What were some of the dishes you made when you were first learning to cook? Or how about right before you "properly" learned to cook? Any particular things you were super proud of, or any epic failures?
I remember I made a lot of classic American food like meatloaf, shepherd's pie, lasagna, casserole and chili (even though I'm Chinese). In retrospect they were quite complicated for a beginner, especially considering a lot of them also required multiple steps, sides, etc.
How about you?
