Hello, sun; hello, heat; hello, sunburns! Hello, July!

Yes, folks, it’s all happening. Summer is officially in full swing, like 90° F and counting swing. And as we eke into July and grilling season and pool season, let’s take a quick look back at June and everything it had to offer. Each month, as the previous one comes to a close, we like to review the recipes you all loved the most. June, it seems, was all about ease. Simple, straightforward, beat-the-heat recipes to lead us into warmer months. In fact, many of them don't even require an oven—and that's something I can get behind.

As usual, we've also throw in a half recipe—a little tip, trick, or explainer that our readers couldn't get enough of. Scroll down to the bottom to see what it was.
