I'm going through my favorite blogs the other day and Octoberfarm, way at the top of my list, has a Banana Pudding recipe. My first thought is "Who needs another Banana Pudding recipe". I almost didn't bother to read on, but I was afraid she had new pictures of "Teddy" her dog. Now this dog is so precious that I could just kiss his face right off. I actually kiss my fingertips and touch the computer screen every time I visit this blog. I know, I know, back to the Banana Pudding.
Like Jaz says most of the time she makes everything from scratch, whipped cream, pudding,etc., but there are sometimes you really don't have to do that. Like now.
Yes Jaz ,I think this will become every ones new favorite Banana Pudding recipe. It for sure is mine. Thanks for sharing it with us and I hope you don't mind me sharing it again. I certainly would not want anyone to miss this experience. Please stop at Octoberfarm and give Teddy a kiss and let him take you for a walk through the beautiful garden.
