TWD: Banana Cream Pie

YES! I'm SO happy someone FINALLY chose this recipe! Ever since I got this book, and 
saw the picture of this pie, I've been looking for a reason to make this!
So first, i'd like to thank Amy of Sing for your Supper for deciding to make this.
And secondly, it was my dads birthday yesterday and one of his all time favorite
desserts is none other than Banana Cream Pie! So I though, perfect!
I've never made banana cream pie before, so looking at Dorie's recipe, I had to admit,
I was a little intimidated. But once I got the custard, and the pie dough ready, and going,
I started to feel a little more confident about it. And needles to say, it turned out
absolutely MAGNIFICENT in the end!

I loved the different twist on adding cinnamon and nutmeg to the custard.
Such a great and tasty addition! I was SO glad to see my dads face just
LIGHT up as soon as he took his first bite. That made me so extremely
happy that he and the rest of my family enjoyed it!
This was great recipe this week! Hope everyone enjoyed it as much
as I did!

Hi Bronte! It's really, really cool to meet another 17 year old baker. We live pretty close too... I'm in Seattle. I don't want to go to culinary school, but it's definitely something I love :)

For my photos I use a point and shoot Kodak EasyShare camera, which is actually not very good. I'm planning to get a Canon Rebel XTi. My first photos were pretty awful, but with good light and editing I can make them okay!

Your food looks really good too, especially this banana cream pie! To make this even weirder, I actually made him a banana cream pie too for his birthday last year because its his favorite. It didn't look anywhere near as good as this yours... yum!
