I'm still wrestling with Brussels sprouts. I've had them fresh from the garden, cooked until barely tender and all other manner of ways, but still haven't been able to warm up to them.
Ah man. We just had Brussels Sprouts last night, I LOVE those things! We cut them in half and saute them with pancetta and golden rasins (we've used dried cherries too). I can't get enough of those sprouts, I bought a big ol bag of them the other day.
Here's the recipe, we leave out the currants and pine nuts. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/g...ipe/index.html
I used to not like onion, tomato, spinach, pickles, any cheese but american, non-scrambled eggs.
There are more things I dislike now and liked as a kid, i.e. candy, sweet syrupy fruit drinks....pretty much anything sweet. Once a month I'll eat something sweet for dessert, other than that it's cheese and crackers or a pickle.
