Daphne Oz's cookbook aims for weekend cooking on weekdays

Weekday cooking is fast, frazzled and too often defrosted. Weekend cooking, at its best, is relaxed, fresh and tempting.

Daphne Oz seeks to close the gap in her new book, "The Happy Cook," with 125 recipes that she says are practical enough for Monday through Friday while still tasty and adaptable enough to satisfy a variety of eaters and food concerns.

For TV's "The Chew" co-host, cooking at its best is an act of love and personal fulfillment, something she learned from her mother and grandmother.

She marvels at their "ability to be happy cooks, to have fun in the kitchen, to see it as release and freedom and as a place that was about them having confidence, and being a little bit wild and crazy," said Oz, daughter of doctor-TV personality Mehmet Oz ("The Dr. Oz Show").

Her cookbook has recipes including 10-minute breakfast tacos; balsamic onion and pear grilled cheese sandwiches; sweet corn ravioli; cider-braised brisket; honey-lime chicken wings and — wait for it — chocolate dulce de leche layer cake.

Most call for a reasonable number of ingredients. Others require a fair amount of food prep but also rely on bottled or home-made condiments kept on hand. The photos, whether of nicely plated dishes or idyllic shots of Oz at home with her family, are definitely aspirational.

In an interview, Oz discussed the logistics of making enticing, healthy food while juggling home and work demands, and why she believes counting calories isn't the way to go.

Associated Press: How can parents manage weekday cooking, which might include catering to child and adult tastes, without running screaming from the kitchen?

Oz: Don't make a different meal for every person, but make buildable meals. And, I do this with my kids, try to expand their palates gently. I'll make a basic lentil soup, which is still pretty advanced, with garlic and sweet potatoes and spices. And then make a spicy chili cumin oil for my husband and me to drizzle on top. It feels like an adult meal and a child's meal and doesn't cost me anything extra (in time).

AP: With fresh ingredients, especially veggies, there is potentially daunting chopping involved.

Oz: Having been to culinary school, the single greatest asset I learned there was how to cut and chop properly. It's an investment of money that will save you hours of time down the road, and hopefully some cut fingers. ... I would say even if you start small, start with one element of the meal that you make from scratch that night, and it will make a big difference nutritionally. Even more than that, I think it sets the tone for your family coming together and having a meal together.

AP: Are you concerned the cookbook might be pigeon-holed as suited to those with time and money to spare and easy access to fresh food?

Oz: I looked at all the things I was making on a regular basis and a lot of times I simplified. ... I tried to pay close attention to the reality that no one wants to go out and shop 20 ingredients for every meal they're gonna make. And let's not focus on specialty ingredients, but those homemade flavor-boosters you keep on hand that don't cost you much but that will really elevate your meals. I've tried to strive to make it not something just for the affluent, or people who have a grocery store around the block everywhere they go.

AP: The recipes don't include calorie counts or other nutritional information. Was that a deliberate choice?

Oz: It was. (As a college student trying to lose weight) I tried every diet under the sun and none of them worked but, more importantly, they were robbing me of my love of food. ... Once I got to a healthy place where I could know what would make me feel great and let me indulge when I needed to, I never wanted to go back to a place where I was exclusively thinking about a numbers game. ... My goal with these recipes is that you don't have to think about the numbers because the quality of it and the quantity I'm advising you to eat is something that can easily be part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Adult son of MSNBC's Joe Scarborough fractures skull in fall

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough says his son is doing "much better" after suffering a fractured skull Thursday.

Scarborough's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski said on Friday's program that 25-year-old Andrew Scarborough was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in New York after falling down a flight of stairs. Brzezinski says the younger Scarborough's condition is "touch and go" but says he has been stabilized.

Joe Scarborough missed Friday's show, but said on Twitter that Thursday was "a frightening day and long night." The former congressman says Andrew was able to respond to a neurologist's questions. He said the doctor "ended by asking him his favorite team." Scarborough said Andrew replied, "The Red Sox, who've won 8 in a row."

CBS to donate Charles Osgood's bow tie to museum

CBS says it will donate the bow tie that Charles Osgood wears Sunday to host his final edition of "Sunday Morning" to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

The 83-year-old newsman is stepping down after 22 years as anchor of the leisurely-paced "Sunday Morning," which usually dominates the news ratings on that day. CBS will devote most of the broadcast this Sunday to honoring his career.

The bookish, poetry-reciting Osgood is only the second host the show has ever had since its start in 1979, following Charles Kuralt. CBS hasn't named Osgood's successor yet.

