Since Valentine's Day falls in the middle of the week this year, there's a pretty good chance you have a few other things vying for your attention. So if you don't have time to wrap your head around what you're cooking for dinner until, say, Valentine's Day afternoon, know you're going to be OK.
These swing of the weather can be really confusing for a cook. On the one hand, we're psyched for salads and iced coffee, but then there are days when it's pouring rain and you're freezing. Enter: coq au vin (chicken stewed in wine). On those chilly days, I scour my pantry for enough of the ingredients to make a dish that passes for a classic coq au vin — chicken thighs, dried porcini mushrooms, a red onion, pancetta, and red wine. What I didn't have was time.
A Dutch oven is a beautiful thing. Its heavy weight means food cooks evenly, whether on the stovetop or in the oven. It's perfect for soups such as lemon potato chowder, stews such as white bean and chicken sausage, or no-knead bread. While a Dutch oven technically doesn't have to be enameled steel, most are these days, meaning it can bring a welcome pop of color to a sea of stainless steel. Dutch ovens are perfect for making soup.

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".
