This is Amy. You've met her before here. In an ideal world, Amy, Food Network's newest star, Anne Thornton and I would be best friends. We're all blond, we all love rap music and we all love dessert probably more than anyone should. In this little scenario, Anne would come up with the recipes, like this one for Salted Caramel Banana Pudding Pie (her signature dessert), Amy would make it and I would eat it. I mean, they could eat it too, but that would be my job. I have to contribute something right? But Anne lives on the East Coast so we can't live the dream of blasting ‘Paul Revere‘ while becoming charmingly dusted with flour as we bake our 5th batch of something wonderful (you know among other reasons like we have never actually met or that, oh um, she's a tv star). So for now, we'll just have to follow along with her recipes, making sure to keep OUR roles intact – Amy cooking, me eating. I've been looking to incorporate more tutorial type posts in to the blog but I lack time to do it all. Amy will be stepping in to do some posting. We're going to free form it right now and see how it goes. And when I saw this recipe come across my inbox I knew it would be the perfect first dessert for her to make for me, uh, I mean the blog.
Okay, um disregard the order of these photos. I guess, had I actually made it, I would have known what order to put the pictures in…Maybe my current system in flawed, but my stomach is certainly ok with it for now. So per Amy, it was really helpful to be as prepared with all the ingredients, as possible, before you get started. And she'd also like to warn that parts of this recipe are somewhat hard to juggle while caring for kid's at the same time (for example, stirring the pudding continually for 15 minutes). This is a great nap time recipe but there are three steps to it so if your kid sleeps only a short period of time, I would wait until you had an extra hand around the house.
