I love sweets like everyone else, but sometimes you can bite into a cake where the icing is so sweet its hard to eat. Just like the filling of a commercial "SuzyQ" sandwich. Great flavor together with the chocolate, but wow..the filling is way to sweet.

I can't stomach blue cheese of any variety. And I'm also against liver but I love foie gras. I'm also not big on sweets, esp. in the morning. Occasionally I will get a craving for cake, but no icing, thank you. And scallops are a sad story, I love them but I'm allerigic. I can eat all kinds of other shellfish but scallops give me a horrible reaction.

Katy - have you tried "dry pack" scallops? Because if not, it's extremely likely you could be allergic to the solution that all other scallops are steeped in. Any scallops sold that aren't clearly marked "DRY PACK" are soaked in a chemical solution meant to 1) keep them "white" & thus prolong their marketability, & 2) increase their weight, which means you're paying for all that chemical solution they've soaked up, which just leaches out into the pan when you cook them. Both sad & scary.

I never buy scallops unless they're marked "DRY PACK". Yes, they're more expensive, but I'm not consuming chemicals & am paying for the actual "meat", not added water solution.

Shellfish allergies are fairly common and not to be trifled with. In my opinion, it is more likely you are allergic to the scallops than the solution that is added to them. I would not risk using yourself as a guinea pig with dry scallops.

Of course, you should have yourself tested by an allergist to get to the truth.

roasted garlic

may be odd since I raise garlic....but I really don't care for the flavor and find the texture disgusting..

give me my garlic raw or cooked into a dish or with vegetable, but forget roasting it for me


and beets don't even make it on this list, I don't even want to like them..

I agree with you Andy, but only made mention of this possibility because the poster said that it's only scallops that give her a reaction - no other shellfish - which is unusual. Normally, shellfish-specific reactions concern shrimp, not mollusks. And if the poster can eat clams, oysters, crab, shrimp, & lobster without a problem, it might be worth it to ask her doctor if it could be the chemical solution added to scallops that she's sensitive too. I certainly wouldn't want her to just try it on my say-so.

I really wish I liked sushi - it seems like such an "in" thing. But I just don't. Blech. Does anybody really like it? Or do they just pretend to like it?
