What did we want to eat this year? A Google exec was on the Today show this morning recapping top searches for 2009. Called "Google Zeitgeist" by the company, it shows what Americans are interested in during the year.
When it comes to recipes, we’re clearly in a comfort-food mode. The most popular searches were: chili, meatloaf, cheesecake, banana bread, and pancakes.
I thought it was interesting that more than nine million of us wanted to make chili. But then my most recent recipe search was for chicken-noodle soup. I was looking for a variation of my own.
In the bigger picture, the top overall searches were for Lady Gaga and swine flu. This stuff fascinates me. You can find more information on the morning show’s website.
