Pumpkin! Halloween! Woohoo! Fall is here! Last week these two terms showed up for the first time among the fastest growing search terms, a signal some cooks are starting to think of fall recipes. Rosh Hashanah was in the mix too, heralding another autumn holiday with important cooking traditions. Add Mexican flavors in a yummy new casserole recipe, and bring out the slow cooker to round out the mix! Both of these were winners among last week’s recipes.
Here are highlights from the past week:
- The #1 new recipe last week was Creamy Chicken Tortilla Bake based on page views and prints
- Creamy Chicken Tortilla Bake also received the largest increase in page views last week
- Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker saw the largest increase in prints week over week

The fastest growing internal search terms week over week included tamale pie, pumpkin bars, leeks, and pumpkin cookies. (I wonder what prompted leek searches?)
Pumpkin was a hit for videos too, with Easy Pumpkin Muffins winning top spot as “new video of the week” based on the most average plays per day the week following release. Other top performing videos (based on week-over-week positive change) included:
