a variety of humans rave over the odor of heat apple pie permeating their kitchen. it’s quite remarkable, but in a “been there, done that” kind of way.
allow’s be rebels. roast a few garlic alternatively. its odor is equally aromatic but the completed product is a lot extra hip-pleasant, particularly whilst we puree it with some cauliflower and flip it into soup. now this is just a wholesome addiction waiting to appear. (and it’ll make our kitchens odor like an italian bistro. guess an apple pie can’t do that!)
