Definitely a fun romp through Rivendell's kitchens. Who knew cooking could be so hazardous to one's health? My heart goes out to the poor cook in this story, and also to Aragorn, who seems to be eternally burdened with damage control. Poor guy.

Another of the author's delightful "mischief in Rivendell" stories. I love that it is not a lack of ability in the kitchen that defeats the hobbits in their efforts, but simply the size and unfamiliarity of everything. Hilarious!

This is a cute one. One of several pieces the author has written focusing on the time Frodo was recovering in Rivendell, this one is charmingly short and the point well taken. A sweet read.

Absolutely hilarious. This had me laughing, especially when the hobbits got into the soap crystals. This was a well-written, light-hearted moment, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Well done, Budgielover.

The mental images that Budgielover comes up with are generally bound to make me smile, and in this story more than most. But I do hope that Sam eventually got to make that mushroom omelette for Frodo!

Great!! I loved the attack of vicious soap bubbles especially.
