Brian's pick for the week:
This was tough.  I guess I'd have to say sourdough starter.  I know a lot of people got into bread-making during the pandemic.  I didn't start until just a few months ago.  The starter and some equipment were a Valentine's Day gift from my wife.  I've made bread, pancakes, dinner rolls, and biscuits.  It's a great compliment to the technical side of my life.  There are recipes to follow but you don't have to be exact.  It's peaceful just mixing ingredients and kneading dough.
