Admit it: You're only here because there isn't a new episode of "It's Alive" right now.
It's OK. I get it. I'm right there with you.
At some point over the last year or so, I have found my new Internet home, and it is the Bon Appétit YouTube page.
Since you're here, I assume you're familiar with the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen, but in case you are not, let me break it down for you real quick: It is Heaven on Earth, and we do not deserve it.
Bon Appétit started out as a food and entertaining magazine in 1956 and was published by Condé Nast. Now, it's still a magazine, but I think we can all safely say that it's become so much more. There's the website, the Instagram accounts, and — of course — the YouTube page. Bon Appétit is not just my go-to source for fancy-ish recipes that I can actually cook in my own home (major shoutout to Molly's adult mac & cheese!); it's also my favorite source of hilarious (yet still totally educational) videos.
If you're not already in love with Claire Saffitz, you are wrong.But all it takes is one video — probably something from the "Gourmet Makes" series — and you'll be head over heels for Claire, whom I have dubbed the Bon Appétit Queen.
And, of course, there's Brad.He is the greatest and he is perfect and funny and an all-around wonderful person, and I am not open to criticism on this opinion at this time, thank you.
I'm not alone in these opinions. Twitter is also obsessed with the Bon Appétit staff:Honestly, you can go ahead and delete every single comic book movie from existence and just leave me Bon Appétit videos. I am so fine with that.
Asking for a friend.
Is there stan twitter for brad and claire from bon appetit,,, asking for a friend— assyla ☆ (@assyla ☆)1555863839.0
Are you hiring?You don't even need to pay me. I will just sit in the corner and taste some of the foods and be friends with Claire, Brad, and Andy. That's all I want.
The @bonappetit YouTube channel has taken over my life and I am 100% okay with it. I’ll just be here watching Cla… https://t.co/JrWEIXSEU3— Sarah Desjardins (@Sarah Desjardins)1546104157.0
My hero:I try to follow this same rule, with the same exception, of course. I also make an exception for any animal accounts because I am not a monster.
My parents.Yes! This person gets it! Honestly, I think there's a fundamental misunderstanding of the dynamic between Brad and Claire. Everyone wants them to be in love but they are really more like brother and sister in my eyes. But also my parents.
Watching videos > cooking.

This person is my actual hero:And lest you think they didn't come up with those perfect matches, they did, friend. They did.
I mean, look:Claire was always going to be Hermione. No doubt about it. Brad as Hagrid? I wouldn't have guessed it, but I see it.
Finally:Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. These are all completely correct. I don't know how you did it. Must be a Ravenclaw.
Yes, please!After we do the Queer Eye/BA crossover, we're gonna need to get on the Harry Potter assignment. Please. Guys. I need this.
For real, though.I hope Claire knows that we all feel this way. Even when she refuses to temper chocolate.
Do they, though?

The only YouTube that matters.
no offense but the Bon Appétit videos where Claire Saffitz attempts to make gourmet junk food is the only content on youtube that matters— lexi (@lexi)1548193841.0
Tragic.When I learned that Claire was leaving Bon Appétit, I cried real, actual tears. When I found out she was going to continue hosting "Gourmet Makes," I breathed a sigh of relief. And when I learned that she's writing her own cookbook (!), I jumped for joy.
She's never going to do it.
