Recipe Spotlight

Banana Pudding

I didn’t see my son, Lance Corporal Eric Harris, for more than two years after he enlisted in the Marines after high school. And when I saw him for the first time at the airport last fall, I just grabbed hold of him and busted out crying. When we got home, the first thing he ate was two bowls of my banana pudding. He’s a true Southern boy! It’s a dessert, but you can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. —Stephanie Harris, Montpelier, Virginia
