What's sweet, and nutty, and Southern all over? Pecan pie, of course.

It seems the beloved dessert really rose in its mainstream appeal this year, securing its spot as the top trending recipe search term on Google for this year. To determine what's "trending," Google used an algorithm that compares the percentage increase in searches for a specific term over a specified time period, in this case, 2018 as compared to 2017. (It's worth noting that Google also implemented a minimum threshold to limit queries with very small search volume from appearing on their 2018 trending list). In addition to recipes, Google also shared the top trending searches in the food and wedding categories, with unicorn cake and the royal wedding each coming in first in their respective arenas.
