I was roasting some tomatoes with rosemary and thyme the other day and the smell of the herbs brought such a smile to my face that I felt like this guy: :D

So it got me wondering what kinds of kitchen smells really get you going? For me, roasting rosemary and thyme are accompanied by the smells of sauteeing onions and garlic, the combination of eggs, brown sugar and warm butter, and the smell of pimentón at the top of the list.

carmelized onions, roasted garlic, Thai curry, almost anything my Vietnamese mom makes and almost anything my Native dad makes. I especially love anything smokes including pimenton

The aroma of bacon or pancetta being rendered is mouthwatering.

Beer braised shortribs is a close second...

Nothing better for most people. My Ex wife, a vegetarian, wouldn't allow me to cook bacon in the house, as the aroma of cooking bacon was the only thing that tempted her cross back to the sane side.

Bacon and caramelized onions would be on my list also. But my first thoughts are bread baking in the oven, fresh brewed coffee, truffles, panfried potatoes - with bacon and onions :)

Pizza, especially when fresh basil is rampant in my behind the kiln shed garden. The aroma of fresh basil when it hits a hot pie is dux deluxe.

I have a pot of chicken stock on the stove right now, and it smells pretty good! There is some ballotine reside and some roast remains in the pot that give off a rather heady aroma!
