    Everyone has a favorite childhood food and desserts are often at the top of the list. This simple pudding has the flavor and texture even big kids will love. Whole graham crackers are layered with pudding and sliced bananas for a different twist on this classic.
    One of my food friends from the local Ponderosa Steakhouse, shared this recipe with me. It was his favorite dish made by Grandma Eloise. How sweet . . . and it is.
