When I melt butter and add turmeric it smells so good.Of course fresh baked bread,banana bread,apple cake/apple pie and homemade pizza .When I cook Punjabi cuisine,sautéing garlic and ginger and adding after the onion and the fresh ground or roasted spices.Not to forget the aroma in the house of fresh baked Christmas cookies, making my own Marzipan,Lebkuchen/gingerbread using cinnamon,honey melted butter and clove.When I prepare the apple filling for my cake with wine,lemon juice,lemon zest,sugar,cinnamon I almost start to drool.

Op. I sense your delight in this aroma. Good for you!

Just don't invite me over..garlic has a negative smell to my nose. Maybe it's from being inundated with garlic in everything my son cooks! It's repulsive in tuna casserole and my salmon fish. Too much of it. Blah.

A couple posts mentioned "real" butter. Is there any other type of butter? Besides normal butter, the only other kind of butter I can think of is ghee but wouldn't it also be considered "real"?

As opposed to margarine... you know... the fake butter.

What do you make that smells so good you can't wait to eat the dish? Even if, like onions and garlic, it's just a small part of the overall flavor?

To me.. nothing smells better. My husband always did the same. If there was the smell of onions and/or garlic in the air, he would say.. mmm... what are you cooking? Smells good!.

A BBQ sauce for 3 lbs chicken pieces in the oven consisting of 1 pack dry onion soup mix, 1/2 c ketchup, 1/4 c brown sugar, squeeze lemon, 1/2 water and pinch of salt. Pour over chicken and cover and bake at 350 for an hour. The smell is so heavenly. When I lived in an apartment it lit the whole hallway up. People asked what I was cooking that smelled so good.
