You will also be able to search for recipes according to your skill level in cooking. These skill levels are indicated in color just below the recipe name. Here they are from easiest to hardest:
  • Training
    Recipes marked with this are indicative of a recipe that will teach you how to cook something that people might take for granted! It’s a great way to level up your cooking skills from Apprentice to Journeyman or Artisan to Master!
  • Apprentice
    Anyone who knows how to operate a microwave or has basic stove top skills can handle these recipes. Just because you haven’t been grinding your cooking tradeskill doesn’t mean you can’t eat tasty food too!
  • Journeyman
    You’ve actually dabbled in raising your cooking profession. You’ve figured out how to use the oven and the broiler! And dagnabit if you ain’t pretty decent at it too! No microwave nuking needed here! Unless you’re a mage, then nuke away. Recipes here will prove to be no challenge and they give decent XP too!
  • Artisan
    Stuff always tastes better baked, fried or grilled and you know how to do all that. You can multi-task like an AoE tanking pro! Recipes in this section will require a little bit more knowledge of spices and the cooking 1337sp34k but you’ve got all that nonsense covered!
  • Master
    There’s not a word in this cookbook that you wouldn’t know the meaning to. Truss a chicken? Pfft, please. You know how to saute, souffle, filet, and melee. You’d game in the kitchen if you weren’t concerned about how to get sauce out of your controllers.

It can be hard to feed yourself and your family nutritious and delicious meals when you're living on a budget. To help you keep an eye on your gold pieces, you will find at the bottom of every recipe we've included a general pricing list of all the ingredients and how much the recipe should cost you per serving. Please keep in mind that your actual price will vary a little according to where you live and where/how you shop. (i.e. buying off-brand vs. brand name items.)

Lastly, inside all our recipes you will find two more helpful sections- Strategies and LFM. In the Strategy section you will find alternative ingredients or alternative ways to cook the recipe. Sometimes you will also find time-saving tips! In the LFM section you will find optional side dishes that will compliment your meal nicely. These side dishes are not included in the mats list nor are they included in the pricing list.

If you have any suggestions on other helpful features you'd like to see included on AFK Dinner Recipes please let us know in the comments section! We'd love to hear from you!
