Candies & Confections Bake-Off

The theme of the latest monthly installment of our Bake-Off at work was Candies & Confections. I busted out a classic Christmas favorite, Peppermint Bark.

This creamy, crunchy, minty, chocolaty creation is not just for Christmas anymore.


  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) chopped dark Ghirardelli chocolate

  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) chopped milk Ghirardelli chocolate

  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste) peppermint extract

  • 1 pound (16 ounces) chopped white Ghirardelli chocolate

  • 3/4 cup chopped candy canes or peppermints

1. Line an 11 x 17 inch baking sheet or two 9 x 13 inch pans with parchment paper.

2. Melt dark and milk chocolate in the top of a double boiler over lightly boiling water, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract.

3. Spread chocolate evenly onto the prepared sheet, using a spatula. Chill until set, about 1 hour.

4. Melt white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over lightly boiling water, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract, then add crushed candy canes/pepermints and stir to combine.

5. Spread white chocolate mixture over chilled dark chocolate, spreading to the edge of the pan with a spatula.

6. Chill until set, about four hours or overnight. Refrigerate until just before serving, then break into pieces and serve.

Fight at the Allston Rock City Prom

Soon after this photo was taken, D'Agnes and Liszewski threw martini glasses at each other and shouted profanities until the Common Ground bouncer broke it up.

Who wore it best?

Vote on who you think rocked this flowey tube dress!!

The List #3:: Sassy Sandals

How sassy is this little number from Aldo? For $40, I think they're a necessity for the summer.

The Streets is TONIGHT 10pm on the corner of Glenville and Allston

Although JC Chasez has a serious case of diarrhea of the mouth, and you could take a shot out of Mario Lopez's dimples, America's Best Dance Crew is the second best hour of the week (following the hour of Lost, which just so happens to be the hour before on Thursday nights at 9pm).

I just voted 10 million times on for Status Quo, the crew from our very own Dirty Dot. There are obvi the best. Check it:

More on JC and Mario's utter cheesiness, just look at JC Chasez. This is honestly a stock photo on Ew, yuck.

And Mario Lopez, where to even begin...

I did always love Zack Attack with the horrendous voice overs and fake instrument-playing. Who am I kidding, I still love it.

Crazy old bag lady or sexy beach bum?

You never know what's under a big floppy sun hat. Is it an old lady who suns herself daily outside her retirement community in Miami, a chemotherapy patient, or a celebrity hiding behind gaudy designer shades? Or maybe a bag-lady-ano-celebrity Mary-Kate Olsen.

From Urban Outfitters, these both are $42. Maybe if I can find one for around $20, I can justify the obnoxiousness of it. This is totes staying in the top 10.
