Characters/Pairing: Frodo Baggins
Book/Source: Lord of the Rings
Disclaimer: Tolkien's the genius, not me.
Bilbo had taught Frodo dozens of recipes over the years, from seed cakes and scones to roast chicken. Some of his favorite memories from his teens and tweens took place in Bag End's expansive kitchen. Often with a dwarf smoking in the corner.
Most of those recipes, however, resided now only in Frodo's memory. So as one last Birthday Gift for Sam and Rosie, he wrote out all the best ones, and bound them together in a simple brown book, which he left in the kitchen by the window, open to let in the sunshine and breeze from the garden.
