Lust List: A Royal Baby, Homeland and Addicting Burgers

This Lust list has a bit of everything. Pop culture frenzy, a drama filled Showtime series and an addicting meatless burger you have to have.
At around half past 4 pm. local time, William and Kate welcomed the third heir to the British throne. For all those following #RoyalBabyWatch (sorry, had to) there were theories as to whether she was having a boy or girl. Of course I wished she was having a mini Kate, but alas, it was a boy. Frankly, I don't care what gender it is, I'm just stoked to see how Kate dresses the little bugger. :) 
 I'm not one of those people who tell you "OMG you have to watch this." But honestly, you need to watch Homeland. Season 3 is going to start September 29, so you have more than enough time to watch the first 2 seasons (there is only 12 episodes per season) On Demand on Comcast or via Netflix. Each episode leaves you with your mouth open, screaming at your TV, wanting more. Just when you think you know what is going on, it flips on it's head. You can't just watch one episode in one sitting. I dare you.
Everyone knows the best thing about going to Costco is all the free food stations. I have been eying Black Bean burger recipes on Pinterest for a while, so when Costco had these samples, I was thrilled. They were fantastic. For me, you can't even tell the burger is made without meat, because it's so flavorful and has the perfect amount of spice. I choose to eat mine protein style, with no bun, with chopped veggies on top (tomatoes, avocado, etc.) with sweet potato fries. 

What are you all lusting over right now?

Laughing Cow Chicken

Chicken is my protein of choice when making dinner at home. It's low fat and good for you. There just comes a time when you have had it prepared the same way so many times you start to get antsy. I do for sure. So I made this recipe up right on the spot. I just hoped it would be a success...

Ingredients: (Serves 2)
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 wedges of laughing cow 35 calorie cheese
- 1 egg
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1. Butterfly each chicken breast. 
2. Spread one wedge per chicken breast on one of the open sides. Then close them back together.
3. Beat the egg in a medium size bowl. Dump the bread crumbs on a plate. 
4. Coat each chicken breast in the egg mixture then transfer to the bread crumbs. Fully coat them. 
5. Place the chicken breasts on a baking pan. Cook in the oven at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until fully cooked. 

 The chicken was so delicious! It was so crispy on the outside and so creamy and juicy on the inside. It may be one of the easiest and tastiest chicken recipes I have ever made. And I'm pretty sure you can't screw it up. :) This will definitely be regularly rotating in my chicken lineup.

Fab Find of The Week: Crochet Tank

I have been a very bad blogger! This is the longest I have gone without posting, and there is no excuse. :( I was out of town last week for 4 days in Lake Tahoe for Fourth of July, and before that, I was dealing with some things that made me focus on other, non-blogging related things. But, I am back! I apologize profusely! 

Forever 21 Sleeveless Crochet Top
 This season I am gravitating towards bohemian-like silhouettes. Peasant tops, crochet tops, lace tops, galore. I found this crochet tank at Forever 21 online and fell in love with it's feminine look, lace detail, and Free People-esque look to it. But you know I didn't pay the Free People price. Easily paired with skinny jeans or cutoffs, I layer on necklaces and bangles to enhance the boho vibe. 

It gets better. The top is currently featured in Forever 21's summer sale! It's now only $11! Get it before it's sold out here.
