Go-to glasses “When I was a teenager, I would wear fake glasses because I wanted to look cool and smart. Now I would do anything not to need them. I have a pair of readers in every room of the house—but I still can never find them.” Roy D readers, $79; eyebobs.com Essential boots “I hate suffering for beauty in high heels.

getting real

How many times have you placed your Thanksgiving turkey on a fancy platter, surrounded it with an assortment of greenery or other garnishes and delivered it to the dining room table so everyone could ooh and aah over the main dish? I’m going to guess…zero. Because doing this would mean you’d then have to get up from the table, take the bird back to the kitchen, remove the greenery, put the turkey on a cutting board and carve the whole thing, all while your family and friends are sitting there waiting to start eating. It’s nonsensical when you think about it, but for years we’ve painstakingly garnished and primped the birds on our November covers for this imaginary scenario. Every summer when we’re planning the shoot, we go crazy looking for…

Guy, you’ve mentioned on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives that you don’t like eggs. Why? Donna Roberts Jacksonville Beach, FL I used to eat fried egg sandwiches as a kid. Then, when I was 8, I had…let’s just say an unusual experience cracking one that made me realize the relationship between a chicken and an egg. After that, it was all over. There’s also something about the texture of the yolk I can’t get on board with. I love using eggs in cooking or in a dressing, but I’m definitely not a runny-yolk guy. —Guy Fieri Damaris, what is your go-to meatball recipe? Julia Plotniak South Hadley, MA I like using lean ground beef, so I mix in parmesan and ricotta cheese to give the meatballs a little extra fat. This keeps them moist and at the…

great shakes

The milkshakes at Black Tap, a New York City burger joint, have a lot more than a cherry on top: The Instagram darlings are stacked high with cookies, cantilevered with candies and finished off with slices of cake or, in this case, a whole caramel apple. Fans have been waiting up to three hours to try one, and now creator Joe Isidori is sharing his most popular recipes in a new cookbook, Craft Burgers and Crazy Shakes from Black Tap. The only downside to making your own, of course, is that you have to clean it up, too. $25; Pam Krauss Books…
