It’s winter. It’s cold. Now is the time for big hearty red wines from the Southern French region of Corbières and Minervois part of Occitanie, formerly known as Languedoc-Roussillon. Cassoulet, the regional signature dish is a classic pairing with the wines of Occitanie. I made a cassoulet for the first time, I was snowbound, and it couldn’t have been more timely. Need a wine and dish to chase the cold away? Look no further than Corbières, Minervois and, cassoulet.
Mexican Shrimp Cocktail paired with a glass of crisp, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc is one of many memories I have from when I lived in Sonoma County. My husband and I had moved to California after living five years in Germany; we were ready for a new adventure and a change of pace. We settled in Healdsburg, just as Healdsburg was emerging on the trendy tourist scene. Within walking distance from our house and my work was a small Mexican restaurant known mostly by the locals.
With Christmas approaching ever closer, this cranberry ginger bread is the perfect breakfast or snack for the holiday season. Not only is it made with fresh cranberries, an ingredient that always says holidays to me, but also crystallized ginger and oats for great flavor. It is unlike any other cranberry bread I have had and immediately was a favorite. Not super sweet, but also not so healthy you feel deprived. The recipe is from Body and Soul magazine, now known as Whole Living.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
