❤ Ola Foodies ❤
There are some really amazing entries that are submitted
for this challenge, but unfortunately, I cannot support them -
because not ALL the criteria have been fulfilled...
I have let it slide this time around, but simply cannot continue to support
the entries if they don't fulfill ALL the criteria in future.
So, on that note - I have decided to put the "boring details"
at the beginning of this post again and have shared the featured entries
PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE CHALLENGE CRITERIA,
AS THEY HAVE BEEN UPDATED.
🍒 This challenge goes out to all the real Steemit foodies 🍒
it's time WHIP out the creative cook in you!
And before I go any further,
Let me just say that this challenge is open to EVERYONE
(Boys and girls, Young and old)
whether you consider yourself a professional,
novice or complete disaster in the kitchen!
The objective here is purely creativity!
It's as easy as PIE, I promise hehe
(see what I did there...huh? huh? lol - ok, moving along...)
INTRODUCING THE #WHATSCOOKINGCHALLENGE
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE CHALLENGE
In addition to being a complete wine glutton hehe, I am also a HUGE foodie as my @steemitbloggers family know well… I absolutely LOVE to cook (and eat...lol) - always experimenting with different ingredient and flavour combinations. I seldom follow recipes verbatim – most of the time, I will whizz through them, glancing briefly at the ingredients and method – then heading off to the supermarket, forgetting most of what I have read on the recipe and then improvising,
ending up with something totally awesome and unique!
I know how much I love pushing the boundaries and experimenting in the kitchen, no matter how outlandish the ideas may seem to others. I also love to learn from others and then adapt the ideas to my own tailored tastes. So I thought it would be awesome to see how creative other people get in their kitchens... whether it is a "pimp'd" toasted cheese sandwich or a "rebel" gourmet appetiser.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Yes, here comes the boring recipe part
with rules and boundaries... JUUUST KIDDING!
Rules are meant to be broken!
>Insert evil grin here<
ok, ok.... seriously...
here's how it's going to ROLL:
(hehe could not help myself with that one)
NB: The #whatscookingchallenge is an ONGOING challenge, so you can enter WHENEVER you want and as OFTEN as you want!
2: Create and publish a post showcasing something that
you have prepared in your kitchen which is either
a) uniquely yours, or b) has been adapted and made your own.
(The more elaborate the post the better, naturally...)
PS. This is NOT limited to "plates of food" - it can be preserves, snacks, baking anything!
3: NB! Accompany the post with at least 5 photos of whatever it is that you have prepared and the process - as well as a photo of you WITH your dish! Guys this is COMPULSORY - posts without the selfie... won't be considered
4: Tag at least 5 (but not limited to) of your foodie friends
that you think would like to participate...
So what do YOU get out of participating?
Well you get to share your inner chef with Steemit, OBVIOUSLY... hehehe!
Oh, and... for whatever it is worth - you will receive...
1: An upvote from me (15 - 100%)
2: A resteem by me IF I fall in love with your prepared dish :)
3: Random entries will be featured every time I re-announce the challenge.
- Most importantly, you get to HAVE FUN!!! sharing your creativity in the kitchen and you will also get to scout out the creativity of others by searching the #whatscookingchallenge tag.
GET IT? GOT IT? GOOD....
Ok Girls and Boys...

And pump up the JAMS while you are at it!
(hehehe, this just never gets old!)
I will be re-announcing this challenge every few days (or more often, depending on my mood swings lol) and will feature three random entries in every re-announcement of the challenge.
Cannot WAIT to see what all you fantasticals share... hehe!
Right... let's get to it!
let's go check out what everyone else has been cooking up...
it seems that Mussels were popular this week :)
#WhatsCookingChallenge : FEATURED ENTRIES
I was challenged by @watersnake101, his entry was amazing! A trek beside him to the local market begins a post filled with pics to get your stomach churning!
As I write this my stomach is growling in anticipation of yet another helping of this Italian/Mediterranean styled delicacy. This dish is inspired by something I ate at a local Italian Restaurant quite recently and this was my first attempt at replicating the dish – which I think I nailed! It’s a pasta dish with a picante (hot and spicy) sauce, a mixture of Moroccan and Italian perhaps?
Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx
