My Favorite Foods to Smell

Okay. And eat.

Today's Monday Listicles is all about food. Bridget suggested the topic and gave us free reign over interpretation.

Ask anyone in my family, and they'll tell you stories of how picky of an eater I was growing up. The list of foods I wouldn't eat was probably longer than the list of what I would try. I'm much more adventurous now.

Still, I thought I'd take a slighty different approach, and try to come up with a list of foods that I love to smell.

  1. Fresh bread
  2. Pumpkin pie
  3. Roast - turkey, beef, pork
  4. Potato soup
  5. Chocolate chip cookies
  6. Pizza
  7. Flavored coffee
  8. Warm apple cider
  9. Buffalo wings
  10. Peanut butter
There's a reason fresh bread is #1. That is without a doubt my all-time favorite. When I worked downtown Minneapolis, every morning I would walk by a Subway restaurant. I looked forward to the delectable smells wafting out into the skyway. It always made me smile, and took a lot of willpower to keep walking and not stop to simply relish in the moment of the wondrous smell of baking bread.

What are your favorite smelling foods?
Do you have any memories of the smell of a favorite food?


  1. MMM, chocolate chip cookies smell yummy. I also love the smell of banana bread baking in the oven:)

  2. Warm apple cider is one of the best smells ever. It brings back wonderful Christmas memories.

  3. Oooh, smells. Good idea. So evocative! And, I love Minneapolis! :)

    1. Oh yes! Minneapolis is such a great city (though, right now I'm not all that sad to be away. too cold).

  4. These are all great smelling foods! And a fun spin on the list. My favorite cooking smell is sauteed garlic and sauteed onions. Not something you typically eat without adding something else you can actually EAT, but I LOVE the smell! :)

    1. Oh yes! Those are definitely mouth-watering cooking smells.

  5. All amazing smelling foods! And I love walking into Subway and just smelling the bread!

    1. Subway first thing in the morning, before it's open (or just as it's opening), is seriously the BEST!

  6. Oh yes, bread is by far my favorite smell too! And food :) love your approach.
