The Most Popular Recipes in October

Welcome to our new feature celebrating the most popular recipes for the month! You know the ones: the recipes you've all been cooking, sharing, and talking about nonstop. Let's see which ones made the cut for October!

Happy November, everyone! While we’re always sad to see warmer temperatures go, fall cooking is just the best kind of cooking.

Our team has been busy testing holiday recipes, but in our downtime we’ve been cooking from the site just like you, discovering new favorites and revisiting classics (we’re looking at you, shepherd’s pie and banana bread).

From the looks of the top five recipes in October, it’s clear what’s going on in your kitchens! There’s a definite shift towards game day foods, comforting soups, and an amazing roast chicken that we can’t stop talking about.

Did you miss any of these? If so, it’s not too late to join in the fun.

    I thought that because the “Big Eating Holidays” approaches, all of us would appreciate this tip….

    How to not cry while chopping up all those onions! Its so simple and I can’t remember how I learned it but it works and its second nature now.

    Take your skins-on onions, and depending on their size and how many, place them in your microwave and cook for 5 – 20 seconds. Then remove, peel and chop. Bye bye watering eyes!

    Hope you share! You’re welcome!
