Welcome to a new weekly post featuring news about Allrecipes’ videos. We decided it was time our substantial—and growing—video collection had a stand-alone post since they’re a significant source of engagement for our community. They’re also knockouts on small screensl! In the post, I’ll recap the previous week’s hits and highlights, what’s new, what stands out, and the top performers from the previous week. Things are happening!
For the week ending 8/4/13, there were a total of 1,528,682 video plays. Here’s a recap of the biggest hits. Notice that zucchini earned a place in both Top 5 categories. A lot of home cooks out there were seeking inspiration for using this prolific squash, along with summer’s bounty of fresh fruit and veggies. Watch the videos for preparing blueberry and peach cobblers and you’ll rush to your nearest farmers’ market. You can even learn how to make homemade vanilla ice cream to top the cobblers. I like it!

A Few Standout VideosHave you ever tried making butter? It’s surprisingly easy, especially when you have a video to show you how—and now Allrecipes’ home cooks do. It’s one of our very newest published videos, for which we don’t have metrics yet. I'm calling them out because they’re interesting, seasonal, topical, “blockbustery,” or in some way fun or noteworthy.
