We love simple, timeless recipes like Eva Longoria's Guacamole (let’s be serious—who doesn’t love diving into a delicious guacamole face-first?!), but with the holidays quickly approaching, we thought it would be fun to amp up her recipe with tasty seasonal adds.

We love the flavor and texture that tangy pomegranate seeds and crunchy pistachios add to this classic dip. We also swapped the onions out for more subtle green onions so that the bright notes of pomegranate and the saltiness of the pistachios would really stand out.

You can dig into this tasty dip with your favorite tortilla chips or crudité, but we really love smearing this stuff onto a nice, thick piece of toast and eating it for breakfast or even as a quick and easy snack during the day. Trust us—this will totally satisfy your seasonal foods cravings!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
