I was pretty easy as a kid, really liked most foods, and sometimes would "fake" disliking foods because my little sister was a very, very, very fussy eater (she grew out of it) and got lots of attention because of it. The few things I disliked were boiled cruciferous vegetables: cauliflower, cabbage. Fish and shellfish (now that I'm older I know that there was a reason for it -- honestly, the stuff we were fed was, well, pretty ****ed bad), and blue cheese. Now I love them all, but then they are mostly better than what we could get when I was young.

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.

I pretty much hated everything as a child except peanut butter, and I'm not much better now. One thing that comes to mind is pancake syrup. I couldn't bear it as a child and ate my pancakes dry but now I enjoy it.
