NPR has a nice introduction to do-it-yourself kitchen projects, with a few ideas for first time projects.

My favorite line from the story

The possibilities for do-it-yourself culinary projects are endless, I soon discovered, though I also discovered I had a tendency to go overboard.

That seems to ring especially true for me. Though, unlike the author, I never have this following thought.

I was at the farmers market last summer stocking up on cucumbers to make my own pickles (green beans, too). As I passed by the honey stand, I wondered if it might be too much to cultivate a hive on the fire escape outside my bedroom window. Would the neighbors really mind? …I quickly — and wisely — nixed the budding beekeeper idea.

Nix an idea? Pffff.
