Forget the dancing babies, scenic bike rides and dogs chasing their tails: A mini cooking lesson is the best use of the Vine video we’ve seen to date.

Video-crazed food lovers around the world are sharing step-by-step accounts of their favorite recipes. Yes, they’re crazy-short, but the six-second length forces the cook to focus only on the most important steps.

Now, to say that you can actually learn to cook from these clips might be an overstatement. But we dare you to watch our six favorite videos below and not get inspired. And if you’re hungry for more, check out this list of the site’s most popular recipe hashtags.

A word of warning: Once you start watching these clips, you may find yourself completely addicted, to the point where you might not even feel like getting up to make dinner. There’s something oddly soothing about looking at food cook on a loop.

Here’s Lee Murrell’s take on the pecan brownie recipe from Michel Roux’s Desserts cookbook. If only we could jump into the screen and lick the bowl.

Choochick’s Vine about carrot-ginger soup perfectly illustrates how raw ingredients can coalesce into something beautiful and delicious.

Ian Padgham of is a Vine guru: He spends his days crafting quick videos for big brands like NBC and Sony. He doesn’t often feature food, but we’re glad he shot this whimsical ode to morning coffee.

If you like bacon-wrapped dates around the holidays, you’ll love this summery bacon-wrapped mango idea from Sapphire Kush, who gets major props for managing to squeeze information about the oven temperature, cooking time and basic directions into a six-second short.

Watching Karen Comas’ elegant smoothie video gives us that feeling of possibility, like we could suddenly start whipping up a green juice for breakfast every morning.

Sometimes you just need someone to tell you what to make for dinner and how to do it, and Jennifer Shea Rawn does exactly that with her baked cod preparation.

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.

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. Her receipt is $10,250 and transporting cost reaches $17,000 a month. The early scenarios are true to life in that the equipment available to the player is actually inferior to that fielded by the Allied and Soviet opponents, and more than simply rushing a fortified town is required in order to achieve victory with the limited forces available to the player.
