How to Cook in Your Underwear Like This Celebrity Did

cooking in underwearIt's clearly the fall television season since we can find TV stars doing wacky things like the Emmys and posing for Esquire porn-style in a bid to get more viewers for the crowded field. Poppy Montgomery goes so far as to strip down in every room in the house -- including the kitchen. While she is giving the audience the impression of cooking up a storm (of salad and eggs? hmmmm), rumor has it the redheaded star of Unforgettable cannot boil water. Which is probably a good thing if that's how you dress when you head to the kitchen.

While I personally find Montgomery's prancing about the kitchen in only her underwear to be an irresponsible message to home cooks everywhere, if it inspires you to fire up the burners, so be it. But I'm here to at least guide you in doing it without having to go to the ER. 

Without further ado, here's what you can safely cook in your underwear, and what you absolutely cannot without fear of burned nether-regions.



Cocktails -- Especially a low-maintenance one like a vodka gimlet: 1.5 ounces vodka, 2 ounces Rose's lime juice, shake it up with ice, strain into a martini glass. Ahhhhh.

Gazpacho -- The no-cook chilled soup guarantees that you'll only endanger your fingers in the food processor.

Popcorn -- The microwave variety. Those hot kernels cooked in oil over the stove can burn your exposed skin.


Barbecue -- Stay away from open flame at all costs. AT ALL COSTS. 

Fried Chicken -- Grease splatters don't know that some areas are more sensitive than others.

Sandwiches -- This may not be hot (or it might be if you're going for meatball, cheese steak, or grilled cheese), but the bigger problem is too many steps. Thus, too many risks for contamination.

If you do, indeed, decide that cooking in your underwear is for you, please follow these guidelines. Your privates will thank me.
