I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

UnnamedElement, my husband has a doctorate in chemistry, so he might be able to help. *g* Just drop me a note through the PM system here, or at LJ or DW (same name).

I don't actually watch t.v. I'm afraid, not through any snotyy moral superiority, but since Kev got a huge curved screen it makes me dizzy :/

Excellent!

See my story "Freida's Frypan Frolic" for a tale involving food and Queen Evenstar's winter time melancholy. A few of my readers asked me to Email them my actual recipe.

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I'm glad you enjoyed this and I will, indeed, look for your story.

Lovely! (Both the stories and the recipes.) I like how the recipes bring back memories of the elf's teacher. There is definitely something about baking a dish that brings to mind people who enjoyed it or who first taught you that recipe and you've captured that so well here.



Author's Response:

I'm really glad you like it.  We do associate recipes with people, don't we?  For example those are 'Mum's cinnamon biscuits' in my book where I record recipes.

Fantastic! Such an original slant, at least I have not seen the likes of this before.
I love the perspective, the hints of who, and why, until the end when all is revealed.
Wonderful writing :)

Author's Response:

Thank you!  I first saw a recipe fic in a Big Bang story about Hobbits - I may well have written the first Elf-centric one here... although, of course, once you know what is happening you can see that it is also about hobbit recipes!

What a lovely collection of recipes. I am especially interested in the pepper cake :)

Author's Response:

Thank you!  The pepper cake is rather like a parkin or a gingerbread; if you do try it, let us know how you get on with it.

Yum, these are very tasty stories! I love knowing they are about Tharh

Oh- how did you make me cry at the end of this and leave me feeling so bereft. I assume this is our winter elfing with Sam. Too sad, too poignant and all set with a beautifully written dialogue with Sam's voice SO strong in this. I wish the MEFAs were still around- you would win first place for Hobbits.



Author's Response:

*I wish the MEFAs were still around- you would win first place for Hobbits.*

Oh thank you so much! 

It is almost always our winter elfling with Sam.  If you read carefully, his tutor was Erestor, his teacher was Sam - and just occasionally, as in the 'the well loved voice' in the very first one, or 'Adar' in the meringues, you hear Frodo instead...
