Hello Friends!

I have been in the biggest blogger funk lately so I apologize for the lack of posting. Sometimes trying to keep up with everything can get so overwhelming and make you question yourself and why you even started in the first place. I just needed some time to reflect and I realized the reason I was so down was because I was comparing myself to what others were doing and constantly trying to keep up and do more. I've only been blogging for about a year now but I am definitely guilty of comparing myself to other bloggers and forgetting why I started in the first place.

 Thankfully I was able to get some time off over the Easter Holiday and really think about this and I came to the decision that I was going to take things back the the basics of why I started my blog and that was simply to share outfits, beauty products and anything else that I enjoy or don't enjoy with you guys! It wasn't about having prettiest Instagram feed, or the best handbags, or making sales (although I do appreciate it when you guys purchase through my Liketoknow.it app) butit was just about sharing. So with that being said I hope you guys still choose to follow along and enjoy the new and improved "real" me! 

Okay rant is over and now back to what I really wanted this blog post to be about, something that makes me almost as happy as new clothes...dessert! Not just any dessert, my husbands favorite banana pudding recipe that I make for him every year. There is just something about this dessert that reminds me of the South and more importantly home! Please keep in mind I am not a food blogger at all, major respect for them! I just wanted to share this dessert with you guys because I got a lot of questions about it when I posted it on my Instagram stories and it's super yummy!


  • 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese (this is the secret ingredient)
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 5 oz pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 8 oz container of frozen whipped topping
  • 3 cups of cold milk 
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas 
  • 1 box of Nilla wafers (you won't use them all but I just ate the rest of them, they are so delicious!) 

  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.  Pour in the condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add in 1/2 of the whipped topping and stir.

  • Line the bottom the bottom of your dish with the Nilla wafers, then add the sliced bananas evenly over wafers. Spread with pudding mixture. I repeat these steps 3 times and add my remaining Nilla wafers to the top. Then just pop in the fridge to chill for 4-5 hours before serving. 


Leave me a comment if you decide to make this recipe and tell me what you think! As always, I appreciate you all following along and allowing me to share the good and the bad.
 Have a great day friends!
