Known for following a healthy, organic diet (you know, with the occasional Kit Kat thrown in for good measure), Kourtney Kardashian appreciates the “perfect comfort food” that is macaroni and cheese.

The reality star shared her recipe for the cheesy dish exclusively on her app and with PEOPLE. And while it looks decadent and rich, this meal is not about to set you into a guilt-filled food coma.

“Who doesn’t love mac ‘n’ cheese?!” she asks.

“I use all organic ingredients, gluten-free noodles and non-dairy cheese whenever possible, as my kids and I aren’t eating gluten or dairy,” says the mom to Mason, 7, Penelope, 3 and Reign, 2.

Kardashian opts for easy substitutes in the recipe to give it her healthy spin—like adding turkey bacon instead of traditional bacon. She also incorporates almond milk for a touch of sweetness, non-dairy cheeses (though you can use the real thing as long as it’s organic, she says) and gluten-free pasta.

“I bake this on the top rack of the oven so it gets crunchy on top,” she says. “I love the mix of flavors and textures. YUMMMMMMY!”

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.

There was a national news story on just this week about how putting young children on a gluten-free diet, unless they’ve been specifically, MEDICALLY diagnosed with a gluten allergy, is actually doing more harm than good and CAUSING more possible health problems than it’s preventing. But it’s so trendy to say you’re gluten-free that I guess nobody cares.

I rather doubt she actually cooks at all. Remember, she can’t even peel a banana! Then too, she always has her nose up her ass, so how can she do anything?
