    I would hyphenate home-cooked.
    Apart from that, they seem fine.

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

    I don't like the word this in sentence 2.
    I would either say:
    The steak you ordered seems a bit underdone.
    or:
    This steak seems a bit underdone.

    Maybe I'm wrong here, though.

    The rest is okay in my opinion.

    Cheers!

    You would not be wrong to say either, and your versions are possibly more likely to be heard. IMO, the original is still acceptable.
