Thank You, Thank You, Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Chris, just had to tell you this. I came across your Banana Pudding recipe and it brought back such wonderful childhood memories. And then when I saw where you got the recipe, I just had to check and see if I ever had that magazine. When I cut up a magazine, I save the cover, table of contents and index of recipes, plus recipes of course that we like. lol I was so happy to find out that I had the mag. I can't get over all the great recipes that were in that mag. And I found the pudding recipe. Will let you know when we make it. Thanks again !!!!!!!
