First off, this is my first big suggestion. It's not gonna be very good. Plus, I'm not a very good cook, but I really felt like posting this. Second, I'm making this because I feel like cooking in this game is vague.
(Also I like food)
Oh, this also isn't just adding more Well Fed Buff Foods.
It will have foods with different effects.

So, without further ado, here is my suggestion for a possible future cooking update.



A Female Town NPC
Requirements to move in: Must have a cooking pot be obtained once in your world
Possible names:
Alayna
Bianca
Clarisse
Désirée
Edith
Elaine
Jacqueline

Sells:
Cooking Pot (Current item): 50 silver
Sugar: 50 copper
Material
Lemonade liquid enhancer: 25 silver
Material
Orange juice liquid enhancer: 25 silver
Material
Blue raspberry liquid enhancer: 25 silver
Material
Apple juice liquid enhancer: 25 silver
Material

All 4 of these can be combined with any potion to add the effects
of their respective smoothies to potions.

Salt: 50 copper
Material
Pepper: 50 copper
Material

Wiener Dog: 25 silver
Material
Tooltip: It better not be made out of what I think it is......

Meatballs: 50 copper
Material
Ammo for: Meatball gun
Does 6 damage

NPC Weapon: Meatball Gun (As suggested by @MadCat)
Uses meatballs as ammo
Does 7 damage
Use time: 14
Knockback: 5.4
Tooltip: Who say's food isn't deadly?
10% chance to drop on death.


New items:


Blender
Crafted With: 2 Iron and 6 glass
Place on top of any household surface
Tooltip: Used for making smoothies and mixing drinks



Microwave
Crafted with: 4 iron, 3 Glass and 1 Torch
Place on top of any household surface
Tooltip: Allows you to heat up drinks and food.


Cutting table
Crafted with: 10 Wood
Main use: Allows you to cut food into half's, splitting how long their effect lasts.
Tooltip: Allows you to cut stuff up


Currently only pumpkins exist as fruit's in this game. So, here are some more.


Apples, oranges, lemons, and blue raspberries
All 4 are materials
All 4 can be eaten for 25 HP
Each has a chance to be found on world generated trees (Aside from raspberries) which, when cut, drop the fruit along with a chance for a special acorn for that fruit.
The chance for the acorn depends on tree size.
Place the special acorn, and that tree will grow.
Blue raspberries will come from jungle grass, with a better chance to come from bigger grass.
(Works like worms and stone/dirt piles)
Blue Raspberries will come in quantities of 7-12 each from large grass, and 1-3 from small grass.



Wheat
Can be obtained by cutting up grass with sickle. (Same as hay.)
Material


You can make a smoothie for each fruit you obtain, which can be combined with ice to make a smoothie for that version. (As suggested by @XenoCat)

Added 2 new poll options as well.
Edit 1: Added a normal food and Misc. Section.
Edit 2: Added new items to normal food along with wiener dog being sold by cook.
Edit 3: Been a while since I came here. Anyway, added 8 minute spirit (Don't judge.)
and some changes to bubble gum, liquid enhancer prices and lemon smoothie effect.
Gonna edit this reply for anything else I add :sigh:
