Eating, Drinking, and Linking...Banana Cream Pie!

I am by NO means a cook! I do cook for my family almost nightly, but I keep it simple. Very simple. Nothing fancy! I like to make soups, stews, and I use my crockpot often. Anything on the grill works, too. Today I'm linking up with Teaching Tales Along the Yellow Brick Road for this yummy summer linky! I hope to find some new (simple) recipes to add to my repertoire.
Like I said I am no chef, or baker for that matter.  I have some basic meals and desserts that I make often. We rarely go out to eat and that's fine with me (just not part of our budget).

One dessert, in particular, that I really like to make from scratch is banana cream pie. The recipe seemed daunting at first, then I made it and discovered it's not as difficult as I thought.

 Click ❀HERE❀ to see the original recipe with step by step directions and photos of each step (which I always like). DISCLAIMER: This is NOT a photo of MY pie! LOL! I wish mine looked like this!
Here are some tips and tricks that I follow when making this pie:
*To save a bit of time, I usually use a store bought graham cracker crust. (Everything else is from scratch. I do whip the cream for the topping, too.)
*Don't forget to press the clear wrap over the pudding! If you don't you will get a "skin" on the top! YUCK!
*I slice bananas and put a layer on the bottom before I put the pudding filling in the crust.
*I garnish with bananas, but not until we are ready to eat it.
*Don't let this pie hang around too long. Bananas tend to get dark and watery after a day or two.

I hope you try out this scrumptious pie! It is one of my family's favorites!

Bon Appetit!

  2. That looks delicious! I am not a cook either and use as many easy recipes as I can. It's a good thing my husband can cook!
