To everything, there is a season. I know this as a cook and as a columnist. I have featured 538 Kansas City area home cooks in more than 10 years, and it seems only fitting that I write my last Come Into My Kitchen column as the 62nd year of a weekly feature started on Nov. 7, 1955, draws to a close. (Come Into My Kitchen will continue on, however.) It is said that every photograph taken is also a self-portrait of the photographer.
Erin Bassett cultivates garden produce and relationships with school-aged children as the culinary instructor with Cornerstones of Care’s Healthy Living and Food Systems program. Part of a not-for-profit organization, this program encourages hundreds of grade- and high-schoolers to work on three acres of gardens at two Kansas City sites to plant, weed, water, harvest and cook produce they grow. Q: What exactly is this Cornerstones of Care program?
“Bird” is the operative word when it comes to Lisa Robinson’s cooking. Eggs are a staple in the diet of the Robinson brood — husband Greg and 23-year-old son Dylan — thanks to the New Hampshire Red chickens (like Matilda in the photograph) and guinea fowl. Robinson takes pride in living on 14 agriculturally zoned acres in Kansas City and growing some of her family’s food.
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".
