My mother is the most loving person. She was at every track meet, every science fair. But the one thing I love most about her is that compassionate spirit she has for anyone.

My mom admittedly is not a big cook. My dad did most of the cooking when we grew up. But my mother does a really tasty banana pudding. And whenever she makes it, it’s the first thing that's gone! My mom is quite proud of it, and she should be — because it's tasty!

The trick is to make sure you refrigerate it for at least 8 hours. It will be tempting to eat it sooner, but don't give in. The wait is worth it.
