I'm not one of those people who gags and makes a fuss when I don't like something, as a general rule, I can eat things I don't like. And my few dislikes are:

Corn meal. Corn bread, tamales, sckanze, polenta. I love, and I do mean love, corn, but for some reason am not crazy about corn bread/mush/grits in its many forms. Again, I can eat it, just don't like it.

Milk. Again, I like every form of milk I've ever had, just not a glass of milk. Go figger. Seriously, when I was a child my friends' mothers and mother's friends would give me no end of grief because I simply didn't want to drink milk, and could live forever without breakfast cereal. They'd tell me I'd better drink my milk or I wouldn't grow strong and tall. At 55 I'm 5'9" and show absolutely no signs of bone loss.

There are a few things I don't care for in certain preparations, it is usually a texture thing. But very little that I dislike actively.
I am with you there. I use milk in cooking and even eat cereal, the milk left in the bowl just goes down the drain. I rarely buy milk anymore, I keep powdered around for cooking. I just got tired of throwing away spoiled milk.

Lately I'm having to avoid eating sweet peppers. Even with their skins burnt off. Thankfully, I can eat chillies.

Someone back up the thread said how their friend can't tolerate onion. It is fact some people can't, or eat garlic. Being intolerant to onion must be a severe setback to cooking, but I'm afraid that's life. We do have some food intolerances far worse than things like tripe.

Patty, do you like yogurt? I've been eating cereal with flavored yogurt for years, and although one of my favorite foods is milk, I really enjoy cereal with yogurt.
Also, for those who only use milk for cooking, I've found half pints of boxed
whole milk that is wonderful to keep on hand for cooking, and tastes like ordinary milk, and nothing like canned milk. Unopened, it doesn't need to be refrigerated.

Yea, the funny thing is I do like yogurt. I never thought to put in on dry cereal.
I have never seen boxed milk that is not refrigerated. I will have to look for that. Thanks.

You're welcome patty. By the way, I find the box milk at our local Dollar Tree, but I've also seen it in the grocery.
Here's a link that may be useful.
Bulk Half-Pint Lil' Milk Boxes, Vitamin D Whole Milk at DollarTree.com

- Liver.
- Tofu (even though I eat many meatless meals throughout the week)
- eggs - they must be smothered in cheese, soy sauce, hollandaise, or mayo as in egg salad, and never the least bit runny for me to even consider eating them and they are still not enjoyable

I think green bell peppers ruin anything they touch.

I'm not fond of peaches and tangerines but I would eat them in a pinch. It's funny what you will eat after one of those survivalist courses.

I dislike Pizza. It doesn't really float my boat.
