Today was Lily's last day in the office as our intern. :( The editorial crew took a group shot with her so the memories could last FOREVER (or as long as this photo lasts).
Note: Our longtime intern Miki also left this week, but we don't have a photo. :( BYE, MIKI!!!
Lily is a powerful hugger, as seen here with Max and Niki.

Hot Dog Thumb
Kenji has a case of Hot Dog Thumb.
Caesar Salad Dressing Rainbow
Along with hot dogs, we also tasted 11 kinds of bottled Caesar salad dressing. Yuuh...uuh...mmy.
Hot Dogs and Caesar Salad Dressing, Together at Last
What's got Jamie so excited? Ahh, just a video of a lil' goat in a wheelchair. (WATCH IT. AND FEEL. MANY FEELINGS.)
Pasta Set Up
Daniel cooked many batches of pasta to test whether adding pasta water makes a difference. This was the last round of penne cooked with olive oil and water with different starch levels.

Special Pizza Delivery
Williamsburg Pizza popped by to share their pizza topped with grapes, hazelnuts, Taleggio, and truffle oil. Yup, that's good stuff.
Happy Birthday, Jim!
Kenji Loves Egg
This is Kenji's "Omg I'm listening to the 'I Love Egg' song!!!!" He is obsessed with this song. Understandably, because it's awesome.
Nugget Time With Pixel
Erin Jackson worked on a chicken nugget taste test this week, with help from Pixel!
"In case you were wondering, the answer to the question 'Does Pixel like chicken nuggets?' is yes. Here she is grabbing one off the counter."
The latest cuteness from Dennis Lee and Cricket:
"As you can see, Cricket is queen of her kingdom. Er, queendom."
"She is a benevolent ruler."
"Also, Cricket does not like the 'Smell My Finger' game."
Hambone Wants Steak
Hambone, eyeing a big steak suspiciously while Kenji was doing some recipe testing (stay tuned for a smoked steak recipe later this summer!)
