Applejack discovers a dark secret about Rainbow Dash.

She can't cook.

Out of the kindness of her heart, Applejack tries to teach Rainbow Dash a few basic recipes. But what starts as a cooking lesson soon turns into a bit more than that, especially when sparks start to fly - both figuratively and literally. Through this culinary misadventure, Applejack and Dash quickly discover that the potential exists for them to become more than just friends.

But will this relationship prove successful, should they choose to pursue it? What will their friends and Applejack's family think? Will Dash to actually learn how to cook? Only time will tell...

(An AppleDash shipfic, just to clarify. Originally a one-shot, now expanding to a full story.)

Big Mac did not sound happy, yet still used no more than two words.
And they seemed in character, well done, a mustache and a like:moustache:

Loved the story! 5 out of moustaches for you. :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:/:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

This was EPIC! And the part with Big Mac was hilarious. I am absolutely faving this and a thumbs up! :heart:

Very sweet and funny. Well done. I love a good AppleDash fic where they argue, the ship just isn't as fun without it. :ajsmug:

Haha! :rainbowlaugh: i love this story! It's both awesome and hilarious. Very good :raritystarry: :pinkiehappy: I love AppleDash shipping as well, so the perfect story for me ^^

Well, this is a little strange...I just submitted a story this afternoon about Rainbow Dash being unable to cook. :twilightsheepish:

I was strongly considering the name "A Dash of _____," as well.

Loved it! :pinkiehappy: Though, I fear I have to tell you, you use y'all incorrectly. y'all = you all, which means there needs to be at least two people present. Trust me, I'm from Tenessee, I know. It's something I've noticed a lot of people don't know though, so no big.

LMFAO, Big Macintosh! I've NEVER seen him react like that in a story!

:applejackunsure: :rainbowhuh:


That was loads of fun and happy. Very cute and enjoyable. :heart:

There were a couple of points there where I had to ask myself, "Self, are you laughing too much?"

I was. And I'd do it again.

I like to think that Big Mac's reaction could not have been more perfect.

There are very few stories that I want to re-read purely for the laughs. This is one of those kind of stories.

'Rainbow Dash echoed her friends' movements, and stood up on her own hind legs. However, the rugged earth pony possessed a more powerful build than her, and was thus slightly taller. Dash had to hop up and hover a few inches off the ground in order to stay at eye level with her.'

^ WTH man!? They're the same size! The SAME size!!! :twilightangry2: Grr, headcanon sometimes, anyways good story.

Ha! What a wonderful story! I really enjoyed it and it was a good silly fun story. :rainbowlaugh:

Wow. Lots of favorable reviews and feedback. Thanks y'all! :pinkiehappy:

1020140 Well that's an unfortunate coincidence. :rainbowderp: Oh well, I'm sure they're different enough that no one will get bothered or badger one of us about stealing ideas. Not like I care, anyway. :rainbowlaugh:

1020228 And I'm from Mississippi. :ajsmug:

1020821 I'm... sorry? I don't see why AJ being an inch taller when she stands at full height is such a problem. It makes sense that an earth pony, built for strength and ruggedness, would be a little bit larger than a pegasus, which is built for speed and agility. I mean, if there's a part in the show where they actually said they're the exact same size, please, by all means, point it out to me. But until then, I don't see the problem. :rainbowhuh:

I love the story. AJ's accented speech had some flaws here and there but it was still a good read


:twilightoops: Well all ponies were based off the same model design in the beginning. Faust have said as much herself and how she wanted the main cast to be the same size. There would only be a change here or there (such as eye color or mane), but most ponies had the same body type. Later things were different allowing for more diversity like tall unicorns. Visual it's clear that the main 6 are the same size aside from the extra parts that a unicorn and pegasus possess.

:moustache: There has been no prove that earth ponies are stronger than the other races. That is, and always will be, a common fan head-canon. Actually pegasus were more the warrior class type. This has been shown quite a few times in the show, from their history, how they work as one to even being used in an army. Earth ponies live closest to the ground and have built up many land basic traits as a result but they're not stronger. If so A.J won't have lost in hoof-wrestling and Pinkie and not Fluttershy would have been used to pull the cart that went after Applejack.

