Some of you may have noticed a flood of my recent cooking endeavors on Instagram or in the community server. I usually don't cook at home but as of this year, I've realized that I LOVE cooking and I'm beginning to try more and more complicated dishes. Take the Buttermilk Cream Chicken for example which I've done a few days ago. I've even invited some colleagues for dinner. It is my first time creating this dish and I enjoy cooking it up.

Mainly also because I love food in general. Which gives me the idea for this week's contest. From 5-star luxury food to homecooked delights, I want you to share your home cook meal with me. You must definitely include photos of the dish, the process and the ingredients. Talk about your dish and how you prepare it. It doesn't have to be complex. It can be as simple as a toasted bread while you add some creativity in introducing your dish.

Making Wontons by @bengy

Photo by @bengy

In the cold winter months, there is nothing better than a bowl of noddles, veggies and wontons. Wonton are the Chinese take on the soup dumplings that seem to be a staple part of pretty every cuisine culture all over the world. Take some pastry and stick stuff in it... fry it, bake it, soup it, steam it!

Anyway, Wontons can be served up cooked in soup or deep fried for a nice snack! It is also a great thing to make a huge batch of, to store in the freezer for those moments when you just want to heat up a nice warm soup for a cold winter's lunch (or dinner.... or breakfast!).

A dish for 'zord189 and another for Aran by @zeleiracordero

Photo by @zeleiracordero
And who is @zord189? The creator of the challenge... And who's Aran? My grandson! Why another dish? Because this is the second time I've participated in a culinary challenge within Steem and I'm taking him as my muse to create something in the kitchen that he likes and that can be done with the reduced input these days... That's creativity! To make culinary magic with the little that arrives at our pantry because as everybody knows, the peanuts are very raw in Venezuela and so we have to eat them, (I exaggerate with the metaphor, but our eating habits have been changing due to socio-political circumstances)

A chili recipe you can use to win a cook-off! by @jayna

Photo by @jayna
Here in the U.S., chili is a big deal. I would love to hear from you about what it's like in your area (U.S., elsewhere in North America, Central/South America or abroad), as to whether chili has cultural importance. Here there are chili cook-off events that you can take part in. The recipe I'm going to share with you here helped me win a chili cook-off at my job, among about 30 entries.

Honorable Mentions (0.5 Steem)

Rustic Chopped. by @oneray

I don't know if this dish has already existed in another country as I have prepared it, but we loved the taste. It is simply a mixture of two things and we enjoyed it to the fullest for the taste it had.

The dish consists of rustic potatoes, roasted male banana, beef, pork and grilled sausages with a super seasoning that I prepare and distribute in some places of the market. Where there is a Venezuelan, eat meat with Adobo.

Healthylicious Chicken Tofu with Mixed Veggies by @iamraincrystal

Thank you @zord189 for this timely contest. I have been doing a bit more homecooking lately to improve our diet. If you follow my feed, I shared a photo of another homecooked meal and mentioned about DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet plan that my daughter subscribed to for a month. This was to keep her cholesterol level in check, as it was borderline during her last annual physical check up. We decided to alter our food intake in order to have an improved, healthier lifestyle.

For last night, I was scheduled to cook chicken tofu.

A pork leg baked in San Valentine´s by @carolinacardoza

If life gives you lemons, learn to make lemonade and if life gives you a leg, then put it in the oven and eat it with a nice salad. That's what I did today my friends, perhaps many will be surprised to see me making pork leg at this time, but as I tell them, when something comes into your hands just enjoy it.

Half moon of corn by @antoniarhuiz

Venezuelan food in essence is very simple but delicious; it does not require big or strange condiments and although it seems to be the same seasoning, it all depends on the individuality of each person. For example, the typical empanadas are basically corn dough but the taste is in the filling. There are empanadas made with cheese, fish, chorizo, meat, cheese, squids and many other shapes.

Pesto Picking Time - From the Garden to the Table by @porters

I like to use multiple herbs in my pesto and the herbs I have ready in the garden is rosemary, lemon thyme, arugula and cilantro along with the basil.Once I have my pesto pickings done I need to round up my ingredients for making zoodles. Zoodles (zucchini cut like noodles) are my Keto alternative to use instead of high in carbs - noodles.

Being in Vietnam and all alone by myself, home cooking is an essential survival kit. After all, I can't be eating out all the time. Thankfully, I love cooking though cooking for one person can be difficult at times and dull. Nevertheless, it's a good therapy since retail therapy just isn't fun here.

Awesome Banana Pudding by @justclickindiva

Apologies in advance everyone, but I have a dish that my family calls "damn delicious." They like my home cooked meals, but their favorite dishes of mine are my desserts. And one in particular, my dessert to die for -- my banana pudding.

Delicious homemade beet arepitas. by @marybellrg

Photo by @marybellrg
The arepa is a dish that is a tradition in Venezuelan cuisine. While it's true that other countries claim the origin of it, it's no less true that in Venezuela, my country, it's a star icon in all kitchens, from the most humble to the most sophisticated.
