You can tell a lot about what's going on in someone's life based on their search history. And right now, we're all turning to recipes to bide our time indoors and create comforting dishes. There's data to back that up: Google recently revealed that the search interest around the term "recipe" has reached an all-time high between 2004 and now.

Of course, the wizards at Google can also tell us exactly what folks are searching for and break it down by geographical location. The tech giant just released a list of the most uniquely searched recipes by state over the last 30 days—"unique" is when a state searches for something more than all of the USA. That explains why Louisiana's top result is crawfish etouffee.

It's worth noting that the most popular recipe over all—the one that 13 states have in common—is "hamburger (or hamburger meat) recipe," which feels especially patriotic. If you're still searching for the perfect burger tutorial, might we suggest recreating Shake Shack's signature cheeseburger at home tonight? It's easier than you'd expect.

But the grand prize goes to Washington, D.C., where folks are turning to Google not for dinner inspiration but for a solid margarita recipe. We raise our glass to you, D.C. Thanks for keeping it real. Without further ado, take a look at which in-demand dishes the other 50 states are Googling right now.
