Regular readers know I have a fondness for cake -- well any sweet really, but especially cake. So I was delighted to receive a copy of Cake, I Love You: Decadent, Delectable and Do-Able Recipes by Jill O'Connor. This book is filled with cakes I want to eat. These are not ordinary cakes. And despite the word "do-able" in the title, these are not whip-up-at-a-moment's-notice cakes either. Take the Lemon Bomb, for example, this cake is a lemon-lovers dream.
The turkey isn't even cooked yet, and we're already thinking about what we're going to make with all of the leftovers. Sure you can always enjoy seconds and thirds of the full Thanksgiving spread. And then there are sandwiches and soup. But if you're not one for eating the same thing again and again and you've got plenty of leftover turkey come Friday, the following recipes will help make use of every last bit of meat while still feeling and tasting like a whole new dish.
It's the day before Thanksgiving. Did you transfer your turkey from the freezer to the refrigerator? If not, don't panic. You just need to adjust your game plan. Instead of a slow thaw in the refrigerator, the turkey will require a more hands-on approach. To safely thaw it, submerge the turkey in cold water and soak, changing the water every half-hour, allowing 30 minutes per pound. So a 12-pound turkey will take about 6 hours to thaw.
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".
