Recipe

This weekend I set out to make breakfast but in all honesty all I really wanted was coffee and cake and cooking movies. I couldn’t really plan a better day than passing the time experimenting in the kitchen and watching movies where people cook, and preferably fall in and out of love. You know the kind. And eating this banana cake, drinking coffee, and watching multiple cooking movies perfect day.
