Table of Recipes for Harvest Moon DS

These are organized by utensil and written in the same order as how they’ll
appear in your cookbook so it should be fairly easy to go down the list and
check them off as you cook them. For products that come in different sizes 
like milk or eggs, any size is ok unless the recipe lists otherwise. Happy

I got a few of these recipes off a couple of Japanese sites which no 
longer exist. I always want to give credit where it’s due, so I give 
a big 'arigato' to whoever the fans are that had those sites up.

Special thanks to Natsume for making a game that never seems to get old 
and manages to entertain me no matter how many versions of it I play. 
Thankfully I’m secure enough in my manliness to tell my friends that 
I’m busy petting my cows ^^

Also thanks to GameFAQ’s. I’ve gotten info countless times for quite a 
few years from this site so it’s about time I give something back. This
is my first submission and I hope that some Harvest Moon fans will be 
able to make good use of it. 

Also, if there are any errors here I hope the HM fans will let me know
so I can correct this guide.

Big thanks to Rose Of Blood for sending me a correction for the fish
sticks recipe. Now everyone can enjoy the little nuggets of pureed
fish! ^^

I also need to thank Chaos Azeroth for giving me a working recipe
for the Chirashi Sushi.. seems I mistranslated the one that I had
written in this guide and put a note asking someone to send me a
recipe that works for it.. I'm glad someone finally did. Thanks! 

More thanks goes to Anna Chibi and Kess for letting me know that I
had my wires crossed and accidentally reversed the recipes for the
Bodigizer XL and the Turbojolt XL. They're correct now and we have 
these two ladies to thank for it! 

Ok now for the note about the buckwheat flour. I've gotten quite
a few letters about how to go about obtaining it so I'll just 
list everything. Some people say that you should be able to just
get the flour at the end of the Year's End festival, but I'm handed
noodles not flour. Seems in the japanese one the player was given
flour and there was a translation error. However, some people who
got their copy more recently have told me that they do get the flour
so maybe the mistranslation was only in the first batch of games
like mine. I've also been told that if you talk to the mayor with
absolutely nothing equipped then you'll get flour even when you've
been getting noodles. So anyway, that's everything I've heard so
far about the buckwheat stuff so I guess just try everything and 
see if any of these options work for you. I can only hope they'll
make it a bit more simple on the Wii and try to do a better job 
with some of the translation ^^

The buckwheat issue is solved (kinda). If you're able to get it,
make sure your slots are empty at the festival or it won't be
given to you (you'll get noodles instead). Now I've also recieved 
some version info and it turns out that some of us ARE bugged.
While the Japanese versions and the European versions are ok, only
the later US versions are ok. The early US copies are bugged and
not only can we not get the flour, but we can not marry the witch
or goddess either. In any case, the versions are as follows:
Version 1.0 - ABCEN0J13 = bugged
Version 1.05 - ABCEN0J22 = bugged
Version 1.1 - ABCEN1J09 ABCEN1J11 or later = works properly

so the bad news is that if you use the procedure above and you do
not get the buckwheat flour, chances are you have an early version
and it simply isn't possible to obtain it. Yeah it sucks, my game
is one of the early versionsm ><

Thanks goes to Kong Xiong for giving me confirmation about the
bug issues, and he provided the software version numbers. Hopefully
this stupid flour issue is solved now for all of us!

Anyone else who catches things that are incorrect or has any useful 
info to give, please don't ever hesitate to write :)
