Now that you set your variable favorite_color to the value 'blue', you need to put your variable into the desired string the question ask and display (print) your string. Answer below works:

favorite_color = 'blue'

print('The color {} is my favorite!'.format(favorite_color))

You could also utilize concatenation like so:

print( "The color " + favorite_color + " is my favorite!")

But I believe Craig Dennis wants you to utilize .format()

Use the multiple argument version of print...the one with the commas.
