The daffodils are blooming, which means spring is about to grace this blessed Bay. It also means that we’ve suffered through the cold, wet and hail of winter — yeah, it wasn’t too bad this year, but I think we could all use some chocolate cake for our trouble. And this is close to the Platonic ideal. One bowl, uncomplicated ingredients, a funky buttermilk twist and rich, dark Dutch cocoa powder make for one hell of a decadent slice.
Making cookies and brownies from scratch has never been my favorite thing (except these) — they usually taste better from the box, anyway. One look at the mile-long ingredient list for chocolate chip cookies is enough to throw in the towel. There’s an easier way to experience unadulterated decadence with only six ingredients, one of which is a pinch of salt, plus ice cream, if you’re savvy: molten lava cakes.
Chocolate and orange continue their torrid love affair this Valentine’s Day in these rich brownie cookies. They’re soft and gooey on the inside and crispy, chewy on the outside, studded with bashful white chocolate chips and roasty toasty macadamia nuts. Normally, I’m not too concerned with exact measurements, but I highly recommend getting a scale ($10 on Amazon!) for baking because it really takes all the difficulty out of precision.
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".
