Do you ever get inspired to cook or bake from a movie? There are two that send me rushing to pull out the pots and pans, and strangely, make me think of bananas.  One is  “Dinner with Friends” and the other is “It’s Complicated” (remember Meryl Streep in that swoon-worthy kitchen?)

Its Complicated

Found in Traditional Home

Years ago, my Saturday routine was to be at the grocery store by 6 am, get my weekly shopping done and be back home by 8 am to start cooking all my make- ahead meals for the next week. (I spent about 60 hours a week at work back then). Before I even unpacked, I would pop one of those movies into the DVD  player and listen while I got organized. The movies must remind me of bananas because the first thing I would bake every Saturday was Banana Bread, using the leftover bananas from the week before.

And now, even though I am not at the grocery at 6 am on Saturdays, I still will bake banana bread with any ripe bananas we have.  Butterscotch chips were calling to me from the pantry  so I added them to a batch of this delicious bread. The flavor combination turned out to be amazing! Drizzling on Maple Glaze did’nt hurt anything either.
