When my sister and I decided to go to Ireland, we wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to stay in a castle. Ireland has several castles that have been turned into hotels, and we chose to stay at Lough Eske in Donegal. We picked Lough Eske because its location on the North West side of the country gave us the opportunity to drive through Northern Ireland visiting historic sites and natural wonders on our way to Dublin.
Figs with Blue Cheese and Balsamic Reduction are an easy and elegant appetizer that can be prepared in just minutes. Figs and blue cheese are a classic flavor combination and rich syrupy balsamic vinegar is the perfect way to enhance their bold flavors. Figs are in season right now and fresh figs are such a treat. Fig season only lasts a couple months, so I always try to get them while I can, and this recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat figs.
I created this recipe for Pear and Blue Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin three years ago and today I am revisiting it and updating it. This is an incredible meal that comes together quickly. Pork tenderloin is butterflied and filled with white wine poached pears, shallots, blue cheese, and rosemary. The tenderloin is seared and then roasted in white wine and chicken broth that mix with the pan drippings to create a flavorful sauce.
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".
