What’s Been Cooking? Our Favorite August Recipes

Hi, everyone! Are you ready to say goodbye to summer? Have you gotten out your slow cooker yet? (Some of us never put those puppies away!) Are you secretly glad—if you have kids—that school is starting up again?
This is Judith D. writing this week. As summer turns into fall, I thought it would be fun to find out what the most popular recipes were in August, so we investigated to see which were looked at most. Lots of us were gardening and canning, plus there are all the seasonal fruits and veggies to take advantage of. Did someone say “zucchini bread”?!
Just for fun we compared the top 10 recipes in 2009 with the top 10 recipes for 2008. You’ll laugh seeing what’s at the top of the list for both years.
Did we miss anything? What was YOUR favorite summer recipe? And what’s the first thing you make or bake when fall arrives?

The favorite in our house in August was Panzanella salad with garden tomatoes.

I do have to say the Panzanella salad was my summer favorite as well. As was the gazpacho. Nice a cool.

For us summer is about smoking, (our meats you know), ribs,salmon,chicken and pork for pulled pork sandwiches. The fall means stuffed cabbage and peppers. Also preparing for our 10th annual bonfire.

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
