Is it just me, or...

...do red bell peppers smell a little like gasoline when YOU cut them up? Am I weird all in my own corner? Anyone is free to join me.





BTW, feel free to add your own "Is it just me..." query. Make note of the topic in the "Title" line, though. Kinda like using your car's signal when making a turn.

Is it just me, or does the smell of lard melting in a pan make everyone else nauseous, too?

I don't know about the peppers, because I don't like hot things and a little cayenne is as far as I'll go.

It's just you

Bell peppers aren't hot. They have a Scoville rating of 0.

Red bell peppers are considered "sweet" peppers, they aren't hot. The same with orange, yellow and green bell peppers.
