Moms & Banana Barf


When I think about the mothers I have in my life, I think of the tasty dessert our family affectionately calls "banana barf." Ok, it doesn't sound as appetizing as it truly is. It's amazing. And that is what the mother-figures in my life are: incredibly amazing. Here's the recipe- try it out! 
Love you Mom, Happy Mother's Day! 

(my sister put this site together of all of my Mamaw's and Mamaw Keith's (great grandma) favorite recipes. It's still in progress and needs photos of the food; but it's a fabulous place for tasty southern, delicious recipes).

 I am also blessed to have an amazing mom-in-law. I love you Vernita, and am inspired by your incredible kindness, support, love, compassion, and sweetness.

I simply couldn't ask for more amazing moms.

 Growing up, I thought all kids were this close to their grandmas- then I found out it just wasn't true. I'm thankful that these women are my friends, confidants, supporters, and so much more than grandma's. I love you guys and am so glad to be your granddaughter!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there!