Margot Robbie, The Weeknd set for 'SNL' season debut

Margot Robbie is the first guest host as "Saturday Night Live" begins its 42nd season next week.

NBC said Thursday that The Weeknd will be the musical guest when the show returns Oct. 1.

Robbie is on movie screens as Harley Quinn in "Suicide Squad," with other credits including "The Big Short" and "The Wolf of Wall Street."

The Weeknd's album "Starboy" is scheduled for release in November.

Clinton yukks it up 'Between Two Ferns'

Hillary Clinton fielded oddball questions on power ties, pant suits and the Scott Baio vote on the online comedy program, "Between Two Ferns."

The interview with comedian Zack Galifianakis appeared on the Funny or Die website Thursday. Among Galifianakis' questions was whether she ever watched Donald Trump and thought, "I should be more racist." Clinton just shook her head, smiling.

"I really regret doing this," Clinton deadpanned at one point during the tongue-and-cheek interview.

Galifianakis' popular online program generated more than 35 million views when President Barack Obama appeared on it in 2014 while he was encouraging young people to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. The latest interview comes as Clinton has been courting young voters in her campaign against Trump.

During the five-minute exchange, Clinton and Galifianakis riffed about what Trump should wear to the first debate. Clinton said: "I assume he'll wear that red power tie." Galifianakis replied: "Or maybe a white power tie."

The actor said he wanted to meet the person who makes Clinton's pant suits because he wants to go as a "librarian from outer space" for Halloween.

Looking back, Clinton denied she had any regrets over losing the support of Baio, the 1970s and 1980s sit-com star who spoke at the Republican National Convention.

Delving into her time as secretary of state, Galifianakis asked Clinton how many words per minute she could type. And whether Obama liked his coffee, "like himself — weak?"

He also asked the potential first woman president — who is 68 — if the nation would be "stuck with Tim Kaine for nine months" if she became pregnant.

Ending the interview, Galifianakis referenced her use of a private email server, asking, "What's the best way to reach you? Email?"

Clinton stared at him and didn't respond.

PBS' "Poldark" is back: Flawed hero, satisfied star

Before starting an interview, Aidan Turner checks that he won't be a bother.

"If I need to shut up a bit, let me know, OK?" the Irish actor called out to others using a hotel conference area. "You don't mind if I smoke this vapor thing?" Turner then inquired of a reporter sitting opposite him.

Very considerate, much like Ross Poldark, the 18th-century soldier-turned-mine-owner he plays in PBS' "Poldark." The remake of the 1970s drama series begins its second season Sunday on "Masterpiece" with a two-hour episode (8-10 p.m. EDT; check local listings for time).

The reincarnated Poldark struck some viewers as more of a "do-gooder" than Robin Ellis' portrayal of a moral but willful man in the original series, Turner acknowledges. But he says change is ahead for the Revolutionary War veteran engaged in new fights on his home turf of Cornwall, England.

When the series first began, Turner said, he realized that a sweeping dramatic arc was needed to reveal Poldark's character, for better and worse. After betrayals, a wrenching family death and criminal charges that could cost him his life, Ross isn't Mr. Perfect anymore.

"I knew we were going to have to crash him down, and he makes huge blunders and mistakes, unforgivable kind of actions this season," Turner said. While his "heart is there," he said, Poldark thrashes opponents and cruelly confronts his lost love, Elizabeth, played by Heida Reed.

Sporting a black leather jacket and a beard nearly as dark, the actor himself looks a bit dangerous. But he's affable, smiles freely and is far more engagingly talkative than his character.

Turner's grin is especially notable when he discusses scenes in which his character guides a galloping horse along the Cornish cliffs. They're a staple of the series and always "thrilling" to shoot, he said.

"You finish a take and think, 'This is my job? How lucky am I to do this?'" he said.

But his favorite season-two scene takes place in a courtroom, with Poldark defending himself against murder and other crimes.

"These days, you don't have a lot of time to learn the lines and prep. You might give yourself a week ahead or a few days. I gave myself a month or five weeks of learning the dialogue and playing with it," he said. "I was quite happy with how it turned out. It reminded me of the old theater days, with four or five pages of really chunky stuff."

He also enjoys the domestic turns in which Poldark and wife Demelza, played by Eleanor Tomlinson, simply talk. "She's such a wonderful performer. She's so real, so truthful," Turner said of his co-star.

Between "Poldark" seasons, Turner is making movies and in impressive company.

One is the upcoming "Loving Vincent," about the last days of Vincent van Gogh and including characters from the painter's works (Turner plays one, the Boatman). Saoirse Ronan, Chris O'Dowd and Turner's "Poldark" spouse, Tomlinson, also star.

