It’s Easy Baking Green: Make Kermit Cookies With Miss Piggy and the Swedish Chef

Muppets Cooking Lesson

Miss Piggy, we love the leopard dress, but are gloves and jewels really appropriate kitchen attire?

In honor of their new movie Muppets Most Wantedopening March 21, the lovable lady pig and the Swedish Chef joined Rosanna Pansino, host of popular YouTube baking show Nerdy Nummies, to make sugar cookies in Kermit’s likeness.

Turns out the evening wear didn’t matter: In true form, Miss Piggy watched as Pansino and her Muppet pal did all the work. (Shielding herself with a big piece of plastic from the Swedish Chef’s sloppy flour pouring probably shouldn’t count as “helping.”)

When Pansino started rolling out the emerald-colored dough, Miss Piggy covered her eyes. “I cannot look. It’s like my Kermie got into an accident crossing the street!”

“It does sort of look like a squished frog, doesn’t it?” agreed the host.

After using a cookie cutter to shape the batter into letter Ms (for “Muppet,” of course!), Pansino popped the cookies in the oven. Good news: They only take 5 minutes to bake. Then, the fun part: decorating the treats with frosting and sprinkles to look like Kermit’s signature frog collar. The ever-resourceful Miss Piggy suggested, “Decorate them in my mouth!”

Want to guess who grabbed the first cookie?

Watch the cooking demo video below, then make your own cookies following their easy recipe.

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.
