July was a hot one, but we still managed to make a ton of recipes. We even found excuses to crank on the oven. I mean, just take one look at Senior Contributing Editor Sheela’s blueberry crumble and tell me you don’t want it. In a delightful twist, our top recipe of this peak-summer month was melted butter — cowboy butter, to be exact. In order to get ready for the best outdoor barbecues and picnics, we turned to make-ahead, no-lettuce salads and no-cook sauces. And of course, summer isn’t summer without a fresh cocktail. 

Here are the most popular recipes from July 2023.
