This is a pretty simple recipe, and my kids love it. I love homemade soups because they are fast, nutritious, and well liked by our entire family. Plus, they only get better the next day, which makes soup great for lunchtime leftovers. Most store-bought broths have gluten in them, so it's important to label read if you're buying pre-made broth or bouillon. This time of year I like to make our own broth. It's super easy and so nutritious.
I recently contributed ideas and recipes to an article promoting healthier school lunches for kids. This is an area that I'm passionate about, and one that I've struggled with as a mom. I know how difficult it is to get your kids to eat healthy when they're at school. For learning purposes, you want to make sure they have enough fuel to get them through a long and active day. What I've come to realize over the last couple of years is a balanced approach is best.
Thanksgiving has quickly come and gone, but I'm just getting in to warmer spices and root vegetables. I do love this time of year as we reap the rewards of the harvest. If you haven't been to one of our local farmer's markets, you must make a point of it. The colours are gorgeous. We're pretty lucky to have so many local growers, producers, and makers at our markets. I get my pumpkin from Circle Organics (Millbrook farmers who attend both the Wednesday and the Saturday markets).
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".
