    I shudder just thinking about the macaroni and tomato casserole my mom used to make. Macaroni and cheese= good. Tomatoes= good. Put them together and you make me want to hurl!

    Chicken and rice, and baked beans. My mom is a pretty crappy cook, so her chicken was always dry. And I absolutely hate baked beans, but she would always try and force them on me. I thought (and still do think) they taste like puke lol

    Oh oh ugh my mom made this horrid Spanish rice that I loathed. And when I didn't finish she would put me on the timer ... And I had to eat it for breakfast if I let the time run out. She was kind of an evil genius.

    @Mrs. Yoyo: haha having to eat it for breakfast the next day?! That's cruel! I'll have to remember that one for my future children.

    Beef Stroganoff. I remember my brother and I throwing the noodles at the wall during one of their dinner parties!

    @MrsH: UGH, that was my mom's go-to recipe!

    I also hated homemade pizza for whatever reason - no clue why! I love it now.

    Wow, some of these dishes definitely sound...interesting, to put it politely, haha. I was totally spoiled because my mom is an amazing cook and I'm having trouble coming up with anything I don't like. My dad had a friend whose mom was such a bad cook that whenever he saw signs that said "just like mom makes it!" he would be like, "ew, why would anyone want that?" lol.

    Anything with mushrooms. They knew I HATED them but told me to suck it up or pick them out... I still hate mushrooms. I understand not catering to a picky child but never in my life have I like mushrooms. Why make it so darn difficult! Ugh...

    I hated the night my mom made tuna noodle casserole-the smell was disgusting and I refused to eat it

    Any form of Hamburger Helper. Gross. I also had to eat sandwiches with bread, mustard, and slimy packaged deli meat. Ugh. It took my DH a lot of work, but now I let him make me deli meat sandwiches with lots of toppings.

    @delight: That sounds awful!

    @Mrs. Yoyo: Haha... Spanish rice for breakfast sounds horrible!

    turkey a la king (they made it with canned peas, which are the same as barf IMO)
    Hamburger Helper was a close second... ugh.

    My mom really liked those Banana flavored moon pies, so she would get them every week and that would be our dessert in our lunches at school. I loath anything banana flavored now and am hard-pressed to eat actual bananas.

    Not really... But recently I made tuna noodle casserole the way my mom did (with annie's macaroni as the base) and discovered that it's not very good! I actually still like tuna noodle casserole, but my version uses regular pasta and feta cheese. And I never use the frozen peas my mom always added... I use kale or spinach, and also like to add onions and kalamata olives.

    hmmm they would make things that they would only eat themselves, but never made us eat anything we didn't want to. if anything, they always catered to our palate. we were spoiled when it came to food!

    My Mom is/was a fantastic cook, but she likes liver and onions, she'd make me my own dinner that night (it didn't happen often!)

    My Grandma on the other hand, oh gross, everything cooked to mush. I'd rather not eat when I'd stay at her house. She'd always cater to my cousins who grew up in a fastfood/processed food household so she'd make mac & cheese with cut up hotdogs and the thought would of it would and still does make me sick! Oh yeah she had a stock pile of Totino's frozen pizza, I think it was the hamburger topping one. Ew. I guess my Mom spoiled me with yummy fresh food

    For some reason I've had an aversion to hotdogs my entire life, I will get sick if I smell them. My Grandma made them all the time. I just started eating sausage these past few years...

    Boiled dinner - boiled ham, boiled potatoes, boiled carrots. I never understood boiling meat when there are so many better ways to cook it. Plus the veggies ended up tasting the same as the meat because they all boiled together. Ick.

    oh man hehe.

    my mom was and is a great cook so i can't think of anything off the top of my head at the moment!

    Overall, my mom was a pretty good cook, but she made split pea soup that I hated. One time I thought she had left so I dumped it down the garbage disposal...well, she hadn't left and heard me and was so sad, she looked like she would cry! Funnily enough, the last time I visited she made it and it was pretty tasty. Something about the mushy green must have made my kid palate hate it.
