    In my world, mushrooms or spinach in an enchilada are an abomination. I like enchiladas. I like spinach. I like mushrooms. I'm even vegetarian. But major no to spinach or mushroom enchiladas. Ick.

    Over cooked meat.

    Under cooked baked goods. Been eating undercooked cooked cookies and brownies all my life and haven’t gotten salmonella yet.

    People who tell themselves that rice cakes are good are kidding themselves.

    Ooh. I discovered Quaker rice crisps, sour cream and onion flavor, apple cinnamon, and caramel. Tiny, textured, and, yes, with flavor. It's a nice little break-time treat.

    I don't know about elsewhere, but I've seen it quite commonly on menus of Mexican restaurants as part of their vegetarian or vegan options, in more than one part of the US.

    Oddly, I did have huitlacoche (a.k.a. corn smut) in a Mexican dish on one occasion, and that was fine. It's a fungus, but has a somewhat different flavor profile than normal mushrooms.

    Huitlachoche, BTW, is something that had sounded pretty yucky to me beforehand, having seen it growing on garden corn in my youth. It ain't pretty, at least per my definition. But I made myself order it, despite trepidation, because I like to try things. It was actually pretty good. I'd eat it again.

    On corn, it looks like this:

    I live for the apple cinnamon rice crisps but also just discovered Pirate's Booty (or the Trader Joe's version...WHEN THE LINE IS SHORT ENOUGH TO GET IN BECAUSE I HAVE NO PATIENCE FOR WAITING IN LINES). (Yes, I feel very strongly about waiting in lines. And don't get me started on Menchie's last night. :))

    Raw meat smells mouth-wateringly delicious.
    Not that I'd ever actually eat it like that, but it smells so good.

    OMG, that's so disgusting I'm listening to it instead of watching him eat it! I wear gloves and don't cook most meat because I can't handle touching raw meat, especially fatty meat. I make faces the whole time I make it and try to only touch it with my pointy finger and thumb. Weird quirk, I know, I wish it was easier for me!

    Actual baked goods are overrated. Under-cooked is the way to go. TBH i won't eat them if they are finished :)

    The only good cake is cheesecake. The only good pie is pumpkin pie. The only exception to these rules are pumpkin cheesecake.
