YOU THINK you're eating lots - or are gonna eat lots - this holiday season? Chances are, you ain't got nuthin' on the 28 diners who took part in a 10-hour, 40-dish feast at South Philly's Le Virtù Sunday. You read that right: 40 dishes. Four-oh. And 10 hours. One-oh. (Well, for some people. Not everyone who came and saw also conquered.) Here's how it went down. A little before 2 p.m. at the drizzly end of last weekend, many Philadelphians, some suburbanites, a few out-of-towners filed into the East Passyunk Avenue restaurant with empty stomachs, elastic waistbands and varying degrees of anticipation.

EVERY YEAR AROUND now, food writers' in-boxes fill with pitches on conquering the stressful challenge of cooking a turkey right. Boosting bland flavor. Squelching salmonella. Timing the thaw. To stuff or not to stuff? The pitfalls of this recently established "tradition" (we still don't know if there was any turkey at the first Thanksgiving) are legion. And kitchen cooks can only be rescued, it seems, by expert advice or some newly discovered off-the-wall process. Well, if cooking a turkey is such a high-stakes activity, why not relax and try a turkey-free T-Day?

SHE'S THE Italian mother we all wish we had - making delicious dishes for friends and family. Her cakes steal the show at bake sales. She's Giovanna Damiani, who grew up in a small area outside Naples, Italy, and came to the United States in 1946. At her recent 90th birthday party, guests spanned four generations and included a friend from Brooklyn, N.Y., whom Damiani had worked with in Italy during World War II. A highlight was the signed Carlos Ruiz T-shirt she received. He's her favorite Phillie.

An excerpt from the blog "My Daughter's Kitchen" In my determination to get my family cooking, only my husband remained, quite happily I may add, without cooking skills. It's not that he had never cooked anything. It is just that most of the "dinners" he prepared, no one really wanted to eat. With one exception. He makes a mean lasagna. It was the one thing I taught him to make early on in our marriage, and, many, many times, he has generously agreed to prepare his specialty dish.

IN THE END, says Patrick Duffy, returning to "Dallas" was like "the snapping of the fingers and you're clucking like a chicken. It's like no 20 years have gone by. " Yet before executive producer Cynthia Cidre's script lured Duffy and co-stars Larry Hagman and Linda Gray to TNT's version, Duffy said, they'd all seen some bad scripts for "Dallas" projects. "Nobody knows why ‘Dallas' was successful, what made it work, and so they tend to hang it on cliché characterizations: J.R. [Hagman]
