If you consider yourself a world-class eater, dream of being able to enjoy a cheeseburger and cup of coffee at Luke’s Diner, or hope that one day you too will get to enjoy four Thanksgivings, we’ve got some great news for you.

Kristi Carlson, a baker, caterer and fellow Gilmore Girls fanatic wants to ensure you can enjoy the new Netflix episodes of the show as they were meant to be enjoyed — alongside a hot, Gilmore-inspired meal — and is raising money on Kickstarter.

Her new cookbook, Eat Like a Gilmore, will be divided into three sections, reflecting the main sources of food for Lorelai and Rory: food you might find at a small-town diner (think burgers and fries), gourmet meals to serve at Friday night dinner (i.e. salmon puffs) and the kind of adventurous, quirky fare that you could order at an independently-owned inn (like mac n’cheese in a jalapeño chipotle cheese sauce).

“I’ve already spent a few months experimenting with these foods — to test the feasibility of this endeavor. And, let me tell you, the results have all been utterly delicious,” Carlson said on her page, which also features a video in which she channels Luke, Sookie and all three generations of Gilmore women.

She is hoping to raise $20,000 in 25 days to help bring a little bit of Stars Hollow into our kitchens, and as of Tuesday morning, has already collected over $13,500 from fellow Gilmore die-hards.

“This project is specifically designed for people like me – who love the same two things – and who recognize that food is its own quirky, ever-present character in that world,” Carlson said. And, if you make those recipes while binge-watching the new season on Netflix, it’ll bring you just a little bit closer to your dream of watching TV and eating pizza on the couch with Lorelai and Rory.

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.
