What do you do when you hit a creative roadblock when it comes to dinner ideas? You Google it of course.

After a day of working hard and dealing with all that you deal with, sometimes the last thing you want to do is decide on the dinner selection for the day. So you Google it and move on to your next challenge.

When it comes to New Jersey, our most Googled dinner is a meal that will warm the heart of most people in the Garden State.

For me, and so many of us, this meal is the ultimate comfort meal. Are you having a bad day? New Jersey reaches for the spaghetti and meatballs.

Are there three more beautiful words in the English language? I don't think so. While Louisiana is searching for "jambalaya" and Maryland is punching in "salmon", here in New Jersey we're leaning on a true Garden State comfort food.

Here's another feather in our caps. New Jersey is the only state with spaghetti and meatballs as the most Googled dinner food, according to Eat This, Not That.

Maybe this is one of the reasons why I think New Jersey is the true Italian Food capital of the nation. I would have said the world, but I think that might be a bit of a reach. A bit.

I do have one question though. Why are we Googling it? We already know how to make it, don't we? We'll chalk it up to looking for a unique recipe, or maybe a great local restaurant with amazing spaghetti and meatballs. I think we have a few of those.
