And when I say most popular, what I really mean to say is the most popular lazy summer recipes from all the years past. Why are they the most popular? Well one, because they’re delicious (hopefully that’s a given). And two? Because they’re all mostly easy recipes for lazy days in the kitchen when it’s either too hot cook, too late to cook (because you’ve been out enjoying the day), or you just don’t feel like cooking but want good food.

Simple recipes for lazy summer cooking is key right now. With the 4th of July tomorrow, and the long holiday weekend ahead, I thought I’d share out all the recipes that have been the most popular on HBH each and every summer. Some tried and true “oldies, but goodies”.

I’m not usually big on doing recipe round-ups, but I shared a similar post last summer highlighting everyone’s favorites recipes. Ever since then, I’ve received many requests to do these types of posts more often. With 2457 recipes on HBH, I’m realizing that it can be hard to find tried-and-true favorites for each specific season. So, below is my summer 2020 list of the top most popular lazy day summer recipes. Hoping you guys find many recipes to make on repeat all summer long.

Until then, here are the top 30 most popular summer recipes that we’ve shared over the past eight summers. Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!! See you all on Sunday for another favorites post.

Oh and lastly, I’d really love to hear what your personal favorite summer HBH recipe is? What has become a go-to staple for you guys? Excited to hear what you all love most! And let me know what you might be looking for in July and August too!
