'In the Kitchen With Miss Piggy'

The frog-loving Muppet shows that she — and not Babe — is the prime Hollywood oinker, hamming it up with a collection of gourmet recipes from her celeb pals. With helpful hints from the author, like how to thaw frozen food with a hair dryer (“Moi salutes any … gismo that makes life simpler”), the swine dining includes Melanie Griffith’s pesto, John Travolta’s Lobster With Three Sauces, and Paul Newman’s Tasty Thai Shrimp. There’s also Barbara Bush’s Bologna for a Cocktail Buffet. That’s beef bologna.
