  This is the most popular chain restaurant on Google Maps Google Maps is turning 15 years old. The in-app and online tool, which launched Feb. 8, 2005, is celebrating the milestone by revealing which restaurant chain users searched for the most in 2019. Drive-thru heroes like Chick-fil-A, Starbucks and McDonald’s all have massive cult followings, but the top spot went to one of America’s favorite pizza chains instead: Domino’s.

Here at Delish, we're obsessed with pickles. But you probably already knew that. Well, did you know that pickles are ridiculously easy to make at home?

Here's everything you need to know.

What kind of cuke should I use?

We highly recommend using either Persian or Kirby cucumbers. They're both classic and stay nice and crunchy. Use Persian if you're not so into seeds. That's what we used here. They also pack nicely because they're super straight and thin.

Give Your Pickle Juice a Second Life

  Give Your Pickle Juice a Second Life Stop dumping out your pickle juice, your bean liquid, your olive brine, and more—and start turning them into something delicious.The thing is, most of these flavorful liquids can be used in your cooking—and can make your everyday weeknight recipes even better.

Does the type of vinegar matter?

Yes, and no. We used white vinegar here so the flavor would be clean and it wouldn't discolor the pickle, but you could swap for apple cider vinegar. Stay away from vinegars that are too overpowering, like red wine vinegar, sherry, or...gasp...balsamic!

Can I add other flavors?

Yes! We kept it simple by adding a few crushed garlic cloves and fresh dill, but feel free to get creative. Add mustard seeds, whole black peppercorns, crushed red pepper flakes, or even fresh chiles for a kick!

What jar should I use?

We love mason jars for the job, but you could even use an old (washed) pickle jar. Just always be sure to use a clean jar with a tight lid.

How long does it take to "pickle"?

We say wait at least 2 hours for the pickling to kick in, but if you can, try to give it 24 hours for max flavor.

3 New Spice Blends to Make While We're All Isolating at Home

  3 New Spice Blends to Make While We're All Isolating at Home Spice blends make everything from rice bowls to coffee cakes pop. They can be made with the odds and ends of your pantry, and they last infinitely longer than herbs. In other words, spice blends are perfect for this cooking moment—which is why we're releasing three new ones.A couple of months ago, I was merrily making up spice mixes in the Epicurious Test Kitchen, no anxieties about social isolation and global pandemics on my mind. My goal was three new jars to tuck into the pantry, each a new kind of magic potion to make baking and cooking more fun. One would be tangy. One would be spicy. And the third would swing from savory to sweet.

How long will it last?

These pickles will last for up to a week in your refrigerator, but we doubt you'll have any left at that point ????.

Once you've mastered these classic pickles, the possibilities are endless. Save the brine for your Thanksgiving turkey, make a savory cheesecake (we're serious), or just add to sandwiches!

What to do with pickle juice, the sneaky probiotic food hiding in your fridge .
Don't let those health benefits go to waste.That said, some leftovers are easier to use than others. You might have already figured out that citrus peels can be used to brighten up roasted meat dishes, and used coffee grounds can be transformed into a deodorizer or body scrub (amongst many other uses), but other food remnants don't seem so versatile at first glance. Case in point: pickle juice.
