Ask @eatgrowthink:

What's the earliest memory you have of cooking?

I think my earliest cooking attempt that involved a stove or oven (as opposed to making a sandwich or reheating something) was when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. I tried to make French toast. The catch is that I had no clue about the ingredients and I had never seen my mom reference a recipe so I didn't even think to look for one. I knew it involved a pan and some bread and that it should be sweet so - without asking my mom for help or permission - I put bread, butter, and sugar into a pan and turned on the stove. I distinctly remember being afraid to eat the final result. Not because I thought it would taste bad but because I was legitimately concerned it would do me harm XD
