What you are describing is definitely not unheard of. Some people have reported heightened sensitivities to seemingly unrelated foods after having cut out a specific type of food - wheat, dairy, eggs, etc.
As any-one who's tried to cook them will know, kidneys smell pretty awful. In deference to the preferences of my fiance, I've tried to reduce the urine smell by soaking them (as lots of recipes recommend) and then discarding the liquid before... (more)

I purchased half a pastured pig this summer for an amazing price, and they threw in some offal as a bonus...I've never cooked pork offal and could use some tips from all you savvy seasoned pork offal eaters out there...I have a large liver, a... (more)
Umm... ok. Here you go! To me, pork offal isn't too far off from beef in flavour so you can definitely blend with beef products if you wanted. Liver! Grind up and add to meatballs or burgers. Fried with onions and bacon - for a milder flavour you... (more)

When my mother has to go to the toilet, she panics. She can't hold it, she has to go immediately or she, well ... she pees. It's not a disaster, but she often has to change plans to make sure she doesn't have to go to the toilet in the wild. I... (more)
