I'm with picky eaters. Also those who insist that something is only right if it is prepared the way THEY fix it.

The cinnamon in "spaghetti sauce", by the way, is not supposed to taste like Italian spaghetti sauce. It is a Greek dish, known variously throughout the U.S. as "Greek Spaghetti", "Greek Chili", or "Cincinatti Chili". It isn't supposed to taste of old Italy or even New York Italian-American. It's just that English speakers mostly cannot imagine being able to read Greek, so depending on where they settled, Greek restauranteurs named it whatever the local market would bear.

I guess that would make my peeve people who won't approach food with somewhat an open mind. If you don't like it, fine, but don't insist that your tastebuds are the only ones in the world that count.

Awesome cream cheese. Sometimes I eat it straight up.
I seem to remember a good family time movie, too...

I'll try anything that doesn't smell gross and is made of food.

But, I'm one of those people who will pick canned/overcooked peas out of what I'm eating. They taste so yucky they will spoil the whole mouthful for me.

This is merely a subjective thread. Just a bit of good natured fun. As was stated in the first post, recipes vary. Its all good.

Artificial whipped cream (and artificial coffee creamers in restaurants). I hate that stuff. Fake bacon bits on a ceasar salad.

I hate all of those too. That's why I learned to enjoy black coffee

This weekend we went out for supper. My dessert had some white whipped stuff on the plate. I tasted a small amount and it was sweet, but had no other flavour.

I asked the waiter what it was, "Whipped cream." Are you sure? It's sweet, but there's no cream flavour. "Oh, it's artificial."

i am with you on this one. at least take a bite, if you don't like it, just put aside on the plate. on the other hand , i don't like , when a guest, for people to pile anything on my plate, then if i don't like it is obvious.
