The Saved By the Bell nostalgia continues to flow like milkshakes at the Max.

Fresh off the news that a diner themed around the show will open in Chicago this summer, fans now have a new reason to get excited: Zack and Kelly are back on! Well, sort of.

Tiffani Thiessen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar have returned to television together, this time for an episode of her Cooking Channel show, Dinner at Tiffani’s.

Thiessen had previously hinted to PEOPLE that there “might possibly” be a reunion with her former on-screen beau this season, and now we have photo evidence. Staying true to their roots, the pair is clad in head-to-toe denim to satisfy all of your ’90s fashion trend needs.

And while we all know that their SBTB characters ended up in wedded bliss with each other, each of them is now happily married to other people — Thiessen to actor Brady Smith, and Gosselaar to Catriona McGinn. Both spouses appear in the episode as well, and the four of them even stopped to snap a selfie together.

Grilled Artichokes with Honey-Chile Dipping Sauce
Recipe courtesy of Dinner at Tiffani’s
Serves 8
4 medium artichokes
1 lemon, halved
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. chile sauce, such as Heinz
1 tbsp. honey
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil, for brushing

1. Cut ½ inch off the top of the artichokes. Then cut each artichoke in half vertically. Using scissors, trim the leaves of pointy ends. Carefully cut out and discard the fuzzy chokes in the center of each half. Rub the artichokes with lemon.

2. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer rack. Add the artichokes, cover, and steam until tender, about 30 minutes, adding more water if necessary. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool.

3. In a bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, chile sauce, honey, ¼ teaspoon pepper and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

4. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.

5. Brush the steamed artichokes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, cut-side down, until nicely charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

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.

Cute! She is an amazing cook!

They both look fabulous. Nice seeing child actors that have turned out well, and seemingly happy.

Side note: Lobster and blueberry mojitos? Lol, pretty sure you’re in need of a comma, unless she’s making one funky beverage.

Such a cute pic and so funny they are both wearing denim!! Love the pic with their spouses too. They have aged so nicely and it’s nice to see that they are happy and family oriented.

They should get married. Tiffani Theissen is still gorgeous.

They’re rocking their Canadian tuxedos hard core.

Side note: I will need to try those artichokes!
