The Top Recipes in Grannies Cookbook Mod for The Sims 4

Grannies Cookbook is a mod for The Sims 4 created by Littlbowbub. This mod is a small quality-of-life addition to any Sims 4 household, allowing players to add a modded cookbook to their home. With the Grannies Cookbook mod, Sims can learn many new recipes as they learn to cook. The mod adds a cookbook to every player’s home. This allows the Sims to reference the cookbook to pull off some truly extraordinary meals from comfort foods to Thanksgiving dinners.

Grannies Cookbook requires Sims to interact with the cookbook placed in their house. From there, the recipes are broken up into multiple categories:

  • Snacks
  • Hot Drinks – A tea and coffee machine is required for some of these recipes
  • Cold Drinks
  • Toddler Food – The property must have a highchair present for these recipes
  • Breakfast
  • Meals
  • Dessert
  • BBQ – The property must have a grill present for these recipes

The Grannies Cookbook mod has a few nice features in addition to teaching Sims how to make countless delicious dishes. Grannies Cookbook comes in a variety of styles, so players don’t have to compromise their design choices. Every player will be able to find a cookbook that matches their aesthetic. The cookbook is also portable! Sims can put the cookbook in their inventory and take it with them, so they can cook outside of their home. The Grannies Cookbook mod won’t override or interfere with The Sims 4 appliances, so players can still use the game’s base cooking methods and other Sims 4 mods. All the Sim has to do is choose the recipe they want to make, and they’re golden.

Many of the available recipes are designed to be comfort foods and really resonate with that homemade feeling. Sims can even make feasts for weddings, university celebrations, and holidays.

Although there are many great recipes to choose from and no one recipe is superior to the rest, here are some of our favorites:

  • 4 Tier Flowers Wedding Cake
