Top 3 (Cutest) Moments In the Test Kitchen

May 16, 2012

It seemed like everything was adorable in the test kichen yesterday. The top three cutest moments? Well, drumroll, please...

1. You know you've thought it before, too -- chubby baby thighs and a handsome plucked fowl look just a little too similar. We couldn't help stacking up Peter's 4-month-old son Charlie (they dropped by as a surprise!) with a chicken. Charlie's cuter, but they made quite a pair:

2. The weirdest-shaped, smallest strawberries are always the sweetest, don't you think?

3. Merrill made quick work of the mangoes we went through as part of finalist testing for the Your Best Mangoes contest. We love a good mango hedgehog.

Hi nozlee
I had to write you after reading your comment. It's so funny because I am Iranian, an architect, a farmer (just a hobby), and a Mom that likes to cook a lot. I like to cook a lot of thai food and my a American husband and I like to eat a lot of homemade kimchi. I really enjoy food 52 and cook from their menus, often. This is a great time for food lovers. Do you work for food 52? I saw your rose petal jam and it remind me of my Mom's. My next adventure is to make sangak! I will eat some with you in mind. Keep up the good work and to your health.

That is one cute chicken, and I'm not talking about Mr. Oven Stuffer Roaster on the right.

I'd take Charlie over a chicken any day. Cuter, oh yeah.

There sure is a lot of good meat on a baby! Good for tickling, motor-boating, squeezing. So cute.....
