Pudding From Scratch

Isn't it amazing how different things are nowadays? Small things like instant chocolate pudding. I have a cookbook that I purchased at a thrift store or garage sale (I don't remember where) with a recipe for chocolate pudding. I am sure that most people my age grew up going to the grocery store and buying (or not buying depending on your parents) JELL-O chocolate pudding. It isn't inconceivable that pudding can be made from scratch at home but it sure would be a stretch for a lot of people. I wonder how many mothers in this day and age would send their children to school with pudding if they had to make it from scratch?


Naturally I made some pudding of my own to see how difficult it really is. Surprisingly easy AND delicious. It has no weird "homemade-y" taste and is just as good if not better than store bought. Not that we ever really bought pudding anyways....


Aren certainly enjoyed it.
If you have any fun suggestions for normally store bought things that I could try to make at home let me know! I always like a good challenge.

Ciao,

Yes Aren always gets to enjoy the things I make... plus I already had eaten my pudding earlier. I couldn't wait.
