BEING A VEGTARIAN, I DO NOT EAT ALL VEGGIES, I HATE PEAS IN ANY FORM, HAVE NEVER EATEN MUSHROOMS, DO NOT EAT GREEN BEANS, I DO NOT LIKE ANY TYPE OF SAUCE AT ALL, HAVE NEVER EATEN THESES SINCE I WAS A KID AND STILL DON'T. I LOVE FRESH SALADES. CAN EAT THEM EVERYDAY. LOVE TO EAT MY VEGGIES RAW AS POSSIBLE.
Butter. I didn't like it as a kid, and still do not. I cannot stand the way fatty foods leave that oil slick in my mouth. I fully understand why the Environmental Protection Agency freaks out with oil spills. :)
I didn't care much for meat growing up. My folks always made veggies and bread available at meals, so I was happy. I've learned to love dark meat chicken, but the white meat is much to dry to choke down. Oh, and white sauce and gravy; never have learned to like those. Otherwise, I'll eat just about anything. Broccoli, brussel sprouts, beans,okra, asparagus...it is all good!
Never liked boiled asparagus, do like it fried. Never liked tripe because of the smell. Never liked pickled pigs feet but, do now. We ate just about everything growing up. Most everything was down home, poverty cooking. We call it soul food today. This was a good question
You should try asparagus as a substitute for avocado in a guacamole dip. Very tasty! That is, if you like guacamole to start with. :)
Large Lima Beans and Pig Brains with Scrambled Eggs. We didn't have a lot growning up and there are so many of us (8 girls, 2 boys) that we had to eat or go hungry. I was VERY skinny as a child. I cried through a many of dinners. I cook the Large Limas for my DH and DS but I make me something else. I do like cabbage now but it can't be cooked to death.
I was raised in rural Georgia on a farm. My grandmother had a big garden every summer. There wasn't much that I was picky about... I'd even eat the fried eggplant. Now, I live in Canada and have a husband that insists on buying pickled herring... can I say, "YUCK!"? I don't even like looking at it in the jar!
We raised a big garden when I was young and I ate a lot of eggplant that we raised. Don't eat it now but have a sister who still buys and eats it. Used to eat the meat off pickled pigs feet but can't now. Yuck on it and pickled herring.
Still hate liver. UCK. Also hated cheese until I was about 40. Still don't pick up a piece and eat it like most people. But will cook with it now.
I love liver and onions... sometimes I crave liver. I told my doc about it and he looked at my blood work and sure enough, I had low iron. He told me when I have those cravings, to feed them what I'm craving.
Love liver and onions. think I'll get some next trip at the store. Sounds so good. Even my kids love it.
One of our favs-try it with bacon also.
Great reading here - thanks to all for your comments
I agree. Really have enjoyed reading it all
I hated fish ... Today, I love!
A big hug!!
I can't remember not liking anything as a child. It is either because I was happy when there was something to eat or too long ago and my memories are failing . Now I don't like oysters at all and my husband made me try lamb brain. Yukky.
Oh my Lamb may be ok but BRAINS? I don't think so. When I was growing up my best friend always ate cow brain sandwiches. I was there once when her dad put them in a pan to fry then she made a sandwich. UGH I had to go home. LOL *4U
I hated, and still do, the three "B's" - broccoli, brussels & brinjals!!!! My mom also used to tell us that there were MANY hungry kids and that we were blessed to have food (I understand and agree)and we had to stay at the table til we were finished our food. We had a diningroom table with an extension and my brother and I used to sneak the veggies we didnt like into a packet and put it in the compartment under the extension. We got away with it til my Mum started SMELLING SOMETHING FUNNY and found our stash!!!
What are brinjals?
What a great idea...stashing the yucky food. ;) My husband did something similar. But instead of hiding it, he just slipped his food to the family dog. I don't ink my MIL figured that one out. :)
As a child we lived on a dairy farm and my grandmother lived with us. Mum used to help with the milking of the cows and my gran used to do the cooking. I hated cabbage & cauliflower but was made to eat them. Now I enjoy eating both. Marg
Having been bought up in London just after the war, I had to eat everything that was put in front of me. I did not like it then and I certainly would never eat it now - rice pudding. Just the thought of it turns my tummy over. Sarah
I hated veggies, especially brocolli and ate meat when I was a kid......now I love veggies and don't eat meat.....talk about a switch!!!!
as a child my mother would make liver and bacon, and I just hated it.... but now I love it... and the iron in it is good for you
My mouth is watering.
