NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 29, 2018--There are dozens of food trends that make headlines every year (artisan condiments, gut-friendly foods, etc.), and associated recipes are viewed across print, broadcast, mobile and desktop every day. But what are America’s home cooks actually cooking?

JustAPinch.com, a true vertical social network around food and recipes, has the pulse of America’s home cooks. The site has millions of members, all home cooks (a true representative sample of the US population), that post, pinch (save), share, rate, and confirm cooking recipes through the millions of cloud-based recipe boxes they control across virtually any food or recipe site on the internet. These home cooks have collected over 650,000 unique recipes, making it one of the largest repositories of user-posted recipes on the internet.

JustAPinch.com, using a proprietary algorithm, is releasing the recipes most saved, viewed, shared, rated and cooked in home cook’s cloud-based recipe boxes for the first half of 2018.  This gives real insight into the recipes that are being viewed, shopped for and actually cooked in these home kitchens, and representative of the type of recipes similarly being cooked across the country. Internet search traffic for recipes only highlights viewing trends, but when millions of home cooks directly engage with and ultimately save a recipe in their own personal recipe box, it demonstrates a purposeful intent to cook.

From Jan. 1-June 30, 2018 here are JustAPinch.com’s Top 10 most popular and cooked Recipes from around the Internet:

Key Lime Poundcake with Key Lime Cream Cheese Icing Recipe from food blog  Lemon Butter Baked Cod Recipe from home cook Hawaiian Ham Roll Sliders Recipe from home cook Apple Dapple Cake Recipe from food blog  Green Beans, Chicken Breast & Red Skin Potatoes Recipe from home cook Hamburger Sausage Broccoli Alfredo Recipe from home cook Cheesy Garlic Pasta Recipe from food blog  Tater Tot Casserole Recipe from home cook Parmesan Baked Pork Chops Recipe from home cook Cassie’s Comforting Chicken & Noodles Recipe from home cook

Food trends come and go, but America's home cooks are focused on providing great, tasty meals for their families. Time and ease of preparation, expense, taste and presentation are many of the factors home cooks consider in creating meals. While comfort food, casseroles and desserts often top the list of home cook’s most popular and actually cooked dishes, unique recipe trends always emerge throughout different seasons, holidays, events and the year.

What’s really being cooked in home kitchens the rest of 2018? Watch for our announcements and stay connected with us as we will provide quarterly updates, and regular monthly, seasonal, and holiday trending recipes saved and cooked by home cooks across the US.
