Try roasting your carrots on a flat pan (spray with a little oil) at 450-500 degrees in the oven for 15-20 minutes...that should take away the bitterness...brings out the sweetness.

All my life I've strongly detested doughnuts and pancakes *blech*
.....but I waffles and french toast...love love love 'em.
Go figure.

For me it is oysters, mussels, snails and clams (though I can have clams cut up fine in a chowder). It isn't the smell. I can cook them all no problem for DH and when I was working. It is the fact I gag. I can eat Tuna and Salmon sashimi and love it but not as sushi - the fish and rice create that same gag feeling.

Caramel is another thing. I used to love it but now just don't care for it.

By the way, Snip, big hugs and welcome back!

Lobster, coffee, and cilantro dislike all 3 of them!

Thanks for the tips guys :) It's not just the smell of chicken that puts me of, it's the taste too. I've tried killing it with curry, eating KFC (I order mash and gravy when Hubby wants a KFC fix lol!), Stirfry etc etc but nothing hides the taste. Think I'll just go without.

As for carrots, I've tried roasting, sweetening, adding them to stews and once again the taste just gets me. I'll eat them since it beats chicken.

I also don't eat bananas unless cooked. Love banana bread and milkshake but a raw banana is safe from me unless I'm stuck in the bush and close to starvation lol!

I hate pumpkin. I hate pumpkin pie. But, a friend of mine makes pumpkin muffins that I like. I can't really say I love them though.

I also will eat pumpkin muffins (I use the recipe from the Bon Appetite cookbook series from the '80s). I skipped going to the pie making thing where I volunteer this week because it was pumpkin pie making week. I make pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving if my brother is coming, but otherwise, it isn't on the menu. I love winter squash. But pumpkin--well, the dogs like it.
