We all have those weeks. The weeks when you're so busy, you barely have time to think. The weeks when your life is scheduled down to the minute and just a single misstep will send your whole routine flying. When you're this busy, there's not a lot of time for cooking, so you need the meals you do cook to work double-time. You need dinners that make great leftovers.Sadly, not all of them do. Some recipes don't make enough servings, and some use delicate ingredients that are hard to resuscitate.
I don't love cold weather, but I do love having an excuse to drink hot beverages. So when the temperatures drop, I'm all about making warm winter cocktails. There's just something about warmed-up booze that's so comforting. Take wine, for example. It's fine at room temp, but when you mull it with spices like cloves and cinnamon until it's steaming, it's suddenly so much more cozy. Basically the definition of hygge.Mulled wine isn't the only great hot cocktail out there.
For a long time, I lived under the assumption that you could only make pesto with basil, pine nuts, and Parmesan cheese. If you wanted the famous green sauce, but didn't have one of those ingredients, then you were just straight out of luck.I've since learned that that is very much not the case. What I love about cooking is that it isn't scientific like baking. If you make a cake and mismeasure or use baking soda instead of baking powder, you could end up with something inedible.
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".