Another is "The Secret Scripture," directed by fellow Irishman Jim Sheridan ("My Left Foot," ''In the Name of the Father"). The film, shown recently at the Toronto film festival, includes Rooney Mara, Eric Bana and Vanessa Redgrave.

Sheridan is "a hero of mine. He's crazy brilliant," Turner said. "I would have taken any job. I would have worked with the catering guys to see what he was like."

The filmmaker didn't let him down, proving himself a true "actor's director" who sets the bar high and helps his cast stretch to reach it, Turner said. That mirrors how he's pursuing his career as he's become an established name, thanks to projects including "The Hobbit" franchise and "Poldark."

"I'm just picking, if I can, these interesting projects, trying to pick and choose a little more," he said, something he knows is a gift. "At the beginning, to get any job is a privilege — and it still is. That will never disappear because you're only as good as your last job."

Parsons, fellow 'Big Bang' actors top Forbes' best-paid list

"The Big Bang Theory" does a bang-up job of making its stars rich.

The CBS comedy claims TV's four best-paid actors, according to the annual list released Thursday by Forbes .

Jim Parsons led with a $25.5 million take between June 2015 and this June, Forbes said, followed by cast-mates Johnny Galecki ($24 million), Simon Helberg ($22.5 million) and Kunal Nayyar ($22 million).

In fifth place: Mark Harmon, star of CBS' drama "NCIS," was paid $20 million (as with all these actors, before management fees and taxes).

Forbes' list of TV actresses, released last week, reaffirms the generous salaries for "Big Bang" stars: Leading lady, Kaley Cuoco placed second on that list, with $24.5 million.

In that top spot: ABC's "Modern Family" bombshell Sofia Vergara, with $43 million.



UK quiz show champ arrested on suspicion of Amsterdam murder

A quiz-show champion who appeared on the long-running BBC show "Eggheads" has been arrested over an alleged murder, after writing in a memoir that he might have killed a man in Amsterdam almost 30 years ago.

Joseph Connagh, whose professional name is C.J. de Mooi, was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday on a Dutch-issued European Arrest Warrant, London's Metropolitan Police said.

He appeared Thursday at Westminster Magistrates' Court, where a prosecutor said he was wanted over allegations of murder, manslaughter and assault.

"It relates to an incident said to have taken place in 1988 in Amsterdam," prosecutor Brian Gibbons said.

De Mooi, 46, appeared for a decade on "Eggheads," which pits a team of quiz show champions against a different group of challengers each time.

In a 2015 autobiography, he wrote about his troubled youth, and said he might have killed a man while he was homeless in Amsterdam in 1988. He said he punched a knife-wielding mugger and threw him into a canal.

"I fully suspect I killed him. I've no idea what happened to him," de Mooi wrote.

Defense lawyer Chris Stevens said there was a "lot of missing information" from the arrest warrant.

"There doesn't appear to be a named victim in the warrant, date of birth or even an address where this matter took place," he said.

De Mooi was released on bail until an extradition hearing on Nov. 28.

Mary Berry quits 'Great British Bake Off' to stay at BBC

"The Great British Bake Off" is losing one of its main ingredients.

Cookery writer Mary Berry announced Thursday that she will quit as a judge on the hit TV baking competition when it leaves the BBC next year for another channel. Her co-judge, bread expert Paul Hollywood, said he would stay.

Berry, an 81-year-old baking expert, has become one of Britain's more unlikely TV stars as a judge on the contest, famed for her kindly perfectionism and dislike of "soggy bottoms." She has also appeared on a U.S. version of the program for ABC.

"My decision to stay with the BBC is out of loyalty to them, as they have nurtured me, and the show," Berry said.

The BBC announced last week it had lost the rights to "Bake Off," which it has broadcast since 2010, after rival Channel 4 offered more money to program maker Love Productions.

The news upset some of the program's millions of fans, because the publicly funded BBC developed and supported the show, taking it from niche curiosity to cultural phenomenon. "Bake Off" — in which amateur bakers compete to create elaborate cakes, tortes, trifles and flans — is broadcast in dozens of countries and has spawned similar local shows in several countries.

Hollywood said the show "has been a huge part of my life in the past few years, and I just couldn't turn my back on all that."

Co-hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, who set the show's tone of gentle but saucy humor, also are leaving.

Despite the loss of three-quarters of its stars, Love Productions said the show "will remain wholly familiar."

"'Bake Off' will be produced by the same team, in the same tent, with the same recipe," the company said in a statement.
