Pound cake first originated in Europe in the first half of the 18th century, according to PopSugar, and was given its name because the original recipe required a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. Many modern-day recipes still preserve the 1:1:1:1 ratio, but Martha Stewart notes that if you simply combine those ingredients, your loaf will turn out too dense.
Sunday dinner is a special time for loved ones to gather and enjoy each other’s company over a delicious, sit-down meal. Such an honored tradition deserves dishes that are more refined than a typical weeknight meal, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend the whole day making them. These seven Sunday night dinner recipes can be made in less than an hour, but will look and taste like you spent all day preparing them.
For many kids, summer is a time to run, play, swim, and partake in camps. All of that activity means your little ones will need snacks to keep them fueled throughout the day. Processed store-bought foods lack the nutrients your kids need, but the last thing you want to do on a hot summer day is turn on your oven and bake hot homemade snacks. The solution: Prepare no-bake recipes for your little ones.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