I love liver with apple and onions. This is the "Berlin recipe" for liver and it is so delicious but I'm the only one in the famialy...
Hated it then and still now!!
When I was a child I ate oatmeal but my dad used to say " Its good and it sticks to your ribs" Ick I thought picturing to grey globs hanging off my rib cage.LOL I eat it now.
Mushrooms and Spinach - have grown to love Mushrooms, but will never eat a serving of cooked Spinach on a plate. I'll eat it raw in salads and in a quiche - that way I can't taste it!
Won't ever eat any offal - and I hate Oysters too!
Isn't it funny how our taste buds alter as we mature! Love and blessings Chris
Oh my that looks delishous. Did you make them? Where did you get the receipe? Yummy now I am quite hungry...
Yep our taste buds do change. I never liked soup beans of any kind but love them all now. Wish I could give you tons of flowers for that picture.
this looks good! Receipe?
Hi Gals, No I didn't make these, but the recipe is below. It's from the internet. Here is Australia I use puff or filo pastry. I believe in America you can use Pillsbury rolled pie crusts. You will need 2 packages as this recipe makes 24 little mini quiches and a bit left over for another small container. Good luck with it. Love and blessings Chris
Makes two quiches or 24 mini plus leftover filling.
1 package Pillsbury rolled pie crusts (2 crusts)
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup low-calorie mayo
2 tbsp. self-rising flour
1 1/4 cups skim milk
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, grated
1 large onion, chopped
16 oz. bag frozen chopped spinach, thawed and excess water squeezed off
salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unroll each pie crust, and press each evenly into a glass 9.5-inch pie plate. Set aside.
Mix together the eggs, mayo, flour, milk, cheese, and onion. Add the spinach, and mix well. (Add a little more milk if the consistency is too thick. It should be a little runny.) Add salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste.
Pour half of the mixture into each pie crust. Roll the edges of the pie crust down to the edge of the quiche mixture and press into place. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
(When making the mini quiches use just enough pasty to place in each muffin case and just pour in filling to nearly the top. )
mini quiches. I'll put the recipe in Personal for you, there isn't enough space to put it now here. Love Chris
Man do I love QUICHE! I can almost taste them they look so good.
Where's the tissues, I need to wipe the drool of my keyboard. LOL!!!!
YOU'RE A DAG!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE CHRIS
Lovin reading all this. Thought it would be fun to see likes and dislikes of cuties. Giving everyone a *
I now like broccoli. My Mom never made many veggies so I thought I wouldn't like any. I eat cauliflower now too and spinach raw or in a cream sauce. I can't stand celery, pick it out of everything. When I was a teen I had eaten a raw carrot then got the flu and have not eaten raw carrots since but will eat them cooked.
I hated macaroni and cheese, and olives, now I love them both, but I don't eat as much macaroni and cheese as I would like because it is so fattening and not much nutritional value.
Only veg I do not like is brussel sprouts, just the smell puts me off....
We grew up poor so Mom always made canned soup with water .When she got sick with that c disease we had baby sitters who made soup with milk .I was sooooooooooo mad i refused to eat it and had to sit there all day which i did!!Never did eat it and i kept telling her we use water not milk !!!Still like water best lol carolyn
You mom was being smart, Most canned soup calls for water. I like being poor if thats the case. LOL I can't imagine chicken noodle and milk, yuck. And if you have a fever the milk might turn on your stomach.
As a kid I hated rspberries, my grandparents had a truck farm and when they were in season we got the leftovers. Raspberies at every meal was a bit much. It took me 15 years after I left home to actually even try them. they are okay now, not my favorite, but okay.
When I was a kid my grandmother would have me help her cut the okra, it used to stick me and there was no way I was eating that prickly stuff, I LOVE it now fried, guess I had to grow up to realize the stickers washed off, lol
The only thing I can remember just jamming my mouth shut and would not eat is CHEESE. I still don't like cheese, but will eat pizza cheese....that is the only thing I can remember. MMMM I love brussel sprouts.
