We Want Your Food!

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 8.02.05 PMOK, we don’t actually want the food on your plate (although you can send us cookies) what we’re really looking for are your recipes. We want banana bread recipes and spaghetti recipes and peach smoothie recipes. Getting hungry yet?

Squidoo has many, many places for sharing food and we’d love for you to create a recipe lens. Use this link: to start your lens.

Just be sure to include quality original photos (or photos that you have permission to use) and of course no copying recipes off the web, that’s just cheating and no fun at all. The more YOU the better.

Once you publish a recipe lens we’ll see it (kind of like magic) and we’ll share it out on our social media sites (be sure to follow us too).

What’s Cooking on Squidoo On Facebook On Google + , On Tumblr, On Pinterest

GoodVeg, for Vegetarians On Facebook, On Goolge+, On Twitter, On Tumblr, On Pinterest

That’s a lot of sharing! So start your recipe lens so we can start sharing you.

Finally, if your lens is really good (and original) we’ll promote it to our Best of Food on Squidoo.

PS – The recipe on the intro photo is Stuffed Cabbage. YUM!

    Does it have to be a recipe lens? I’m in the process of making a lens about one of my favourite dishes, but it’s going to be using the “how to” format, as it’s not a recipe, excactly.

    • bdkz

      That’s fine!

  • RenaissanceWoman2010

    If we have a favorite recipe in a cookbook at home, or one we first found on the Internet, we are allowed to share our experience with that recipe (along with our custom photos and personal approach)?

    I published one this morning that might fit here. Would that work, or should I do a new one just for this lens? It won’t matter if not as I have another recipe lens about to be completed.

    • bdkz

      I’d do a new one : )

      • Arachnea

        Okay, that’s next on my agenda. :D Gotta get the laundry in first.

  • Tracy1973

    Good morning all! I just have one question, when does this quest expire? Thanks!!

    • bdkz

      Sorry, May 17th.

      • Tracy1973

        Thanks Bonnie!

  • duende333

    Tendré en cuenta esta pagina para poner las recetas.Algunas de mi tierra aquí las pondre.

  • Arachnea

    Well, skipped doing laundry. Getting another Squidoo lens done was more pressing. Hee, hee.

  • Andromachi

    here is my new recipe. i hope you will love it.

    In my eagerness to start writing this lens, I forgot to use the recipe format. I used the recipe module in the workshop instead. Can I still submit it to this challenge, or do I have to start again?

  • aswaha yah

    i love this squidoo.

  • nuxa76

    check out my easy recipe………… too easy actually :)

  • EditorDave

    Hmm. I didn’t see this quest until I had completed a lens on a different food angle (weird experiences) … but since I just published it (“chicken-feet”) …. I’ll submit it for this while I’m at it. :-)

  • WriterJanis

    Do we have to use the recipe format lens or is a regular lens alright?

    • bdkz

      Either is fine : )

      • Kathryn Grace

        Whew! Glad I read all the way to the bottom. Thanks Bonnie!

  • Kathryn Grace

    The only problem I have with this is that we can only use the new recipe format and it doesn’t actually allow us to share our photos, as required by the quest, unless we remove the Amazon module and replace it with a photo module. I totally agree that recipes need photos. The best foodie blogs usually have three or four photos of the recipe-in-making. I do wish Squidoo would give us the option to add some nice photographs to the new format recipe lens.
