Chili. Not just any chili. One made with homemade chili powder that is made a few days in advance. Dried chili pods are seeded and stemmed, then put in the oven to bring out the flavor before grinding them. That process alone fills the house with aroma. Next is toasting the comino seeds to make my own cumin powder. Once again, a hose full of aroma. To make the chili I brown the meat, a combination of pork and beef. Finally, all the ingredients are combined and the the chili simmers for hours. It is a fantastic combination, one that overwhelms the olfactory glands.

I cannot stand lingering cooking smells in the house. I don't mind them while the cooking is being done and eating, but right after that I want them all gone. If you cook onions, or oily stuff, or indian dishes, the entire house is going to stink for days or weeks. Hence any kind of smelly cooking is done outside on the patio. The only cooking smells I am ok with is when baking cakes / pastries.

For many foods, I would agree with you. But others, it is divine to smell the lingering aromas. Chili powder is one of them.

You tell'em CB! It has to be a little spicy with some potatoes thrown in. Wife or mom makes it; I don't cook much these days.