Again nice story, sorry if I'm being hard on you it's just a pet peeve of mine.

1022452 Oh dear. Any particular problems you'd like to point out? It's not the "y'all" thing again, is it?

1025317 Ladies and gentlecolts... I present to you the best comment. :pinkiehappy:

1025474 Well dang, I didn't actually expect ya to have a way to back that up. :ajbemused:

Okay, alright, I concede that I am apparently wrong, and AJ and Dash are, in fact, the same size. :facehoof: BUT, while I respect your opinions and apologize for causing you frustration, I will not be changing that part of the story. Personal preference and interpretation aside... the image of Dash having to hover to be eye-level with AJ is just too amusing/cute to pass up. :rainbowlaugh:

1025533 I think it was just some wrongly spelt words but I do not claim to be an expert on AJ's accent

Wow, that was a nice read! :pinkiehappy: I'm not much for shipfics, but that was very good. :twilightsmile: You get 5 spikes. :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:


That's fine. I have seen fictions that does the opposite. :ajsmug:

Eh appledash nothing particularly special bout this story. it was well written i just didn't find it that interesting personally. still deserving of a green thumb

pinch of cinnamon

Wait, what?:rainbowhuh:

1045730 What what? Cinnamon is a great additive to pancakes, and in this case, it's supposed to work in cohesion with the apples. Y'know, like apple-cinnamon muffins. Only a pancake.

I dabble in baking. :moustache:

And if you mean the pinch thing as a unit of measurement... Just because ponies can't pinch with their hooves doesn't mean they can't pinch with other things like tongs and stuff, and dragons/griffins/dogs/other critters can still pinch. So yes. Lack of fingers does not mean lack of term/measurement. :trollestia:

So I had originally intended for this to be a one-shot, and leave it at that. But my curiosity started nagging at me, and I began to wonder how the rest of AJ's family would react and feel. And then I wondered how the rest of the Mane 6 would react and feel as well. Would they be accepting, disgusted, neutral, happy, disturbed, supportive...? And then I started coming up with ideas, and we all know how that usually turns out. :pinkiecrazy:

So yeah, this is totally gonna be a multi-chapter fic now. Hope y'all enjoy. :moustache:

Yes. YES. I was hoping that there would be more. You have made my day! :rainbowkiss:

Oh, god I am loving this! Please, more! I love the line "And in that moment, Dash felt part of her soul die." Gotta say though, Granny Smith trolled AJ this chapter and it was awesome! Can't wait to read more!

Points of the internet sir you get them! I would say at least 10. So glad to hear your making this a full fic! Good luck and thanks for the read!

Nice the story continues!:twilightsmile: Favorited and watching! AppleDash is my favorite paring!

I see that Applejack's not looking to happy that Rarity's about to find out what's going on, lol! :rainbowlaugh:

Well...the fan's about to be hit with some shit...

Hooray! :pinkiehappy: I was hoping this wasn't a one shot! I can't wait to hear what happens next!

Great chapter! :pinkiehappy: More please! Congrats, Fluttershy.:yay:

damn it why wasn't I told you were making this multi part? I already marked it as liked, isn't that enough. Well once Rarity finds out, cats out of the bag.

1075596 And then everyone in Ponyville and the surrounding area finds out that Applejack and Rainbow Dash are dating. :ajsmug:

I found this chapter hilarious. Scootaloo knows what a fillyfooler is? We must go deeper!

:applejackunsure: Har har har!

Ha! Fluttershy called it! Lol.

"pay up!... That's if you don't mind that is...." :yay:

So will AJ have to pick up painting now?:rainbowlaugh:

Oh I can't wait to see the awkwardness when they go to Applejacks family dinner! Meeting the family is gonna be a trip!

Scootatroll is best pony.

I'm enjoying this so far. It has a few elements holding it back, including some characters feeling 'off', but the effort you're putting into it shows and it is taking a different approach to an AppleDash story than I've seen so far so kudos on originality. I'll be keeping an eye on this~ :twilightsmile:
