One of the last things I have to do is complete 120 alchemy recipes. I was planning to use the formula I've collected as an in-game checklist, since it shows a ? if you haven't yet made an item.

As I began paging through my list I noticed that I'm missing a lot of very basic formula. For instance, formulas 1 through 5: Sandwich, Fishburger, Cheeseburger, Tonic, and Pixie Dew. I realize that I can just make these by following a guide online, and it does count towards my alchemy total, but I'm curious - where would I find these recipes that I've missed?

If it helps the only remaining quest I have is to complete the War God's Ax.

Why the downvote? This seems like a legitimate question with a not obvious answer. – Yuck Mar 5 '13 at 23:51
