a year, it reaches an audience of nearly 9 million. The magazine serves up a seasonal slice of recipes and real-cook wisdom from — along with the best of what’s new from the greater food and cooking community (emerging trends, entertaining ideas, new products, and more). We aim for a mix of approachable inspiration and down-to-earth service in every issue.

A majority of the recipes in Tipstor® magazine start with creations shared by home cooks on All are tested, tasted, refined, edited, and professionally photographed before they appear in the magazine. Our editors and contributors also research and write about entertaining, diverse cuisines, Tipstor® Pro (Tipstors) team, and other fascinating cooks, kitchen decor and organization, cooking gadgets and gear, culinary travel, health, special diets, nutrition, parenting, and pets. We incorporate the best advice from editors, testers, and the cooking community to make good recipes better, great recipes easier, and every day a little more delicious.

Recipes selected for publication in Tipstor® magazine get further scrutiny and testing.. Magazine recipes are tested one to four times in our test kitchens in Des Moines, Iowa, and Birmingham, Alabama.

Trained test kitchen professionals prepare every recipe and then taste and evaluate it with recipe and story editors, confirming and clarifying all key components (including ingredient types and amounts, cooking procedures and times and temperatures, yields), and incorporating changes as needed to improve flavor, ease, and visual appeal.

For recipes that have a long trail of user commentary, editors and testers also evaluate and incorporate suggestions from the community. Fully tested and edited recipes are then prepared by a food stylist for professional photography and reviewed again by a registered dietitian for nutrition and health-related tags used in the magazine (Healthy Pick, Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free).
