My house smells like Sunday. It’s comforting, embracing, relaxing..

I still had veil from Croatia in the tiny freezer, add up some herbs I picked in Croatia and dried myself, a good Spanish wine, a few Amsterdam- bought ingredients, love and patience and there’s the Smell of Sunday.

Is there any smell that can make your day and instantly make you feel happy?

  1. Yes! The smell of beef stew slowly cooking through the day during a cold winter.

    That, by the way, looks delicious!

    • Now you mention it, it smells a bit like a fall or winter stew and it’s summer in Amsterdam! Well I love this smell anytime and the preparation is my way of meditating ;)
      Thanks for your comment & like.

  2. smell of coffee in the morning. smell of sweet rice cooking.
    and the characteristic body smell of some attractive men :)

  3. Thanks so much for sharing what you do. I look forward to travelling and cooking with local ingredients shortly. Hearing about your ingredients and this post makes me a smile..as well as impatient ;)

  4. Cooking & baking are my definite ways to relax and if there’s a touch of vanilla (in a dessert) or freshly roasted chicken, I’m pretty much content :)

  5. White Sage leaves burning, Nag Champa incense….sauteed onions too :)

  6. It would have to be the smell of a roast Sunday lunch, beef and Yorkshire pudding or roast pork, crackling and apple sauce. This is real home-cooked British food which is very hard to recreate in a restaurant.
