Alright, we took one bite of this
deliciousness and just about died.
I'm not a huge fan of bananas and I admit I was
a little skeptical to try it, but I totally trusted our brother
when he said we had to try this.
All he had to say is that it was Paula Dean's recipe.
It was so wonderfully creamy, smooth,
and downright wicked....that we've
Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding
2 bags Pepperidge Farm Chessmen cookies
6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5-ounce) box instant French vanilla pudding (our brother used banana pudding)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping thawed, or equal amount sweetened whipped creamDirections
Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Our brother said they've tried it with coconut cream,
a strawberry lemon combination,
and next we'll have to try something with chocolate!
We've had so much fun playing together as a family
and it was super hard to see them go this morning!
This week we are hoping to finish off some of the finishing details
for Candace's master bedroom.
We'll be hanging all the curtains and hopefully getting those bedside tables
painted so we can show you our IKEA hack!
