This is going to sound strange, and may possibly cause some of you to lose mad respect for me, but this whole Chocolate Chip-Nutella Banana Bread business began with last week's episode of Jersey Shore.

When I first moved to California, my family was surprised by my enthusiasm for camping. Weren’t there bugs? Don’t you have to sleep on the ground?
