How to light a candle
Kenji couldn't find matches, but he did find a torch.
Massive barbecue and fried chicken lunch
Ben tested out our new Ikea-enhanced reception area. Comfy!
Hambone, the vacuum cleaner
After Kenji accidentally dropped some tortilla chips on the floor, Hambone rushed in to clean up. With his mouth. What a good dog.
Former Serious Eats contributor Tam Ngo visited our office for the first time with her 6-month-old baby Alec in tow. Much aw-ing ensued.
Alec, meet Hambone
We were hoping for a grand new friendship to form, but Alec and Hambone weren't very into each other.
Alec, meet Robyn
Tam: "Robyn, I think it's time you try to hold Alec!" And then Alec cried. :C
Just another day of random food on the kitchen counter
What, you don't eat macarons with manchego?
Celebrity chef tomato sauce taste test
Just make sure you take notes as you taste.
Every flavor of CoffeeMate
Uh oh, did that just happen? CoffeeMate sent us every single flavor in their catalog (EVERY ONE) and now they all live on the bottom shelf of our fridge.
Happy birthday, Leandra!
We wished a happy birthday to Leandra this week with the help of every trifle/pudding from Sugar Sweet Sunshine.

Kenji poses with our new cooktop. ...Don't ask why he looks like that.
It's time for that ol' "toss the pot" game
The cooktop came with some ultra light, flimsy cookware. Probably not that good for cooking, but fine for tossing.
While visiting Ernesto Catena's gorgeous vineyards in Argentina, Drinks editor Maggie Hoffman came across these confused llamas, who were very curious about the motorcyclists who were also there enjoying an afternoon of wine-drinking.
