The office is evolving. Work today is being done in new ways and in new places. No longer is the corporate facility the only place where successful, thriving companies are getting things done. In fact, many of them have found and embraced this office evolution and have deposited their results squarely on the bottom line. Perhaps you’ve heard a lot about telework. You may strongly believe that sending people home or to “hotelling” locations to do work normally performed in the office may be the right thing to save money, create a better work-life balance or help reduce your corporate carbon footprint. These are all valid reasons. But is your company ready for telework? Here are some things to consider before you begin the process:

At Twist OP we love a great cup of coffee. But, did you know that there are also some great recipes on the Keurig Blog. Here are two of our favorites - let us know if you try them and if you agree that they are keepers!
Barista Beef Stew! A one pot meal, beef stew sticks to your ribs, fills you up, and warms you all over. No wonder cowboys make it on the trail. Being who we are, we had to add a little of Barista Prima® Italian Roast coffee to the mix, which helps to bring out the flavor of the mushrooms and thyme. Cowboy, meet barista.
Barista Beef Stew Serves 6
Directions Heat large Dutch oven and add 1 Tablespoon oil. Cook beef in two batches, browning on all sides. Transfer to bowl or plate. Add remaining oil to Dutch oven along with onions, garlic, and thyme. Cook, stirring, 5-minutes or until softened. Add wine, coffee and broth, scrapping up brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Transfer the beef and accumulated juices back to the Dutch oven and add mushrooms and bay leaf. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1-hour. Add carrots and simmer, covered, 30-minutes or until beef is tender. Stir in peas and parsley and cook for 5-minutes or until cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. -

Dark Chocolate Flourless Cake Who can resist a great chocolate cake? We bring you an intense chocolate, almost brownie-like cake smothered with more chocolate. Here’s the recipe, and I think it’s a perfect contender for your Valentine’s Day date night dessert.
1 Cup bittersweet (or you can use semi sweet) chocolate chips
½ Cup unsalted butter
¾ Cup granulated sugar
¼ Teaspoon salt
2 Teaspoons Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
½ Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Ingredients for the Glaze:
1 Cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
½ Cup heavy cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease 8” round spring form pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper. Grease the top of the paper.
For the cake: Place the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Slowly heat (30 seconds at a time) until the butter is melted and the chips are slightly melted. Stir until chips are completely melted.
Stir in sugar, salt, coffee and vanilla. Add the eggs, beating until smooth. Finally add the cocoa powder. Transfer batter to the cake pan, and bake for 25 minutes, or until the top forms a thin crust. Let cool completely.
Glaze Directions: Combine the chocolate chips and the cream in a microwave safe bowl. Heat until the cream is very hot, but not boiling. Remove from microwave and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth and glasslike. Carefully spoon the glaze over the cake. Allow the glaze to set and harden before cutting – about 1 hour. -
