Thursday is the big waist-busting, multi-dish, soup-to-pie-and-more-pie feast. The day after? Clearly, your Thanksgiving guests did not stuff themselves enough. Nor did they take home enough care packages. So, what in the world are you going to do with – yikes! – all those leftovers? "Not everyone has chickens running outside like we do," says Meg Nobile, owner of the 5-year-old Fresh and Fancy Farms in New Milford, who can feed those birds whatever scraps are left after a meal.
Last month, The Record and northjersey.com asked readers to tell us their worst kitchen disaster story. The reader with the most disastrous story would win a free cooking lesson and a $200 gift certificate . We received more than 100 submissions detailing calamitous and hysterical kitchen mishaps (many microwaves destroyed; lots of kitchen fires started).
Chef Robbie Felice of highly venerated modern Italian restaurant Viaggio vowed that he will never serve the kinds of "faux-Italian" dishes served in many red-sauce Italian restaurants. Dishes like penne alla vodka, fettuccine alfredo, chicken parmesan. On Dec. 3, however, Felice is going to cook those "forbidden" dishes "for fun." Said Felice, "Those are not real Italian dishes. It's not real. They don't have that in Italy."
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".
