Casseroles are pure comfort. They may not be the healthiest option, but when you dig into one topped with bubbling cheese (you’ve gotta have cheese), you know you’re in for a good bite. Casseroles are nice because they are usually fairly easy and leftovers are good. There’s still enough winter to make these delicious dishes. I created the Creamy Chicken Artichoke Tortellini Casserole last week and it is a wow-zer. It’s also unbelievably easy. The recipe was inspired by artichoke dip.
I’ve been to Vespa Kitchen for brunch, but recently I tried it for lunch and fell in love with a sandwich. Vespa Kitchen opened last spring and is owned by Pat Duran, who also owns the adjoining Metropolitan Grill. While Metropolitan Grill offers fine dining, Vespa Kitchen is more of a laid-back, semi-gourmet diner serving up comfort food with a twist. It’s open for breakfast and lunch, Wednesday through Sunday.
This column was inspired by frugality. Grapes have been on sale lately so I’ve been stocking up and bought more than we could eat, so I ended up creating several recipes to utilize the fruit. For my daughter, I crafted a grape dessert pizza. It’s an easy recipe and a lot of fun. You simply stir powdered sugar and vanilla together with cream cheese, spread it on pita, and top it with sliced grapes.
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".
