Favorite Recipes from My Childhood: A Lensblography

A few months down the line as a lensmaster, I’m still having the time of my life creating lenses about diverse topics on Squidoo.

It’s been a little over three months since I joined the site. I now have around 58 lenses. I do try my best to come up with really good ones, though I know that I still have much to learn.

I’m featuring this lens ‘coz this is my second lens that earned me a purple star. Yey! 😀

Purple Star on Squidoo

What’s This Lens About?

On this lens I shared three homemade recipes, adobo, beefsteak, and pastillas de leche. If you like Filipino dishes, this is something to check out! It’s the first time that I’m sharing Mom’s “secret recipes.” Read more here.


Do you have fond memories of your mom’s cooking? Here are my favorite recipes from my childhood. Plus, I’m sharing a new dessert recipe that I learned to make recently.

This was the first lens I created on Squidoo that featured the recipe module. I can cook, but it’s not my main hobby or my most favorite thing to do. I wouldn’t even consider myself as a food enthusiast. Sure, I like to eat — my size shows it LOL! However, I haven’t shared a lot of recipes. There really is a first time for everything.

Some of my other recipe lenses:

The Quick and Easy Way to Make Pumpkin Pancakes

The Quick and Easy Way to Prepare Vegetable Chowder

The Quick and Easy Way to Prepare Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Apple and Prune Cream Cobbler Recipe

What I Learned Making This Lens

Well, I learned how the recipe module works on Squidoo. This lens was my first recipe sharing lens. As you can see from the above list, I’ve shared a few more recipes in some of the quests that followed Mom’s homemade recipes.

What I Didn’t Learn Making This Lens

Although this lens is one of my earlier lenses, having been created some time in August, it’s a bit sad to note that it hasn’t earned any royalties to date. 🙁 It does have content and it is original, but I guess I do need to learn to write more popular and reader-oriented lenses. That way, my lenses would be guaranteed of traffic all year round.

Next time around, I will share more about Squidoo earnings! 🙂
