Peach lovers of the world are united! And they adore Chef John, of Food Wishes fame. This week’s runaway top recipe was Chef John’s Peach Cobbler, perfect for enjoying one of summer’s favorite fruits. He’s even produced a dynamite video with step-by-step instructions for making this delectable peachy dessert. (Confession: I’ve been known to also eat peach cobbler for breakfast. Delish!) And talk about enthusiastic cooks! The week’s top new recipe shows off the enthusiasm of an Allrecipes’ home cook just by its name. Here’s the week’s recap:
The #1 new recipe for the week was The BEST Macaroni Salad You Will EVER Have!! (Yes, those exclamation marks really are part of the recipe’s name, and Allrecipes’ editors accepted them.)

Top Search Terms Last Week
Fennel, that shy retiring veggie, is receiving a lot of attention. Fennel recipes was the fastest-growing search term driving traffic to the site last week. Other fast growing search terms driving traffic to the site included eggs Benedict, chimichurri sauce, easy dinner recipes, and macaroni salad recipes. The fastest growing week-over-week internal search terms included scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict, oven-fried chicken, and country apple dumplings.
The week’s top video hit the sweet spot! It’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake, based on the most video page views per day live. It’s a cake made with softened ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and maraschino cherries. What’s not to like? It’s totally easy and fun to make, too.

- Grilled Garlic Steak with Garlic was the top performer for page views, excluding all featured content. Not surprising, because this recipe is also by Chef John. The guy knows his stuff! (This metric excludes video detail page views generated by newsletter features, primary nav. features, and/or video homepage features)
