Even the most amateur of cooks know one thing to be absolutely true: everything is better when it's wrapped in bacon. What food wouldn't benefit from the smoky, salty taste of America's favorite pork product? I'll wait. We've wrapped pretty much everything we can think of in bacon. Crackers, pickles, we even wrapped avocado in bacon TWICE! What can we say? We're fiends. Wings are a prime candidate for the bacon treatment.
One of my all time favorite snacks is apple slices and peanut butter. Here in the test kitchen, it's one of our favorite healthy snacks. It's wintertime here on the east coast, and not much fruit is in season so we've been going extra hard on the apples. These peanut butter stuffed apples are sort of a riff on our favorite healthy snack, but don't be fooled. These guys are DECADENT! Start with some halved apples and core them with a melon baller or spoon.
Everyone loves banana pudding. It's a southern staple but its popularity has stretched wayyy beyond the south. We've done about a million iterations of banana pudding, from cookies to dip, we can't get enough of the delicious combination of pudding, whipped cream and bananas. Don't even get me started on Nilla Wafers. They're scientifically designed to be addictive and I can't have them near me without demolishing them.
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".
