Sometimes the question begs to be asked…

Would it kill you… ?

Would it kill you to pick up your dirty towels off the bathroom floor?

Would it kill you to sit down and eat your dinner instead of having me chase you every 2 bites?

Would it kill you to actually do SOME work and not stare into space every 10 minutes like an overgrown Mr Magoo?

Would it kill you to take a shower and wear deodorant so my nose hairs don’t burn off?

Would it kill you to remember my birthday and not try to pass off a DVD as a present?

Would it kill you to do your homework on Friday afternoons instead of Sunday night 5 minutes before your scheduled bedtime?

Would it kill you to keep your tantrums to a minimum once a week? And If you absolutely MUST throw a tantrum, can you please lower the decibel of your screams to one where my windows don’t rattle?

Winter is coming.

Winters are damn cold.

Would it kill you to make it just a little more “Riunite on ice” and a little less “nod and high five”?

Ladies… You know what I’m talkin’ about.

I mean, really… Would it kill you?

Would it kill you to make this cake?

Wait, wait, wait…

Would it kill you to make this caramel banana chocolate upside down cake?

THIS CAKE!

Let me tell you… Let me tell you about this cake!

Ok, first… I’ve made it ten (10!) times.

And every single time this cake does not make it past the next day.

I’m going to tell you why…

Because it starts with a caramel. All good things begin with caramel in my opinion.

Butter and brown sugar, people – until that motherjumper bubbles and caramelizes.

And then – And then a little vanilla extract is added to the caramel…

Just ’cause…

And then there’s banana slices. On top of the caramel!

And the best part?

Do you really want to know?

All of this happens in one 10″ skillet.

From the caramel, to the bananas, to the cake…

It all happens in a skillet.

It’s the easiest cake I’ve ever made – One of those flashy looking concoctions that make your skillz seem “Award winning pastry chef”  instead of “I burn boiling water” novice.

If that’s not reason enough to stop speaking mid-sentence, drop what your doing, and get that caramel bubbling, then I don’t know what is…
