which one do you like your food to be. i love spicy food all the way. now it's hard to make everything spicy with a 3 year old in the house so i usually have to spice my food after i take her portion out. not sure how to get her used to spicy food. which do you like and does the rest of your family eat everything the same way?

I would much rather have spicy food. the hotter the taste, the better I like it. It gives me heartburn but I love it. I have a hard time cooking very spicy foods because my husband and my daughter do not care for it very much. I usually have to spice my food up or add peppers to it after I cook it and dip my own out also. I always add some kind of hot sauce, peppers or something to everything I eat. It makes my food taste much better, I think.

Like you, I love spicy food. Unfortunately, too much spicy food had left me with a sensitive stomach. Now, even if I have a little spicy food. I would need to go to the bathroom. I hate that feeling. I wish I could enjoy spicy food again.

I LOVE hot spicy foods!! The hotter the better!! My uhsband is a real weinie so I don't usually make things spicky, I just add ot sauce to my own plate =) My son loves spicy foods though and he is only two!! I ate a ton of hot things when I was pregnant with him though so maybe that has something to do with it =)

I usually like mild and occasionally medium. I don't like really spicy/hot food though.

I don't like spicy food except for spicy cheese. My husband and son both like spicy food. So I make mine different than I do their's.

At our house, most like a mild flavor, but to just give things a kick, I add cumin to most meats and such. It adds alot of flavor to just about anything and gives a smoky richness to meats. I have found that instead of making foods to my liking, if I use cumin I am still happy with the flavor and so is everyone else

Heya, I like spicy food too.. My daughter is three also but I have slowly accustomed her to spices and she can eat some pretty hot curries now. In fact we had curry at a friends place recently and they said to me 'it is pretty bitey so you may wanna make your daughter a sandwich', I tasted in and couldn't even taste the spice and so I said try my daughter on it and if she doesn't like it I will make her something. She LOVED it and went back for thirds!! I gradually introduced her to spices such as cummin and curry powder, things that have a little bite but not alot. Tanika.
