Banana Pudding: Can't believe I made this!

You're looking at an icon of southern cooking...Banana Pudding! Many southern women can make this dish blindfolded with one hand tied behind their backs. But this southern girl needs a good bit of help in the kitchen! My grandma is a great cook, but her version of a recipe is, "Well, you take about this much flour, and a little bit of buttermilk..." That just didn't help me!

The only way I was able to pull this off was to keep my nose in Christy Jordan's Southern Plate cookbook. Southern Plate is actually the website for which the cookbook was named. Christy has a vast collection of recipes for the southern food I love, translated into real recipes AND step-by-step pictures :) The recipes are accompanied by captivating tales that are sure to elicit a tear, a sigh, or a LOL. Go on over there and see if you don't agree. 

What about you? What resources have helped you become a better cook, homemaker, etc.?

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. Your banana pudding looks too yummy. My grandmother used to make this but my mother never had the time she was always working outside of the home. So I never learned this. I will have to see if I can duplicate it from a recipe. Thanks for directing me to Southern Plate. I am now following. I will be back to read more.
