....no really! The first thing I learned to make was a lazy daisy (or hot milk) cake. I guess the rest is history!
I figured your first cake was a wedding cake for Barbie and Ken.

I think it is great that you started making cakes so young! You sure make some nice ones now!

i'd have to say it was grilling over coals from a campfire as a boy scout. and geez does that bring back a bad memory.

i remember a particular camping trip on sandy hook island where a cold october rain soaked us for the entire three days. the wind was so bad that it whipped up the wet sand, stinging your face and getting into everything, making it even more uncomfortable.

but the worst part was that, for some ungodly reason, we brought chicken to grill instead of the usual burgers and hot dogs.

since everything was soaked and the wind fierce, we could barely keep a fire going, even inside one of the old bunkers that used to house huge cannons which protected ny harbor during the second world war.

undaunted, we still tried to cook the chicken. after an hour over what little fire we could produce, the chicken "looked" done, and we were starving so everyone just grabbed a piece and chowed down.

on burnt but mostly raw chicken, covered in sand.

i'm amazed that no one got sick from it. all of that wet sand must have killed off the salmonella, lol.

Not me.
I was 12 years old...cooking a midnight snack of toast from a little foldable sterno stove from a sleeping bag in a clear plastic made tube tent halfway thru a 2 day 30 mile Boy Scout hike.
Toast tastes good in the woods when you cook it yourself. I learned that.

I wanted an easy bake oven so bad but Mom just taught me how to use the real thing instead. The first thing I remember making on my own, I must have been around 9 or 10. I got a kid's cookbook and made the meatloaf recipe. Had mashed potatoes and green beans with it.

LOL! When I got the Easy Bake Oven, my mother could only bake. She knew how to cook goulash and baked chicken. It wasn't until i got my hands on a cookbook that the fun started and our menu widened. Mom was glad to give up the reins, she still hates to cook.

When I was little like 4 or 5 I made this "tea" by mixing all of my Nana's spices together with 2 tea bags. It made this really pretty ruby color. I don't think it was very good. But my Nana did try it.
