So I’m starting to think that baking is perhaps a tool for procrastination… Because I really should have used the last two hours studying, but rather I’ve watched 2 episodes of Gilmore Girls and baked banana bread. Banana bread is amazing though, so moist and lovely. The cinnamon sugar and walnut crust looked amazing on … More Walnut Crusted Banana Bread
