Come July, when we’re deep into the heat of summer, there are certain inevitabilities — like an abundance of zucchini and summer squash, perfect ears of sweet summer corn, and all sorts of cool sweet treats. And this month we gave you recipes to make the most of those summer favorites. Of all the fresh corn recipes out there, we were most excited to give you several for butter bath corn (start with the classic, then move on to Buffalo-style). There were recipes that made you fall hard for zucchini, like cheesy zucchini melts and a caramelized zucchini pie, along with the creamiest, dreamiest milkshakes around, and the most amazing strawberry Oreo icebox cake.

Without further ado, these are the 10 most popular new recipes we published this month.
