Do you remember what the first dish you prepared from a recipe was?

A friend's daughter asked me for a foolproof recipe as she's taken an interest in cooking and her Mom doesn't cook. I gave her a few and then she asked me what the first dish I made from a recipe was.

I didn't even have to think about it as it was a defining moment for me (I was 7 years old)...it was a recipe from the back of a Jello box where you stirred in fruit and topped with Cool Whip. Ok, definitely not rocket science but to think I was able to make something my family hadn't eaten before was so exciting for me. Prior to that I'd made bacon and eggs, toast and of course sandwiches. No recipes required!!

What about you? Do you remember the first dish you prepared from a recipe?
