Do you like playing games? Do you enjoy cooking? Do you like to occasionally have more than just soda pop and potato chips as snacks for game night? In this Monday blog series, game industry personalities will be sharing some of their favorite recipes for game night munchies. Welcome to Gaming Gastronomy! This week we do some Google-fu to see what the Internet recommends we munch on during game night.
I thought it would be interesting to see what the Internet recommends for our game night munchies. First up, we check out some of my favorite recipe sites. Each of these has added to my recipe files over the years, so how do they recommend we prepare for a game night with friends and family?

Cooking with Dice
Calling all intrepid chefs: we want to help you level-up your cuisine! The Cooking with Dice system uses elements of traditional tabletop role-playing games to turn your kitchen into an adventure zone.
With this gamified cookbook, you can play solo, cooperatively, or competitively with friends and family. Start by selecting a character that combines traditional D&D-style races and classes with the (also) traditional French Brigade de Cuisine. Then, read the fantasy adventure scenario and take on the challenge put before you.
By using our roll tables to substitute in key ingredients, you can create thousands of unique recipes from our formulas. Just roll the dice and see what happens! Cook your dishes, taste-test them, and determine your score. The more points you earn, the faster your character levels up to the prized position of Chef de Cuisine!

So, here’s the deal. In my gaming group, everyone brings in $5 for food, and I (usually) cook up something great. I wanted to share my recipes with people, and maybe get some other good ideas as well.
I have a lot of recipes that cost less than $35 and be able to feed 7 people, preferably leaving leftovers. It is not uncommon for me to cook and for one person to be able to eat for 3-4 days off the leftovers. Also, looking for reasonably healthy foods; as in, not dripping with grease/oil.
In the coming weeks, check back here on Mondays for more delectable recipes from personalities around the game industry.
