Stay Home and Cook Challenge

Tap into your creativity during the COVID-19 quarantine and submit to our Stay Home and Cook Challenge!

With many restaurants closed and the stay-at-home order in place, RecipeLion wants to encourage you to get creative in the kitchen! Using pantry staples, leftovers, and whatever else you have on-hand, create an award-winning entry for our Stay Home and Cook Challenge!

Create a new, original recipe using whatever ingredients you have at home already. No special trips to the grocery store, please! Dig into the back of your pantry or freezer and use up whatever you have lying around. It's amazing what tasty concoctions you can whip up using leftover ingredients. Tap into your creative side when it comes to substitutions; let's prove to our fellow readers that you don't always need to follow recipe instructions to a tee- you can get a little creative and swap out various ingredients using something you already have. 

We hope to brighten this time by offering a joyful way to spend your days inside. Happy cooking! We can't wait to see what you create.
