Ever since I was a little girl, baking was my thing: cookies, 4-H award–winning muffins, and TONS of tiny cakes cooked by the lightbulb in my Easy-Bake oven. But when it came to pie, I couldn’t get it right. The crust would crack or I’d overwork the dough or the crimping would look really, really sad. When I was in my early 20s, I learned about a magical dessert called a crostata, which sounds fancy but is just a free-form pie.
Use this rich stuff in Thai-style curries, or whisk the thick cream that rises to the top with a little sugar for a dairy-free whipped cream. A sweet blend that includes coconut, water and sugar, it’s a key ingredient in piña coladas and a delicious addition to pancake batter. Made from the sap of coconut-tree flower buds, coconut sugar tastes like brown sugar and can be used like it. Try it in muffins, or sprinkle on oatmeal.
1. Start by wiggling your fingers between the skin and the meat, creating a pocket. Take it easy! You don’t want to rip the skin. 2. Add some tasty stuff (chopped herbs, garlic and lemon zest; softened butter mixed with smoked paprika) into the pocket you created. 3. Using your fingers, work the stuffing under the skin to flavor the chicken evenly. If you see some lumps, press on the skin to even them out. 4. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven.
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".
