    I haven't really tried it, but my mom usually lights up a candle in the kitchen while she is making fish to get rid of the smell. It does help.

    Put a little cinnamon and clove into a pan of water. Heat the water, and let it simmer. The house will soon smell like cinnamon buns. You can also use mulling spices.

    A lemon scented candle will do the job!  The scent is not over-powering and is pleasant in the kitchen.

    If you cannot stand the smell, cook something else. I personally believe that cabbage has an appetizing aroma when cooked. There are things called "vent a hoods" that can vent the vapors from the stovetop.

    Under normal circumstances, cabbage only produces a strong smell, when it is overcooked.
