      Let's bring these oldies but goodies back I say! This nanna pudding was delicious. Every bite had you coming back for more! We enjoyed it for Thanksgiving this year and the family wants it on the menu for Christmas, so it was definately a big success!

      Ahhh, memories! This recipe takes me back to my childhood, when every Sunday after church we would head to my great-grandmother's house for Sunday dinner, a true Southern spread. Pretty much every meal ended with my favorite dessert...banana pudding. And this one tastes almost exactly like hers. I did leave off the meringue because I don't care for it. I just add a dollop of whipped cream instead and relax, sit back and enjoy my banana pudding...and the memories. Thank you so much for posting this!
