They are a little Jersey Shore Crazy, no?


  1. Good afternoon from Tokyo!

    Daphne, not only does that look delicious, but I bet it's also refreshing. Lemons in the summertime? Yes, please!! Thanks for sharing, hon. I hope to have my act together in the next week and participate then.



  2. Anyone else having trouble with the badge?? Mine is saying HTML cannot be accepted: Tag is broken

  3. I love a lemon cake! Yours looks awesome!! :)

  4. Oh dear~now you know I love me some anything lemon!!!! And look! The next post lemon cookies! :) ~Heaven~
    Look I love all the RH's franchise but I've figured out the richer they are the more crazy they are! I mean, what the cuss! I would never speak to any of my friends or enemies they way these 'ladies' do. My momma didn't raise me to act like that, for real and i'd get a good talkin' too if I did so, especially on camera for the whole world to see. They need to do a RHO(Mississippi)! LOL That would be a blast!

  5. I can't wait to watch RHONY tomorrow! Enjoy your weekend with your best friend. I do adore the way you speak of your husband. It's something I hope to aspire to one day.

    My mom would love this recipe! She adores lemon, but since I burned myself quite badly on lemon bars once, she hasn't made them in years. This may be a good substitute. ;)

  6. That picture is adorable! I must copy this recipe as my husband LOVES lemon cake. And this one sounds doable though I am not a baker.....thanks and happy weekend to you!

  7. YUMMY!! Cake looks great! RHONY = craziness! ;))

  8. I'm gonna have to sit this one out :(

    Things have just been so crazy this week....my meals have come straight outta the freezer & cardboard. Glad the Mr. is coming home ~ your weekend will be fab! xoxo Traci

  9. well don't you look absolutely drop dead gorgeous in that pic- not to mention the handsome man by your side! Loving it!

    That lemon cake is screaming at me to make it. Can you just send it my way instead! Love you girl and so glad it is friday too- It has been an insane week for me too. Xo- oh and im linking up my strawberry balsamic mint and basil jam i just posted this morning! I will be sure to visit the other three links too!

  10. Good Morning Gorgeous lady!! This sounds so yummy and perfect for afternoon tea in the garden... Mr. G. loves lemon cake!!

    Visited the three gals before me ~ what fabulous recipes, everyone is sharing!!

    Wishing you a fabulous week-end ..xo HHL

  11. The cake looks delish!! So refreshing!

  12. I love that picture of you and your mister. Adorable couple.

    Your cake sounds delish. I LOVE anything with lemon.

    Have a great weekend, Daph! :)

  13. Cake sounds yummy! I'll have to come back later and look at everyone linking up. Such a cute pic of you two! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  14. That looks yummy! And SUPER easy...like easy enough for somebody who's almost 9 months pregnant and tired to make :)

  15. Totally trying this cake this weekend, I think I could handle it....but question. I don't have a bundt pan (remember I ususally don't bake) but I do have a stonewear pan with six small bundts (maybe 6" round each). Think it'd work in that?

  16. You look soooo sassy in that picture - love the dress!!! I am on a crazy diet, but I will file this recipe away for when I'm skinny again! Happy Friday!

  17. Omg I love recipes that are easy to make! Thank you for sharing :)
