It’s getting really, really close to Halloween!Â While some of us will probably just be drunk in a half-assed costume, other grown up people will be going to theme-y dinner parties or some such mature affairs. In order to be festive/make other guests feels bad about themselves, it’s a great idea to bring a gift! We rounded up some nice ones on the cheap. More
At first I thought the Cronutsâ„˘ craze that swept New York City was going to be a fleeting fad, but like the cupcakes and tart frozen yogurt trends before it, it seems that the donut and croissant splice is only going to get more pervasive. Though people still line up for the treat like a bunch of nerds waiting in line for Star Wars, knock offs are cropping up left and right making the exclusive status symbol of a snack more accessible. The same thing happened with cupcakes which spread from Magnolia Bakery and tart frozen yogurt from Pinkberry. Soon enough there will be Cronutsâ„˘ everywhere and we wonâ€™t be able to escape them.

Everyone loves Girl Scout cookies. This is a fact. There’s nothing like tracking down the one person at your office with a kid in the Girl Scouts so you can get your fix of delicious thin mints (especially good when stored in the freezer).

How’s that for alliteration? Yep. I learned how to master that in college. I learned how to do a lot of things in college. Thanks to my fine undergraduate education I received from Miami University (the one in Ohio, not by the beach) I now also know basic French, who Hunter S. Thompson is, how the Union won the war and a whole lot more about the Civil Rights movement from a class that was not about Civil Rights in the slightest. But apparently I missed out on some brilliant college courses being offered these days elsewhere. Yesterday, we posted that the University of Baltimore offers a class all about zombies. According to The Frisky, the University of Virginia is offering a class all about Lady Gaga. Our friends at Lemondrop say that you can now enroll in a Science of Luxury graduate program at the International University of Monaco (meaning you get to study all about Gucci and Versace in the south of France … sign me up!). Classes about Harry Potter are also now popping up in curricula across the country. I love Harry Potter! That class would have totally raised my GPA. But, now that I’ve graduated *tear* I can only live vicariously through those privileged students who can break up their monotonous course schedules of anatomy, geology and intro to sociology with super cool classes like these.

One of my neighbors in college used to make these spectacular bacon cupcakes. I’ve spent the past few years searching for anything even remotely resembling them, but the closest I’ve come are these sad little brownie cupcake they sell at … More
