What is it about cheese? Doesn’t matter what the season is, cheese in all its delicious variations is a year-round favorite, especially for Allrecipes’ home cooks. It’s certainly a runaway favorite as this week’s top new recipe: Home-Fried Cheese Sticks, which made a splash in page views, prints, and recipe box saves. I really like the cook’s recommendation to make two batches. One for now, one for later. Yum!
I bet you could serve Cheese Sticks with summer soups, too. A seasonal fave—gazpacho—hit the top of the charts this week as well. Then came cookies by the batch: peanut butter, triple chocolate, plus homemade vanilla ice cream. That’s the cook I want to live next door to!
In case you think cheese sticks and desserts were the only thing on the charts, home cooks were also preparing kale salads (Yes! Kale is still hot!), green bean casseroles, and garlicky shrimp.
Here’s the line-up for this week’s top recipes.
