Peanut Butter ‘n’ Banana Pudding
WHEN my grandmother cooked at a small country school, she earned the reputation of good cook. This recipe was given to her when she was a young mother and it has been a family favorite for years. The bananas pair well with the creamy homemade pudding and the peanuts add a nice crunch.
