Community Lensmaking Challenge: Cooking Hacks 101

Posted: 21 Jul 2014 07:08 AM PDT

6417267631_c8711f719d_zHave you found an easier way to do anything in the kitchen?

Why not help other home cooks by sharing your best cooking hack or hacks on a new lens?  Although I’m not personally very fond of the term, you may have noticed as I did, articles featuring life hacks are popping up all over social media lately.

To complete this quest, we’re looking for your best tips and advice (hacks) for making meal prep and /or kitchen time easier, faster, cheaper or better tasting.

You can use our How To format (to use it start your lens HERE) or create a traditional lens by starting it using the tab found on your dashboard.  You don’t have to use the word hack if you don’t want to.

Lens Ideas might include:

  • The easiest way to peel a hard-boiled egg.
  • 5 Food Prep Hacks You’ll Love.
  • Cut your kitchen time in half by simply using a _______ instead.
  • Fresh Vegetable Prep 101.
  • Choosing the best beef.
  • 3 Easy Ways to Shuck Corn – Take your pick.
  • Why it’s easier to cook _____ from scratch.
  • Or any other helpful kitchen or cooking tip you’ve got.

In addition to the hack, please share a personal story about how you came to learn your kitchen trick and include properly cited photos as well as any products or ingredients needed to use it.  If you include any Amazon modules, remember to share a few words in each of the description areas.

When your lens is completed, share the link here in the comments section so the entire Squid community can take a look.  I’m pretty sure that everyone is looking for easier ways to prepare their meals.  I know I am.

At the end of the quest, one week from today, we’ll grab a handful of lenses to show off in a special post right here at SquidooHQ.
