AARON PAUL JUST POSTED THIS ON TWITTER AND I’M SHITTING

I haven’t seen either of these

This shouldn’t make me laugh as much as it does. My husband started laughing from the other room. I have tears in my eyes.

Bah!!

 Gone Girl

Ridiculously excited for this film…. makes me want to read the book again just watching the trailer.

If you haven’t seen this adorable little clip of Pharrell Williams crying on Oprah, you are doing a disservice to yourself.

I rarely bake. I’m well aware that I don’t possess the patience and precision that it requires. So, given my sweet tooth, I’ve fallen in love with other easier recipes that don’t have complicated, painstaking steps. This is what I call a pretty simple– not to mention delicious —  dessert. 

 Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding Recipe

 The Players: 
•	1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
•	1½ cups ice cold water
•	1 (3.4-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix (preferably Jell-O brand)
•	3 cups heavy cream
•	1 ½ (12-ounce) boxes Nabisco Nilla Wafers (no substitutions)  
•	4-5 cups sliced ripe bananas

The play-by-play: Step one- In a small bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk with water until combined. Add the pudding mix and beat well. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or until firm). 

Step two- In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold the pudding into the whipped cream until blended (and no streaks of pudding remain). To assemble—pick a large serving dish with at least a 5 quart capacity. Arrange the wafers along the bottom of the dish. Top with 1/3 of the bananas and then 1/3 of the pudding mixture (I found it easier to transfer the pudding mix to the dish by using a measuring cup). Repeat the layering technique twice (wafers, bananas, pudding). Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill for 4-8 hours before serving. You want the wafers to be cake-like so the longer you can leave in the fridge, the better. I served after 5 ½ hours and the consistency was perfect. 

Obviously this recipe was not my own. I added ½ a box of Nilla wafers to  this recipe I found online. You can also purchase the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook here (not an affiliate link). 

Note: the pudding is half assembled in that photo. I typically hate how [my] finished desserts photograph so I decided to capture this one as a work in progress of sorts.

I know I’m late to the party, but I got back into town and just now got around to watching the Louie CK Saturday Night Live.

Holy fucking shit, Sam Smith.

SNL musical performances are notoriously awful. The stage is tiny. The soundboard is unforgiving. World class rock stars show up and consistently delivery painfully mediocre performances.

This dude, though. Wow. Out of nowhere, he gives one of the most beautiful live performances I’ve ever seen on SNL. Totally melted my face.

Goosebumps.
