Hi everyone who is still in this comm! I hope you are not too shocked to see this on your friends page, since the last entry was in 2011, but I've been wanting to revive this community for ages. I will try to post something frequently and see if it will create new interest.

I'm starting out by re-posting a recipe!fic of mine that appeared in the 2014 Back to Middle-earth Challenge. I hope others will feel encouraged to start posting here again, your own recipe!fics, recipes for foods that might be found in Middle-earth or food related thoughts. Pictures are also welcome. And please feel free to signal boost!

If you are interested in winning the apron, here are the rules and guidelines for the Shire Kitchen Recipe!Fic Challenge 2010!

The theme for 2010 is "Special Ingredient".

Shire Kitchen Recipe Fic Challenge



1. A recipe fic is defined as a story in which a specific food or dish is mentioned, and the recipe for making it is given. If you would like to see examples of Recipe Fics, the previous years’ challenge stories are here:

First Recipe Fic Challenge 2005
Recipe Fics 2006
Recipe Fics 2007
Recipe Fics 2008
Recipe Fics 2009

2. Recipes should be given in such a way that the reader could use it to make the dish described. The recipe may be incorporated in the body of the story (but all ingredients and steps must be specified) or the complete recipe may be added at the end of the story.

3. Stories do not have a minimum or maximum word-count restriction.

4. Recipes should be something the authors have tried and know to be good.

5. Characters and settings: Any characters and settings from the published fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien. (This may even include tales from his non-Middle-earth fiction, such as "Farmer Giles of Ham" or "Roverandom" or others.)

8. Genre: Any genre

9. Ratings: G to R, no NC-17, please, and clearly label all warnings.

10. Deadline: Stories will be posted on Wednesday, April 28. Late stories are allowed, but the random drawing for the winner of the apron will be done on Saturday, May 1, so if your story is later than that, you will miss out on the drawing.

12. You should post your story directly to the community. Just be sure to put your story behind a cut so we don't overwhelm everyone's friends pages. We mods will hold the story posts in the moderation queue until then , so if you wish to post early, that’s all right--we can keep it under wraps until then. Head the story "Recipe Fic: Name of Story by Your Name". And don't forget to tag your story -- "special ingredient 2010". (For that reason, the community will temporarily be on moderated status until the stories are posted.)

13. If you do not have a LiveJournal account, you may e-mail your story to aelfwina@gmail.com and I will post it for you.

14. Previously published stories are eligible if they fit all the other criteria, and were not published in a previous Shire Kitchen Challenge.

We only had three stories entered into the [livejournal.com profile] shire_kitchen Celebrate! Recipe!Fic Challenge, though late entries are always welcome!

My story: Taking the Cake It's Frodo's last birthday before he leaves Bag End on the Quest, and Lily Cotton is making his birthday cake...

The other two stories are:

Of Bread and Butter by [livejournal.com profile] ceshaughnessy While Pippin's mother makes bread, Pippin and Tulip find a new friend.

Sensitivities by [livejournal.com profile] telperion1 In which Nob makes a mistake and worries about the consequences. Even in Middle-earth, they must have had food allergies.
