Help! Cooking Odors Overwhelm My Small Kitchen

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved into a much smaller space, with no windows in the kitchen. I cook with a lot of really aromatic ingredients like onions, garlic, and curry, and I've noticed that my entire apartment will smell like my last dinner for far too long! Any suggestions for how to prevent overwhelming small spaces with cooking odors?
