This Valentine’s Day, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley are treating their husbands to a Harlem-style meal.

In an exclusive clip from their new Awestruck Channel series Snooki & JWoww: Moms With Attitude (which airs Wednesdays on the mobile app go90), the Jersey Shore alums visit N.Y.C. hot spot Sweet Chick to learn how to cook chicken with chocolate-cherry waffles for their husbands. Fried food and carbs for V-Day? We can get on board with that.

Co-owner John Seymour walks them through the entire process and shares the restaurant’s secret ingredient for crispy skin. Because of her time on Worst Cooks in America, Farley is pretty comfortable in the kitchen and can explain some of the cooking vocabulary to Snooki, who spends most of the clip quite confused.

“The most important thing about frying chicken is creating a brine,” Seymour explains to the women.

the restaurant’s overnight brine includes bay leaves, water, a healthy dose of salt, and sage. At this stage, the chicken doesn’t look too appetizing (as Polizzi is quick to point out), but don’t worry, it gets better.

24 hours later, the chicken will be ready to be dredged in flour and cornstarch, which gives it a super crispy texture, then fried. (We’ve got a full version of Sweet Chick’s recipe here).

“Like a chicken cutlet,” Polizzi suggests. “I can make chicken cutlets.”

When it comes to the waffles, don’t skimp on the cherries and chocolate. “The more the merrier,” Seymour says. Let the waffles cook in the for about two and a half minutes, and voila, you have the perfect Valentine’s Day meal!

Want some mac ‘n’ cheese to top it all off? We’ve got Seymour’s recipe for that, too.

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.
