Eyeglasses “I’ve been in New York City for 36 years and have kept all the glasses that I’ve gotten during that time. I have maybe 25 pairs—and I rotate them. I’m in the studio about 100 days a year and I like to mix up my glasses. ” Manhattan frames, $475; E.B. Meyrowitz and Dell, 212-575-1686 Blazer “I never saw my dad in anything but a shirt and tie—even in the heat of summer. So I got some of my sense of style from him. He always said, ‘Dress for the job you want, not the job you have, ’ and when I’m at work, I wear a blazer—then take it off and put on a chef’s jacket over my shirt and tie. ” London blazer, $1,100; paulsmith.co.uk Skincare “I use a lot of products: Crème de…

themes come true

During the past year, my daughters have been to a dance party, a jungle party, a robot party, a pajama party, an American Girl party, an ice cream party, a cupcake-making party, a chocolate-making party, a painting party and a Taylor Swift rock-star party.

The one constant is Weisenberger Mill grits—they’re delicious and made here in Kentucky. I cook the grits with stock and finish them with cream. Then I season them according to my mood. You can find one of my recipes at foodnetwork.com/bakedgrits. —Damaris Phillips Guy, of all the burger joints you’ve been to, which is your favorite? Nick Parks Quakertown, PA Nick, that’s like asking, “What’s your favorite song?” It’s impossible to choose just one. A place is not just about the burger, it’s about the energy. I’d say Guy’s Burger Joint, but if I had to pick another spot, one of my faves is Hodad’s in San Diego—for a lot of reasons.…

Get the Picture You can’t eat in the galleries of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, but you can get a little closer to the food on the walls: The ArtSmart tour company is offering a two-hour Feast Your Eyes tour that focuses on 25 of the museum’s food-and-drinkfilled works and explains their cultural significance—like the fact that 17th-century European centerpieces were probably used for drinking games. $400 for a group of five; artsmart.com TAKE A STAND Bigger is not necessarily better in the world of kitchen appliances: In 1919, KitchenAid’s first stand mixer came with a huge 10-quart bowl (twice the size of the one on a tilt-head model today). Now, almost 100 years later, the company is going mini with a new 3.5-quart mixer (far right). It takes up 20…
