The first recipe I learned to cook is "sinigang". It is very easy and one of my favorite filipino foods. The first food I bake is a chocolate cake, even though it's not perfect, it's still taste good. I feel happy when I learn new things. What about you?

I learned to bake really young. I made cakes and things in my Easy-bake oven. From there I think I baked brownies and chocolate chip cookies before moving on to more complicated things. My first meal, I thing was spaghetti. Not sure as that was a long long time ago.

the first thing I learned how to cook was rice, then came frying like hotdogs, eggs and some other things that can be fried. i haven't baked though as we don't have oven.

Hi vycess, I honestly don't remember what I learned first. I guess it was cooking rice? Well, if we are talking about cakes here, the first cake that I learned to make is the "Oreo cream cake". You just layer a biscuit and a creamer and oreo crumbles and make the layering twice then you just put it in a freezer and wait for it to freeze. And yes, put condensed milk to make it sweet. You add that to the layer too. It is yummy

Hello vycess. My first dish was to be a fruit pie. I was about eleven years old and was eager to learn to cook. I was living with an aunt and she gave me the instruction for the pie crust. She then went to visit the neighbors. I got the shorting and baking powder mixed up. any way the flour didn't turn into pea size balls as pie crust should. So I had to start over. The pie did turn out pretty good..

The first recipe that I learned was "lady finger - a vegetable", eaten with bread. My mother was sick and she could not get up and cook, and I was very young, maybe 9 years old. Then she directed me, and I cooked it all.. Though it was not at all even close to the taste that my mom use to make but everyone at with a smile and congratulated me!! I felt so proud and good!! Now its my signature dish, because I have mastered it over the years.. now I am married and it has become my husband's favorite. he use to never eat it when his mother use to cook, but mine he is just so in love with it! :) - so all thanks to my family for appreciating me that day!
