Who couldn’t use a little extra cash? If you’re someone who loves to cook and you’re looking for a way to bring in a few extra bucks, you might want to consider trying to earn money cooking at home.
While this might seem like a pipedream, there are plenty of people who make extra cash by cooking at home in their kitchens. And there’s no reason why you can’t be one of them!
Teach a Cooking Class
A great way to make some extra cash while your at home is to teach a cooking class. You can do this through an online platform (but we’ll get to that in a second) or you can find a local organization that offers cooking classes and see if you can do it from them.
Sure if you’re out of the house you’re not technically making money at home, but you are doing it on your own accord which has to count for something. It’s a great way to earn money from home.
Make Your Own Online Cooking Course
If you want to take your cooking game to the next level, then creating your own online course can be a great way to earn money cooking at home. In this case, you actually do get to make money from your kitchen.
There are a TON of great platforms out there that make creating a course a breeze. And you can make a course about anything. Whether you want to go over the basics of cooking or you want something more in-depth like the “how to” of making pasta, there’s plenty of opportunity there.
Run a Cooking Blog
Most business online business owners start with simply a blog. And it’s one of my favorite ways to bring in a little extra cash and start building your online brand. It’s SUPER easy to do.
While running a blog is a ton of work, it’s relatively simple to start doing. If you’re looking to enter the world of home cooking businesses, then a blog (with an Instagram or Pinterest account) is a great place to start.
Become a Freelance Recipe Writer
There are a ton of great publications out there that are looking for people to write new recipes for them, and you could be one of them. You’ll need a portfolio of original recipes (they need to truly be your own) and then you can start pitching blogs and publications.
I highly recommend pairing writing recipes with having your own blog because writing for other people only pays so much money. In the long run, it’s likely that it will be more lucrative to write for yourself.
Start a Cooking Youtube Channel
In the same vein as writing a blog, you could also go with running a YouTube channel. Now, being on camera isn’t for everyone but if you’re more comfortable talking than writing, then a YouTube channel might be the best thing for you.
