In my utensil crock at home, I have 10 spatulas. And the thing is, I actually use all of them, from my fish spatula ( pancakes !) to my offset spatula ( frosting a cake !). I get strangely attached to my spatulas—and wooden spoons for that matter—they are like my kitchen children, each with their own special skill and traits. But if I had to start voting spatulas off the island, I know that my lavender silicone GIR mini-spatula would be one of the last ones standing.
We've all had the Sad Dinner. The kind of dinner that you're eating for health reasons, or just because it's what's in your fridge and you can't muster the strength to go to the grocery store. One shouldn't be ashamed of the Sad Dinner—it's an inevitability. But these three dressings can save the Sad Dinner. They can make that almost-too-wilty lettuce still taste good. They can give a boring chicken breast some life. They will transform Sad Dinner to Halfway Decent Dinner.
Is it weird to want to drink clam broth? Actually, I don't care. This recipe for chile-lime clams with tomatoes and grilled bread produces an elixir too good not to sip. In this recipe, beer, sambal oelek, tomato paste, and the juices from the clams come together to make liquid gold. Here was my approach last Tuesday if you would like to follow suit:Put a large t-shirt on over your dress so you don't get stains. But still wear the dress because actually changing just feels like too much effort.
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 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
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".
