Happiest July 5th everyone (and happy birthday to my brother Creighton!)! I hope you guys had a great 4th of July and are enjoying a fun summer weekend with plenty of chill time in the sun, family, friends, and delicious food. I’m finally heading off to Costa Rica today to join my family for a few days of vacation…and knowing my family, plenty of adventure as well!
Just a quick post today, as I wanted to share some of HBH’s most popular summer recipes throughout the years. I love creating new recipes each and every day. But pulling recipes for this post really made me realize that I have some insanely delicious older recipes too! Hoping to recreate a few of them with some updates soon!
Until then, here are the top 25 most popular summer recipes that I’ve shared over the past seven summers. Happy long (summer) weekend!
See you all on Sunday for another favorites post with updates from Costa Rica.
Bonus because I love this recipe so much.
Sweet summertime peach halves, grilled and finished with a drizzle of browned honey butter that’s swirled with both vanilla and cinnamon. Each grilled peach is topped with ice cream and cinnamon “toast” brioche breadcrumbs.
Made simply with baby Yukon gold potatoes, vinegar, cheese, fresh herbs, plenty of flaky sea salt and black pepper.
The filling is made with two base ingredients, high-quality chocolate ice cream, and creamy peanut butter. The crust is a mix of sweet chocolate wafer cookies and salted butter. Top with homemade “magic shell” and salty peanuts.
Sweet and juicy watermelon, fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, salty olives, and feta cheese are combined to create a refreshing summer salad that’s pretty and so delicious.
Zucchini wrapped around a bundle of cheese, then served over warm herb roasted tomatoes.
Three layers of fluffy cake, filled with bourbon peach jam, raspberry jam, and the most delicious browned butter buttercream.
Pan roasted cherry tomato summer pasta, with white wine, garlic, fresh herbs, topped with the most addicting lemony breadcrumbs, and finished with luscious burrata cheese. Ready for eating in under 30 minutes.
These pork chops are pan-seared and cooked with balsamic vinegar and fresh peaches to create the perfect sweet and savory combo. This skillet dinner is made with less than 10 ingredients and is ready in under 30 minutes.
Zucchini, sweet summer corn, fresh garden herbs, and three kinds of cheese all baked together in a buttery sesame cracker crust.
Creamy, spicy, tomato basil pesto sauce made with summer tomatoes, basil pesto, and a touch of red enchilada sauce, then tossed with fettuccine pasta, creamy goat cheese, and melty fontina cheese.
My go-to once the cherry tomatoes start showing up for the season. Herby roasted tomatoes, creamy carbonara pasta, crisp prosciutto, and a little burrata.
Shredded chicken in a sweet and spicy pineapple BBQ sauce. All made in the instant pot (along with slow cooker and stove-top variations). Serve this up bowl style…with quinoa, fresh pineapple salsa, and avocado.
Soft, buttery, flaky croissants layered with sweet fruit jam and extra creamy, cream cheese. Then baked in an eggy french toast “batter”. Super pretty when topped with fresh berries. No one will pass up this french toast!
Fresh raspberries, jam, and sweet peaches sandwiched between two layers of buttery, cinnamon oat crumble.
Grilled Greek chicken (or roasted), served bowl style with orzo, roasted peppers, avocado, feta cheese, cucumbers, and the most deliciously addicting sizzled mint goddess sauce.
10. No Fuss Lemon Tart.
The filling is made with four base ingredients, heavy cream, honey, lemon, and vanilla extract. The crust is a mix of sweet graham crackers, salty pretzels, and just a touch of butter. Top with an assortment of fresh berries.
Two of summer’s star produce, zucchini and yellow summer squash are caramelized and mashed to create a creamy, buttery pasta sauce without using any cream.
Grab your favorite pasta, fresh cherry tomatoes, sweet corn, basil, cheddar cheese, and an avocado…toss it all together, and done. It’s summery, healthy, and so good!
Pasta tossed with slow roasted cherry tomatoes, basil pesto, burrata cheese, and prosciutto. All baked until the cheese is melty and the prosciutto extra crisp.
These are 100% vegan, made with six very simple ingredients, free of added sugar, loaded with chocolate, beyond delicious, and require no cooking. In just 20 mins you’ll have a sweet treat perfect for any day of the week.
This chicken is made in under an hour, uses just one skillet, and is beyond delicious. It’s creamy, garlicky, packed with corn, and finished with fresh herbs and parmesan. Perfect cozy, summer dinner for any night of the week.
Quick, simple, vegetarian, healthy, and SO GOOD. Slow roasted red peppers stuffed with Greek orzo, feta cheese, and topped with fresh lemony basil tomatoes. Summer dinner perfection!
Four layers of light and fluffy vanilla cake with homemade blackberry lavender jam, and white chocolate buttercream.
Make this curry with whatever you have on hand, I used a mix of sweet corn and zucchini, coconut milk, and rice noodles. Then add some heat with curry paste, and balance it all out with a squeeze of lime. All you need for this recipe are pantry ingredients and 30 minutes.
Extra saucy Asian inspired noodles with bell peppers, chicken, fresh basil, and an addicting sweet and spicy sauce. All made and ready for eating in just about 20 minutes. Doesn’t get better than these noodles on a busy night.
