psiguyy, I think cumin just may be my favorite spice.
I have not thought of it as resembling my husbands underarms however.
The above mentioned are all wonderful to my nose.
My favorite would be bread baking or in the machine.
I cooked all day long the other day, chicken and dumplings from scratch. I can't tell you the smile on my face every time I had stepped outside to return to that aroma.
Also, any sweet cookies or cakes or pies in the oven.
Mostly though, a huge pot of home made, all day long cooking, tomato sauce
from scratch. Simmer low on stove, all day, and everyone that walks into your house prays to be invited to dinner.
