People want to know what everyone else in the country is up to these days. It’s why we watch the news, set up Google Alerts, and follow social media outlets such as Twitter and Pinterest with vigor. By learning what others around them are interested in, Americans are motivated to venture out and try new things.

This is more the case than ever in the world of food and cooking. When a chef adds a new sous vide recipe to their menu, everyone starts to take notice and before long, people are sous viding and compressing in their own kitchens. Or if a new cookbook author discovers kale and how to cook it so that it actually tastes good, soon thereafter kale chips are on the shelves at every popular grocery store. The culinary industry is constantly evolving, as new cooking techniques are developed and new ingredients are discovered, and as editors at The Daily Meal, we’re constantly wondering what our nation is craving.

So what did America crave over the past year? To come up with the answer, we took a look at the foundation of cooking: recipes, the starting point of every dish we have created and enjoyed for years. Without a record of ingredients, the amounts to use, and instruction for how to use them, popular and common food dishes would not be available to us today, and the world of cooking as we know it could not evolve into new and exciting trends.

To find what the most searched for recipes were this year, we broke it down to the ingredients and set out to discover America's most popular foods. By using data collected from common food searches at The Daily Meal and many of the country’s other leading search engines, we were able to develop a comprehensive list of the most searched food terms of 2012. From there, we dove even deeper into our research to find out not only what foods the country was craving, but what people wanted to do with those foods. By using average monthly searches for highly searched recipes, we crafted a unique algorithm that weighted The Daily Meal searches against other search engines to yield a search score for each recipe that would help us rank the recipes. We even had a little help from our friends over at Pinterest who helped us develop a list of the most searched recipes. By starting with popular ingredients, we were able to come up with a comprehensive list of the most popular recipes searched for over the past year.

The dishes that fell under the top 25 most searched recipes can tell us a lot about who we are as a country and what trends exist in the home kitchen. While chicken ranked as the most searched food term in one of the most popular search engines, baked chicken came out as the top searched chicken recipe, proving that we desire basic foods and a simple method for enjoying them. On the flip side, egg was another popular food searched for, but deviled eggs came out as the most sought-after egg recipe, demonstrating that long-practiced and common recipes such as scrambled eggs or fried eggs require little research and information, and people are sometimes looking to make something a little out of the ordinary with basic ingredients.

In may come as no surprise (considering America's growing obesity epidemic) that fattening foods such as cupcakes, chocolate, and cookies dominate the most popular food searches. And even when healthy ingredients are searched, such as apples, salad, and bananas, they're translated into indulgent dishes such as apple pie, pasta salad, and banana bread, leading us to conclude that our country’s obesity problem could be caused by what we’re cooking (and craving) in our home kitchens in addition to the popular fast-food chains.

No matter what conclusions can be drawn from the list of most popular recipes, it's clear that we as a country are creatures of habit and that there are many themes that remain constant throughout the recipe searches. While some recipes are shocking, and others not that surprising, we hope that this list inspires home cooks across the country to get into the kitchen, start cooking, and continue the never-ending quest for recipes.

America’s Most Popular Recipes of 2012 - Recipes

Ordering shots at the bar can really add up and be quite a shock when its time to close the tab. Another option is to invite all your friends over and make your favorite shots at home. The bar scene can be fun until that guy pukes on your shoes or the guys next to you start a fight pushing your girlfriend to the ground. Sometimes hanging out at home is more fun and you can make all your favorite shots from the bar.

This infographic has recipes for 30 of the most popular shots. Whether your celebrating a bachelor party with a “buttery nipple” or St. Patrick’s Day with a “shamrocked” shot, these recipes have got you covered. I know that when I have people over we always try to remember what is in our favorite shots and try to make then. Now we can, thanks to this convenient infographic.

Each shot is shown with an image and the title as well as what is included in each shot. Save this infographic because I am sure you are going to be using at your next party or maybe even a family gathering. Remember to know your limit.

My favorite is a Woo Woo and then the Kamikaze. What’s yours? This drinking infographic was created by Don Bullach.

Our 10 Most Popular Recipes of 2020

From main dishes to sweet treats, here are the recipes Food & Wine readers loved the most this year.

If anything good came out of 2020, it was the things that came out of our ovens. We&aposll never forget the banana breads, sourdough loafs, and ambitious roasts we prepared to stave off anxiety during a year we are now desperate to leave behind.

If you plan to stay busy with cooking projects this winter, as we do, we rounded up the most popular recipes we published this year, from birria tacos to creamy crab carbonara.

1. Birria Tacos

Claudette Zepeda&aposs take on succulent, tender birria tacos was the most clicked-on recipe we published this year, and for good reason: They&aposre perfect.

2. Hong Kong Milk Tea Tiramisu

Top Chef All-Stars winner Melissa King uses a concentrated powdered black tea to add complexity to this rich, subtly sweet tiramisu.

3. Summer Crab Carbonara with Lemon and Capers

This creamy, bright take on carbonara was our unofficial dish of the summer, all thanks to Best New Chef Douglass Williams.

4. Lemon Blueberry Cake with Lemon-Zest Glaze

We like to eat this rich treat for breakfast, but it also makes an indulgent dessert.

5. Honey Pepper Coconut Shrimp

Although his breading technique at Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack in Asheville is a closely guarded secret, chef Rich Cundiff shared this riff on his coconut shrimp exclusively with Food & Wine.

6. Brown-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Melting butter in a skillet until it&aposs golden brown and nutty lends these chewy cookies an irresistible depth of flavor.

7. Northern Standard

This full-flavored, Manhattan-like cocktail got one of our writer&aposs through this year: "I dream of returning to my favorite seat at the bar, in the far-right corner by the fireplace, the best spot for people-watching and gossiping with the bartenders. Until then, I’ll make my Northern Standards at home. They’ll get me through like they always do."

8. One-Pot White Wine Pasta with Mushrooms and Leeks

If there was ever a year we needed one-pot recipes, it was 2020. This rich, earthy pasta is the perfect low-lift weeknight dinner.

9. Venetian Shrimp Polenta

David McCAnn recreated one of the best meals he&aposs ever eaten—schie con polenta in Venice—so we can all enjoy it at home.

10. Potato Bacon and Cheddar Tart

Make sure to save the extra bacon drippings for toast, basting roasted chicken, or for making cornbread.
