I love the classic desserts!! Like this Luscious Banana Cream Delight! 🙂
I compare classic desserts to TCM. In case, you don’t know what TCM is? It’s a TV network station that plays all the old classic films released prior to 1970, with no commercial interruptions. TCM stands for Turner Classic Movies.
Have you heard of it or ever watched it?
My kids think I’m a weirdo and make fun of me, but I can’t help it!
I am hopelessly and totally obsessed with these black and white movies. They’re just so iconic looking, have a much higher quality of storytelling and I always feel transported to a former time period.
My favorite era when movies were made are from the 40’s and 50’s. AND…I love they way they dressed back then, so retro, so fashionable, so classic.
However, I found I do not like silent movies, that was back in the 20’s and 30’s and I do not like Westerns, most musicals and war movies, with the exception of all World War II history.

I’m just not much into the fake reality TV, game shows and it makes me mad when the history channel has dumb reality shows that have nothing to do with history…Shows like Ice Truckers or Swamp People? Please…BUT! If it’s a competing cooking or baking show, I will watch those, because that’s what I love to do myself.
Did I ever tell you that I was contacted by a casting producer to cast for “Halloween Baking Championship” and “Holiday Baking Championship“ back in April 2017? I was so excited, but the timing was bad and I had to turn it down probably the chance of a lifetime, but the thought of being in front of millions of people if I had been cast, seemed really scary to me!
But give me the good old classics, whether it be this classic Banana Cream Delight and/or a good ol’ classic Hitchcock movie and you’ll see that I’ll never turn that down. 🙂
