Summer has a way of moving quickly once the 4th of July hits, and I have to admit this year feels faster than usual. Between travel plans and gatherings with family and friends, time’s flying! Do you feel the same? 

We can tell that during the rush of summer, you took time to make delicious meals and treats for your families. And your favorite recipes on Simply Recipes this past month were very much a celebration of peak summer. It’s no surprise that produce-driven treats like zucchini muffins and berry hand pies topped the list. In between all the summer fun, though, dinner still needs to get on the table, so quick meals like meatloaf and egg stir-fry made the list, too.

Here are the 10 recipes you clicked on most in July.
