Well, here we are.  The end of the summer.  Wait, end of the summer??  How is that possible?  I feel like Old Man Winter was just here…kicking and screaming all the way into April.  At least we’ve crammed all kinds of awesome summer activities into our schedule over the past few months!  Speaking of awesome, I was challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge recently.  (Follow me on Instagram to see the video.)  I’m glad I got this challenge in while it’s still kinda warm outside!

Even though summer may be coming to a close soon, there’s still plenty of time left to make some delicious summer desserts.  May I introduce you to a delicious Banana Cream Pie?  It’s one of my favorite summer desserts ever!

I’m guest posting this Banana Cream Pie over on Cooking with Books today.  I met Marnely back at Blog & Bake 2013, and we’ve been buddies ever since!  She lives on Martha’s Vineyard (seriously, she does!) where she works with her husband in a local restaurant.  Marnely’s site is amazing, but more importantly, she is an awesome person!  Stop by Cooking with Books for all sorts of foodie inspiration.  (A couple of my favorites are her Cinnamon Sugar Cashews, her Belgian Waffles with Green Tea Whipped Cream and her Southwestern Pasta Salad.)

Hop over to Cooking with Books to check out the recipe for this delicious Banana Cream Pie!
