My grandma’s staple summer dessert – icebox cake with simple layers of graham crackers and vanilla pudding, topped with Cool Whip and graham cracker crumbs.
A couple of weekends ago, I was doing some cleaning up in the kitchen when all of a sudden I started craving my grandma’s icebox cake. The thought came crashing into my head like Super Grover flies into a scene on Sesame Street (this is life right now), and I couldn’t shake it, so I made it a few days later for our Sunday dinner and it totally tasted like I was sitting at my grandma’s house.
This icebox cake was one of her specialties for as long as I can remember, and from what I understand, something she had been making since my mom was a little girl. It’s a very simple dessert with simple ingredients, but it’s one of those feel-good dishes that excites you when you see it sitting on the table. It really epitomizes the notion that food doesn’t always have to be fancy or made to impress, but it should make people feel comfortable.
