Happy Presidents’ Day from The Kitchn! We’re taking today to look over some DIY posts in honor of our February Jumpstart Project. (Have you entered a kitchen project yet? You have just a few more days.) We’ll have some other roundups, too, including one now of some of our favorite President-related food posts.

Read on for Barack Obama’s favorite pie (in music video form), Michelle Obama’s shortbread cookies, Jefferson’s favorite ice cream, and recipes from the Inaugural Luncheon.
