chili - mcall's cook book (one of those thin weekly paper back booklet collection offers at the super market)

My dad taught me how to make a Pineapple Upside cake. I think I was around 8 or 9. About two weeks later I was allowed to make it on my own except for the part about taking the hot pan out of the oven.

Stone Soup

My first time was not solo! No, no! It was making Stone Soup at girl scout camp! Each person added an ingredient that they brought for soup. As the leader read the story, we each added our ingredients...then we sat around watching the soup pot like a group of proverbial witches tending the caudron. The soup was YUMMY! It was loaded with veggies and was hot on a very cool fall evening. What a warm fuzzy memory for me! Thanks for suggesting it!

A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

The first recipe I remember following on my own was for meatloaf. It was in a children's cookbook and I made it for dinner. Chopped the onion and everything. I was probably 9 or 10.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Chocolate chip cookies. And I remember making rice pudding because my dad said he liked it.

My son's first recipe, which is ensconced in my cookbook, says, "Put hot dog in microwave and cook til it wiggles."

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
