You can find pre-mixed za’atar spice mixes at the store, but it is so much fun to mix up your own at home that’s tailored to your specific tastes. Here’s a basic recipe with ideas for how to adjust it. I am a long-time fan of za’atar, a flavorful Middle Eastern spice blend. When I was a kid, my family used to go to a restaurant in south Florida where they’d bring you warm, crusty bread with za’atar-spiced olive oil for dipping.
You might not think of winter as a bountiful fruit season, but there are quite a few fruits that are available during the coldest months. Here are a few common winter fruits and their health benefits. Some of the winter fruits below grow during winter months, while others are fall fruits you can naturally store well into the winter months. What they have in common is that they’re readily available all winter long, just when your body needs a boost of vitamins and minerals to fight the winter ick.
Do you like red wine but not red wine that was filtered through fish bladders? Check out my top three vegan wine picks for under $20! You know what’s sort of a bummer about having an app to tell me if the wine I like is vegan? I get to learn that many wines are not vegan. The list of vegan below is going to seem short. There are three wines on there. But let me tell you: this is the result of lots of awkward time spent standing in the wine aisle looking up wines on the Vegaholic app.
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".
