Have you always wanted to make vegan brownies with Dwight Schrute? Or cook cranberry turkey chili with Kevin? Well, you’re in luck: Angela has a cooking show. Or, the actress who played her, Angela Kinsey, does — and it is completely and totally delightful.

While Angela, the character on The Office, was sort of awkward and strange, Kinsey turns out to be a completely socially functional human being. In fact, she’s hilarious. Meanwhile, her husband, Josh Snyder, is the same, plus he’s extremely handsome and an excellent baker. Together, they have a YouTube cooking show called “Baking With Josh & Ange,” and it’s surprisingly good. As in, I haven’t been able to stop watching since the minute I learned about it.

The show is mostly wholesome and fun, with an adorable mix of earnestness, enthusiasm, and self-deprecation. There’s friendly banter led by Angela, easy-to-follow baking instructions led by Josh, and the occasional “That’s what she said” joke. While you don’t have to be a fan of The Office to get most of the jokes or follow along, there is a ton of Office-related humor and — the best part — tons of guest appearances by Kinsey’s former co-stars. Jenna Fischer recreates scenes from the show with her and there are plenty of jokes about which husband is which when Rainn Wilson is on. Oh, and watching Brian Baumgartner act like a normal human is extremely disconcerting.

There are also other guest stars like Busy Philipps. Perhaps the greatest episode is their collection of bloopers, which claims they’ve launched a website that sadly doesn’t really seem to work. Still, they say that Josh built it himself, which means not only does he bake for the episodes, but he also builds websites. All of this while being really, really good-looking on camera.
