In the editors' HipChat room this week, conversation ranged from the mundane (pleas for coffee and brainstorming sessions) to the bizarre (cat breading, yes, it's apparently a thing).  But the topic that really sent us into a frenzy wasn't food-related, but American Girl dolls.

Two back-to-back new hires mentioned American Girl doll recipes in their introductory Q&As, which sent us on a trip down memory lane. Stories flew back and forth so fast it was hard to keep up: who had which doll (Samantha was the most popular), whether or not anyone ever had to send a doll to the hospital (head replacement is indeed an actual option), and what we learned from reading American Girl publications (Executive Editor Kristen Miglore picked up the hiccup cure she still uses today from American Girl magazine).

If you're busy trying to guess who had which doll, we'll reveal Merrill's (we just hope her sister isn't reading this):
