As a mother of two boys, it warms my heart when they enjoy something I cook! Banana pudding is one of their favorite! This time tested recipe is even sweeter now because my mother, their "Nanna" loved it so! She is no longer with us, but I never hear them ask me to make "Nanna Puddin'" that I don't think of her!
