Sarah Michelle Gellar Turns Baking With Her Daughter Into Bonding Time

If you ever need to find Sarah Michelle Gellar, chances are she’s in her kitchen.

Since launching her kid-friendly baking brand Foodstirs in October, the actress—who is mom to Charlotte, 6, and Rocky, 3, with husband (and “amazing chef”) Freddie Prinze Jr.—says “we spend pretty much 90 percent of our day there. Whether we’re cooking or cleaning up the messes we made – that’s our family space.”

Especially during the holidays, when the actress tackles a long list of baking projects, like her Snowflake Brownies, made from a Foodstirs kit. “My kids are obsessed with snowflakes because we don’t have snow here in Los Angeles,” she tells PEOPLE in their special subscriber-only issue about Holiday Entertaining. “And especially, after Frozen, all anyone wants is snow!”

Baking, which started as a fun after-school activity to do with her daughter, has now caught the eye of her son. “My son loves to help us,” says Gellar, 38, “especially when it comes to sampling the sweets. He likes to wait for his sister to turn around and then also eat hers.”

And it’s also a learning experience. “You’re having so much fun, you’re forgetting it’s an educational moment, but baking teaches motor skills, mathematics, vocabulary,” she says. “My daughter will read an instruction and it’ll say ‘pour two cups of milk’ and my daughter will look for the number two and she’ll turn to my son and say, ‘ok, Rocky, which one is the number 2?’ And then he’ll point to it and all of a sudden my then 2-year-old recognizes the number.”

And mostly, Gellar relishes the time with her kids. “It’s great to have this experience,” she says. As an added perk, “nothing smells better than a house where baking is going on.”

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.
