According to the Tale of Years, Bilbo settled in Rivendell in 3002.  I think he may well have made a few culinary treats for the elves to thank them for their hospitality.  Written for the 'Headache' prompt.

Jam Making

A clatter of pans drew Elrohir to the kitchen door.  “Whatever is that racket?” Elladan queried.

“Bilbo.  He brought his mother’s old recipe book from the Shire, and wants to make us all some jam.”

The noises stopped, and they heard Bilbo muttering to himself.  “Bother it all!  Why do elves have to be so tall?”

Elrohir peered in to see Bilbo stretching precariously towards a high shelf.  He leaped forward as the hobbit wobbled, only to be hit by a cascade of heavy saucepans.

“Oh dear!  Oh dear!” Bilbo exclaimed.  “I do hope I haven’t given you a headache!”
