Friday Favorites #43

There’s so many things I have to share today!

1. It always annoys me when I have to buy a lot of one ingredient for a little bit I’ll use in one recipe or when I forget something on my shopping list, here’s a great list for substitutions!

2. Not a huge fan of scary movies but if you are then a great exercise challenge when you’re watching.

3. Need to make this Ice Cream Cake ASAP!

4. I never know how I should be cleaning my workout clothes, guess I need to buy a special detergent.

5. A smart article to check out about expenses.

6. The other day I read that you can buy Starbucks pumpkin spice sauce now!  OMG who wants to split this with me, I need to have this in my life but clearly don’t need 63oz of it!

7. Yep all the truth about running!

8. No joke!  I binge watched Stranger Things in just a few days, that’s embarrassing.

1.  The Olympics make me so happy!  The athletes are just amazing!Rio-2016-Logo.jpg

2. I’ve drank something like this in the past, maybe I should go back to it since I haven’t been drinking coffee or caffeine.

3. My friend told me about the app, AllTrails.  It tells you about trails that are in your area and gives you maps and tons of other information concerning the trail.  I highly recommend it if you want to do some hikes.

4. Finally reading the new Harry Potter!  Wondering how fast I can finish it in, hopefully by Monday I’ll be onto a new book since I’m sure I won’t be able to put it down.

5. Here’s a list of some of my Friday Favorites that I love reading each week


Back to Olympic watching!

Panko Crusted Chicken with Honey Mustard Sauce

My sister passed along this recipe to me and I am so glad she did because it was plate licking delicious!  Pretty sure this will be in my weekly rotation of meals!  I snapped absolutely no pictures because I really hadn’t thought it would be anything spectacular but I was soooo wrong!  This recipe gets even more points for being so quick and easy that I even threw it together on a weekday night.

The following recipe made two servings of chicken (with sauce left over)

For the chicken:


Little less than a pound of chicken breasts

2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp salt

5 tsp olive oil

1 egg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray baking sheet ( I used a stone) with cooking spray.  Mix panko, paprika, onion powder, salt in a dish.  Drizzle olive oil over the mixture and mash with a fork until it’s mixed.  Whisk the egg and place in another dish.  Coat chicken in egg then in the panko mixture and place on baking sheet.  Cook in the oven till it reaches 165 degrees (it took mine 25 minutes).

For the sauce:


1/4 cup plain yogurt

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp honey

black pepper

Whisk all the ingredients together.

Once the chicken is done then place on plate and top with some sauce.

1. So excited!!!!  As this is posted I am on my way driving to West Virginia to see one of my best friends!  I’m driving by myself so I haven’t listened to any of my podcasts for the week so hopefully they keep me occupied.

2. How easy does this mug cake sound and no funky ingredients!  I made it and it was a perfect little treat!  Don’t burn your mouth, break it up and let it cool.

3. Right now this article runs true for me, running this summer is tough getting up around 5:30 am to run before the heat comes but I end up running in 75%-95% humidity.

4. I would like someone to make this for me please!


5. Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!  Margarita Bites!!!!!  Making these ASAP!

6. I’ve been putting collagen in my morning smoothie and tea everyday and it doesn’t change the taste of the texture of either.  Since it’s been such a short period of time I do not have any results to share however I found this post to be helpful.  It also has 6g of protein per tbsp, so an extra 12g a day for me!
