If I could make this my self I would, but I've tried moding and I just don't understand it. Anyway I think it would be nice/cool to have a sister mod for Harvest craft that is like a cook book. You open it up like a normal book with right clicking. And in there are different tabs. tabs would be something like
Vanilla cooking: this would have all the base game food n how to make it
Dairy Based: this is your Fresh milk, heavy cream, butter, cheese, ice cream, and plain yogurt
Spices: would have black pepper, cocoa powder, curry powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, salt, vanilla, sugar, flower, corn meal, salad dressing, vinegar, cooking oil, soy sauce, and edible root.
Spreadables: is peanut butter, guack, mayo, mustard, jellies, ext
and that would go on. And some tabs would have a sub tab like Side Dishes would have beans,potatoes,vegetables as its sub tabs. Dinner n lunch would have tabs for the different types of meat in the game
So like an example. You open the book an go to the dairy based tab. there you want to know how to make Ice cream. it will tell you you need salt, mixing bowl, milk(fresh/normal/or soy) and a snowball. pretty easy. But if you don't know how to make the salt you go to the spices tab n under salt it tells you you need a pot an a bucket of water to make it. after that you can make the salt you need to make the ice cream.
its a cook book. it gives you all the cooking recipes n has em in different categories. You don't even have to put everything into categories. like I said I wanted to try to make this but gave up, but before hand I did just that and set up all the categories. Because of everything you can make with the harvest craft I thing I was able to break it down in to like 15 main tabs. (still a lot I know but thats being vague with like Breakfast/lunch/dinner/soups/ect)
anyway I'm going on an on sorry I do that, I know when I came up with the idea it would be a big project IF i managed to figure it out. Despite that I stil think it would be a useful mod. I mean with how much is in the harvest craft mod. this would make it easier because you wouldn't have to remember everything(or spend time looking it up), its all in a nice little book all ready sorted for you. So like I said, complicated but I think it would be cool n useful for all of us that use harvest craft
