Desserts made from whole foods rather than those made with refined sugars are much more satisfying, take longer to digest, and therefore prevent the need to keep going back for more. — Health coach Sally Eisenberg, certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Columbia University, accredited by the Association of Drugless Practitioners, founder of Nourish Ur Life.
I don’t know how it happened, but I’ve developed quite a fondness (and following) for my versions of Southern classics like fried chicken, biscuits, and even banana cream pie. Indian food is all about layers of flavor, so I approach these foods with the same agenda. In my version of banana pudding, I layer bananas with an incredibly rich vanilla crème pâtissier, a slightly salty caramel sauce, generous spoonfuls of whipped cream, and the requisite vanilla wafers to create a trifle-like dessert that promises to get even the most Southern of Southerners drooling. I keep the caramel on the soft side so that, even after being refrigerated, it retains a somewhat saucy quality. It goes without saying to use the freshest eggs you can find for the pudding.