I also love brussel sprouts - always reminds me of Christmas day.
I used spray butter to con my nephew into eating brussle sprouts. We were at the baseball field and he asked me if we could have them and I asked him if he had been Good Enought and he started begging for them. A lady turned around and asked me "What have you done to the kid!" LOL
My son won't touch cheese either. He says it smells bad and he gags on it. He is an adult now, and still won't touch the stuff.
As a child I don't eat salad and now I like it.
With the asparagus my mom tricked me out: Said it were black salsify (I eat them) and cuted away the head (which is the best at the asparagus!!!).
The brussel sprouts are still a no-go for me but I love every other sort of cabbage: cauliflower, broccoli, white/red cabbage...
I can't say because when we where kids we had no choice, "eat your spinach, eat your food because there is hundreds of kids outside this house that don't have any food" this was the words my mum and grandma use to say. Today I still have no preferences, eat anything. Love Marie
My dad was a lot like that. If you didn't eat what was on the table you didn't eat. I remember mom and dad loved oyster stew and I had to sit and feel sick watching them eat those things. I did get so I would eat the broth with loads of crackers to kill the taste. My sisters would take them out of the can raw and put salt on them and swallow them. UGH. when me and a girlfriend got an apt. together she made fried oysters. Begged me to try one so I did but it wouldn't go down as I couldn't chew it.
Same out our house Marie, we were dirt poor so we had to eat what was served even if we gagged on it. Thankfully we could only afford whatever was cheapest so we had lots of rice and potatoes & stews. There were many things I never knew about until I started working at 14. Bacon, cashews, mangos, fried onions, REAL cream, fillet steak, smoked oysters, olives, Vintage Cheese, quiche..... OH the culinary joys I discovered as a teenager! It's now wonder I LOVE food so much. LOL!!!

I dislike celery, but love the flavor it gives food..so I put it in big chunks and then fish them out!
I didn't like kielbasa when I was a kid, but love it now.
I love celery with peanut butter or cheese spread in it.
I disliked bacon avocados. Today I love it. Still, I hate rich cream. Can't stand it.
my mother used to cook tripe in white paarsley sayce weekly hated it then and thethough of it makes me want to throw up which i did when forced to eat it,,,yuk...soozie
OOOH yes, I forgot about the trip n white sauce, I also hated it until a school friend showed me how she ate raw tripe sprinkled with vinegar and like her, once I tried it that way I loved it, though I haven't eaten it since.
You also reminded me of Tapioca and what was the other similar one called?
We called one; frog's eggs, the other one; frog's eyes. Our dad used to make us eat them both and just the thought of them gags me.
Hugs n love, Meganne
about the Tapioca and, what was the other one called? We used to call one; frog's eggs and the other one; frog's eyes. iew! just the thought of them makes me gag! My Dad used to make us eat them!!!
Oh yes, I had also forgotten about tripe.
Meg I think you the other one is Sago.
I have to add my comment that tripe is the one constant that I still dont like. I will avoid chicory coffee :(
Oatmeal can't stand the texture then and now.
I agree about oatmeal. Can't stand the texture in my mouth...
I agree with you about oatmeal too, didnt like the look of it as a child and still dont,
I hated Brussels Sprouts then and still do. YUK!!!
Meganne my dear same to me!
In kindergarten we only need the smell and then we ran to the toilette :o( That is the only vegetable I don't eat (and I tried it again when I was grow up; still hate it). Greetings, Bettina
I would never eat mushroom when I was younger. When I was in my thirties, a friend coaxed me into trying one of her fried mushrooms. I almost ate them ALL they were so delicious! Now, I cook with mushrooms in a lot of different recipes.
I hated raw celery, as a child, and I STILL do!! I can tolerate it in a cooked recipe, like vegetable soup, but still do not care for it. I, also, agree with you on oysters stewed or fried!! Ugggh!!
Yummy fried mushroons breaded or just fried in butter.
Asparagus hated it when I was a kid now I love it. Isn't it strange how our tastes change.
hey you're back!!!!
I like to take 3 stalks of asparagus and wrap with a thin slice of bacon and cook till bacon is crispy, yummmmmmm!!!
