I baked Christmas cookies with my mom in middle and high school. Does that count as cooking?

The first thing I cooked was an egg in the brand new micro wave, before they had glass fronts. Yeah it was a big mess. That egg exploded and filled most of the holes in the screen.

I was about 12 when I cooked Thanksgiving dinner mostly by myself, because my Grandmother was sick. I had been helping her since I was tall enough to reach the stove on a step stool.

I'm a little surprised by the number of people that didn't start cooking until college or later. I started baking cookies, making soup, eggs, hot dogs, burgers, etc when I was 7, it's a skill that everyone needs, man or woman.

Around age 15 or a bit more I lived with my aunt, she taught me how to cook and so did my cousin, so I know some basic cooking.

I volunteer at a local youth center for kids aged 8-18. Once a month I do a program called Food for Thought, I help the kids prepare an easy, nutritious and economical meal. They do the work as I supervise. The kids love it and they even eat foods they otherwise wouldn't because they helped make it.

If any of you are pre-teens, or teens, I highly suggest spending some time in the kitchen and learning how to cook before you go off for college, or wherever. I know it might seem like a chore, but cooking is an important lifelong skill. You'll always need to eat. I know a lot of guys think that cooking is women's work, but women do like when guys cook.

If a guy wants to eat bad enough, he's gonna have to learn to make his own food. Same with doing his own laundry and dishes.

Not only do girls like guys that cook, but there won't always be a woman around to do the cooking for you. Or she may be a HORRIBLE cook! Either way, it's best for everyone to learn to cook!

First step was learning how to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Then came the scrambled eggs. I think I was five or so.

I was cooking ramen (we pronounced it ramyun) when I was about 7 or 8. I'm just now starting to teach my newly 9 year old son how to cook--hot dogs, then on to ramen!

Depends on how you define "cooking". Simple stuff (eggs and the like) I started learning as a kid. More complicated things, like full meals (especially cooking meat), I still can't do. I find it nearly impossible to do several things at once without failing hard at all of them, plus I have a lot of chronic pain in my feet. so my significant other does most of the cooking.

While in the military for 20+ years, never needed to cook. When I got married, my husband did the cooking. Then a few years ago, I started my own business and now work at home, so my husband expects me to cook during the week. He still cooks on weekends. Thank the gods for recipe sites on the internet!

The rule in my house was if your shoulders are higher than the stove you can cook. Before that it's cutting veggies with a butter knife or mixing the batter.

I said never, because I don't think boiled water for ramen noodles, or breaking up simmering ground beef so mom doesn't have to get off the couch counts. Unless you mean throwing an egg or bacon in a pan. I have done that. But I feel like I've never REALLY cooked.

21 years old and mother still thinks I'm not old enough to be near the stove for prolonged periods of time. -_-

I work in a lab and come in contact with instruments that are 300 degrees C daily as well as carcinogenic chemicals like lead. But I'm not old enough to fry some vegetables.

I always baked with my mother before I was five, "helping" her make things like sugar cookies. Now, I bake all kinds of goodies on my own, and they turn out great. I think I'm one of the few that can honestly say that my baking is better than my mother's (she has attested to this in front of many others, so it's not offensive to her).
