Starting with football season and rounding that corner into the Holidays, we find ourselves on appetizer overload. Small bites, dips, chips, spreads and cheeses. We’re officially in hand held snacking mode. This past week I had the opportunity to partner with Mezzetta Marinara Sauces. Have you tried them? If not, put them on your list for you next trip to the grocery store. They offer so many unique flavor combos, check it our at their site.
I tried a new lasagne recipe for Christmas Eve dinner this year.Â It’s a no boil lasagna with regular noodles. A huge hit, delicious and more flavorful than my stand-by recipe.Â Â Also loved the easier no-boil noodle process. I don’t know about you, but boiling those noodles can be a pesky proposition. And it’s a great recipe that can be made the day before to be oven ready. Thanks to Larry and Bev for this lasagnaÂ recipe.
Steaming fish in parchment is a tasty and healthy way to enjoy seafood. Outstanding flavor is just one of the benefits of cooking with this method. It’s also a great way to entertain. The parchment paper pouches can be prepared a few hours in advance and kept in the refrigerator until time to cook. With everything prepared in advance, it’s easy on you as the host and clean up is a breeze. And it’s fun for your guests as they tear open their own special meal.
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".
