The Cook Next Door Meme

I have been tagged byAna at the Pumpkin Pie Bungalow for a meme... I think these are cool I am honored to be recipent of this one..

without further waiting.....

What's your first memory of baking/cooking on your own?
I didnt acctually cook on my own till I was about 12 years old, I am the oldest of 4 kids and my youngest sister was hungry one day and the only thing I could figure out how to cook was a grilled chease sandwich... at that time she called a grouchy sandwich (she was 6)
Who had the most influence on your cooking?
My Gurl, I did some cooking as a kid, my mom made sure I took home ec. I was the only boy in the class.. (thanks mom) But is was my soul mate that watered the seed to my foodieness,, I no longer eat store bought barritoes and beer for lunch.
Do you have an old photo as "evidence" of an early exposure to the culinary world?
Sorry but no.
Mageiricophobia - do you suffer from any cooking phobia, a dish that makes your palms sweat?
Fish.. my family was a beef family we didnt eat much fish... plus when i was a kid I was told samonella was from samon.. so fish has scared me since then

I heart my blender... see several posts ago.. biggest letdown was the garlic press... sure it works fine but not too easy to clean ... fork works just as well
