Banana Cream Pie

So Kim asked me for some recipes....I gave her the recipe to that NY Cheese cake recipe that everyone seemed like. The directions were fucking long.

Then I typed up this banana cream recipe that I used to have on my computer before it crashed....mother fucker. Anyway....I made it only once, but it was good. I got the recipe from a magazine. This guy in NY bakes cookies and shit for celebrities and normal people too. He only gave us his good recipes, not his secret awesome recipes...but this will do.

It taste better than it looks:
