I always wanted a food overhaul that brought buffs and negatives myself. so you might get a temporary buff from something but also a negative factor for it's use. Ql of ingredients and skill would impact ql of final food, which would impact the buff/time. Possibly some rare ingredients to lessen the negative sides. I dug out my old spreadsheet I was using before for it, looks like it had a lot of new cooking utensils, intermediate recipes and final recipes. An example of intermediate: Pie Shell Apple Pie Filling Blueberry Pie Filling Cherry Pie Filling Lemon Pie Filling Pumpkin Pie Filling Strawberry Pie Filling and Apple Pie Filling would use: Baking Mixing Bowl Wooden Serving Spoon Pie Shell Apple Butter Flour Sugar The plan was in some cases to allow 'any herbs' to be used to make the food item in some cases as well, not always specific things. Really to give players a reason to use each food and even temporary skillboost or exp gain in some things possibly.
