The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 is taking us back to Cousins Beach with Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah. While most people are still talking about the love triangle, Cape Cod beach house, and Taylor Swift-filled soundtrack from the first season, foodies are pre-occupied with how to make a pomegranate margarita like Belly does for hot summer days of lounging by the pool. Even the moment when Conrad brings home the “good muffins” for Belly on the morning of her debutante ball had you looking up muffin recipes on TikTok. With the new season comes even more The Summer I Turned Pretty recipes you’ll want to try making as a snack to enjoy as you marathon-watch.

While they may not be the exact same ones that the characters follow in the Prime Video series, these Summer I Turned Pretty recipes from TikTok are great dupes. In fact, a few brie, fig, and prosciutto sandwiches can be the perfect finger foods to serve while you and the Taylor to your Belly sit down for another rewatch or afternoon tea to spill on whether you’re #TeamBonrad or #TeamJelly.

You could even plan an epic backyard hang and serve a red, white, and blue cake like they do at their Fourth of July party. Hopefully, your sweets make it all the way to the table — unlike Susannah’s. Just don’t enjoy too many margaritas and you should be good. Eat along as you watch Season 2 with blueberry pie and Belly’s speciality hot cocoa. There are already a few TSITP recipes on your list now that you’ve started watching. To taste what you see on the screen, here are 13 other The Summer I Turned Pretty recipes to try.


Frozen Pomegranate Margarita


This pomegranate margarita recipe is so good that you’ll want to have six or seven glasses like Belly. Fortunately, this particular recipe from TikToker @thefitpeach is non-alcoholic so you can safely enjoy as many you’d like without accidentally telling your crush you find his wet hair “romantic.” If you do want to serve an alcoholic version for your backyard party, all you need to do is add the tequila. There’s also a non-frozen version if you find yourself without a blender.


Fourth of July Cake

Susannah made a delicious and Insta-worthy flag cake for the Fourth of July. However, it ended up on the pool deck after Belly tripped and pushed her down the stairs. If you were also sad to see a good cake go to waste, here’s everything you need to make your own Fourth of July cake at home.

This recipe from TikToker @athomewithshannon is just a basic vanilla cake with vanilla frosting, but the blueberries and strawberries on top make it look like an American flag. Also according to @athomewithshannon, this is the same cake Taylor Swift makes every year for her Fourth of July party. If it’s good enough for Taylor, it’s good enough for any Swiftie. For a grab-and-go snack, there’s also these mini Fourth of July cakes in a jar.


Banana Split Sundae

The first thing Taylor wants to do when she gets to Cousins Beach is grab a banana split with Belly and Jeremiah, and who could blame her? To make your own banana split at home, follow TikToker @solofrutheladosmty’s tutorial. It looks like the sundae Taylor orders from Scoops, only with vanilla ice cream on top, so feel free to make yours with just vanilla as well. Enjoy your banana split sundae with a milkshake from Yummly to match.


Mickey Mouse Pancakes

A tradition for Belly’s birthday is to enjoy some Mickey Mouse pancakes first thing in the morning. While you can use whatever mix or pancake recipe you’d like, TikToker @cookingwithchanel_sa shares how to create the perfect Mickey Mouse shape with your batter. Before enjoying, don’t forget the infinity syrup. You can make blueberry maple syrup at home, which Belly would really love as well.


Lobster Tails


For Belly’s birthday dinner, Susannah makes lobster. If you’re new to cooking and don’t feel comfortable boiling a full lobster meal, this lobster tail recipe from TikToker @theonealsway is a great start. It’s best served with some corn as well, like the kind Conrad shucks outside by the pool. With this recipe, you could even host a Midsommar-themed dinner party with your friends — flower crowns and all.



Also at Belly’s birthday dinner, Laurel serves some miyeok-guk — aka seaweed soup. This soup is a traditional Korean dish served on birthdays, and TikToker @chefchrischo shares a super easy recipe to follow. Of course, you can also make your miyeok-guk without beef if you’re a vegetarian like Cam.


