You think you know how to roast a chicken, don’t you? So did I. But there are particular methods to make a great roasted chicken at home. Thanks to Emma Christensen of TheKitchn.com, we have five steps that she uses. First, wipe the chicken dry with paper towels. It will help make a crisper skin. Don’t rinse the chicken in the sink. That may help spread bacteria, which almost all chicken has. Just pat it dry inside and out. Then be generous with the salt.
After all this holiday food indulgence, sometimes you need a simple dish to get your eating back on track. Fried eggs seem to be those perfectly easy things to cook. They’re fast, uncomplicated and basic. But you can go terribly wrong, ending up with a crunchy egg white and a dry or broken yolk. Not good. Here’s how to do them right, according to James Briscione of the Institute of Culinary Education. First, make sure the pan is the right size.
Christmas gift giving can be a challenge. You never know what people can use, if it will fit, or if it’s the right color. But everyone needs stuff for the kitchen. Here are a few ideas that anyone will appreciate. • Pyrex food storage containers last forever. I still have the Pyrex kitchen ware I bought in the ’70s. These containers will go into the oven, freezer, microwave, or dishwasher. And they won’t stain, peel, or crack. The snap-on lids seal everything securely. • Decent knives are a requirement.
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".
