Every time I make a recipe that starts with onions and garlic sauteed in butter or olive oil, my husband wanders into the kitchen and says, "Wow, that smells so good!" Sometimes there's celery or Bell peppers in the mix. But mostly he (and I) love the smell of onions and garlic.

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?

Most food smells good! We like onions and garlic too. The smell of bacon, fresh bread, apple pie, chocolate chip cookies, or just plain toast usually draws my family to the kitchen.

On the other hand, the smell of mushrooms cooking makes me gag. And liver. I used to leave the house when my mom cooked liver, and no, the onions didn't help in that case.

My favorite is the combination of bacon and coffee in a percolator. Coffee (robusta is mandatory) prepared in a percolator tastes terrible, but no other method of preparation provides that stellar aroma.

My husband has been known to actually eat onions and garlic out of the pan (even if they are waiting to go into another dish). Grrrr!
