Are you a ninja in the kitchen? Can you take a meal from bor-ing to brilliant! by swapping an ingredient or two? Maybe you’re the queen of one-bowl meals, prepping and cooking dinner with lightning fast precision. Or, perhaps you’ve found the most versatile way to use ordinary cooking appliances (waffle sandwiches, anyone?).
Kraft Canada knows that consumers have never been more committed to eating better, yet busy lifestyles force many to make compromises for the sake of convenience. Enter food hacking — a growing movement aimed at helping moms cook tasty meals, using unexpected twists and elements of inspiration.
Food Hacking is serious business. It’s not just a fancy title for a foodie who can Instagram a picture of their meal. It’s an emerging food trend and social conversation. And it’s something Kraft Canada is helping to amplify, showing consumers that when it comes to meal preparation, it can be as easy as “Get these. Do this. Done.”
To bring Food Hacking to a new level, Kraft Canada is launching a national talent search for our nation’s #IamFoodHacks ULTIMATE Food Hacker. This is the real deal! A real PAYING opportunity with real credibility. The selected winning candidate will be Kraft Canada’s official Food Hacker, develop new Food Hacking recipes and drive food hacking content through Kraft social channels. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes with a one year contract including a total of $25,000 in compensation and a generous monthly food allowance designed to inspire creative food hacking solutions.
Need some inspiration? Check out this One-Pot Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta. Everything goes in at once! The water, the seasonings and the pasta. Bring to a boil, then 12 minutes later you have a pot of perfectly cooked pasta!
220 g spaghetti, uncooked – 3 cups water – 1 cup halves cherry tomatoes – 1 onion, thinly sliced – ¼ cup Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing – ½ cup fresh basil, divided – ¼ cup Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese
Bring spaghetti, water, tomatoes, onions, dressing and ¼ basil to a boil in large skillet. Cook on medium heat 12 min. or until spaghetti is tender and most of the water is cooked off, stirring and turning spaghetti frequently with tongs. Add cheese; mix lightly. Top with remaining basil. And just like that: Get these. Do this. Done.
So, you think you have what it takes? HURRY! It’s your last chance to enter the Kraft Canada #IamFoodHacks contest. For official competition guidelines and complete program details, visit: http://offerpop.com/foodhacks

Aw, thank you Heidi! But I don’t know if I’d be able to take the pressure of a “hack” off!
I love to experiment, but don’t think this would be for me…

I’m not a food hacker but I must say I’m all for convenience and ideas in the kitchen, I couldn’t imagine entering this.. I can barely handle the pressure for people 2 feet shorter then me screaming how hungry they are.. cause the last ate 3 hours ago.
Hahaha same here!
I can’t wait to go through these recipes! This is a great challenge!
Yep, one of my fave contests!
Wow this sounds so simple and easy….hurray for less dishes and pots to wash!!! Not a food hacker, but looking forward to seeing all the recipes people submit.
