If you’re in shock that Labor Day weekend is around the corner, know you’re not alone. We can’t believe how quickly summer has slipped past us and that we’re on the brink of September.

Our most popular recipes from August showed us how many of you spent your time this past month. Some of you headed back to school and back to routines, so quick weeknight dinner ideas like Instant Pot chicken thighs and taco spaghetti were in demand.
