Almost everyone is spending more time in the kitchen these days. After all, you can’t spell “pandemic” without “pan.” However, when you cook every day of the week, you run through your recipe repertoire rather rapidly. To the Google machine!

According to Google Trends, online searches for recipes have been trending up since March. That’s not surprising. Food & Wine reports that Sunday appears to be the biggest day for recipe searches. And the recipe “Stay-at-Home” home cooks are searching the most? Banana bread. That makes sense. It’s comforting.

Google Trend’s top 10 recipe-related searches since March 1st:

  1. Banana bread
  2. Pancake
  3. Chicken
  4. Pizza dough
  5. Brownie
  6. Crepe
  7. Meatloaf
  8. French toast
  9. Lasagna
  10. Cheesecake

The last recipe I searched and made is this French Vegetable Tian. It’s a simple and delicious dish from the Provence region of France. Fun to prepare, even better to eat!
