Does this describe you? Are you a picky eater? Due to nose issues, i really don't like to eat because i can't always taste my food. I do eat and there are some meals that i enjoy but over all, i really don't like to eat. I do like dessert tho and given the choice, i would prolly take dessert over the main course depending what both are...how about you?

Bittersweet Chocolate Cream Pie Who can resist a cream pie? They're rich and yummy and can be made in no time. Of course, the bittersweet chocolate pudding can also be enjoyed all by itself -- kids love it. But go the extra mile and you won't be sorry! Credit: Rori Trovato Servings: 6 to 8 Ingredients: Cream pie 1 (9-inch) piecrust, cooked and cooled completely 1/2 cup cocoa powder, plus additional for garnish 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar 2 cups whole milk 6 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine or grated 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup powdered sugar Whipped cream 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract Directions: For the cream pie: In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa, flour and sugar. Slowly whisk in about 1/4 cup of the milk to form a paste. Slowly add the remaining milk. Transfer the mixture to a large saucepan and slowly bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate and vanilla. Stir until the chocolate has melted completely and the mixture is smooth. Pour into piecrust. Cover the top with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours until cold and set. For the whipped cream: Whip the heavy cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, add the sugar and the vanilla, and whip just until stiff peaks form. Remove the plastic wrap from the pie and swirl the cream on top. Sprinkle with cocoa and serve.

What a shame that you can't feel the flavour of food. For me I just can't change the order of meal. I have to eat first the soup, then the main dish and then the dessert. I know people that manage to eat soup as the last part of the meal. I just can't think of doing that.
