You'd think that life would be good for all the beautiful Baldwin boys. But not so, says Billy, younger brother of Alec. Every time he wants to compete for a cool movie role, the name Tom Cruise pops up, he says. "In my age category, there's only Tom Cruise," Baldwin, who was born in '63, told W magazine. "If they don't get Tom Cruise, it's up for grabs for everybody else: Brad Pitt, Keanu Reeves, Billy Baldwin, Matt Dillon, Val Kilmer, or John Cusak. We're all waiting for his leftovers - or maybe smaller pictures that don't have the money or the scope for a Tom Cruise.

Pennsylvania is doing something about government waste, though not the kind people often complain about. It is trying to make sure that no food served at state functions goes uneaten. A new administrative directive issued by Gov. Casey requires vendors doing business with the state to make a "good-faith effort" to donate wholesome leftovers to nonprofit groups serving the needy. The order lists specific groups in 35 counties, including Philabundance in Philadelphia, and three organizations in Harrisburg, where the state conducts most of its business.

IT WAS the day after Thanksgiving, and the leftovers cried out from the fridge. These weren't ordinary leftovers, either. No, these were the leftovers of the gods, prepared by my mother, my aunt and my wife, LaVeta. These were the foods of my childhood, and they included every unhealthy dish that made the movie "Soul Food" a staple for DVD bootleggers. But I wasn't planning to live my food fantasy through some grainy reproduction of the Vanessa Williams classic. No, I would eat my soul food in person, but I knew I wouldn't have much time.

Everything But the Kitchen Sink (HPBooks, $7.95) is a practical kitchen guide that attempts to help you solve the problem of what to do with all the leftovers that tend to clutter the refrigerator. It also provides insights into saving dollars on food shopping and points out the practicality of cooking ahead.

Here is an excerpt from the blog "My Daughter's Kitchen. " Sometimes, especially after a long day, the most satisfying meal is one that doesn't require a trip to the store. Indeed, everyone needs a few recipes that can be pulled together, even when it seems that there is nothing in the fridge. Or when the few ingredients on hand are nearing their expiration dates. As a lovely package of Baby Bella mushrooms stood out in my nearly empty refrigerator, I thought to myself: frittata.

As preparations begin for what is probably the biggest meal of the year, some cooks may already be wondering what to do with the inevitable leftovers. For help in that regard, we talked with several chefs who will be turning out turkeys by the dozens tomorrow. Among the pros, none plans to use leftovers on later menus - with the possible exception of making turkey stock for soup or gravy. In restaurants, where the plan is not to have leftovers, any excess typically becomes the staff dinner, fills "doggie bags," or goes to local food banks or charities, we were told.

Leftovers again? Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings can lose their allure after a few days. After all, how many turkey sandwiches can one family eat? But with a dose of creativity borrowed from culinary traditions in other parts of the world, or even other neighborhoods, those leftovers can seem inspired. The trick is to transform the turkey into dishes that have nothing in common with the Thanksgiving feast. "Turkey is so easy to use in all kinds of dishes, just like chicken," said Maximo Baez Berg, a longtime maitre d' and waiter who was born in the Dominican Republic and lives in Center City.

The best way to cook in the summer is to do as little of it as possible. But after we've used up our biweekly pizza delivery and our quota of tuna salads, what then? One way out of the kitchen is to use the barbecue to get a head start on a week's worth of meals that need little more than assembly each night on their way to the table. By starting off with a gala cookout, and by preparing enough food to ensure a small amount of leftovers from each course, we can create the foundation for a whole week's worth of menus.

An app created to lessen food waste during the Democratic National Convention will continue to serve the homeless after collecting more than five tons of food over eight days. The Food Connect app, launched July 15 by Food Connect and other local antihunger organizations, allows restaurants, caterers, and individuals to enter their location and have extra food picked up by a vehicle driven by volunteers. Between July 21 and 29, the app collected 11,239 pounds of food, enough for 9,366 meals, city officials said Thursday.

Think of it as Uber for leftovers. Instead of ordering a personal ride, imagine a lift to run unused meals to a local food bank. The Food Connect app, launched Friday by Food Connect and other local antihunger organizations, was created as a solution to the massive food waste anticipated during the Democratic National Convention. The app is available for download on iTunes and the Google Play store. Starting Saturday, restaurants, caterers, and anyone who has food to donate can download the app, enter their location and a pickup time, and have their extra food picked up by a car, van, or truck, depending on the size of the donation.

In the latest legal battle over Pennsylvania's oil and gas law, lawyers representing local townships and the state squared off Wednesday before the state Supreme Court to mop up unfinished business left after the court's landmark 2013 decision striking down statewide zoning for oil and gas activity. Meeting in Philadelphia, the justices heard a plea to overturn a lower-court ruling that allowed some limits on what doctors can disclose about proprietary chemicals used in gas drilling, a ruling opponents call the "physician gag order.

Few dramas have fascinated, confused, and excited me as consistently as The Leftovers . Bleak yet infused by a powerful sliver of hope, HBO's show is a deep existential well of unanswerable questions. As frustrating as they may be, these are the sort of soul-sustaining questions great art poses. If the first three episodes of Season Two are any indication, The Leftovers , premiering at 9 p.m. Sunday on HBO, will continue to shine. Series creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta based the first season on Perrotta's novel . They reinvent the wheel in the opening minutes of the second-season opener.

IT'S NOT OFTEN that I love a show without making a pest of myself to get other people to watch it, but that's where I was with HBO's "The Leftovers" a year ago. And it's where I remain as the show created by Damon Lindelof ("Lost") and Tom Perrotta returns for a second season Sunday with a giant leap beyond Perrotta's novel.
