Gosh, who doesn’t like banana pudding? It is so basic, so simple, so easy to make and yet so very good. On most days if you were to take a look in my fridge you would find two things a big ol’ pitcher of sweet tea and a bowl of banana pudding. I hope ya’ll will make this little bit of southern heaven and come to love it as much as we do.
