Probably this. I don't really remember since I started pretty young. Might have been a boxed cake, tuna salad or jello if you count that as cooking.

Turning on the stove or cutting things up counts as cooking. Sometimes, even dialing the phone for delivery counts as cooking, if who washes the dishes has a bearing on the matter.

If dialing for delivery counts then I'm practically an executive chef! I'm really good at it.

I can't remember if I had an easy bake oven or my girlfriend did - we had such fun with it though.

My firsts - cinnamon toast, rice pudding, meatloaf, creamed something on toast - can't be sure but hard boiled eggs & white sauce (Penny's in a can - yuk)

Only an Executive Chef if you have all the delivery numbers memorized!

scrambled eggs

The first cooking I remember was constantly stirring the pudding or gravy or white sauce for my mom until it thickened.

I was cooking bacon and scrambling eggs for myself very early, and I remember I'd get up early Sunday morning and bake a coffee cake from scratch while my folks were still in bed.

For an entree, I learned how to cut up and poach a chicken from Julia Child, a recipe I still use.

My mother was always a good cook/baker & liked to have the kitchen to herself. I had a bit of a weight problem as a young teen and the thing that comes to mind is a healthy turkey chili. It turned out REALLY good & I was finally taking control of what I ate

The first thing I remember cooking was either boiled eggs or mashed potatoes. One of my brothers loosened the cap on the salt and as a result the potatoes were wretched. As for the egg, well it was probably still on the ceiling of the kitchen when they torn the house down. I forgot it was boiling and it exploded. Mom never taught me a thing about cooking but she was not a good cook, always hated it. But in her defense she did bake well.
