In honor of Mother's Day, Tamron shares her mom's banana pudding recipe

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.
