Banana pudding is a delicious dessert that reminds me of being a kid. I was reminded of this when my stepdad’s sister-in-law brought banana pudding to a 4th of July party. It was so good I have to admit I ate a bowl, and then hid a bowl in my Mom’s refrigerator for later. I finally got the recipe and made a few little tweaks. This is the final result and I have to say, it is pretty good. Enjoy!
One of the first times Johnna and I hung out after meeting each other, we decided to have dinner at my place with a couple of our mutual friends. When Johnna showed up with this banana pudding, I knew we were destined to be friends. *smile*
