I Don't Like Candy Corn...

I was watching TV this morning with my four year old and I look up to see a Moose in a Mummy costume singing a Halloween kids Song "I don't like candy corn, no I don't like candy corn" . Let me tell Mr. Moose A. Moose I agree with you a 110% Yuck! candy corn looks cool, and it's great to decorate with but that's about it in my book. The only exception and the only way I can stomach these things is mixed in a bowl with dry roasted salted peanuts 80% peanuts 20% corn then you kind of have that nut roll flavor. A friend came over one day and I had been cooking and he noticed my dog under the kitchen table licking himself and he kinda laughed, I told him to ignore the dog I was decorating a Halloween cake with some candy corn and some fell on the floor and the dog ate them... he's trying to get the taste out of his mouth!
I don't just pick on candy corn as a holiday item I don't like. I don't like Chestnuts roasted over an open fire, great song but taste gross. Apple Salad - Ok I love apples, I love nuts. but when Gramma mixes mayonnaise, nuts, apples, cool whip and mini marshmallows together and calls it yummy.. uh uh... No way!
Other than that the sky's the limit as to what I will eat or cook during the holly dazed season. Ok there is my wife's families traditional spiced Christmas cookie recipe they make every year... EVERY year... I asked them if they would mind if I tried revamping (make edible) the recipe so that non blood relatives might be able to eat them without gagging... well, I guess the recipe will stay the same because I never ever want to see or hear the sight and sound of an old lady hyperventilating and clutching her chest while calling me the spawn of Satan while trying to boot me out of my own kitchen again. Some people just hate change...
"No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even
at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by
generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the
wisdom of cookbook writers."
