Blueberries, apples, tomatoes and green beans captivated Allrecipes’ home cooks last week (9/5 to 9/11/2014). Turned into favorites like casseroles, crisps and cake, they’re a delicious way to celebrate the end of summer. The first searches for pumpkin dip and Halloween recipes also appeared, clues to the next holiday already on some cooks’ minds. Here are the week’s highlights:
- Melt in Your Mouth Blueberry Cake had the largest week-over-week increase in Recipe Box saves

The Week’s Top Search Terms
Are there pumpkins piled into bins yet at your local grocery store? They’re showing up in many spots, along with end aisle caps featuring pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie mix, all which are no doubt inspiring home cooks to search for pumpkin dip recipes. This was the fastest growing week-over-week search term driving traffic to the site last week. Other fast growing search terms driving traffic to the site included pear honey recipe, slow cooker beef stew recipe, spaghetti sauce from fresh tomatoes, and—for dessert fans—a luscious white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.
Last week’s fastest growing week-over-week internal search terms also indicate home cooks are in an autumn groove. They included chicken wild rice soup, pumpkin dip, Halloween recipes, and pizza dip.
