The Spice Jar from the Ferun setting is close to what you describe. It does however provide some bonuses aside from good tasting food. A Pathfinder solution could easily be created using Wonderous Items rules. With DM approval any item can be created. This item would likely be a continuous prestidigitation effect. Which by This Chart means it would cost ...

I think you're thinking of "One roll, to go" from Dragon #113. From the article: Included are three tables that will greatly expedite the die-rolling process. They emulate, respectively, 5 rolls, 10 rolls, and 20 rolls of a 20-sided die. The numbers across the top indicate the to-hit number (1 is left off since there is always a 100 percent chance of ...

Timelords (1987 for 1st edition, 1990 for 2nd) was another RPG that had the players generate characters based on themselves. It was not actually a fantasy game, but a time travel game. It did have, as a default setting, the idea that the GM had brought a strange new d20 to the game session, which turned out to be a timetravelling device. The device ...

Multiverser (published 1997), has a system in which the PC is an alternate version of the player. The game starts with the DM describing you dying, and then you start controlling yourself in another universe. Whenever you die, you go to another universe. Anyone who travels this way is known as a 'verser'. The universe can range from fantasy to sci-fi. ...
