I made spaghetti when I was nine. It was not very good.

Mother taught us boys to be self sufficient at a very young age, and plus nothing can stop a young fat hawaiian boy from eating, Lol

I never learned to cook at home so when I went away to college my roommates had to teach me. Pork chops were and have since been a godsend. All you have to do is fry them.

I have absolutely no recollection. Definitely after I married.

Sadly, it was probably Hamburger Helper in college. Does that even count as a meal?

I think it was one of those Chef Boyardee Pizza Kits. I was about 5!

I've been teaching my son how to cook since he was little. He's very good at it, and does most of the cooking in his relationship.

My first meal was fried pork chops....and I have the burn/scar to show it! I was a preteen and my mother worked nights. My dumb behind thought it would be cool to flip the the chops like a pancake. Ended up with hot grease on my left forearm. Great lesson! I don't like fried foods because of it!

LOL I married a keeper too, bless his heart (or stomach.) I never cooked growing up or living at home with my parents. My mother prepared 3 meals each day and I never asked or questioned how it was done. After I married I will never forget the first meal I cooked and realized "my goodness I have a problem."

Rice turned out to be a white blob with matching brown gravy blobs, bottom layer of peas was stuck/glued/burned to the bottom of the pot and the poor pitiful pork chops looked so nice and brown to have ice crystals inside. I will never forget that first attempt to cook, apron on, like I was Betty Crocker in the kitchen.

I headed to my mother's home to get some advice and then bought cookbooks.

Cooking looked so easy when I enter the dining room at my mom's and sat down to eat, anybody could do it.

It was French onion soup from Julia Child's cookbook.
