Meme, Myself, and I

Coincidentally enough, Marvin of Burnt Lumpia tagged me for another meme. I thought instead of putting this off, I should just answer it now to make this "meme day." :) I'll make this short so my precious recipes won't be too invisible :p
What were you cooking/baking 10 years ago? I was just 15-16 years old then, and not at all very interested in food. I would be graduating from high school and content to eat cafeteria pasta day after day.
What were you cooking/baking one year ago? This would be about the time I'm making chocolate chip cookies. That's it. Oh, and maybe fusilli.

Five snacks you enjoy: 1. Kettle's Brand chips (Salt and Black Pepper or Honey Dijon), 2. French fries with a strawberry shake (preferably McDonald's), 3. Burger of any sort, 4. Spicy noodles, 5. Cake. I'm hungry now.

Five recipes you know by heart: 1. Pâté a choux and Crème Pâtissiere, 2. Broccoli and Sun-Dried Tomato Fusilli, 3. Stuffed Mushrooms, 4. Pesto, and 5. Katuson.

Five culinary luxuries you would indulge in if you were a millionaire:
1. Eat my way through Italy.
2. Eat my way through France.
3. Renovate my kitchen (preferably taking up the living room, haha)
4. Set up a vast garden.
5. Own a deli.

Five foods you love to cook/bake:
1. Cake. Nothing like it. (Plus all the decorations that go with it)
2. Pies.
3. Making fresh pasta.
4. Spicy Chinese food.
5. Roasts and grilled meats.

Five foods you cannot/will not eat:
1. I can eat raw fish (and it's okay), but I am sensitive to it and the reaction is very unpleasant. I'd rather not.
2. Feet of any animal. Those toes and tendons often ick me out.
3. Fresh coconut. Hate it.
4. Insects
5. Can't think of much more. Probably some organ meat.

Five favorite culinary toys:
1. Spatula
2. Pastry bag
3. Vegetable peeler
4. Electric mixer
5. Tart pan

Five dishes on your "last meal" menu:
1. Kung Pao Chicken
2. Tiramisu
3. Pork chops
4. Tempura
5. A marvelous sundae/soda fountain treat. I don't care, it's my last meal.

Five happy food memories:
1. Making the silk handkerchief pasta for the first time
2. Making classic fondant for the first time
3. Eating the Nanking Beef (Crispy Beef strips in Spicy Sauce) for the first time
4. Throwing an all-dessert party for my friends
5. Cooking a birthday feast for my mom.

I'm tagging the people I've tagged below, but as always, of course there's no obligation nor hard feelings if you don't. :)
