Recipe Notebook

Maintained By Enkidu


Adds a new section to the the sims Notebook to keep track of learned/unlocked food recipes.

Do you know how there are 27 City Living recipes that your sim can unlock by eating them once? I always had a hard time keeping track of them, especially when playing with multiple sims or switching households. Now I can just check the notebook to see what recipes my sims have already unlocked. I also added Notebook sections for Brindleton Bay, Selvadorada and Batuu food recipes.


Adds a new Recipes section to the Notebook with sub-sections for food recipes from:

  • San Myshuno (City Living) - 27 food recipes
  • Selvadorada (Jungle Adventure) - 10 food recipes (including secret menu), drinks not included
  • Brindleton Bay (Cats and Dogs) - 4 food recipes, drink not included
  • Batuu (Journey to Batuu) - 9 food recipes, drinks not included

Tools and mentions

Thanks to Lot51 for the notebook injector code, tips and resources he shares with the community.

Made possible by the following tools & applications: Frank’s String Table Studio, Sims4Studio, Scumbumbo’s XML Extractor and TDESC explorer with an essential Aha! moment provided by SimsonianLibrary’s Archeology Kit mod.

Would never have existed without the amazing community on the Creator Musings discord.


I used injection on most items so there should be no risk of conflicts with other mods.

Batuu package contains overrides of the loot files that unlock the recipes. All other packages are injection based and should not conflict with anything.

If you use cheat mods or modded skill books to learn the recipes the sim will need to eat a food once in order for it to appear in the Notebook.
