What was the first thing you learned to cook?

Neat! New category.

What was the first thing you learned to cook?

If I remember correctly, I first learned how to make pancakes. It was only within the last few years that I learned to make them completely from scratch though. One of my good friends and I took a road trip to Ohio a few years ago and stopped at an Amish cheese shop on the Ohio/Indiana border. I bought a cook book... but I have since lost it :-(

Anyway, for those of you cooks out there, what was the first thing you learned to cook?

    • Boy Scouts?

    • Neat. I made it to First Class before I left. I wish I'd stayed in to make Eagle :-/

    • I made it all the way, glad I did, but not all Eagles are created equal.

      A lot of troops are what we call Eagle farms that just crank out awards with minimal effort to be put on resumes. That, and a lot of troops have been co-opted by the LDS church as youth recruitment. The authentic scouting experience is pretty hard to come by.

  • Probably pasta. Super easy to make and has always been my favorite meal.

  • It was probably a beef stew. My mom started teaching me and my brother when we were like 11 and 13. Under duress, I will admit that he is a much more creative cook and probably better than me thinking outside the box and creating recipes, and I like to follow recipes and maybe put a spin on it, but not like he does. It's annoying because whenever we're spending the holidays together, there is this super rivalry over who's food the family will like best. It gets intense.

  • It was an omelette. It was pretty easy, and the more I cook it, the better it gets.
    I still want to learn to bake cakes, that's my next step.

  • This seems like a very common answer but scrambled eggs lol. I used to like to eat them when they were warm but runny. Makes me wanna puke now but I still like over easy fried eggs. I was 6-7.
