What Were Google's Top 10 Recipes in 2009?

Just got an interesting tidbit from a friend that I thought I'd share.

It's a list of the top 10 recipes that were searched on Google last year. 

As someone who compulsively Googles everything -- and who consults with the online search engine far more often than the recipe box -- I was intrigued to see what others like myself are hoping to cook when they go online. 

Here's the rundown, with salsa and hummus edging out all-American apple pie and meatball:

1. Chili
2. Meatloaf
3. Cheesecake
4. Banana bread 
5. Pancake 
6. Salsa 
7. Hummus 
8. Lasagna
9. Apple pie
10. Meatball
