Looking for a way to spice up your holiday feast? Who better to offer cooking advice than the contestants of Top Chef All-Stars. Add an Asian twist to your Turkey Day with Angelo Sosa's Peking Turkey recipe. Or maybe Mike Isabella's 40-minute, deep-fried turkey is more your style. Then there's Carla Hall's sriracha sweet potatoes, which as she says, really pump up the heat and make the dish more savory than sweet. But Dale Talde's is probably the easiest of them all: White Castle Stuffing. "Just chop up the burgers and put them into the bird," he says. "'Cuz that's how I roll."

OK, we've made no secret of our admiration for Glee's bullying story line and have nothing but love for Chris Colfer. It's an important topic and the kid is like seven layers of fabulous, playing the fear and humiliation of a high-school abuse victim. But between his dad's heart attack and the bullying stuff, it's starting to feel like he's the only student at McKinley worthy of a real story arc this season.

Will Callie's hookup with Mark come back to haunt her when Arizona returns on Grey's Anatomy? — Sharlene
NATALIE: Here's the good news: "Callie and Arizona will be back together soon," executive producer Shonda Rhimes says simply, adding that Arizona will soon show up on Callie's doorstep. "[The breakup] was a way to jump-start the next phase of their storyline." The bad news? Oh wait, this is good news, too! "Mark is her best friend, they slept together before, so it's just recycling. Two people having sex does not necessarily mean that they're in love, or that they're going to be together, or that it means anything."
