I have a pea soup with ham boiling on the stove. The aroma in the house is tantalizing. Sooo, what's your fav? turkey? beef? coffee? bacon?.... ?

Bobert... weed don't count eh?

Win: Bread in the oven

Place: Bacon frying, with freshly ground coffee behind it

Show: A garlicky roast or stew

Honourable mention: Boiling strawberry jam -- actually one of the world's most ambrosial scents, but for some reason, it doesn't hang in the air. If it were more persistent, it would be the hands-down winner.

Frying onions and/or garlic.

They have the added advantage creating a sumptuous aroma in a very short time so it smells like you've been busting your hump cooking for hours when, in actuality, you didn't even get started until you heard the SO's car pull into the driveway.

Charmion... "Win: Bread in the oven"

Yeah, that's a win. But it's closely contended by all of the others.

Gramps' beans with molasses every Saturday night. Although, oddly enough, his bread sucked because he didn't put any salt or sugar in it and he used a flour that was course. Then again, it went well with the beans poured on top of it. Maybe he DID know what he was doing?

Severe right turn here: Speaking of aromas, the only store I know of that smells just like it did when I was a kid is a drug store/pharmacy. The blend of candle, candy, boxes, whatever, is just the same and easily identifiable.

Charmion said it all for me. But I'd add any cookies at all! When I was a child, my mother always baked cookies on the first day of school, timed so that they'd be just out of the oven as I walked in the door, the smell lingering in the air. I was so sorry not to be able to do that more than a few times for my own kids- except for once or twice, I was always at work on their first days of school!

So we'd all bake cookies in the afternoon!

Emma just perfectly roasted a pork joint for our lunch; I was sitting upstairs in the study, which has a sort of balcony arrangement over the kitchen and dining-room: the smell that wafted up was transcendental. So ~~ bacon is good; so is a fresh egg frying in hot unsalted butter over a slow heat; and percolating coffee ~~

but I think the roasting joint has the edge for me.

Still, it's one of those "ask again next week and you'll probably get a different answer"

[like, maybe, toasting cheese on the welsh rabbit, esp when you've added some mustard powder & a dash of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce]

thingies, eh?

Yum

Gnu the recipe Maeve linked to looks easy and delicious - if you haven't ever eaten Key Lime pie you should try making this. Key Lime pie is sooooo good - one of my favorites along with pumpkin, cherry, sweet potato, blackberry, apple, chocolate silk, pecan....the only kind of pie I'm not too fond of is lemon meringue.

Now there's a a great aroma - any kind of fruit pie or cobbler baking in the oven on a chilly day.

Pulling the roasting tin of red hot goose fat out of the aga in order to put the parboiled spuds in.

The Illi beans tin as I pull the lid to fill the coffee machine.

The onions and garlic frying down whilst I decide what to cook with it.

In fact many cooking smells, although the dog's bean bag and therefore dog (a greyhound so doesn't move far) is next to the aga and the smells emanating from that particular corner of the kitchen can be described as memorable alright, but not quite what we are discussing here..

As we speak I'm roasting a shoulder of free-range pork. It's been in the oven for 5 hours (at 160 deg) and I've just put it back after putting it on top of a pile of veg, garlic and bay leaves to roast for another hour. I'll use the veg for gravy.

It smells wonderful.

Otherwise bacon and coffee.

Also, call me a jessie, but I like to keep Sweet Pea flowers around during the summer.
