MY KIND OF COOKING COOKBOOK
I created this recipe in the backseat of my car. No Kidding. I forgot we were invited to a friend's house for dinner. As I was walking into Walmart, I ran into my friend's husband. He said, "I'll see you in an hour". All of the sudden, I remembered we were supposed to have dinner at their house and bring the dessert. I write cookbooks so I couldn't buy a dessert. As I wandered around the store, I spotted the bananas. My husband loves bananas! What could I make with bananas? He loves banana pudding. What could I do to jazz up banana pudding? Then it came to me, trifle! I will make a trifle. I grabbed all the ingredients (I used already prepared vanilla pudding cups instead of instant pudding). Went to the dish section of the store and picked up a trifle bowl. I talked the nice lady behind the deli counter into washing the bowl for me. Then after paying for everything, I went out to my car and made the dessert in the backseat.
This easy to prepare desert has become not only my husband's favorite dessert, but friends ask me to make it over and over again.
When the Christian singer Steven Curtis Chapman and his band came to our town for a concert, this is one of the desserts I made for them. During the break in the concert, I went to the Green Room to clean up. When I got there, I found one of the band members with a spoon, getting every drop of the Caramel Banana Trifle out of the bowl. He was embarrassed to be caught, but I was flattered that he liked the dessert so much that he was practically licking the bowl.
Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!
