From getting the right amount on the fork to dealing with danglers, pasta is problematic. Dan and Nicky Meatballs are here to help.

Julia Turner of Slate's Culture Gabfest joins Dan to discuss certain muffin trends and take a quiz on U.S. states' official muffins. Plus secrets of muffin grilling and a caller who needs serious help reheating a leftover meatball sub.

Pat in Pittsburgh called The Sporkful with a familiar quandary: When he heats his leftover meatball subs in the microwave, the bread turns to mush. When he uses the oven, the bread's good but the meat's still cold. Dan offers a solution that Pat deems "perfect".
