    anything with some warmth and spice to it like cinnamon or nutmeg.  Sometimes I boil orange peels with cloves just for the aroma to fill the house.  I also use tart melts with various scents on hot, yucky days where I don't want to cook wink lol.  I use scents that are light and clean or fruity in the summer months.

    Bread. Nothing has the ability to comfort the dark soul and brighten the dark day like bread baking in the oven. It makes you glad to be alive just so you can have a piece of it still hot slathered in butter. It must be an embedded racial memory.

    I absolutely love the way my house smells when I make homemade meetballs and sauce.  Something about the way the garlic and herb aroma makes me feel like I'm back in my mom's kitchen.

    Veggie Stew, Spicy Cornbread, and Peach Cobbler with a fresh pot of coffee. Always puts my house at ease and smells awesome.
