“When I was a kid in the 60’s, my dad was in the navy and we moved a lot. When we sold a home, my mom baked bread when people were coming to look. The whole house smelled great and my folks said it helped with the sale. Now I’ll be selling soon, but I don’t like to bake. Any shortcut ideas?”
Every culture has “memory smells” from good times past. For Americans, it includes baking bread, cookies, pies, or cinnamon buns, roasting turkey, brewing coffee, or logs burning in the fireplace.
If you’re kitchen-challenged, 2 shortcuts:
1) Scented candles specially made with great scents like pumpkin pie or cinnamon spice
2) Put some vanilla and cinnamon in a piece of foil and “bake” it in the oven.
