I made my husband a treat last night to say goodbye for the week, and it turns out he doesn’t really like peanut butter, so the chocolate peanut butter cookies I made were a waste! 🙂
How long did it take you to understand your S.O.’s likes and dislikes a little better? [attachment=110136,2211]

Mr. Calioc is a very picky eater, but I’ve learned pretty quickly because I cook almost 4 nights a week. I’ve also learned that if the ingredients are difficult for him to pick out, then he doesn’t know the difference. For example, he swears he hates sour cream, yet he loves my beef stroganoff! The only thing I know I’ll never get him to eat is sushi — my favorite!

I have been with my man for 7 years, and I am still learning the intricacies of the male brain. He claims one day he has always liked this… when I remember he has liked that.
You’ll learn. I am beginning to think it takes a lifetime. Which is what we have!
I just ask… vaguely… ‘honey, what are your thoughts on such-&-such’ and I go from there for cooking new items…

I once made artichoke dip (one our most favorite things to eat) and I assumed he liked it. I have asked him numerous times since then if he would like me to make it again. He must’ve managed to change the subject or suggest other things. Finally, one day after asking him again if I should make it, he ‘fessed up and told me he really didn’t like it all that much. I was so surprised! His opinion on artichoke dip hadn’t changed, he just didn’t like mine! I was a little upset, especially because I loved the dip.

Haha, I guess I’m lucky, my F eats anything and everything whether or not it’s good. When we first started dating I called him "my little vaccuum". Although sometimes I wonder if what I’m making is actually good, or just good to him.
And Mrs Avacado I must say if the peanut butter cookies look anything like the picture above, I’ll give you my address and you can mail them to me… those are making me drool!

I’m pretty lucky because my hubs eats pretty much anything. He’s more of the cook, so when I do cook he usually eats it since it’s like a treat. I’m more of the baker in the house and as long as I’m always switching things up he always happily gobbles the desserts as fast as I make them. It’s just about 6 years since we’ve been together and I think I got all his likes and dislikes figured out by now.

My FI won’t eat raw tomatoes! Salsa-good, marinara sauce-good, but no raw tomatoes! He also hates fish and seafood (which bums me out because I LOVE sushi!). It can be challenging cooking for a picky eater. But he’s so sweet, sometimes he’ll cook me a salmon fillet even though he’s not eating it. *sigh!* ô¿ò

My FI is willing to eat anything…except peanut butter. He even tried my peanut butter cookies and chocolate cookies with PB frosting; nearly threw up both times. I heart peanut butter, he can’t stand the smell. Oh well, I’ll just eat it at work!

sweet husband eats just about anything i cook, but when he really doesn’t like something, it’s obvious. like tomato products. honestly, who doesn’t like red pasta sauce? sigh.
but peanut butter? peanut butter is delicious. does he like nutella? maybe your chocolate pb cookies can become chocolate nutella cookies.

We’re still learning the other’s likes and dislikes food wise even after almost 6 years together. Now that we’re settling down, I cook more and I like to cook my favorite foods from my childhood which don’t jive with what his mom used to make. We’re learning…but not liking peanut butter!? That might be a deal breaker! 😉

My husband love peanut butter! He makes a PB&J for lunch most days. He doesn’t have them most sophisticated taste in food. I always try to get him to try new things and occasionally it works. I have gotten him to see sushi, thai, greek, and indian food are yummy! And pssst… that putanesca sauce I made the other day had anchovies in it. The horror!

Luckily our "pickies" are the usually same — we both HATE green peppers and peaches, for instance. The only one that ever caught me by surprise (and secretly broke my heart a little) was mushrooms. He doesn’t like the texture of mushrooms. So.Sad. And to discover it after making him a pasta dish with mushrooms made it even sadder. The good news? He doesn’t mind the flavor, just hates the texture. So the meal was appreciated, and I got all the extra mushrooms he picked out. Win-win!

i wonder if this counts…
FH has a blue car. FH has a ton of blue shirts and sweaters and yada yada yada BLUE all over his closet. even the gels, shampoo, shaver, toothpaste and lotion in his bathroom are BLUE. so NATURALLY, i assumed FH’s fave color was blue… wouldn’t you?? so when we had our first xmas together, i wrapped his presents (i’m a multi-gifter) in a blue & white theme. and all his presents were different shades of blue… blue polo shirt, blue shower radio, blue blah blah blah. and so every gift-giving occasion, i wrapped his presents in something blue and gave him something blue. it wasn’t until our SECOND xmas together that he asked, "why do you always wrap my gifts in blue and always give me blue stuff?" sigh.
well, i responded with, "well, cause it’s your favorite color! duh!" and to which FH replied… "uh… no it’s not!" and i of course responded, "YEAH IT IS!" and back and forth we went. turns out… his favorite color is GREEN!
