oh yum! homemade pudding is always the best!
Wow, that's so easy--love it!
The depth of flavor that homemade pudding has is unparalleled! Yummmmy!
I need to start using chocolate pudding as medicine, LOL.
Hmm... I've always used good ol' Jello. I think I'll give this one a go. Oooh! Can you do rice pudding next?
I haven't had pudding in years, this is killing me! I need to make some now.
This looks calorie-wise too using the fat free milk:D
This is something that is truly under-rated. We always think about "buying" chocolate pudding, and never about making it from scratch. This is definitely something I wont to try out.
Although I love chicken soup, a pudding would win out each and every time!
Looks good enough to eat! LOL Can't go wrong with chocolate, eh? Yumm...
I knew there had to be an easy way to make pudding from scratch!
I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
Mmmmm....chocolate pudding....I'm making this tonight for my boys! :-)
It's safe to assume that the "3 cups free milk" means "non fat" or "fat free" milk, right?
