The Most Popular Recipes in July

Want to know what the most well-loved recipes for the month of July were? You know the ones: the recipes our Simply sous chefs (that’s you!) have been cooking, sharing, and talking about nonstop. Read on to see what made the cut!

I’m not sure about you, but I feel like I blinked and July was gone!

We’re charging through the dog days of summer here, and trying to pack in as many adventures as we safely can.

This month, you all were still (!) making banana bread, but also trying your hands at a delicious Puerto Rican dessert.

You were grilling and dreaming of Maine lobsters, too. We’re with you there.

Did you miss any of these recipes? If so, it’s not too late to join in the fun.

This became an instant favorite, and we can see why! It comes together quickly, has bright flavors, and cooks up in one pan which means fewer dishes. It's a giant dinnertime win.

Low carb lettuce wrap with sliced steak, mint, radish, cucumber and peanuts wrapped up on a plate. A dipping sauce is on the plate as well.

You get a two-fer on this one! The steak marinade can also double as the dipping sauce, which saves a lot of time. These are easy to serve as well. Simply place all the ingredients on a platter and let everyone assemble their own lettuce wraps.

Plate of the best lobster roll recipe served with a side of chips and a lemon wedge.

Summer days begin and end with lobster rolls. You can get uber fancy if you'd like, but when it comes down to it, we prefer to take the simple route. The filling takes only a handful of ingredients, mix it together, and pile it onto a toasted bun!

Homemade bundt shaped templeque is on a coral plate with a gold spoon set to the left. The tembleque has toasted, shredded coconut mounded in the center. Behind the plate is a striped dish towel, small white container and yellowl plate all in partial view.

Two words come to mind with this Puerto Rican dessert: cool and refreshing. We're pretty sure you have all the ingredients right inside your pantry making it the ultimate summer sweet treat.
