I don't see how you can use it as a control. It's like Linguee.de, which can't find a term at all one day, and once you've searched for it once serves up scores of hits for it the next day.

In any reasonably large American city, there are all kinds of Greek, Italian and Middle Eastern baked goods, and practically every European cuisine includes some kind of braided cookie. I see them all the time. You're reminding me of the lady from a small town way up north who told me, "My son likes Mexican food and all that way-out stuff."

(I am getting 3,550 hits on Google, but the top results link to pages where the term is "not found" ( http://www.epicurious.com/tools/searchresults?search=braided+cookie ) or not a cookie http://www.kluklucollection.com/wedge-ballerina-braided-cookie--136 ). Sometimes it's good to control with a check in Bing (61 results).
