Back in 1999, I shared my favorite roast turkey recipe with City Weekly readers, and since then, I've been gratified by the positive responses from those who've tried it. So, with Thanksgiving lurking just around the corner, here again is my can't-miss turkey recipe for your holiday meal (or any other time). Enjoy! I prefer unbasted, natural, free-range birds. If you buy a frozen turkey, let it defrost in the fridge for two or three days.
Thanksgiving Helpers It's the foodie-est holiday of the year, and most of us will be spending it at home with family. If, however, you're considering a different way to approach Thanksgiving, many local restaurants and food proprietors are offering great ways to dine on the town or provide the guests at your table with easy, delicious options.
You might have noticed that many lagers and ales on the market are starting to skew to the heavier side of the beer spectrum. Besides robust and full-bodied flavors, the higher alcohol content in certain beers creates a perfect storm for aging. For the most part, beer does not age well. The fermented grain beverages we enjoy are far more delicate than their alcohol-infused grape- or apple-based cousins. Like bread, these liquids are best when fresh, and have a comparatively short shelf life.
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".
