Hubby & I have tried over and over again Mexican foods............for some reason we just do not care for any of them......could be color combinations and/or presentation....................its a shame becausee most of our friends really enjoy going to the various Mexican restaurants...........we now just pass............but at least we have given it several shots

Indian style curry, pancakes and waffles, cooked salmon, though I do like smoked salmon.

Liver and brussels sprouts are a given, they don't count as a lot of other folks don't like them either.

But wait, Trader Joe's has fresh frozen brussel sprouts called " True Belgian Brussels Sprouts". They're smaller and a little sweeter. Serve them warm but not overcooked (still bright green) with roasted pecan halves and a vinaigrette of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, basil, and a teensy red pepper flakes.

I would never question the palates of PF, Kayelle, and many others, as well as my own. We've all tried and failed to like them!

I think I've wasted more money trying to like Brussels Sprouts than any other food. Sounds tasty, I think I will try it with some shredded cabbage.

Snip, try a dash of grated nutmeg on your carrots.

I guess for me it is not really a dislike but, I really do not care about steak.

I would rather have a roast of beef than a steak.
I cut the cooked carriots into medallions. Make a white sauce with nutmeg and put the cooked carrots in it. Always a big hit with the "I hate carrots!" folks.

They are good glazed with a tablespoon of orange marmalade or real maple syrup and a knob of butter.

It only take a little to make a big flavor boost.

Oh please, don't spoil my carrots with sweet stuff. Steamed with a little bit of butter and I'm happy. You could boil 'em, as long as you don't overdo it.

Ok, butter and a little dill weed works just as well!
