    This is a guide to help you cook all recipes required for this achievement.

    As you may know, recipes are either learned by watching the cooking show "Queen of Sauce" on TV (Wednesdays and Sundays). Or you will get random mail from people that you befriended with their favorite recipe for you to learn.

    These friend recipes are unlocked as follows:

    All other recipes are learned by watching "Queen of Sauce".

    Below is a checklist of all ingrediens you have to keep in order to cook all recipes:

    Here are all meals you can cook in picture form.

    Note: It doesn't matter if the ingrediens have silver or gold star, the cooked dish will always have the same value(s) of gold or buffs. So best to just use no-star ingrediens to cook all recipes.
    Also, please note that eating them won't count to this achievement. So if you receive meals in the mail or as loot from monsters, you still have to cook them yourself!

    Here is the link to the god-site, which will help you a lot! Not only for this achievement:

    Warning!: Please see below comment of Cower Before me - The "Cookies" recipe can glitch, if you have either a George or an Alex cutscene at the same time! Be sure to gain hearts in this house one after another. And if you're on more than 3/4 heart on one of either Evelyn, George or Alex go to the house and check if there is a cutscene.
    "Solution" to above glitch: See below comment from Axtrica - In his Winter of Year 2, Gus sells the cookies recipe in the bar.

    o SeduLOUs o Mine has glitched and I never received a vegetable medley from Caroline (she is now 10 hearts). Anyone ever seen this recipe in the saloon bar? Really don’t want to do a whole new game for it!

    Rusty Nail zh @o SeduLOUs o : Did you complete many tasks in the community center or Joja store? I've read in forums that people only unlocked certain recipes after completing tasks there, even though they had the amount of hearts required. Good thing is that Caroline only has 1 recipe to give, so you can't glitch out of a "lesser heart recipe".

    o SeduLOUs o I’ve already completed the community centre (via bundles not joja) and every friend is now on maximum hearts. I’ve obtained and cooked every recipe except for vegetable medley so I don’t think it’s fixable :(
