I am making Eggplant Parmesan and it smells absolutely amazing in my home. I'll even go so far as to say I am proud! It made me consider: is this the best cooking smell coming from my oven ever? Hard to say. Roast Chicken is high on the list. My mom made a beef stew that my cat would sit in front of the stove just to savor the smell of. Obviously, desserts fit the list too, but I was thinking of dinner items. But whatever. Right now the Eggplant is wonderful, but I think if I had to pick an ALL TIME favorite I would say a roast chicken and yams. What is your favorite oven cooking aroma?
