‘The Mosquito Coast’ Director and Melissa George on Revealing Margot’s Agency

In the two versions of “The Mosquito Coast” that came before the Apple TV Plus drama (the 1981 novel and the 1986 film adaptation), the character of Allie Fox’s wife and mother to his children was just that and that alone: a wife and mother. But the series, which is being treated as a prequel […]

Becoming by Looking Toward Jesus

‘Twas the week of the book launch, and everything was a bit crazy — stressful even. I was torn between wanting to do my best work and the deep desire to surrender to whatever God had in store. It was exciting, overwhelming, and a little disorienting.  So naturally, during the busiest work week I’ve ever had, we decided to take a trip.  My sister was home and wanted to go to our grandparents’ cabin a few hours north. We didn’t want to miss out, and I couldn’t think of a healthier way to foll...

Mathilde: Minimalist Linen Quilts, Made in Rhode Island

Quilts—particularly of the vintage American variety—are having a moment, as Margot noted back in February (see Trend Alert: The Great American Patchwork Quilt Comeback). As it turns out, it’s not just antique versions that are having a resurgence: The quilt is also getting a minimalist, modern makeover for the 2021 era. Or so we’ve come to believe after stumbling upon the work of Claudia Middendorf. A San Francisco native, Claudia studied at California College of the Arts and RISD before establi...

‘Good on Paper’ Trailer: Iliza Shlesinger’s New Boyfriend May Not Be What He Seems

There’s a long cinematic tradition of comedians making movies based on events in their own lives, from Woody Allen to Judd Apatow. Now we can add Iliza Shlesinger to that group, because she has written and stars in a new movie called Good on Paper that’s “based on a mostly true story” about a boyfriend she had (played by Veronica Mars actor Ryan Hansen) who may not be exactly who he appears. Check out the trailer below. Good on Paper Trailer I had somehow never heard of Shlesinger until ...

Comment on banana puddings with vanilla bean wafers by Margot

Wonderful recipe, as always! I found that a little extra salt made the custard a bit more tasty, but perhaps if you made the wafers (instead of my lazy Nilla wafer version) the extra salt wouldn’t be necessary. I also thought it might be helpful here to mention for the beginner custard makers among us (I would identify myself as such) that this mixture really does need to be heated to very close to boiling (at least 200 degrees but higher is also ok). This is because egg yolks contain an enzyme ...

Angels’ bullpen melts down, spoils Andrew Heaney’s gem

ANAHEIM — The limited capacity at Angel Stadium turned out to be a blessing for the Angels on Thursday night. The boos aren’t quite as loud when there are only 8,840 fans there. Frustrated Angels fans let their team feel their frustration as they gave up seven runs in the eighth inning of an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. On a night that Andrew Heaney pitched 6-2/3 scoreless innings and Shohei Ohtani hit his team-leading 10th home run, the Angels still saw their losing streak stretch to five ga...

Kitchen of the Week: A Sunny-Hued Kitchen in Copenhagen for an Art Director

More sloppy defense costs Angels in loss to Rays

ANAHEIM — The Angels’ surprising defensive issues were on display in all their ugliness on Tuesday night. Four more Angels errors – increasing their major league-leading total to 29 in 28 games – led to three unearned runs on their way to an 8-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. The Angels also lost a player for the second straight night because of a foul ball off his knee. Justin Upton suffered a right knee contusion in the same way that Anthony Rendon did on Monday, although Upton’s didn’t look near...

Remodelista editor Fan Winston discovered Swedish-born, London-based interior designer Beata Heuman a while back (see: A Rising Star’s Spirited London Home: ‘Every Room Should Sing!’), and we all became obsessed (see Margot’s post A Colorful Small-Space in London). Heuman founded her studio in 2013 after working for renegade, over-the-top London designer Nicky Haslam for nine years (she says he taught her to “not give a jot about what anyone thinks”). Her rise has been swift; she’s designed inte...

Sebastian Stan and Denise Gough marvel over ‘Monday’ romance, Disney+ franchises

Sebastian Stan knows that most moviegoers know him as Captain America’s pal Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier, a character who in the last decade has appeared in seven movies and is now the subject of a TV series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But while the superhero blockbuster ride is great, and given the recent success of the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” not likely to end soon, that’s not all there is to know of him and the work he’s done. “I mean, look, I love...

Experience: I carried a twin in each of my wombs

The medical staff had never seen anything like it. They told us the chances were one in 50 millionThe day I gave birth, there were 24 people in the room, most of them fascinated medical students.

Painting and Dress Up With Josie

Meema got me my own paints. We worked on painting together.  I did pictures in a painting book about trolls and then I made shapes on a piece of Meema's paper. We are a team. I make a shape and Meema draws on it with black ink. Sometimes she adds more color but that's okay because I can share. After that it was time to go to The Room and play dress up. I made this fancy  hat and Meema told me that my great great great grandmother whose name was Alice was a milliner, which is...
