This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Added Thai Translation 01/05/11. Thanks to Ginchan_Salin. The Thai version has no submenus, so Thai users should download in Comments even if they only have BG.

Danish translations added. Credits go to LiennaSeren and Caecilie814.

I also attached a new file to this post: Very few (I know of two) people cannot open the sub menus I have used for most of these foods. If you encounter problems with the sub menus, please download the file "cfd_fixedsubmenufiles.rar". It contains all of the canapés, sandwiches and the soups.

I´ve always been hating the fact that there are hardly any food dishes for Sims with few cooking points, so I decided to change this a while ago.

And now I proudly present "Cooking for Dummies", a series of 30 food dishes.

Most of these dishes don´t require a single cooking point and none of them requires more than four.

These foods have been translated to the following languages: English, German, French, Portoguese, Simplyfied Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, Danish , Spanish, Korean.
Biggest thanks to my translators: Nan, maggieleeqq, liviayorke, Lord Darcy,
akiretremo, Marshall1994, LiennaSeren and Caecilie814.

These foods will NOT produce the bug that they´re shown as the dish they were cloned from in the Pie Menu.



Let´s start with the default dinnerware shown on all of the pictures - which is NOT needed for any of these food dishes to work*. Anyway, if someone still wants to have it, here it is.

And if you think "Hey, where the hell are the food dishes???", well just read on...

*the only reason I put the dinnerware first was to avoid exactly this question

Wow, thanks! I used to max out my sims' cooking skills for no other reason but increase food variety. This will definitely make playing much more entertaining!

I found the sentence (stated below) that you used to be very confusing. I had to read it 5 times (2 of those outloud) before I understood what it ment. "These foods will NOT produce the bug that they´re shown as the dish they were cloned from in the Pie Menu." So what you are saying is that these dishes will not produce a bug that happens in the Pie Menu, which shows them as the dish they were cloned. I don't mean to be snotty but your sentence was very hard for me to understand.

Again, thank you very much for the wonderful meals.
However I ran into a little problem (might've been already reported) with two of them. The "mixed appetizers" and the "sausage with potato salad" make my Sims want to learn how to cook them. But as they simply take them out of the fridge fully prepared, they can't learn that and the wish slot is stuck for at least some hours. (Untill the wishes refresh)
Just wanted to let you know.
I'm still amazed at your stuff, not just the foods but also your plants and other objects. Oh, and thanks for that tutorial on your site on how to change the language of foods with SimPe!

Luckypup2122: Did you try it again? I have friends playing the English version and in their game, everything was fine. I really don't know a solution for this issue.
Poo poo: The first one in the Download section is the dinnerware, and you'll have to go through the comments and download in each post the file beginning with "ALL".
DarkieBC: Never made a mistake in a foreign language?
Kazzandra: I wonder why Simaddict uses my GUIDs. However, I'd be willing to make a version with new GUIDs for those who have problems.
hellcat4lyve: yes.
andshesaid: This really is confusing now. eris3000 had this bug with each of her foods when I posted this so mentioned it.
DamnedBoy: Would you pn me so we can go through possible reasons?
KatKaleen: Someone else reported this bug but I've not yet found a solution. I'll pm you when I get it solved.

I'd also like to thank all of you for your comments, though I can't get back to every single one of you. You rock!

I will. But I might not make it this month, there's always so much to do in December, especially because two of my kids are born in that month.
