Curds. Creamy, zesty, buttery, not too sweet. A perfect dessert in my books. It doesn’t have to be fancy, but that beautiful, luscious, custard-like filling certainly would welcome any decadent topping idea that you can come up with. But what exactly is a curd? It’s a custard of sorts, one that’s stirred, it doesn’t have any cream or milk, it contains a sugar, butter and lots of egg yolks. And it’s absolutely special.
Thanks to Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauces for sponsoring my post and providing me with product. All opinions are my own. Tailgating is a uniquely American tradition…a practice of gathering, eating and drinking before ones favorite team heads into battle. Tailgating has gotten pretty involved. No longer just sitting on the back of your pickup with a sandwich and a beer, parties have become elaborate entertaining affairs, all taking place in ones parking space.
Making a perfect pie crust is just one of the big take aways from my time spent at Cook Street School of Culinary Arts. And lucky for me, I was taught by one of the best pastry chefs in Denver. And I was trained to make a pie crust and tart shell the classic way, the classic French way. Pate Brisee, (prounced pat bre-say) is an all butter method to make the most tender and flaky pie dough, and it’s as traditional as it gets.
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".
