Sims 4 Black and White Cookies

Sims 4 Black and White Cookies

This week’s recipe is the The Sims 4 Black and White Cookie recipe. Sims can make this recipe at cooking skill level four. I’ll be honest and say that I don’t typically have my Sims bake cookies as they tend to gain weight too quickly as it is, but I saw this recipe on the recipe list and thought it might be fun to make in real-life. Hopefully they don’t go to my hips as quickly as the in-game version does!

The in-game version looks pretty similar to what you expect traditional Black and White Cookies to look like, except perhaps, a bit smaller. The ones that my grocery store sells are quite large. I made my cookies smaller to reflect the size that they appear in-game.

Apparently these cookies can also be called half moon cookies, though I guess it depends on where you live. The Sims 4 game calls them Black and White Cookies so I decided to stay true to the game and call them that as well.

Sims 4 Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb Cupcakes

Sims 4 Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb Cupcakes

Today’s recipe is for Sims 4 Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb Cupcakes. These tasty little cupcakes can be made from the Cupcake Machine in The Sims 4 at level 7 cooking. The cupcake machine is a nice little addition to The Sims 4 and allows you to make all sorts of tasty treats for your Sims (and as of the Get to Work Expansion, you can make more than just cupcakes in it!)

Holy plumbob you guys. I figured with a name like “Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb” that I needed to go way overboard on the chocolate with this recipe. And that is just what I did. Chocolate cupcakes filled with chocolate chips, nutella buttercream frosting, and MORE chocolate chips on top. These things are DELICIOUS. My good friend Val (aka 8bitmom aka ValerieAnneC) visited when I made these, so she and her son helped taste test this recipe. It was a hit all around.

Coming up with a nutella buttercream frosting was a fun experiment. Nutella is delicious on its own, but making it into a frosting and putting it on a cupcake just ups the deliciousness by a hundredfold. Be prepared for chocolate overload with this recipe.

So, without further ado… I give you, the Super Chocolate Tummers Bomb recipe!

Sims 4 Taco Casserole

Sims 4 Taco Casserole

Today’s recipe is for Sims 4 Taco Casserole, which is found in the Sims 4 at level 3 cooking skill (and costs 43 simoleons to make). This particular in-game recipe is a staple in my Sims 4 Legacy Challenge family as it feeds a lot of people and seems to fill them up quite nicely.

I thought the in-game item looked pretty tasty, so I decided to take a shot at making a real-life version! The best part about this particular recipe is that it is very customizable. You can add in lots of different optional add-ins depending on your own personal preferences.

If you so desire, this Taco Casserole can also be made vegetarian by substituting refried beans or black beans (no need to cook them beforehand) with the cooked rice instead of the meat. You could even use dairy free cheese and sour cream such as Daiya if you want to make this vegan.

I tried to get the real-life recipe to look as close to the in-game version as possible and i think I did a pretty good job with that. This recipe was well received by my family. I’m going to attempt to make a vegetarian version of it next time to see how it compares.

Sims 4 Signature Cake

Sims 4 Signature Cake

When Pinstar celebrated his 32nd birthday I decided to make him a special birthday cake for the occasion!

The Sims game franchise has always been an integral part of our lives. He and I met through The Sims 2 back in 2005, so I thought that making him a Sims related birthday cake would be pretty fitting. Especially for the very first recipe that I post here. Seeing as the Sims 4 recently released, I thought it might be a good idea to find a cake recipe from the game that I could use. I was intrigued by the Sims 4 Signature Cake recipe.

The Sims 4 Signature Cake looked like it would taste delicious and probably be super chocolatey (and really… who can turn down chocolate?). To further my inspiration and to put my own spin on this cake, I decided to use an idea for a cake that I used to make at work all the time (it was highly requested by my fellow co-workers) a vanilla cake with peanut butter and chocolate frosting.

I decided to kick up my original cake recipe from work by making a peanut butter buttercream frosting instead of just using regular peanut butter. I think it was pretty darn successful if I do say so myself! This was also the first time that I attempted to make chocolate ganache. I was super pleased with the results!
