I want to say around 10 - 12. I received Betty Crocker's New Boys and Girls cookbook from my aunt for Christmas and that helped get me started. I still have that book. My favorite recipe is for Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I can't remember how old I was that time. But I started cooking when I was still in elementary, my grandma loves to cook so she thought me some of her recipes at the very young age.

Probably when I was 9 or 10. I first learned how to make scramble eggs which went great with toast.

I've helped my mom around the kitchen since I was about 11 or 12. But I didn't start cooking all my meals until I was in college.
