Mornings are hard. Whether you have a tiny human or a not-so-tiny dog who wakes you up at 3:30 a.m. because it's time for breakfast, or you're just trying to get all your clothes buttoned right before you rush out the door to work, it can be difficult to find the time to feed yourself. But breakfast is important! Maybe it's not the most important meal of the day — that's up for debate — but eating something means you won't be ready to gnaw your own hand off by 11 a.m. Also, breakfast is delicious.
This past year I've been lucky enough to take Kitchn readers on the road. We've traveled to destinations mostly near and some far; we've peeked into locals' kitchens and picked their brains on the very best places to eat, drink, and shop; and we've filled our bellies with classic dishes and our bags with edible souvenirs. It's been one delicious ride, and I can't think of any better way to look back on 2017 than with our most popular travel recipes.
'Tis the season for holiday parties, which also means 'tis the season for hostess gifts. A nice bottle of wine is safe, but I'd argue there's a bottle that's even better. I'm talking about olive oil — and right now is the perfect time to stock up on a case or two of your favorite brand. Hostess gifts can be tricky. It should feel personal and thoughtful, while still being relatively universal.
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".
