I meant to post this a while ago when we got a new, fancy two door fridge. It is tradition to get inside the fridge before getting down to business. Jen and Jill did something awesome, I acted like a weirdo because making eye contact with cameras is the worst. Fun was had by all.
Sometimes people I like come to the kitchen while I toil away. Sometimes they bring friends. Sometimes they are drunk or not. Regardless, if you come at the right time I will feed you bagels.
These aren't bagels, I know. These are everything I want a cinnamon bun to be: soft, tender, buttery and most importantly covered in cream cheese frosting. Currently carried by Aliviar Coffee House!

Sometimes, while bageling in the small hours of the morning your friends come by with a gigantic bottle of white wine. Then they take nice photos that obscure the fact that you accidentally made really freakishly large cinnamon raisin bagels that night. Or that you work 10 hour days every day and you're really very sleepy. Then you all eat at least two bagels hot out of the oven.
