When you start playing the farming game Stardew Valley, you’re going to pick up a lot of White Algae and Green Algae from fishing and monster drops. They’re edible as is but are, to be frank, a little lacking. As the game progresses, you need better ways to heal up or give yourself energy to complete all those farm chores!
Gus’s Cookies from Stardew Valley
To those not in the know: Gus is a non-playable character from the game Stardew Valley who runs the local restaurant and bar known as the Stardrop Saloon. While very dedicated to his business, Gus still finds the time to cater community events—the Stardew Valley Fair, for example—and share food with hungry locals in need.
Mom’s Cookies from Stardew Valley
After a long hiatus, I’m back! And I bring offerings of cookies. Oatmeal raisin cookies, to be specific. Hear me out before you click away!
Fiddlehead Risotto from Stardew Valley
I don't care what this game says, homemade risotto is anything but bland! You get springy and grassy tastes from the fiddleheads, fresh tang from the lemon, and nutty, chewy rice in a savory sauce. The flavor may be mild, but it is pure spring comfort food. It definitely explains why Clint and Kent love this recipe.
Pumpkin Pie from Stardew Valley
Marnie the rancher LOVES pumpkin pie in Stardew Valley. It’s a favorite treat of hers, and after trying this recipe I can absolutely see why—with a sweet and spicy pumpkin custard surrounded by flaky pie dough, it’s hard to resist even in the real world.
Survivor Pudding from Dead by Daylight
Oh Dead by Daylight, you weird lovechild of slasher movie aesthetics and Lovecraftian horror tropes. You are a game of teamwork and survival of the fittest, of both fearing death and relishing murder, of trying to fight a system in which you are eternally bound and trapped.
You are also a game of teabagging and “please stop touching my stuff.”
Blueberry Tart from Stardew Valley
This is the only recipe you learn from Pierre the general store owner in Stardew Valley. It doesn’t take too long, either: you only need a 3-heart relationship before he sends it to you in the mail!
Even more surprising, this is one of Linus’s favorite treats. I didn’t think a man living in the wild would love such a bakery style sweet.
Stardew Valley Recipes: How to Make Ice Cream 3 Ways
It won Jodi first place in a cooking competition. It’s one of Demetrius’s favorite gifts to receive. It’s a treat that almost every character in the game enjoys (except for a few and we’re not naming names). It’s: ice cream!
Who doesn’t love ice cream, really?
Stardew Valley Recipes: No-machine Matcha Lime Ice Cream
This ice cream method is probably the closest to the game, ingredients-wise. There’s only two elements: heavy whipping cream, which provides the fat which gives the ice cream its traditional smooth mouthfeel, and sweetened condensed milk, which provides the sugar that interrupts the production of ice crystals and makes the ice cream easier to scoop.
Rhubarb Pie from Stardew Valley
We're still in the middle of rhubarb season (at least in New England), so now is the perfect time to use it up while we still can.
Enter this perfect rhubarb pie.
