Your daily entertainment briefing with an easy dinner recipe for Apple Pizza, "Something's Gotta Give" tonight on E! and a quick music review for Sarah Blacker's album "Come What May."
Dinner idea: Apple Pizza
1 pizza shell (thin)
4 tart apples, such as Granny Smith, cored and sliced into wedges (peeling optional)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup apricot jam (optional glaze)
Set the pizza shell on a baking tray. Cover it with apple slices in a spiral pattern, dribble on lemon juice. Mix sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of apples. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Heat the apricot jam for 15 minutes and pour on apples after baking. Otherwise, excellent with whipped cream.
On TV: ‘Something’s Gotta Give’ on E! at 8 p.m. EST; 7 p.m. CST
In this unique romantic comedy, Harry Sanborn (Jack Nicholson) is an older playboy dating girls half his age, like Marin (Amanda Peet). But he winds up being nursed back to health by Marin's reluctant mother Erica Barry (Diane Keaton), a famous, divorced playwright. Harry starts to find that a woman his own age isn’t that bad. However, some habits die hard.
Now hear this: Sarah Blacker’s new CD ‘Come What May’
Sarah Blacker said her second album, “Come What May,” better represents what she is all about. The title cut rolls along with an easy pop flow, though there are hints of jazz and country roots beneath the surface. However, the most arresting song on the new album is “I’m Like a Train, My Lord,” which Blacker sings solo, with just her guitar.
