Punching down risen dough (and slicing it with a dough scraper). Cooking garlic in sizzling hot butter. Putting potatoes through a ricer. Help me find more incredibly satisfying things to do in the kitchen!

I cook/bake a lot, and realized that I derive great happiness from certain aspects of food preparation that are immensely satisfying and fun, and want to learn more of these so that I can have even more fun in the kitchen.
I know it's subjective, but what are some of the most wonderfully fulfilling tricks/techniques/recipes that you use and love in the kitchen? Sights, sounds, smells, sensations... it's all fair game. It doesn't even have to be anything extraordinarily delicious, just really really satisfying.