Brie, Fig, and Prosciutto Sandwiches

When Jeremiah walks Belly to her first debutante tea, he raves about the brie, fig, and prosciutto sandwiches being served. Jere needs his own cooking show, because he made those sandwiches sound so delicious. Thankfully, TikToker @charcuterie.chick has this grilled brie cheese sandwich recipe for you to make yourself. There’s even a brie, fig, and prosciutto pizza recipe that’s perfect for sharing during a The Summer I Turned Pretty watch party.


Cinnamon Roll Muffins

While they’re only referred to as the “good muffins,” it looks like the muffins Conrad gets for Belly have cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top. That makes these cinnamon roll muffins from TikToker @thepalatablelife almost identical. Not only are these vegan, but they also have some protein powder as well. There’s no better way to start your day then with some delicious muffins packed with protein and topped with an icing glaze.

Belly’s Hot Cocoa

Hot cocoa is Belly’s “specialty,” so you’ll want to have a good recipe on hand for making a mug for you and your partner. TikToker @kkearah.kkraus claims to have “the best hot cocoa” recipe with cocoa powder, sugar, salt, water, milk, and vanilla extract. Since it’s the summer, you may want to make a frozen hot cocoa for extra warm days. Just don’t forget to put it in a The Simpsons mug, which is Conrad’s favorite, or this Junior Mint mug ($13) from Amazon, and hopefully yours isn’t “dusty.”

Boardwalk Funnel Cake

In Season 2, the crew heads down to the boardwalk for some fun. Fans of The Summer I Turned Pretty book series know that the boardwalk is where Belly got Junior Mint, her stuffed polar bear. Along with boardwalk games, another great thing you can find down by the seaside are some snacks like a funnel cake. To recreate the feeling of being at the boardwalk with your besties, make some homemade funnel cake with TikToker @matthewinthekitchen’s recipe. You could also make some salt water taffy while you’re at it.

Thanksgiving Sandwich

The teaser shows that fans can look forward to a Thanksgiving dinner with Belly’s family and the Fishers in Season 2. The summer may not be time for turkey and stuffing, but you can make a Thanksgiving sandwich with all the fixings thanks to TikToker @nishcooks’ recipe. Make a fall sangria to enjoy alongside your sandwich that includes some of those leftover pomegranate seeds from your margarita.

Cam’s Sprout And Avocado Sandwich

Cam Cameron is making a return to Cousins for Season 2 as a fan-favorite character. If you’re more team Cam over Conrad and Jere, you may want to make these sprout and avocado sandwiches that he made in Season 1. This simple tutorial from TikToker @nutritiouslyeasy will help you make sandwiches to bring with you to the beach for some whale watching. For more protein, add in some turkey like this recipe from Yummly.

Blueberry Muffins

Another book bake idea are these blueberry muffins from TikToker @mackenziekhan. Belly and Susannah bond while making blueberry muffins in The Summer I Turned Pretty, so you may want to make memories with your besties as you’re baking some as well.

Cheetos Mozzarella Sticks

During their road trip to the summer house, Taylor and Steven pick up some Cheetos to snack on in the car. If you’re planning a weekend trip and need a snack for your travels, you might want to bring along some of these Cheetos mozzarella sticks from TikTok. For this recipe, TikToker @thezachrocheleau coats cheese sticks in crushed up Flamin' Hot Cheetos. You could also try making your own homemade Cheetos with this Yummly recipe.

Blueberry Pie

When Belly and Jeremiah arrive in Cousins Beach, they stop to get a slice of pie. Belly’s favorite is blueberry. Even Steven knows that, which is why Taylor and Steven show up to the summer house with a blueberry pie in hand. You can make your own at home with an easy blueberry pie recipe from TikToker @mrs_dee_penda. Yummly also has this blueberry pie recipe with lemon zest to make it extra tart.

Boozy Cherry Coke Slush

In Season 2, Belly gets Jeremiah a half cherry and half Coke slush from the gas station. If you’re throwing a party this summer, serve up this boozy cherry coke slush from TikToker @macygubitoso. Belly says this is her speciality, but we all know it’s actually hot cocoa. There’s also a non-alcoholic version you can make at home with just Cherry Coke and ice. Hopefully, it’s not “too sugary.”
