Which stars have the best taste in holiday food and drink? We think we’ve pinned it down.

If you survived that pun, check out the holiday inspiration celebs like Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Alba, Faith Hill and Ryan Seacrest are sharing on their Pinterest boards. From crescent-roll pinwheels to cupcakes that look like Rudolph, they’ve got you covered from Thanksgiving all the way to New Year’s Day. And okay, we’ll probably be sipping on Ellen’s cranberry margaritas long into January …

Frosty! What happened? These melted snowman cookies couldn’t be cuter, or more delicious—we spy peanut butter cups!

“$1 Million Recipe – Loaded Potato Pinwheels” the talk-show host posted when she caught sight of these two-bite apps. We don’t know what’s better—these, or the cat-shaped toothpaste dispenser on her holiday shopping pinboard.

The votes are in—these balsamic-coated veggies are winners! The American Idol host liked the looks of this bowl of roasted carrots, parsnips and sweet potatoes, all tender from being slow-cooked for hours.

What a clever take on a Christmas veggie platter! With broccoli “branches,” cauliflower “snow,” cherry tomatoes “ornaments” and a star-fruit “topper,” this dish is enough to convince us of Alba‘s green thumb.

We know what the Hill-McGraw household is serving this holiday season: “Hot chocolate bar for Christmas!” the country superstar posted. Mini marshmallows, rolled wafers, caramels, cinnamon sticks and whipped cream make this a bar that guests will easily warm up to.

What a colorful way for the daytime talk-show host and wife Portia de Rossi to start off a holiday meal! This cranberry margarita follows the classic drink recipe (tequila, lime juice) but then veers into wintry territory with cranberry juice and fresh berries.

The star of The Best Man Holiday calls these brown butter salted caramel cookies “snickerdoodles,” but you’ll probably just call them irresistible. Their special surprise? Chewy, melted caramel centers.

Besides being super pretty, the roasted potatoes the Glee star pinned are a cinch to make. All you do is toss wedges in a variety of colors (purple, pink, white) with olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper, and stick ’em in the oven. What more could a busy actress ask for?

With cranberries, apples, cinnamon and cloves, this hot cranberry salad is like autumn in a baking dish. No wonder it’s Sims’ favorite Thanksgiving food. “I’ve been making it for years and it’s always a huge hit,” she posted, along with the recipe, on before pinning the photo. “My mouth is watering just thinking about it!”

You’ll love dipping these crispy roasted Brussels sprouts in garlicky mayo, just like the former Punky Brewster actress does. (We can’t promise that her kids love it as much!)

How can frosting, a couple of chocolate-covered pretzels and a few M&Ms look so darn cute? The Pretty Little Liars star fell for these reindeer cupcakes, complete with Rudolph-red noses.

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.
