This is the foundation for all my Food & Drink mods. It has resources that are shared across multiple Food & Drink mods and it keeps them from becoming bloated with duplicate items. It also allows you to download all my other content in a modular fashion, giving you more control of the size of your downloads folder.
Core Food and Drink
The Brazen Homestead Cookbook
I made this cookbook object so that there would be an easy way to find all my custom recipes. After organizing them into categories I realized it looked pretty empty so I went ahead and added all in-game recipes to it as well. All recipes can be found in at least one category in the 'Cook by Category' menu.
In addition to that, you can find recipes by Region or by Special Diets, and you can even choose recipes based on the current season you're in!
There is also a menu for Drinks that can be made at the bar as well as a section for making fresh Ingredients like bread and pasta. If you have the Cats & Dogs or Cottage Living Pack or my Cowplant Farming mod installed, then you'll find a menu for Animal Food as well.
There is also a cheat that allows you to learn locked recipes if you shift+click on the cookbook. You can find the cookbook in Appliances > Kitchen Appliances.
Group Cooking with Categories
If you have at least one other sim in your household, you will also have a new option for 'Group Cooking' when clicking on a the cookbook, a counter, fridge, or stove. That option will have menus organized in the same format as 'The Brazen Homestead Cookbook', making it easier to find what recipes you'd like to make with other sims.
Please keep in mind you must have the custom recipes or packs installed for any of the cooking menus to show up.
