One bit of good news, given all the potential ways you can use ingredients, is that the best combinations will always be prioritised. So you'll always get the best recipe from what you cook. What you can actually cook though depends on what you're cooking on. If you only have a campfire, jump to the roasted and frozen dishes section to see what you can make. The other recipes require a cooking pot, so don't bother trying to make those without one.
There's one important rule though" insects and monster parts make elixirs, while food and seasonings make meals. Mixing them will result in failed dishes and waste your ingredients. So always keep them separate and get cooking!
