While I was craving Arroz con Leche and Flan, my Mother-in-Law was cooking traditional sweet treats for her small group of 8 (yes, I said EIGHT!) children. By far Daddy D’s favorite sweet food tradition is this Easy Banana Pudding recipe that she would whip up, straight from her own Southern childhood.

Especially their Navel Oranges and other citrus fruits!
Thanksgiving Leftovers! My sister in law has been here and so we started early with our Thanksgiving feasting. She cooked earlier this week, and we still have pans and pans of food in the fridge.
