Have a wonderful weekend, friends, and please enjoy my favorite finds from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites!
Favorite twist: Red Velvet Scones. Umm, gorgeous! What a great twist on a scone and Red Velvet Cake. Some people are so creative!
Favorite place: French Polynesia. Ok, forget what I said a couple months ago about preferring a cozy, mountain-side vacay over a trip to paradise. Anything over 50, hell, 30 degrees sounds like total bliss right about now – especially a floating hut in Bora Bora!
Favorite fresh: Peach Mango Smoothies. A fresh, vibrant, good-for-you smoothie. I can’t even imagine how delicious this must taste!
Favorite Fitness: Sexy Leg Workout. Love the looks of this leg, core, and butt workout. Totally doable.
Favorite sweet: Carrot Cake Loaf with Thick Cream Cheese Frosting. Sweet, moist and slathered with thick cream cheese frosting, I would devour a slice of this loaf for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I LOVE carrot cake, especially when it doesn’t have raisins. The horror!
Favorite fashion: LC Spring Collection by Lauren Conrad. I am obsessed with the combo of pink and white. I haven’t found any of LC’s Kohls pieces to be as cute in person as they are in photos (although they look ADORBS on my friend Laura) but I’m thinking these pants are kind of no-fail-cute, especially with those heels.
Favorite dinner: Roasted Salmon with Avocado and Grapefruit Salsa. A beautiful, creamy, tropical, and tart recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
Favorite space. I’d never know what to put on top of cabinets that have space between the top and the ceiling. LOVE this idea for displaying unique kitchen pieces through see-through cabinetry, instead of dusty ivy!
Favorite bite: Buffalo Oven-Fried Goat Cheese. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time then you know how obsessed I am with all things buffalo-flavored. Combine it with warm goat cheese then feed it to me and I will love you forever.
Favorite collection: Healthy Pressed Juice Recipes. An awesome collection of healthy, yummy juice recipes – which is a good reminder to dust off my juicer this weekend. It’s been awhile!
Favorite redo: Chex Scotcharoos. Brilliant! I would love to try these with honey chex. Can you even imagine?!
Favorite furball. Pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling all week. Cold, and upset about it.
Favorite sip: Peach Sangria. Raise your hand if you cannot WAIT for peach season!? In the meantime, I bet frozen peaches would work really well in this recipe – they’d keep your drink cold, too!
Favorite song: Carry On – Fun. I could NOT fall asleep for the life of me a couple nights ago – this song would not stop playing on repeat in my head! Love all things Fun.
Favorite bite: 100 Calorie Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing. NEED. NOW!!
Have a great weekend!
Just had to say – this is a seriously great Friday Favorite’s (p.s. look forward to this post every week!) The Sexy Leg Workout is great, I have done it before… LOVE tribe sports workouts. Scotharoos are one of my fave desserts! And – LOVE the various drink related links.

[…] stole this workout from here and switched up some of the exercises. Got through it pretty quickly, so I did 20 min on the bike […]
Oh wow – I’ve got potato skins on the brain this week – superbowl fever, I guess! So many fun things in the round-up this week!
I’m addicted to your Friday Favorites posts! I always get introduced to something new and fun, and now I can’t get Fun.’s song out of my head either!
I made the roasted salmon last night. My husband never, EVER likes anything but grilled salmon that I marinate. Despite me continually trying to find a baked recipe he doesn’t balk at. Guess what?! He liked this!!! Interested to hear your comments after you try it!
Made the carrot loaf this weekend–both the bread and the frosting are awesome! Thanks for the link!
I am definitely making the meatballs and the potato skins for Super Bowl! They look great! And, I loved watching your tv clip, so cool and you did GREAT!
Random question… I saw ur last name was Porter….I have followed ur blog for years and never caught it… R u by chance related to the late Orville Porter from Cresco IA?

If you are going to Scratch, I highly recommend “Doughlicious”. They make them on Friday’s.
You and Ben are going to love those cupcakes. I tried the Almond Joy on TH. today there’s a cupcake called Sully, which they told me was a Monster Bar in a cupcake. YUM!! Have FUN!!
Oh, it’s soooo cold and the peach sangria sounds amazing!!!
My bf & I were super disappointed by Scratch. We much prefer the place across from Living History Farms. They were way more moist and yummy!
