Four Kitchens - Where are your recipes?

When you work at a company whose name does not immediately describe what it does, you end up explaining what “Four Kitchens” means a lot. After the explanation, the first question is some version of “Are you all a bunch of foodies?”

Like any framework, Drupal offers many predictable, standard behaviors which we can take advantage of. Using this predictability, we can easily test many behaviors including logged-in activity such as posting content.
