  • Sock Monkey Eats
    Butterscotch sauce, straight from the Joy of Cooking 4th edition cookbook.  It's no fail.  In the same vein is English toffee hard candy.  YUM!  But not in August, unless the air conditioning is taking out most of the humidity from the air. Oh, and canning anything from berries, to tomatoes, to squash, to cucumbers (pickled in various ways).  Come September, it's going to be lots of hot pepper jelly!

  • dailybuzz
     wow, that sounds great!
  • dailybuzz
     it definitely counts!
  • dailybuzz
     That sounds delicious!
  • I have too many to choose!   I guess if it really came down to choosing one.. it would have to be making and canning my own marinara and spicy tomato basil sauce which I'll be doing in a few weeks. I look forward to it every year.  Making and jarring my own roasted peppers and pickles is a close second, which I just recently did with Emeril Lagasse's recipe (totally awesome, by the way: link here : ).  OH! And, if pizza counts as such a project...then pizza too.  I like to eat pizza.  Yes.
  •  My wife's grandma use to make somthing like this for our dog.  we called them "Grandma snacks".  My dog still goes nuts when we say grandma. haha
  • The Gourmet Mom
    Love site. You inspire
  • I like making doggy biscuits in big batches - treats without any added salt, sugar, dairy, preservatives or mystery ingredients.
  •  I love compound butters!  There are an endless amount of possibilities and they are easy to make.  I even have made smoked compound butter!
  • Made my own Vanilla Extract with Balinese Vanilla pods and some Absolut Vodka that's not fit for drink :^P
  • I just made mozzarella this weekend.  And I've been challenging myself this year with a bi-weekly homemade challenge!  http://wildeinthekitchen.blogs...

    http://realfoodfast.blogspot.c... I don't know if making fresh pasta counts as DIY since so many people do it these days...but it's still one of my favorite things to do, especially with friends in the kitchen to help!
