Taco night is always one of my favourite nights for a meal. And no, that isn’t necessarily on a Tuesday either – because, tacos. *drool*When making ours, I have always had both hard shell and soft shell on hand for the kids to choose from. For myself, I have a low-carb taco on most occasions by omitting the shell. Lately my girls have asked for a no-shell variety too, after sneaking tastes of mine as curious kids do – and obviously loving it.
This time of year I rely heavily on my slow cooker and casserole recipes, due to ease and how well they fit into a busy schedule.Â Chicken and Spinach Pasta Casserole isÂ very easy to put together and can be refrigerated until you bake. The chicken, pasta and spinach combine nicely with the cheese to make one great tasty dinner, up there with all the ‘comfort food’ greats.
During the holiday break we spent a lot of time at home and indoors, mainly due to the -40 temperatures but also that post-Christmas humdrum. I know ‘Spring cleaning’ is a thing, but after every Christmas I get the NEED to purge, declutter and organize. I think it’s the take-down of the tree and decorations that being about my end-of-the-year purge, so many areas of our home get a major upheaval to bring it back to that fresh-start feeling.
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".
