Having some variety makes it easy for everyone to pick the item that works best for them and you can create your own combination of yummy things as well. Top off your taco salad with a bunch of salsa or a tiny bit of queso. You can also use a dressing like a cilantro ranch or creamy jalapeno to give your cooking games just a bit more of a kick than you get with regular dressings, but again, this part of the cooking games will be very much a matter of personal taste.

Cooking games don't have to be anything extravagant, of course. Playing the cooking games is simply a way to expand your cooking skills, learn a few new recipes and enjoy yourself at the same time. When you embrace the cooking games, you're able to see just how much you can learn, enjoy - and of course - eat!

Start with a triffle dish, some angel food cake, fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Then, start building your layers. Tear up the angel food cake for the bottom. Then, cut up the strawberries, sprinkle with sugar and add for the next layer. Next, smooth on some whipped cream before repeating with your cake, strawberries and cream for layer upon layer of yummy goodness. Top with some fresh strawberries and consider adding other fruits to really make this triffle cooking game truly delicious.

Your picnic can have sandwiches that you've made and some fruit you've cut up into a salad. Include some chips and dip and a bottle of lemonade and you've got quite a treat prepared for the two of you to share and enjoy. Then, for dessert, you can pull out the sweet treat that you've prepared and enjoy some brownies or perhaps a few cookies with pink sprinkles. After all, as we all know, it’s the thought that counts, and planning means you've put a lot of thought into your preparations!

This is the perfect combination for a homemade vegetable soup. Start with the chicken stock and cut it down with water if it’s too salty for you. Then start slicing and dicing. Simply cut up all of your various vegetables into small pieces and toss them into the chicken stock. Since the cooking game wouldn't be complete without something of substance, defrost the chicken, grill it p and then chop it up into the soup if you’d like or toss in a handful of rice toward the end of the cook time to really make your cooking games fulfilling.

The next time you get an urge for some chocolate, indulge your appetite with some brownies. And don’t just go for the regular ones. There are so many different flavors and types of brownies to try that you should never limit yourself by trying just the basic chocolate ones. Make your cooking games a chance to try the different brands and styles of the chewy treat. Make brownies with frosting, with nuts, with chocolate chunks and with swirls of caramel. The more you try the more you’ll realize that brownies are perhaps the very best dessert around.

Potatoes. You can’t go wrong with potatoes. People on all sorts of diets like to eat potatoes and you have plenty of choices as to how to prepare them. You can cut up new potatoes and season them before pan frying. Or create mashed potatoes with a bit of gravy on the side. They are easy to transport and everyone will love your cooking games.
Salad. A salad is another easy item to bring, and it has the added bonus of not being too hot to carry easily. Your salad should be a bit more than just a head of lettuce – try and make it more exciting than the basics, but bringing something green to a gathering shows a bit of balance in the cooking games as well.
