Friday Favorites from Lemon Stripes, The Every Girl, Lemon Strips, Marc and Angel and More

Good morning ad happy June to you! I love 4 day weeks and I am so looking forward to the weekend because I think it might be sunny, we have had so much rain this month it is depressing, especially when it rains non-stop on the weekends. I want to be at the beach with a good book working on my tan!

I discovered not only the most scrumptious looking cake this week but a beautiful blog to spend hours perusing as well, its called The Brick Kitchen. I found my way there by way of this Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Layer Cake. Isn't it gorgeous? 

Mexican food is another favorite food of mine and I think these Enchilada Suizas look delicious.
