Late post BUT, I am here to share something short, sweet and meaningful. Yesterday I had a bit of writers block…I was debating on the best topic to write about until my hubby mentioned a craving he was having…
As much as I love cooking, incorporating many different spices and flavors, there is only a handful of things I will make ONLY after I’ve called my mommy and my grandma. They’ve been my pioneers for each and every meal I create. Growing up cooking since the tender age of six has truly expanded my taste and talent whenever I put my hands to work.
But getting back to the topic, the hubby brought up banana pudding and asked me if I could fulfill the task of making this “ultimate” dessert that is very popular in our family. Typically it’s our grandmother’s touch when making this dish. I looked back at him and said “challenge accepted.” I called my grandma and she was on point with everything I needed, sent me my breakdown and I got to work. I will admit, it did take a lot more time to make mainly because I always put my heart into everything, so I had to take pay attention to each detail with precision and accuracy. My biggest challenge was the meringue, but I managed and it came out absolutely perfect.
I’m dedicating this post to the star of my topic and everyone who can relate to Grandma’s Banana Pudding. She still knows how to throw down in the kitchen. I am proud to have the skill of creating so many memorable dishes. I will always cherish the memories of taste testing her food before dinner time. My taste buds have been reminded of the memories of home, holidays, and family time. I’m quite proud of myself for achieving this accomplishment and it actually tasted WONDERFUL.
Nothing like good ol’ home cooking. Thank you mommy and grandma for raising a short little southern cook.
