Personal Notes:
Every time I make one of these puddings, I think of MaMa. I always put it in my large Yellow glass bowl...just like hers. That's how I remember her making & serving it. If only I could go back and sit at her table once more...let her dish me up a warm bowl of her delicious banana pudding...Sweet memories! You'll have to watch Dad...he likes to eat all the cookies out of the pudding and leave the bananas behind!
