This time of year we enjoy a sense of renewal and a shiny new year. It’s a chance to rebalance what has been aside to enjoy the indulgences of the holiday season. For many, lunch looks a bit different: more greens and low on carbs; healthy becomes the new norm. Perhaps exercise is part of your new year. Here, we are detoxing the kitchen as well as the fridge.
The new year is quickly approaching and the elves are getting some much needed rest in the Never Enough Thyme kitchen. We are looking forward to ringing in the new year with lots of entertaining appetizers to make a stress-free night for the host. This past year has been amazing, full of growth, fun and a fabulous team to work with every day. We work together in a small space creating lots of food for families and companies all over the region.
Part of the holiday rush is the joy of entertaining, though it’s not easy for everyone. But there are strategies to help throw a party with a minimum of stress. For many, calling a caterer can seem intimidating but during the weeks before Christmas we spend most of our day helping people entertain their family and friends – lots of people just need a little help. A few appetizers, baking or dinner ideas to supplement what you are comfortable making.
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".
