I’ve got a good one to share with you today guys – Gnocchi with Frizzled Prosciutto and Blue Cheese! Plus, it’ll pair perfectly with Merlot – which is being celebrated throughout the month of October as part of the third annual #MerlotMe event. ?The folks at Wine Pairing Weekend have all put together some of their favorite merlot wine pairings too – Be sure to check them out below! Merlot was one of the first wines that I started off drinking (15 years ago).
As I mentioned in this post, I’m a huge fan of pairing Riesling with foods of all kinds. Because Riesling can range from sweet, to semi-sweet, to bone dry, there’s a variety that can pair with just about any dish. So, I thought, why not have some fun and pair different Rieslings with the different dishes that you’ll traditionally find on the Thanksgiving dinner table.
Now that it’s November – It’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving! I already have visions of stuffing, pumpkin pie and brussels sprouts running through my head. The one thing that I’ve not yet decided on for this year’s feast is the main dish. It may just be the two of us this year, spending a cozy weekend at our beach house. And, with just the two of us, I’m thinking there’s not really a need for a big Thanksgiving turkey.
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".
