Friday Favorites from the Candid Appetite, Our Table of Seven, Hooked on Houses and More

Good morning and a very happy weekend! For many it is a three day weekend and I am sure that there are barbecue's, beaches and lots of down time on the schedule. My weekend will include much of the same for the unofficial start of Summer. 

This weekend to me is all about fun and food, especially burgers. I know I post a lot of sweet treats here but if I had to name my all time favorite food it is burgers, and then pizza a close second. May 28th is Natioonal Burger Day( yes there is a day for everything) and I will be celebrating with a burger. To be precise this Bacon Cheddar Burger from one of my favorite blogs The Candid Appetite, if this burger does not suit your taste check out my burger board on Pinterst to find many, many others that might appeal to you. 

Chocolate & Caramel Fluff Brownies

I will be making these Chocolate & Caramel Marshmallow Brownies from Table for Seven to take to a friends this weekend. Don't they look scrumptious?

As for a cocktail to start summer how about a glass of Strawberry Sangria from Gimme Some Oven?

I love lake houses, and I think this one featured on Hooked on Houses would be perfect for a summer getaway!

Although this is not a lake house I am in love with Brookhaven Cottage a stunning house that Kristy and Beth featured on Design Chic this week.  

Are you looking for a few books to read this summer? Check out this list and you may find a few interesting ones to take to the beach!

Did you read anything interesting or see anything this weekend to share with us? Please share your movies, books, recipes or anything else that you found interesting. I hope that you have a fabulous, fun and safe holiday weekend.


  1. We are celebrating the "Fêtes des Voisins" tonight and I have to take a charcuterie platter (easy) and a dessert. Everybody loves discovering typically American goodies (cheesecake! funfetti cake! chocolate chip cookies! rocky road bars!). Those brownies look like just the thing.

  2. Good morning, Elizabeth! HAPPY FRIDAY! That first image of the burger, it's the third one this morning that is similar, and it sure does look AMAZING!

    The summer vacation approaches. With just one more short week of assessments, I am almost there. THEN, the fun begins! Have a super day my friend.

  3. Those brownies look particularly delicious!
