Y’all why is it already February?!?


It seems like just yesterday I was taking my Christmas tree down and putting it away. But then again I did not actually take my Christmas tree down until the second week of January. I am never ready to put my Christmas tree away and if I could get away with leaving it up all year without judgement then I would do just that.

Anywho…Back to February…It is Black History Month! The month in which we celebrate all things melanated from achievements, to culture, history, music, and of course food. Being raised in the South, it should come as no surprise that many of my fondest memories of being with family included food in some way. Food was and still is a big part of birthdays, church gatherings, holiday celebrations, and family reunions. At any one of these events you would definitely find on the table cornbread, collard greens, fried chicken, candied yams, pound cake, and banana pudding just to name a few. Yep I come from a big family so that means lots of food.

Now at these family gatherings someone was always going to ask who made what because some relatives are just known for making certain delicious dishes. My mom makes amazing potato salad, my aunt makes delicious buttery cornbread, and my cousin makes the best homemade banana pudding ever. His banana pudding is so good in fact, that no one has ever been able to get their hands on his special recipe, but that will not stop me from sharing my recipe with you that I believe is pretty darn similar and just as tasty.

When you make a homemade banana pudding recipe there are 3 very important elements that you absolutely must have and they are bananas (obviously), vanilla wafer cookies, and pudding. To make a good banana pudding you want to choose bananas that are ripe but not mushy. For the vanilla wafers, you can choose according to your preference of brand. When it comes to pudding you can make it from scratch or a box, again this is a preference and depends on how much time you have. These are the basics, but if you want to take an extra step and create a meringue topping or use a pre-made whipped topping that will give you everything that you need to create a banana pudding for any get together.

But just in case you need more recipes to cover you or you do not want to be in charge of making the banana pudding, then no worries because I got you covered with 27 of my black food blogger friends as we come together to participate in a Black History Month Virtual Potluck. Each one of us have teamed up to share with you 28 yummy recipes that include African, Creole, Caribbean, and Southern influence. Each blogger has chosen to share with you so many great recipes in fact that you could make 1 each day of Black History Month to have a tasty celebration.
