Do you have a favorite recipe published last year in the Journal Sentinel? Our writers and testers had plenty. From appetizers to soups, salads to drinks and, of course, luscious desserts, they contributed enough “best recipes” to cover every week of 2018. The recipes in this collection may not all please your particular tastes, but each one is guaranteed to be delicious. (Note: Recipes from our annual Holiday Cookie Contest are not included.)
Several readers sent in recipes for fruitcakes served every year at the holidays, some with the classic candied fruits and citron, others with dried fruits such as figs, raisins and dates. Only one sent in a gumdrop cake. “It’s an old, old recipe but we had it every year for Christmas,” said Sharon L. Honisch of West Allis.
Neva Rublee of Hartford sent in the family’s meatball recipe for a crowd. “This recipe was handed down through generations,” she wrote. “It was always served at Christmas with lutefisk. We are Norwegian.”It’s actually her husband’s family’s recipe. They both grew up in the Colfax area of Wisconsin (near Eau Claire). Along with meatballs and lutefisk, the annual Christmas meal also featured rosettes, rutabagas and potatoes — “all the traditional foods.”Rublee’s husband, Robert, loves lutefisk.
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".
