A: "What did you do when hanging out with your friends?"
This is okay, but a little unnatural. 'While' would sound better: "What did you do while hanging out with your friends?"

Shortening it to "what did you do with your friends?" would sound even more natural (because 'hanging out with friends' is just 'being with friends', so '..while hanging out' is implied). 놀았어요 might not be explicitly translated in this shorter version, but the overall meaning of 친구들이랑 뭐하고 놀았어요 is still there.

A: "I'm very interested in cooking meals for my children that we can enjoy."

"Today I'm requesting cooking by family " - does not make sense to me, I'm not sure what you were trying to say. Maybe you were trying to say "Today I am cooking what was requested by my family, Tuna Don!"

"I prefer a grated tasty topping on top or on the side"
