I grew up watching my mom cook. Now, my mom is one of those people who can't actually follow a recipe - she always ALWAYS modifies things to her own tastes, and usually makes them better. Both my brother and I have developed a love of food through my mom. While I am just a chef-for-fun, my brother is actually studying to get his culinary arts degree! I'm proud to say I've taught him a thing or two about cooking along the way... and I'm even more proud that now he's turned around and started teaching me things.
