Ann, Nancy and Quincy

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Heart for my "Anatomy of a Song" column on their 1977 hit, Barracuda (go here). I spoke with Ann and Nancy Wilson, Roger and Mike Fisher and Mike Derosier about the sexist ad and remark that led Ann Wilson to write the lyrics to the song. [Photo above of Ann Wilson, left, and Nancy Wilson courtesy of Facebook] Here's the band performing Barracuda in 1977...

What I Learned When My Mom and I Swapped Skincare Routines

There are many things I like to think I inherited (or am still trying to) from my mom. Her badassery, her work ethic, her humor, and her great skin. Although my mom wasn't hugely into makeup when I was growing up (she didn't need much more than eyeliner and mascara) - she definitely knew the importance of a good skincare routine, and it's something I picked up from her early on. She's the first person to raid my skincare stash and is always up for the bizarre beauty trends I'm instructing her t...

A Quick Guide to Writing Enticing ‘Benefits Headlines’

Which of these headlines is most likely to spur you to sign up for a webinar? One reads “New Webinar Helps Managers Improve Productivity” and the other says “Get All Your Work Done in Half the Time, Be the Office Hero, and Go Home Early.” The correct answer is the second choice, and that’s because it’s a “benefits headline,” which is a type of headline that entices your readers by showing how your product, service or idea will make your life better. Here are five tips for crafting effective bene...

Comment on smashed chickpea salad by Ann

I don’t think it’s fair to comment on recipes if you’ve made changes in the recipe. But I made this, subbing in white onion instead of red, and capers instead of black olives, and it was gloriously lemony and complex and altogether delicious. I served it with bread squares for an appetizer one night, then enjoyed it for lunch the next two days (having doubled the recipe). What a winner of a recipe! It’s going into my rotation for sure.

Comment on whole lemon tart by Ann

Made this, but was afraid it would be too sweet so I only used 1.25 cups of sugar (instead of 1.5 cups), and when I tasted the filling, I found it not quite as lemon-y as I wanted, so I added another half a lemon and another 1 teaspoon cornstarch. This works out beautifully and was really nicely balanced. Works great in a 9in springform pan. I definitely don’t think this would fit in a tart shell (would overflow).

Mueller Speaks: ‘No Comment’ For Inquiring MSNBC Reporter

Special counsel Robert Mueller muttered a “no comment” to an MSNBC reporter Sunday in response to questions about the release of his redacted final report. MSNBC’s Mike Viqueira confronted Mueller as the special counsel and his wife Ann got into their car following Easter services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C.

He Died a Thousand Times — and Lived: Adoniram Judson (1788–1850)

The story of Adoniram Judson’s losses is almost overwhelming. Just when you think the last one was the worst, and he could endure no more, another comes. In fact, it would be overwhelming if we could not see it all from God’s long historical view. The seed that died a thousand times has given life in Myanmar (formerly Burma) to an extraordinary movement to Christ. When Adoniram Judson entered Burma in July 1813, it was a hostile and utterly unreached place. William Carey had told Judson in ...

Best hiking in the US

Urban hiking is no walk in the park. Somewhere between a gentle stroll and a spirited parkour session, urban hikes transform city streets, stairways, and sidewalks into metropolitan trails laced with both natural and cultural landmarks. Generally, the goal is to map a route that manages some elevation gain and takes advantage of whatever green spaces or nature retreats a city has to offer, all while keeping a brisk enough pace to get in a solid workout. Not all cities are particularly walkabl...

‘The Best of Enemies’ Review: A Fascinating True Story Gets a Trite Adaptation

The new true-life drama The Best of Enemies exists in a unique, purgatory-like space. On one hand, the events it depicts are fascinating in their presentation of how potent and visceral the racial divide was (and still is) in parts of our country. On the other hand, at no point is The Best of Enemies remotely cinematic or dramatically interesting. The story being told here is necessary to learn about in 2019, and lead actors Sam Rockwell and Taraji P. Henson are perfectly well-suited to ...

What fulfills our hearts — and makes Jesus Happy

When I look at a Bible a little rough around the edges, I see a life spent with Jesus. Each tear stain, I wonder if it was from desperation or new found hope. Every underline or highlight, is someone putting their trust in the promises of the Word. It’s an expectation of delivery, and not of the UPS kind. It’s guaranteed delivery no matter the storm. It’s a grace to welcome Stephanie Alton as she writes about The Beginner’s Bible on the farm’s front porch today… guest post by Stephanie Alton ...
