It's surprising how many hard-fast, nit-picky rules there are for such a relaxed, no-fuss food as the humble hot dog. It's just a casual American wiener, so what's the big whoop? The whoop is huge, however, and it is multi-faceted.
We must confess: After an informal survey at the office and beyond, we discovered some of us (we're not naming names) - who love to cook - weren't 100-percent clear on the difference between chicken stock and broth.

Naan and pita look so similar. But ... not quite. Look closer. One is fluffy, bubbly, and often oval-shaped.

Those are the two most noticeable differences between naan and pita - both round, slightly leavened wheat flatbreads.
There's one team that everyone roots for, whether your eyes are glued to the game or you're more focused on those fantastic commercials, and that's Team Food. Not sure where to start when it comes to planning the perfect Super Bowl Party?
Your huge, heavy winter squash lands with a thud on the kitchen counter. How do you make this thing into food--without muttering expletives, making a mess, and possibly slicing off a finger? True, these bad boys can be stubborn with your knife, refusing to yield into smooth slices or shed their skin.
When it comes to overcoming any challenge, it helps to have the advice and support of someone who's been through it. We don't want to hear diet tips from someone who has never struggled with saying no to a second helping, that bowl of fudgy, marshmallowy ice cream or heaping pile of creamy mashed potatoes.
What was sweet is now savory. The former Cupcake Kitchen space in Irvington has been transformed into Wolfert's Roost, a relaxed, family-friendly restaurant. It opened Nov. 20. Chef-owner Eric Korn, along with chef Jennie Werts, created a menu of simple, comforting dishes divided into four categories: salads, medium plates, large plates and big bowls.
By Amy Sowder Opened in August in northern Westchester, The Hudson Room is a chef's restaurant, using organic ingredients with gluten-free options.

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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama +Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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.
