The past 40 days have been different to say the least. Different than at any other time. We’ve all been home a lot more than normal. Eating at home a lot more than normal. Cooking a lot more than normal. Going to the grocery store a lot less than normal.
So because of all this un-normalness going on I thought it would be interesting to pull up stats to see which recipes have been viewed a lot more than normal. I wanted to see what people were making the most with the foods that they have at home in their pantries and freezers.
Here are the recipes with the biggest percentage increase over the last month or so…
